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.
2022 Land Rover Discovery Sport Overview
Choosing Your Land Rover Discovery Sport
The 2022 Land Rover Discovery Sport SUV is available in five trims: S, SE, R-Dynamic S, and R-Dynamic SE.
Pricing starts at $43,424 including destination and goes to $48,475 for the R-Dynamic SE before options. A fully-loaded Discovery Sport can cost well over $50,000.
Every Discovery Sport is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 246 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Four-wheel drive with terrain selection is standard, along with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
According to EPA estimates, the Discovery Sport gets 19 miles per gallon city, 24 mpg highway, and 20 combined. Towing capability maxes out at 4,409 pounds.
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The Discovery Sport is a compact SUV with ample room for five. Capacity increases to seven with the optional third row ($1,200), although it's clearly designed for children.
The standard cabin offers 27.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, and 55.6 cubic feet with it folded. Three-row models can hold just 4.1 cubic feet with all rows in use, or 23.3 cubic feet when configured for five. With both rear rows down, load space expands to 51.2 cubic feet.
The Discovery Sport makes a strong showing when it comes to driver assistance technology. Every model is equipped with automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, parking sensors, driver alertness monitoring, wade sensing, and traffic sign recognition.
The Driver Assist Pack ($1,950) for the S trims adds blind-spot monitoring with evasive steering assist, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and safe exit assist. The SE models come standard with everything except adaptive cruise control, which is a $1,200 standalone option. The SE also gets adaptive headlights with automatic high beams.
A surround-view camera is available on all models for $700.
The Discovery Sport's infotainment system features a 10-inch touchscreen, navigation, six speakers, three USB ports, HD and satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a phone signal booster, and wireless device charging.
A 12-speaker Meridian sound system ($350) is optional on the S, and the SE can get a 14-speaker Meridian system for $800.
The Discovery Sport starts out with leather upholstery, heated 12-way power front seats, a power liftgate, a universal home remote, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic wipers, LED headlights, rear fog lights, power-folding side mirrors, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
For $3,050, the Family Pack adds three-row seating, an interior-view mirror, a fixed glass roof, third-rowing cooling, and a cargo area partition net. The Cold Climate Pack ($625) provides a heated steering wheel and a heated windshield with heated washers. The $900 Hot Climate Pack tacks on independent second-row climate control and an air cabin air purification system. A black exterior trim package is available for $600.
The Dynamic Handling Pack offers an adaptive suspension system and red brake calipers for $1,250. Individual options include driver memory settings ($200), heated second-row seats ($510), and wood or titanium interior trim ($400).
The SE comes with 20-inch wheels — in addition to its aforementioned safety upgrades and optional 14-speaker Meridian system. Other features and options are shared with the S.
The R-Dynamic S adds sporty styling touches to the S. Special features include black exterior trim, ebony leather seats with red stitching, an ebony headliner, paddle shifters, signature door sill plates, and a perforated leather steering wheel.
The R-Dynamic SE combines the SE's higher equipment level with the R-Dynamic treatment. Dark satin grey wheels are exclusive to this trim.
The extra standard features found on the SE are worth the worth bump in price. Not so with the R-Dynamic treatment, which is purely cosmetic and not particularly attractive anyway.
