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.

Trim: HSE

This top-spec trim comes with all the toys you'd ever need including keyless entry, a Meridian sound system, adaptive cruise control and 14-way electric seats. However, it's pricey and comes on big 20in wheels that don't help the low-speed ride.

Engine: 2.0 D240

This 237bhp twin-turbo diesel makes light work of the Discovery Sport's bulk with 0-62mph in just 7.4sec, and is the best bet if you need to tow. Just bear in mind that it's a fair bit pricier than the D180.
