The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport is a super-competent seven-seater in a hotly contested luxury medium-SUV segment. It’s technically an update to the model that came out in 2015, one which this author actually bought and owned for some time.

Pros
Seven seats,
super versatile and practical,
Range Rover-like interior,
great packaging,
much better looking than before

Cons
Initial lag from drivetrain on take off,
still needs some options ticked,
no USB C

Land Rover promises luxurious treatment and off-road capability, and the 2020 Discovery Sport brings these qualities to the masses. The downsized Discovery is the most affordable model to wear the Land Rover badge, but it still boasts myriad features as well as a refreshed design for 2020. The updated styling helps align the Sport with bigger and ritzier Rovers such as the Discovery and the Range Rover Velar.Every Discovery Sport is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes between 246 and 286 horsepower depending on the model. However, the more powerful engine utilizes a 48-volt hybrid system that aims to improve fuel economy and aid acceleration.

The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek's primary draw is its jack-of-all-trades nature. Like a lot of other similarly priced cars or crossover SUVs, it has a roomy interior for both people and cargo, a smooth ride quality, and a long list of available advanced safety features.Revised feature availability.The Starlink telematics system gains a few new features.

Pros
Spacious interior for a hatchback of its size
Offers optional safety features not typically found in the class
High ground clearance for enhanced off-road capability
Comfortable ride quality

CONS
Slow acceleration on the highway
Handling isn't as precise as that of some rival cars
Lower EPA mileage numbers compared to typical crossovers
