2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 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 that pairs 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 2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport?

A new Pivi Pro multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity is standard, and the system supports over-the-air software updates. A 360-degree camera system is also standard. 

What Features in the 2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • LED headlights
  • Heated, power-folding side mirrors
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Dual-zone air conditioning
  • Forward collision warning
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Front and rear parking sensors

Available features include:

  • Panoramic moonroof
  • Power liftgate
  • Heated windshield
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Wireless device charging
  • Head-up display
  • Blind spot warning
  • Adaptive cruise control

2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport Vs. 2021 Acura RDX: How Do They Compare?

The Discovery Sport’s available third row is something you can’t get in an RDX, even if it isn’t very spacious. Both luxury SUVs include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. The RDX has sporty handling and quick acceleration as well as excellent crash ratings. We’re not fans of the multimedia interface in the RDX, however. 

Should I Buy the 2021 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.
