Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review: Land Rover Discovery Sport

Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

An SUV that rightfully ignores sportiness and focuses on comfort, flexibility and downright classiness

What appears a light evolution of Land Rover’s bestseller is actually a bit of a tech revolution, with some properly functioning media systems up front and more forward-thinking architecture beneath.

For now, the mild-hybrid tech really is mild, and you’ll likely plump for the best diesel you can afford and barely notice the little nibbles of electric power that help smooth out the driving process. But they very much do, helping keep this car right at the top of the class if it’s comfort and relaxation you’re after. Niggling doubts about reliability – from past, first-hand experience of the Sport – and its conservative performance are the only things stopping us from awarding it a higher mark.
