How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Even very tall drivers won’t feel cramped in the Discovery Sport. There's plenty of leg room and head room is among the best in the class – it's still fine even if you add the optional panoramic glass roof, which lowers the ceiling slightly. It's not as wide in the front as some of its rivals, though, such as the Kia Sorento

A deep cubby between the front seats houses the USB sockets and is the ideal place to keep your phone out of sight, while the two cupholders placed behind the gear selector can hold large takeaway cups securely. The door pockets are massive – large enough to take a 750ml bottle – and the glovebox is big enough to hold items such as a windscreen scraper, a pair of sunnies and the car’s handbook.

Still, this is one of the few premium-badged cars of its size to offer seven seats, the Mercedes GLB being a notable exception. If you’re willing to go non-premium, the Peugeot 5008Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento have third rows that are more spacious.

Seat folding and flexibility

The second row of seats is split 40/20/40 and you can slide and recline each of the three seats independently.
