Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Land Rover Discovery Sport



What is it like on the road?

Yes, in answer to our question: that engine is good. It delivers the performance, refinement and clatter-free quality you’d expect of a premium SUV, and means the Sport no longer sounds like a Transit van. Such a pity it wasn’t in it from the start: let’s hope the model doesn’t suffer because of it. 

Besides, we’ve never had any issue with the way the Disco drives. It’s smooth, soothing and wonderfully calm. You do need to option the £1,800 nine-speed automatic gearbox to make the most of it, but if you do, you’re getting an experience that really isn’t that far detached from a Range Rover’s. And yes, it’ll do all the off-road stuff you expect. And much, much more. 


How about something completely different?
