2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs. Its Competition

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class are the heavy-hitters in the compact SUV segment, offering impressive tech, driving dynamics, and interior quality respectively.

Jeep’s compact/mid-size Cherokee is somewhat long in the tooth, but offers more off-road capability than most other crossovers with a dash of luxury thrown in.

The Volvo XC60 emphasizes on-road comfort, practicality, and design over all else, so if off-road prowess isn’t of the highest order, add it to your list.
