Introduction

What Car? says...

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is one of the exceptions to the rule that a car with Sport in its name must be a high-performance model – or at least have racy go-faster looks.

What this large SUV does do is offer a more compact and affordable alternative to the enormous Land Rover Discovery, and if you peer beneath the surface you’ll see that it has more in common with the Range Rover Evoque. While the Evoque focusses on chiselled, catwalk styling, though, the Discovery Sport’s boxier lines mean it's better at catering for space-hungry families.

Read on for our in-depth review, including which engine and trim combination makes the most sense, whether it feels good to drive and how comfortable your passengers will be. If you're looking for a 4x4 with more of a focus on size or looks, visit our full separate reports on the Land Rover Discovery and Land Rover Evoque.

Don't forget, if you buy a new car of any make and model, it pays to check whether you can save thousands of pounds using the free What Car? New Car Buying service, which can help you find the best prices, including top Land Rover deals.
