The Differences Between the Land Rover Discovery and the Discovery Sport

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 be unsure as to 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 comparison should help.

Space

The Land Rover Discovery is bigger than the Discovery Sport. It has more space to offer. There is up to 2,500 litres of cargo space in the Discovery and it can accommodate up to seven passengers. The Sport can seat up to five passengers and its trunk can accommodate up to 951 litres with all seats in place.

So you have to ask yourself, do you really need the third row of seats?

Engines

The Land Rover Discovery Sport comes standard with a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder engine producing 237 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. It is also possible to opt for a similar but more powerful engine with 286 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.

Conversely, the Discovery offers a standard 3.0-litre V6 engine with 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. It's also possible to opt for a 3.0-litre diesel V6 that develops 258 horsepower with 443 lb-ft of torque.

Ultimately, the Land Rover Discovery Sport will be the most powerful of the two, both in terms of power and handling. It is also more fuel-efficient.

Price

Finally, the Discovery Sport is available starting at $43,500 while the Discovery starts at $63,900. Obviously, the level of luxury and refinement is higher in the Discovery, but the Sport is no slouch either in that department.
