2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs. Its Competition

2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque are kissing cousins—one’s a little country, the other is a little rock ‘n roll.

The Jeep Cherokee has similar pedigree as the Land Rover, but lacks refinement and overall power, relatively speaking.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC Class is a luxury soft-roader in the same vein, although it doesn’t have the same amenities at its base level.

The Audi Q5 manages better mileage and has better interior tech, but is decidedly pricier.

The BMW X3 is new for this year, and heaps on the interior tech to appeal to more urban buyers.
