2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport review: Posh, midi seven-seater
The Discovery Sport replaced the old Freelander, but it’s a more rounded performer, much higher in tech, can seat as many as seven people and is a fine thing to drive and reasonable value provided you spec it right. Plus it retains just enough proper Land Rover off-road-y-ness to make it worthy of the legendary badge.

Did you know? Recycling some of the old Freelander’s chassis means that the Discovery Sport is actually distantly related to the Ford Mondeo.
The Discovery Sport, neither on paper nor at first glance, looks like it stands much of a chance against the likes of the Audi Q5 or its own in-house rival, the Range Rover Evoque. But give it a chance – with its combination of assured handling, practical cabin, comfort, and subtly handsome looks, this is a car that very quickly works its way into your affections. Just watch the price once you start adding options.
