2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport Ratings & Reliability
One would expect a more from Land Rover's entry into the luxury compact SUV market segment. Instead, the Discovery Sport struggles in comparisons against even mass-market small SUVs. Power delivery from the turbo four-cylinder is spiky, with either too little or too much acceleration, and the transmission is neither smooth nor responsive. The Sport proved capable off-road, commendably ascending our rock hill even without low range gearing. But the on-road ride is stiff, and handling is far from nimble. A recent freshening spiffed up the previously austere cabin. The infotainment system looks glossy and high-tech, but it's unintuitive and slow to respond. To its credit, the Discovery Sport has a roomy rear seat. Updates for 2020 include standard forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.

Land Rover Discovery Sport 2019
The compact Discovery Sport is based on the Evoque, with seating for five or, with its tiny optional third-row, seven. It uses a 240-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder mated to a nine-speed automatic. Power delivery is uneven, either too little or too much, and the transmission is neither smooth nor responsive. The ride is stiff-legged. Available safety features include lane-departure, blind-spot warning, and emergency autonomous braking systems. A surround-view 360-degree camera system is offered, too. Land Rover's Terrain Response system provides some off-road capability.
