Land Rover Discovery vs. Discovery Sport

Land Rover Discovery vs. Land Rover Discovery Sport: Which is Right for You?

Here at Land Rover Thousand Oaks, you can find a wide selection of brand-new luxury SUVs to choose from when you explore our inventory. The Land Rover Discovery and Land Rover Discovery Sport are both popular choices because of their excellent off-road capabilities and luxurious amenities, but which one is right for you? Both are sure to impress, but we can help you explore the differences between them so that you can determine which one works best for your lifestyle.

What's Different?

Though the Land Rover Discovery and Land Rover Discovery Sport have much in common, there are some key differences that might make one a better fit for your needs than the other. Here is an overview of some of the main differences between these two exceptional luxury SUVs.


One of the greatest differences between the Discovery and Discovery Sport is size. The Land Rover Discovery is a midsize luxury SUV, while the Land Rover Discovery Sport is a compact SUV.

If you're looking for a luxurious vehicle that can accommodate your family, the spacious cabin and three rows of seating available in the Discovery might be the better match for you. If you need comfort and luxury, but you don't have a great need for extra seating, the smaller Discovery Sport offers plenty of the room you need for your daily drive around the Westlake Village area.

The Discovery offers seating for up to seven and a max cargo capacity of 74.3 cubic feet. The Discovery Sport has seating for five with an option to increase the total to seven with an available third row. It also offers a max cargo capacity of 55.6 cubic feet.

Towing Power

Both luxury SUVs offer impressive towing power. If you're looking for a vehicle with more muscle, the Discovery can tow up to 8,200 pounds when properly equipped. That's enough for a small boat, making the Discovery a great choice for outings with your family. The Discovery Sport can tow up to 4,409 pounds, which is enough strength to help you bring a trailer or other toys along for the ride.

The Discovery and Discovery Sport are made for adventure, so it might come down to how much power you need for your activities around Moorpark and Malibu.

Trim Levels

The Discovery offers three trim levels, including the S, S R-Dynamic, and HSE R-Dynamic.

Land Rover Discovery S: Comes with an 11.4-inch touchscreen, leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a host of advanced driver-assist features.

Notable elements include upgraded LED headlights, upgraded upholstery, and more. You can also opt for packages that increase towing capability and off-road capability.
