But which of these models is the best fit for a busy lifestyle? That depends on what drivers are looking for.
The 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport is the larger model, and it also offers more interior versatility. This model seats five passengers normally, but is available with an additional two third-row seats. This model also offers slightly more interior space.
