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: S

On top of the entry-level Discovery Sport's dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, rear-view camera, 17in alloy wheels, ambient interior lighting, dual-zone climate control, a heated windscreen, and its full roster of off-road systems – including Terrain Response to maximise grip, hill descent control to get you down slopes safely and low traction launch – S adds Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto, electrically adjustable and heated front seats, an automatically dimming rear-view mirror, power-folding door mirrors and leather upholstery (although you can choose a synthetic alternative for no extra charge). It's our favourite version.

Engine: 2.0 P200

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.
