2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport Review

from the expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 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 246-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or a new-for-2020 mild-hybrid four-cylinder drivetrain that makes 286 hp. Both drivetrains pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel drive is standard. Competitors include the Acura RDX, BMW X3 and Audi Q5.

What’s New on the 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport?

The standard turbocharged gas 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine gets a slight power increase to 246 hp, while a new R-Dynamic HSE trim gets a mild-hybrid version of the same engine that’s good for 286 hp.

Styling changes include new front and rear bumpers, an updated grille and full-LED lighting. All trims also get an updated interior with available Luxtex sustainable fabric. Wireless phone charging and a 4G Wi-Fi hot spot are available. A new front camera system uses the center display to provide a better view ahead while off-roading, and a new rear camera paired with the rearview mirror gives drivers a clear view of the rear when visibility is hampered by passengers or cargo.

What Features in the 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport Are Most Important?

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

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport Vs. 2020 Acura RDX: How Do They Compare?

The Discovery Sport upped the luxury ante for 2020 with updated styling and new features. It is also available with a third row, even if it isn’t very spacious. That’s something you can’t get in an RDX. While Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity are both offered in the Discovery Sport, only CarPlay is offered in the RDX. The RDX has sporty handling and quick acceleration as well as excellent crash ratings. We’re not big fans of the multimedia interfaces in either SUV, but the Discovery Sport at least offers a touchscreen.

Should I Buy the 2020 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.

Wish I’d waited to see what was NOT on the car

by RWilk from Woodland Hills,Cs on October 4, 2020

So many amenities that the car lacks from what we were told would be on it. So disappointed I’m in the lease for 36 months Read full review


So lovely

by AshleyNJGirl from NJ on September 20, 2020

It’s too soon to call it the most reliable car I’ve ever owned but I love to drive it. It’s such a smooth ride and my kids are safe and comfortable. I find that the auto engine off feature can be a ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
