Expert Rating

Not Available
20 City / 25 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport OVERVIEW

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is a compact luxury SUV that is packed to gills with technology and convenience features. The interior trim in the Land Rover Discover equals or surpasses more expensive rivals and the starting price of $37,695 makes it a bargain.

While the Discovery Sport is rolling in luxury it’s just as comfortable off road as it is cruising down the highway. Standard all-wheel drive combined with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out 240 horsepower reduces the chances of getting stuck in the snow or mud. Optional third-row seating provides plenty of room to pack in the whole family.

What's New for 2017

Changes are minimal for the 2017 model year, with small tweaks to the look and some brand new optional tech equipment.

The 2017 Discovery—or Disco, as it's known colloquially—Sport is now available with Land Rover's InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, which incorporates a 10.2-inch widescreen display. Other new options include a Driver Condition Monitor, which keeps an eye on the driver to make sure they are not getting drowsy. Lane Keep Assist is also available on the Disco Sport.

A new Dynamic Design Package adds slight changes to the front and rear bumpers, integrated tailpipes, gloss black 20-inch wheels as well as an upgraded interior trim and metal pedal covers.

Choosing Your Land Rover Discovery Sport

The Discovery Sport is available in three trim levels and numerous optional packages let you customize to your heart's content. A turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder engine producing 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque comes standard across all trims, as does a nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

The Discovery Sport comes standard with seating for five, but an optional third-row package ups the seating capacity to seven. Cargo space comes in at 60 cubic feet so you have plenty of room for luggage or gear.

Power front seats, Land Rover InControl Remote & Protect, a rearview camera and two-zone climate control are all standard with plenty of interior upgrades available with optional packages

The three trim levels are:


The SE is the base model and starts at $37,695. It is nicely equipped with partial leather upholstery, power front seats, automatic headlights and rain-sensing wipers, a rearview camera, and an eight-inch color touchscreen to control the GPS and 10-speaker sound systems. The SE comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels that give it a distinctive, sporty look.

A number of optional packages are available. Here are just a couple of available packages to trick out your SE:

Climate Comfort Package:This $1,300 package adds heated front and rear seats, heated windshield, and heated steering wheel to keep everyone toasty warm on cold mornings.

Convenience Package:This package will set you back $1,100 but it adds passive entry, powered gesture tailgate (which lets you open the tailgate with a kicking gesture under the rear bumper), Homelink and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.


The HSE adds a bit of luxury to the mix with grained leather seats, Xenon headlights with an LED signature, a fixed panoramic roof, passive entry, and a powered tailgate coming as standard equipment. The HSE starts at $42,195.

The optional entertainment package upgrades the audio system to a Meridian with 17 speakers including a subwoofer, and adds the InControl Touch Pro infotainment system with navigation and InControl Pro Services. This package is a bit pricey at $3,000.

The Driver Assist Plus Package will set you back $1,100, but adds a variety of safety features including autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition and the InControl Touch navigation system.

HSE Luxury

This is the top-of-the-line for the Land Rover Discovery Sport and it’s priced at $46,595. It comes with all of the standard equipment on the HSE plus it gets configurable ambient interior lighting. It also upgrades upholstery to Windsor leather, and adds InControl Touch, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

A Vision Assist package is available for $1,900 and adds adaptive Xenon headlights, automatic high-beam assist, surround camera system, and blind spot monitoring with reverse traffic detection.

A HUD and Park Assist package adds a very cool head-up display that projects speed and direction information on the bottom of the windshield as well as parallel and perpendicular park assist. This package costs $1,800.

CarsDirect Tip

The optional third-row seating is probably not worth the extra money and doesn’t offer the legroom you would expect in a true three-row vehicle. The HSE is nicely equipped and the driver assist plus package adds some very high-end safety features making it our recommendation as the ideal Disco Sport.
