Land Rover SUVs are phenomenal vehicles inside and out. But between the 2022 Discovery and the 2022 Discovery Sport, which one is best for you? Although they have many similarities, the Discovery is somewhat more powerful and generally better equipped. Some of their differences might stand out for customers in Stamford or Norwalk, so let’s dive into this comprehensive Land Rover Discovery vs. Discovery Sport comparison.



Discovery vs. Discovery Sport: Interior Comparison

Both SUVs have luxury interiors. They come standard with five-person seating and offer a third row if you need to travel with up to seven passengers. Although these options are offered, the Discovery is the larger vehicle and comes with more standard amenities.

To understand the differences between the 2022 Land Rover Discovery and the Discovery Sport, compare their interior features here:

  • Infotainment: Both vehicles will include the 11.4-inch Touch Pro™touchscreen, but if you want additional standard features, the Discovery interior is the one for you. It also includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ as standard, while those features are optional in the Discovery Sport.
  • Upholstery: While the Discovery Sport offers leather as an upgrade, the Discovery comes standard with leather seats.
  • Safety Tech: The Discovery comes standard with a Blind Spot Monitor and Cross Traffic Alert, and both of these features are only optional in the Discovery Sport.
  • Cargo Space: If space is a priority for you, the larger Discovery will be more appealing. It contains up to 74.3 cubic feet of cargo space when the back seats are folded down. The Discovery Sport maxes out at 55.6 cubic feet.

As you can see, the Land Rover Discovery is larger and has more standard features to offer—but it’s also more expensive. The Discovery Sport is the cheaper option, but it lacks in standard amenities compared to the Discovery.

Discovery vs. Discovery Sport: Performance & Capability Comparison

In the area of performance and capability, there’s no wrong choice. It really depends on what you intend on using the vehicle for when you’re out and about in Wilton or Darien. Here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • Tow Ratings: If you intend on towing heavy loads, we would suggest looking into the Discovery. It has a maximum towing capacity of 6,613 pounds, compared to 4,409 pounds for the Discovery Sport.
  • Engine Output: Both engines have a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but the Discovery comes standard with a 296-hp engine. The Discovery Sport contains an engine with 246 hp.
  • Acceleration: There are times when you may need to accelerate from 0mph to 60mph in a quick period of time. Here, the Discovery takes the cake as it only takes 6.9 seconds to ramp up from 0 to 60 mph. The Discovery Sport takes 7.4 seconds.
