For decades, Land Rover has been a staple in the auto world. While the brand was initially marketed for its off-roading capabilities, it quickly grew into the luxury brand we know today.
The 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport is a testament to the brand’s ability to combine its capable past and luxurious present, giving drivers the best of both worlds. Of course, with several other top-notch luxury brands on the market, it can be difficult for shoppers to decide on a model. In order to aid in the research process, we put the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs. the 2016 Volvo XC60, one of the Land Rover SUV’s worthy competitors.
Under the hood, both models offer a 240-horsepower, 2.0-Liter Inline 4 base engine. While the power specs and efficiency ratings are similar, the Land Rover offers an all-wheel drive platform, while the Volvo sports front-wheel drive. So, in unfavorable weather and rough terrain, drivers may want to consider the all-wheel power of the newest Discovery Sport.

The 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport model offers drivers a refined interior, complete with options. Bluetooth is standard on the model, giving drivers connective access to their favorite media sources (no cords attached). Volvo offers the same feature, but there is an area where the model comes up short.
In the Land Rover Discover Sport, drivers can choose between leatherette or cloth seating- a luxury that isn’t offered in the cloth-seated Volvo. Land Rover also offers the option of heated or cooled seats to its consumers, once again equipping drivers with the tools they need to battle the elements.
