Cons

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.

Based on the BMW X7 SUV,Turbocharged V8 makes 612 horsepower.Retuned suspension.

PROS
Thundering acceleration
Impressive array of advanced driver aids
Exclusivity of the Alpina badge

CONS
Not enough differentiation from the BMW X7
Interior is cluttered with buttons
Ride quality can suffer on less than perfect roads

By:

The Alpina XB7 is as fast as it is luxurious and as practical as it is well equipped. The trouble is the same is true of the closely related BMW X7 M50i, which is significantly cheaper.

PROS
Hugely fast
Very spacious and practical
Outstanding infotainment system

CONS
Too similar to an X7 M50i
Much more expensive than the M50i
A lot of road noise

By: 
whatcar.com

PROS
Big, refined power;
understated design;
Decent ride comfort,
even on big wheels.

CONS
Awfully big and thirsty,
unsettling stability-control interventions,
priced for exclusivity.
