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 Outback makes a sensible crossover SUV alternative.

Pros
Like a crossover SUV, but better
No shortage of safety gear
Spacious, refined interior
Rides and handles well
Better off-road than many SUVs

Cons
6-cylinder engine guzzles fuel…
… but 4-cylinder can feel pokey
Starting to show its age here and there
Touring needs roof rack cross bars

The 2019 Subaru Outback ranked #3 in Wagons. Currently the Subaru Outback has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 42 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
Roomy seats and great visibility
Class-leading amount of cargo space
Impressive set of standard tech and safety features

Cons
Acceleration is slow with the base engine
Throttle for base engine is overly sensitive at times

The 2019 Subaru Outback is both wagon and SUV. It has the profile of a wagon, yet its traction-enhancing all-wheel-drive system and extra ground clearance make it more capable off-road than most other SUVs. Like other modern Subarus, it's also packed with the latest safety features.Subaru's EyeSight driver assist suite is now standard on all Outbacks.Base 2.5i trim gets additional USB ports.

PROS
Spacious and comfortable cabin
Roof and cargo-loading heights are lower than those of most SUVs
Excellent visibility in all directions
Off-road ability is above average

CONS
Acceleration is lackluster, especially with four-cylinder engine
Sensitive gas pedal at low speeds
Modest handling capabilities
