Review

The Land Rover 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

Urban Edition is a fine choice, especially for those looking for the bigger engine options. It still nets you a number of luxuries such as an upgraded Pivi Pro infotainment system with sat-nav, an electric tailgate, 12-way electric front seats, a panoramic glass roof, the ClearSight camera-based rearview mirror, along with traffic sign recognition to help prevent you inadvertently speeding.

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.
