The 2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport is a distillation of the brand's go-anywhere-in-comfort ethos. The Discovery Sport's off-road driving modes, hill-descent control, and wading sensor system provide more off-road capability than you'll find in an Audi Q5 or a Porsche Macan. The trade-off is that the Discovery Sport's on-road driving experience isn't as engaging as rival SUVs'.


Its cabin is spacious and offers an optional third row of seats, but its environs aren't as refined as what you'll find in the BMW X3 or the Mercedes-Benz GLC-class. Still, for buyers who want considerable off-road capability wrapped in a stylish package, the Discovery Sport is one of the few choices in this mostly on-road-focused segment.
