The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class captivates crossover types with its lush cabin and its plush ride; there’s AMG power on tap if you must.
