If your wish list is pointing you towards a compact SUV with a prestige European badge, you may as well narrow your shortlist down to just one choice – the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
Just one? Well, yes – if you also want the added practicality of seven seats in the one tidy, luxury package.
Pricewise, the Discovery Sport lines up against the Audi Q5 and BMW X3, but neither of those offer that third row seating, despite having similar proportions.
First launched in 2014, early adopters (like yours truly) went for Land Rover’s fresh styling and compact proportions, but ended up with a diesel engine that was… let me say, rather old hat.
