They may share the same name, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t significant differences between the two models. When you are in the market for a new Land Rover, you may end up not being sure which of these two models is right for you. Hopefully, the following quick comparison will help you out.
Even though they share a similar name, the Land Rover Discovery and Discover Sport are two different models that target two markets and two different types of buyers. There is also a good price difference between the two models.
For those who are unsure which model is best suited to their needs, this small comparison should help.
As mentioned earlier, the Land Rover Discovery is bigger than the Discovery Sport. It has more space to offer. There is up to 2,500 liters of cargo space in the Discovery and it can accommodate up to 7 passengers. The Sport offers only space for 5 passengers, but its trunk can accommodate up to 951 liters with all seats in place.
So you have to ask yourself, do you really need the third row of seats?
The Land Rover Discovery Sport comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine producing 246 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque. Conversely, the Discovery offers a standard 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder with 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The other option is a 3.0-liter V6 engine with 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.
Ultimately, the Land Rover Discovery Sport offers slightly better performance because it is lighter, and it also offers better fuel economy.
Finally, the Discovery Sport is available starting at $ 52,300 while the Discovery is available starting at $ 70,500. Obviously, the level of luxury and refinement is higher in the Discovery, but the Sport is no slouch either in that department.
