2022 Land Rover Discovery Sport

Pros: Outstanding off-road capabilities; available third-row seat a rarity in the premium compact SUV class; straightforward control layout; stately cabin materials

Cons: Optional third-row seat is pricey and best suited for children; stingy cargo room behind third row

CG Says: The Land Rover Discovery Sport gets minor changes for the 2022 model year, and popular features such as wireless charging, heated front seats, power tailgate, and keyless entry are now standard. However, the 360-degree camera system, which was standard in 2021, is now optional. The Discovery Sport is a premium-compact crossover SUV that occupies the spot vacated by the LR2 in Land Rover’s lineup. The Discovery Sport offers an optional third-row seat, though it’s sized for small children and/or occasional use. The second-row seats are mounted “stadium-style”—they are two inches higher than the front seats, so rear passengers have better forward visibility. The second row also slides fore and aft 6 inches to favor passenger or cargo room, and ease to entry to third row. The sole engine is a 246-hp 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder. The lone transmission is a 9-speed automatic and all-wheel drive is standard. Available features include a large panoramic sunroof, Autonomous Emergency Braking, blind-spot alert, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, traffic-sign recognition and park assist. The Discovery Sport is a compelling entry into the premium compact SUV segment, offering a comfortable, luxuriously appointed interior; Land Rover’s characteristic off-road prowess; and decent cargo room, all at prices that are highly competitive for the class.
