Land Rover Discovery Sport


Current Model
Land Rover's entry into the luxury compact SUV market segment struggles against its peers and even nonluxury 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 Discovery Sport proved to be 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 freshening spiffed up the previously austere cabin. The infotainment system looks glossy and high-tech, but it's unintuitive and slow to respond. To the SUV's credit, its rear seat is roomy. AEB with pedestrian detection and FCW are standard.
2015-2021
2015 Redesign Year
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. New features for 2019 include Android Auto and Apple Carplay compatibility. Beginning with the 2020 model year, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning and keeping assistance are standard. Other updates include a mild freshening in and out. Among the changes, the rotary gear selector was swapped for a more traditional looking lever, a 48-volt mild hybrid system is available, and full exterior LED lighting is standard.
