What Is The Difference Between The Land Rover Discovery & Land Rover Discovery Sport?

The Land Rover Discovery and Land Rover Discovery Sport are both luxury SUVs that have the off-road nature that Land Rover models are famous for, but on top of that they have luxury features and a spacious design that makes it supremely easy to relax whether you're on dirt or paved roads, but there are some differences between them, which you can find below.

Land Rover Discovery

The larger of the two and the more expensive, the Land Rover Discovery comes standard  a V6 engine that puts out 355 horsepower and can tow trailers up to 8,200 pounds, but it also offers a diesel engine and performance features like the Terrain Response® 2 system to deal with tough terrain. The Discovery also offers an optional third row that brings the seating capacity from five to seven passengers.

Its range of comfort features include everything from available heated rear seats and steering wheel to a panoramic sunroof to up to four-zone climate control, so all seven passengers can enjoy outside light, views, and comfort tech to handle the weather.

Land Rover Discovery Sport

A little smaller with a smaller price tag, the Land Rover Discovery Sport gets its name from the sportiness that drivers feel, which it can thank its lightweight build, nearly 1,000 pounds lighter than the Land Rover Discovery, for. It only has one engine option that isn't quite as powerful as the aforementioned V6, but it can still tow 4,409 pounds and it definitely delivers thrills.

It doesn't have the same cargo capacity, but you can still seat up to seven with the optional third-row, although there isn't quite as much leg room, and it's available with lots of the same features, like a head-up display and safety tech, so your ride is just as enjoyable!
