Snackable Review: Land Rover Discovery Sport

Land Rover Discovery Sport may look like a Toorak Tractor, but under the stylish exterior, this medium-SUV is much tougher than it looks.

PLUS

  • It's big and spacious. Even the two extra seats in the third-row, when folded down, don’t take much away from the cargo area.
  • The ability to move the second row backwards and forwards adds to the flexibility of the storage area.
  • It’s a capable 4WD, enhanced by technologies such as Wade Sensoring to gauge water crossings, and a Surround Camera System that gives you 360-degree visibility. For those who love adventure, these features will come in handy.
  • The Disco Sport also features seven USB ports. Yes, seven. That’s one for each seat.
  • At base level it offers satellite navigation, reverse camera and automatic braking. Its price is competitive compared to others in its league, starting at just $53,300.

MINUS

  • Compared to other off-roaders, it lacks the hardware.
  • The interiors probably aren’t as luxurious as we would hope and feel cheap.
  • As with most SUVs, it’s got a fairly large turning circle. You’d come to expect that in a car this size, but you might find it challenging, especially if you’re upgrading from a smaller car.
  • It comes with a whole bunch of extra options, but these comes at a price.
