The differences between the Land Rover Discovery and the Discovery Sport

Both have a similar name and both have a very similar design as well.

So are there really differences between the Land Rover Discover and Discovery Sport? The answer is yes.

In fact, 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 small comparison should help.

Space

As mentioned earlier, the Land Rover Discovery is bigger than the Discovery Sport. It has more space to offer. There is up to 2,500 liters of cargo space in the Discovery and it can accommodate up to 7 passengers. The Sport offers only space for 5 passengers, but its trunk can accommodate up to 951 liters 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-liter 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-liter V6 engine with 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. It's also possible to opt for a 3.0-liter 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 is available starting 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.
