Review

The Discovery Sport, especially in seven-seat form, is far more practical and family-friendly than rivals such as the Audi Q5 and BMW X3, which is why it's one of our favourite large SUVs. Those German alternatives are ultimately more comfortable, nimbler and fuel-efficient, though, while you can get even more space for less with the excellent Peugeot 5008.

get the best price

R-Dynamic adds sportier alloy wheels, more aggressive front and rear bumpers, black seats with red stitching, a black headlining and R-Dynamic badging to S, SE and HSE trim. We wouldn’t bother unless your head-over-heels for the looks.

This is a plug-in hybrid that combines a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a big battery pack and electric motor. Despite being one of the swiftest models in the range, it’s also the least polluting therefore most company car friendly. The only snag is that you can’t have seven seats. Oh, and it’s rather expensive to buy.
