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 S Plus comes as a five-seater as standard, but you can option the extra pair of seats in the rear. It has sportier styling inside and out plus front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view camera, power-folding door mirrors, a powered tailgate, heated windscreen, heated front seats, leather seats (with 12-way electric adjustment), privacy glass, 18in alloy wheels, LED headlights, a 10.0in infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto and sat-nav.

If you must have a petrol, the 197bhp P200 makes the most sense but performance is lethargic and it's juicy – we managed a best 0-60mph time of 9.9sec and a test economy figure of just over 25mpg.
