The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 BMW X3 ventures into M territory, but doesn’t lose sight of its SUV duties. The 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport builds on the automaker’s reputation in all the right ways. It’s comfortable, relatively affordable, and still capable.
