Land Rover Discovery Sport buying guide

What Discovery Sport trim levels are there?

The Discovery Sport range starts with the entry-level S trim. This gets 18-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors and heated front seats, as well as cruise control, a reverse parking camera and leather trim on parts of the dashboard.

Next up is the SE model, which adds an electric-opening boot, LED headlights, a digital dashboard and a blind-spot warning system to help you change lanes safely on the motorway.

Next up is a range of range-topping R-Dynamic models. These start with the R-Dynamic SE, which gets bigger wheels, a 12-way adjustable driver’s seat, meaner-looking front bumpers and some blacked-out exterior badges. Importantly, it also gets Land Rover’s brilliant Meridian sound system to add some real wallop to your tunes.

Add an H and you get the next trim: R-Dynamic HSE. This adds 14-way adjustable front seats as well as posher ‘Windsor’ leather for the seats.

The 2014-2019 Discovery Sport range was topped by HSE models. These got 20-inch wheels, blacked-out rear windows, fully adjustable heated electric seats and a reverse parking camera.

There have been various special editions over the years, notably the Landmark Edition. This trim was only available on the 2014-2019 version of the Discovery Sport and came in white, black or grey, with a grey roof as an option, and some grey details on the front grille. It also came with a panoramic sunroof as standard, and some unique 19-inch alloy wheels.

Discovery Sport interior and technology

Land Rover positions itself as a premium brand, and for the most part, the Discovery Sport’s cabin lives up to these claims. It’s worth noting that the 2019-onwards model feels markedly posher inside than the 2014-2019 version.

As well as sitting you nice and high, most of the materials you touch feel posh, and there are some lovely non-leather interior trim options. A pleasingly thin steering wheel makes you feel as if you’re piloting your way around your Royal estate, while the standard-fit 10-inch infotainment system (in 2019-onward models) looks posh nestled in the dashboard.

Interior space is largely good, again with the caveat that your third-row passengers will feel pretty cramped unless they’re children. The Discovery Sport’s boot can swallow 840 litres of stuff. It’s certainly big, but it’s worth noting Land Rover measures load capacity up to the roof, unlike other manufacturers who tend to stop measuring at the parcel shelf. With the third row of seats in use, you’ll only fit 115 litres in the back.

Land Rover Discovery Sport engine range explained

Discovery Sport 2.0 SI4 240 petrol

Read through the word-soup that is this engine’s name and you might glean that it’s a 2.0-litre engine with 240hp. It’s a petrol unit, and you’ll find it in the pre-2019 Discovery Sport. It’ll get the car from 0-62mph in 7.4 seconds but fuel economy is not great, at a claimed 32mpg.

Discovery Sport 2.0 P200 petrol

Any engine with just a P or D in front of it signifies it’s from the 2019-onward Discovery Sport, when Land Rover simplified their engine names… a bit. P means petrol, and the number immediately after it is the horsepower, meaning this is a 200hp 2.0-litre petrol. It’ll get the Discovery Sport from 0-62mph in 9.2 seconds, but fuel economy will be in the mid 30s at best.

Discovery Sport 2.0 P250 petrol

Next up is the P250 - a 2.0-litre, 250hp petrol engine. It’s brisker than the P200 – 0-62mph takes 7.8 seconds – but fuel economy will probably rest just under 30mpg in real-world driving.

Discovery Sport P300e PHEV

Can you get a plug-in hybrid Discovery Sport? You sure can – it’s called the P300e. It’s the most powerful Discovery Sport with just over 300hp, but it has the smallest engine – a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine. That puts out 200hp, and it combines with a 100hp electric motor. It’s quick, with a 0-62mph time of 6.8 seconds, and it can drive about 30 miles on electric power alone… but it’s also the most expensive form of the Discovery Sport.

Discovery Sport D165 diesel

On to the diesels. The D165 is the most affordable way into Discovery Sport ownership. It’s a 2.0-litre diesel with 165hp. Unlike most of the other engines it’s available with a manual gearbox and front-wheel drive, saving you on running costs with a reasonable fuel economy of 44mpg. The front-wheel-drive manual version will get from 0-62mph in 9.8 seconds, while 4x4 and auto versions are a tiny bit quicker.

