What's New in the 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport?

For 2018, the Discovery Sport gains two new 4-cylinder turbocharged engine options. Rated at 237 and 286 horsepower respectively, the two 2.0-liter gasoline engines improve the Discovery Sport's performance and fuel economy. New features for the Discovery Sport include standard 4-way power lumbar support, an available 12-way power driver's seat and the addition of adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring as standalone options. See the 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport models for sale near you

Which Discovery Sport is the Best?

For the money, the SE with a few option packages will give you all the luxury you need in an off-road-capable luxury SUV. The HSE's fixed moonroof isn't a must-have, but the available driver-assist upgrades may be worth spending the extra cash for the upper-end trims.

2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs the competition

2018 Audi Q5 -- The Q5 offers a more luxurious interior and more-powerful engine options, but it also costs a few thousand dollars more than a comparably equipped Discovery Sport and doesn't offer a third-row seat option.

2018 Lexus NX -- The NX has a more distinctive exterior, better handling and more advanced audio and infotainment systems. We like its interior better, too. However, the NX cannot venture to the off-road destinations attainable in the Discovery Sport.

2018 Lincoln MKC -- The MKC offers a sleek exterior and a more elegant interior than the Discovery Sport, plus its standard engine bests the Discovery Sport's hp and fuel economy (with optional all-wheel drive). Like the Lexus NX, the MKC doesn't offer a third-row seat, but its front-drive layout permits a lower base price.

Used BMW X5 -- A 2012-2016 BMW X5 offers more room, more power and better handling, as well as better resale figures. You can find more upscale options on the X5, as well as a number of performance upgrades.
