This week we’re taking a look at the 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport. This is the smallest and least expensive Land Rover in the lineup, and it has been lightly refreshed in the front and rear.
Land Rovers are known primarily for two things, great interiors and one of the best all-wheel drive systems you can buy, and Discovery delivers on both.
My review vehicle has the standard engine which is a 2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine. It is mated to a 9-speed automatic. Together they produce 246-horses, but the reality is, it feels like less.
This is the top-of-the-line SE trim, but you can go down to the S, or the entry level Discovery Sport base. Moving to the interior, it is classic Land Rover with rich leather, stitched seats, and soft-touch door panels.
The gauges are configurable and easy-to-read. Everything on the gauge cluster operates from the steering wheel and is very intuitive. As you look through the windshield, you’ll see an easy to read head-up display with sign recognition.
The center console has cup holders and a center armrest with storage. Otherwise, the console is completely vacant of anything other than the gear shifter. In front of that there is a cubby hole that houses a phone charger.
