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

If you must have a petrol, the 197bhp P200 makes the most sense because performance is decent (0-62mph takes 8.6sec) and it's not too expensive to buy. Just remember that a diesel will be far more efficient and have more grunt low down the rev range.
