Land Rover Discovery vs. Discovery Sport: Interior Features

Any Land Rover model in the lineup will spoil you with cutting-edge technology and plush comforts, so how do the Discovery vs. Discovery Sport stack up? Both models can accommodate five passengers with the option for a seven-seat layout with three rows. But, there are some notable differences as well.

  • Cargo Space: The Discovery is the larger model with a whopping 74.3 cubic feet of trunk space when its rear seats are folded flat. The Discovery Sport offers a respectable 55.6 cubic feet of cargo space, which is still generous enough for most St. Paul drivers.
  • Infotainment: Both models include Touch Pro™ and an 11.4-inch touchscreen, but only the Discovery includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ as standard features. You’ll find these features optional in the Discovery Sport.
  • Safety Tech: While the Discovery and Discovery Sport are exceptionally safe and well-appointed models, the Discovery has Cross Traffic Alert and a Blind Spot Monitor as standard features – optional on the Discovery Sport.
  • Upholstery: The Discovery has luxe leather seating standard, while the Discovery Sport includes leather upholstery as an upgrade from standard cloth seating.

The Discovery’s impressive luxury and spacious cabin are perfect for many Edina drivers, but these features come at a higher price tag of $56,000* MSRP. The 2022 Land Rover Discovery Sport has a lower starting price point of $43,200* MSRP with plenty to offer you on your daily commute.

Land Rover Discovery vs. Discovery Sport: Performance & Capability

Between the Discovery vs. Discovery Sport, which SUV has the stronger performance? Both are expertly engineered with smooth handling and robust power, but they offer different advantages.

  • Tow Ratings: The Discovery has the much higher towing maximum at 6,614 pounds, and though the Discovery Sport towing holds it own at 4,409 pounds, it can’t keep up with its larger counterpart.
  • Engine Output: When it comes to base output, both models share similar specs from a shared turbocharged four-cylinder engine. However, the Discovery’s 296-hp minimum bests the 246-hp output of the Discovery Sport.
  • Fuel Tank: The Land Rover Discovery has a much larger fuel tank at 23.5 gallons compared to the 17.7-gallon tank of the Discovery Sport.
