Close but no cigar.
Joe, 8/13/2018
We loved the style , size, and overall appearance. We were going to lease the SE version(lowest end version). We ended up getting another vehicle because most of the safety features and driver assist technology was absent on the SE model without spending very much more money to have them on this model. Even the interior was sub par unless we jumped up to the HSE model. We eventually decided against this vehicle because we would have paid as if we were driving a Land Rover while essentially getting a shell of a Land Rover. One would expect a vehicle priced around 40K would be equipped with at least as many safety and driver assist features as a vehicle costing 10-15K less. However, my wife's Mazda CX5 Touring has far more safety/driver assist features and drives just as nicely. The Discovery Sport could be everything we wanted IF we were willing to pay in the mid 40K area. It is nice but very overpriced for what you get.

More about the 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport

The 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport stands out in the compact luxury crossover segment for its impressive interior space and off-road competence.

Land Rover is known for making SUVs that can traverse the most brutal terrain while their cabins maintain the serenity of an English tea house. By Land Rover standards, the Discovery Sport falls a little short: It has less ground clearance and less capable mechanical bits than its bigger siblings. Yet it will still crawl its way over off-road obstacles that would eviscerate its rivals. Why does that matter, assuming your commute doesn't require crossing the Amazon? If you have to deal with deep snow or a muddy, deeply rutted path to a lakeside cabin, the Land Rover Discovery Sport's above-and-beyond capabilities could well come in handy.

However, its charms go beyond its jungle-bashing abilities. Its cargo bay is one of the most spacious in the segment, and the rear seat slides fore and aft to maximize legroom or squeeze in a bit more luggage. It also offers an optional third-row seat, so it can serve as a seven-seater in a pinch, provided those extra two passengers are kid-size. And that, to us, makes this Land Rover one of the most practical SUVs in its segment and a must-drive for shoppers in this category.

The Discovery Sport has been updated again for 2018, receiving a new engine and redesigned front seats. The base engine is now a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 237 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque. A more powerful version of this engine is available for the Land Rover's higher trims, making 286 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Both return an estimated 22 mpg combined (21 city/25 highway for the base engine; 20 city/25 highway for the optional engine). The standard All-Terrain Progress Control system is akin to off-road cruise control. Turn it on, and the Land Rover will automatically apply power and brakes to climb the most treacherous terrain. All the driver does is steer. It's a good safety feature, allowing drivers without off-road experience to safely cross treacherous terrain.

The Discovery Sport is available in SE, HSE and HSE Lux models. The SE comes with most of the amenities you'd expect in a luxury-branded vehicle, while the HSE adds the rest and the HSE Lux offers the very best in British opulence.
