2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport?

The Land Rover Discovery Sport compact luxury SUV debuted for 2015 as a replacement for the LR2 in the automaker’s lineup. It has standard seating for five, but an optional two-seat third row transforms it into a seven-seat SUV. Power is supplied by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 237 or 286 horsepower, depending on the model. The engine works with a nine-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is standard. Competitors include the Acura RDX, BMW X3 and Audi Q5.

What’s New on the 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport?

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity are now available. A new Landmark Edition with special design cues also joins the lineup.

What Features in the 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport Are Most Important?

Standard features include dual-zone automatic air conditioning, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, partial-leather upholstery, rain-sensing windshield wipers and power-folding heated side mirrors. Available features include a panoramic roof, a hands-free power liftgate, navigation and a Meridian premium stereo.

Should I Buy the 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport?

The Discovery Sport should meet the needs of small families or other buyers looking for a premium SUV with some off-road capability. The interior is luxurious and well-appointed, with plenty of room for five. But space is very limited in the optional third row, which is useful only for children.

The problem child Land Rover

I bought this Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE October 2022. It is January 2024, there are 76,000 miles on it. A month ago, the check engine light came on so I took it in, got the oil changed and had them plug in the diagnostic tool to see what codes came up. They were able to clear most of them but said I needed a solenoid for the cam shaft or something like that...I'm not a mechanic. Friday they put the solenoid in and the check engine light is still on 😡 they said it is an actuator in the engine and that the engine would probably have to be removed $$$$$ I envisioned myself hemorrhaging dollars. They said I should take it to Land Rover in Portland and I said xxxx no. I took it and traded it in on a 2023 Chevy Camaro which will be delivered to my house on Tuesday. My friend in England said they were not good cars and I should've listened. So no more Land Rovers for this chick 🐥



Outstanding vehicle ... gas mileage between 28-32 mpg. Oil changes a bit on the pricey side typically would not take to the dealer there are other options that are less expensive, other than that as long as its under warranty (and that is the case with any high-end vehicle) you are golden.



These look great and are very comfortable with a nice solid ride, HOWEVER the "high maintenance" factor FAR outweighs all that .... especially at the price point even the slightly used ones START at! i had a beautiful looking White discovery with the all black trim level and it rode nice, HOWEVER it was in the dealer service dept 4 of the 5 months i owned it multiple times.... MOSTLY for a "low battery - start engine" warning that they could not seem to fix (ever) .... it got so bad one time the vehicle totally locked me out of it and i had to pop open the fob to get the "emergency" key to get in and open hoof to then jump start (which took about 15 tries over about 20 min of being hooked up to my Fiat500 "spare" car ....) RIDICULOUS & so annoying - i finally traded this lemon in for a VW Taos.
