2020 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 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport has revised styling and gains a new engine option. The existing 2.0-liter turbo four is now available as a 286-horsepower, 48-volt mild hybrid. (The 286-hp rating is the same as the previous high-output version of the 2.0-liter.) A rearview camera mirror is a newly available. 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 base 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, 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.
