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.

Cons
Third-row space is tight for anyone other than small kids

Is 2021 your year to make the step to a hybrid? The Lexus RX450h Luxury makes it a comfortable and easy journey, albeit a rather unexciting one.

Pros
The best looking Lexus (aside from LC500) - modern and stylish inside and out
Effortless hybrid drivetrain
Plenty of kit
Quiet and comfortable in every environment

Cons
Thirsty V6 offset by hybrid, but not as much as you'd like
CVT dulls the driving experience
Getting pretty spendy for a car that starts in the $70k range
1990s rear-view camera needs to go
