My first Land Rover. Our previous family SUV was the Volvo XC90. The other car I drive is the Tesla Model 3. Much quieter and smoother ride than the Volvo in my opinion. The handling is amazingly good for such an SUV. I was initially worried about electronics problems that are known to exist for some LR models, but my R-Dynamic SE has been problem-free. A recent off-road trip was a blast. It felt like a tank. Some drawbacks I found include some delay in showing the proximity sensor readings when I park my Disco in the garage and laggy accel response with the automatic stop mode, which can be disabled. I would highly recommend this car. In fact, this is my first time posting any review and I was compelled to share my positive experience. The new Discovery Sport simply rocks!

This is a beautiful car at a fair price for a Land Rover. It's a lot of car in a very small footprint! (the Evoque was way too small for us). The interior and finishes are great. The glass roof is awesome. The back seat is comfortable and spacious, and the seats recline which is great. The gas mileage is not "Like an8 cylinder" as one reviewer wrote. I know because I sold my GMC Denali 8 Cylinder before buying this one and my gas mileage is WAY better. It totally depends on how you drive. The greatest feature is the ECO mode which will automatically reduce all systems to lower gas and electricity usage. Very nice to just turn on and not think about it. It will lower your performance and the strength of your AC. It seems owners need to read their manuals because it explains this. I get about 27-29 mpg on the highway and may be 15-18 city driving. If you drive aggressively you mileage will drop dramatically. The car is surprisingly quick with the turbo. If you want full performance, AC, etc turn off the ECO mode - which I do when I want best acceleration, etc. There have been issues with the Auto start/stop gas saving feature and with some random electrical/computer stuff but all is under warranty. The transmission sometimes can be less smooth than others but it's negligible. I don't think I would buy a high mileage used Land Rover because of this. My biggest complaint is, it does not have the 'Activity Key' wristband for water-sports (locking your key fob in car and going swimming without fob). It is not an option to upgrade to - which is really stupid. (still looking for a solution to this, short-sighted for and 'adventure car') All things considered, all members of my family love this car.

I've never driven a Land Rover before, but after looking at a few other options such as the Jeep Grand Cherokee & Rav 4, the Land Rover seemed a better choice. The dealership was amazing. I was treated better than any dealership, and they didn't try to sell me a bunch of extra warranties I didn't want. I was sold on the car the minute I saw it. The bells and whistles are mind-blowing. Being able to check that it's locked with my phone from the comfort of my bed. The safety features are incredible. The 3rd row seats are such a bonus. You can fit a 7 foot surfboard down the middle, and still have room for a driver and 5 passengers. The panoramic room is so amazing, it's the first time my kids don't want to be on their devices because they'd rather look out of the roof. The visibility is perfect. The turning radius is awesome. I made a turn and was excited to go up on the curb, but that wasn't even necessary, because the turning radius was so good I didn't make it to the curb. The technology as far as connectivity and other features is incredible. The fact that it personalizes the car to my wife or myself based on the key fob we use is amazing. It even lights up the sidewalk when you get out so you know where you're stepping. The Discovery Sport is beyond perfect in every way. I watched a video of a man driving one in Iceland through an ice river, and it did it with no problem. I took it to the top of the steepest hill in the city, and there is no other car that could turn that hill into a tiny obstacle the way the Land Rover did. The only possible drawback is the fuel economy, but it's well worth it. So stoked on this vehicle!!!

Bad Turbo Lag

Own a Discovery Sport. I hate the turbo lag. It's very dangerous as when pulling into traffic or needed acceleration for lane changing. I've almost been killed many times. You push the peddle and and for a few seconds nothing happens and then a big jerk. My wife thinks I'm a bad driver but when the turbo engages it jerks.

The HSE doesn’t have all the bells and whistles - I would have loved Apple CarPlay, for example - but the heated and cooled seats, heated steering wheel, and panoramic sunroof are all nice features. The infotainment system isn’t the most intuitive and the engine fan is REALLY LOUD, but it looks great, is fun to drive, and has a good amount of space for a 5-passenger SUV. Overall, very pleased with this vehicle. UPDATE: turbo lag is often frustrating - whether in regular or Eco mode.