Discovery Sport 2.0 D180 / TD4 180 diesel

The D180 was available on the very first 2019-onwards cars before being phased out, replaced by a D200 and the D165. It has 180, gets from 0-62mph in 10.1 seconds and should get you about 42mpg. It was also available on the 2014-2019 model, when it was known as the TD4 180.

Discovery Sport 2.0 D200 diesel

Next up is the D200 – a 200hp 2.0-litre diesel. It’ll get the Discovery Sport to 62mph from rest in 8.1 seconds, so it’s pretty brisk, while getting a claimed 41mpg.

Discovery Sport 2.0 D240 diesel

No longer available from new, the D240 is a 2.0-litre diesel engine with… you guessed it, 240hp! It was the brawniest diesel engine in the Discovery Sport line-up for a few years, getting it from 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds, which getting (officially claimed) fuel economy of 44mpg, on the older and more relaxed testing cycle. Expect to get mid 30s in the real world.

Your Land Rover Discovery Sport questions answered

On the face of it, the Discovery Sport is a straightforward car – it only comes in one shape… albeit one powered by a wide range of engines and with a lot of trim levels.

It first hit showroom floors in 2014 to replace the Land Rover Freelander. Underneath, the Discovery Sport is mechanically similar to its Evoque sister car, but the Disco Sport firmly prioritises practicality over style. A heavily updated version of the Discovery Sport rolled into our lives in 2019 and brought with it a more modern interior, and these will make up most of the models you find at Motorpoint.

No, not all… but most. Discovery Sport models have five seats as standard, but most buyers ticked the £1,000 ‘5+2’ seating option from new, meaning most cars you’ll find in stock at Motorpoint do indeed have 7 seats. It’s worth noting that the Discovery Sport’s third row of seats are quite small, so won’t suit adults for long journeys.

While it might look huge in photos, the Discovery Sport is actually classed as a compact SUV. It’s a smidge under 4.6m long, so about 30cm shorter than the ‘full-fat’ Discovery, which is a much more expensive car. You won’t find the Discovery Sport a nightmare to park – it’s easy to see out of, and higher-spec models come with 360-degree cameras that really help with neat and tidy parking. 

The Discovery Sport engine range includes a range of diesel and petrol engines, plus a plug-in hybrid version. Most versions are four-wheel-drive, but keep an eye out for ‘FWD’ in the car name – these are front-wheel-drive only, and you tend to only find these on the less powerful versions of the car.

Land Rover as a brand has improved its position in more recent reliability surveys, but the Discovery Sport doesn't tend to score very well as a model. Nevertheless, it's been on sale for several years now, so more recent models will have had most of the biggest issues ironed out.

Adding an extended warranty is a great way to protect yourself from unexpected repair costs should something fail.

The family SUV class is fiercely competitive and the Discovery Sport has a few tricks up its sleeve that could make it the best choice for you. Compared with its rivals – the BMW X3, Audi Q5 and Mercedes GLC – the Discovery Sport can go much further off road and has the option of seven seats. In fact, only the Mercedes GLB offers seven-seats in a similarly sized premium package, but without the Land Rover's off-road prowess.

Plus, since the 2019 facelift, Land Rover has dramatically improved how posh the interior feels, with plusher materials and a vastly improved infotainment system. The on-road composure remains excellent, too, making the Discovery Sport an easy car to cover long distances in.

Land Rover is a premium brand, so you should be prepared to spend more keeping it in good running order than you might on a car from a more affordable brand.

You can protect yourself from unexpected repair costs by adding an extended warranty when you purchase your Discovery Sport.

Most indicators suggest the Discovery Sport holds its value well. This is likely informed by its premium branding and positioning in an especially popular market segment.

Make sure to keep your Discovery Sport well maintained and hold on to all your receipts to keep its value as high as possible.

The Discovery Sport is a decent option if you're looking for a tow car.

Front-wheel-drive D150 and D165 versions can pull a braked trailer weighing up to 1,800kg, or 2,200kg if you equip four-wheel drive. The stronger D200 bumps this figure up to 2,500kg, or 2,200kg if you select the seven-seat cabin option.

P200, P250 and P290 petrols, along with earlier 2.0-litre petrol versions, are all rated at the same 2,000kg figure. The P300e plug-in hybrid is the fastest Discovery Sport you can buy, but has the lowest tow rating at 1,600kg – still quite a bit higher than most plug-in hybrid options in this class.
