2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport

Reviews

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport is well-equipped as standard, but some key features are extra that we’d like to see included. For that and its quickly climbing price, we give it 7 out of 10 here, mostly due to a decent infotainment system and options list.

The base Discovery Sport comes with all-wheel drive, leather upholstery, LED headlights, 18-inch wheels, and a 10-inch touchscreen navigation system with Bluetooth for $38,795 (including $995 destination charge). Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are optional as part of a $300 package, as are most active safety features, unfortunately.

The S trim starts at $42,495 and includes 12-way power front seats, satellite navigation with traffic updates, and a few more features, while the SE model gets 19-inch wheels, a fully digital 12.3-inch driver information display and additional safety features for $45,595. We’d ante up for this model, just to gain that critical safety gear.

R-Dynamic models start with the S trim and include sportier styling on the fender flares, wheels, and more. The R-Dynamic S includes unique 18-inch wheels, and the same features as the regular S model, but this time for $44,095, while the R-Dynamic SE adds dark 19-inch wheels, premium LED headlights, and the same equipment as the SE model for $47,145.

Finally, the R-Dynamic HSE that sits at the top of the range gets the mild-hybrid engine for a horsepower bump, 20-inch wheels, 14-way seats with red stitching, a rear mirror camera, Meridian audio, and all the active safety features available for $53,795.

That’s exactly a $15,000 difference between the top and bottom of the range, and as you might imagine, the sweet spot lies somewhere in the middle. We say skip the R-Dynamic treatment to save a bit, no matter how cool it looks.

While Jaguars get an extended warranty with free maintenance, Land Rover offers 4-year/50,000-mile coverage.
