Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport ranks 13 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is the most capable off-road vehicle in its class. It also has plenty of cargo space, and it's the only luxury compact SUV to offer a third row of seats. However, the engine feels a little weak, and it gets worse fuel economy than many competitors.

Pros
Excellent off-road ability
Ample cargo room
Only SUV in the class available with a third row

Cons
Underpowered engine
Low fuel economy
Low predicted reliability rating

Although it's not a working implement like the classic Land Rover Discovery, the quirky Discovery Sport has plenty of merits up against rivals in the entry-level luxury class.
Anchoring the Land Rover lineup should be a cakewalk of a job, especially given that there is routinely a waiting list to order the brand's Range Rover models. But it hasn't always been that easy, which is why Land Rover started from scratch with its Discovery Sport.

Pros
Comfortable, quiet ride
Roomy interior for five
Decently off-road capable
Land Rover style inside and out

Cons
Too softly styled for a Land Rover?
Third-row seat is a tease
Active safety features are optional
Gets expensive fast

There are some new, noteworthy options for the 2017 Discovery Sport. A new interface known as InControl Touch Pro boasts a larger screen, better graphics and faster responses. The new Intelligent Dynamics pack includes an adaptive suspension and an active all-wheel-drive system that can power only two wheels for improved fuel economy. The new Dynamic Design package includes a variety of special interior and exterior design elements. A new low-speed, off-road cruise control system is also now standard.

Pros
More passenger and cargo space than most competitors offer
Above-average capabilities off-road and in bad weather conditions
Available third-row seating is unique to the segment.

Cons
Mediocre acceleration and fuel economy for the segment
Only one engine choice
Transmission is slow to downshift
Cabin is well-made but less luxurious in appearance than rival

The redesigned 2017 Jeep Compass is much improved over its predecessor. It's a good choice if you want a comfortable and affordable crossover SUV that can still handle a dirt road.Jeep produced its previous-generation model for the first part of the model year and then switched over to the fully redesigned Compass. The first one suffers from poor performance, a low-quality interior and a rough ride, among other faults. We don't recommend buying the "old" Compass.
The new Jeep Compass, however, is a much more competitive small crossover. Jeep made the new Compass more comfortable and enjoyable to drive on the street, where it knows that owners will spend most of their time.

Pros
Solid interior space for such a small vehicle
Highly capable off-road for a small crossover
Rugged Jeep styling is unique in the segment

Cons
Weak power delivery; you're always dipping into the throttle
Hard to find a truly comfortable seat position
Previous model's poor performance, ride comfort and refinement

Forget what you knew about the old Jeep Compass; this latest model is thoroughly modern, even if it doesn't exactly move the bar far forward in its segment.In its first generation, it went down in history as one of the most unloved crossovers on the road from day one. But that's the past and, aside from its badge, the Jeep Compass is all-new for 2017.

Likes
Old Compass? Put out to pasture
No more CVT
Trailhawk toughness
Mini Grand Cherokee looks inside and out
Comfortable ride quality and good handling

Dislikes
Priced like a larger crossover
Narrow inside
High cargo area liftover
Mediocre visibility
Could use more power

By:

The Renegade is more Wrangler-focused, with lots of right angles and round headlights, whereas the Compass is clearly taking styling cues from the Grand Cherokee, so it’s more sleek and progressive.Indeed, you could argue the new Compass’s design looks more traditionally “Cherokee” than the current small Cherokee does. Dimensionally, the Compass has been engineered to fill a relatively narrow space in between the Renegade and Cherokee.The new Compass is a global vehicle.

Pros
Crisply styled, off-road capable, nimble handling

Cons
Lethargic transmission response, touchy brakes
