Verdict: A very practical family car and whatever the weather outside Land Rover always looks after its passengers. This vehicle stays true to Land Rover with its tradition of a high-up command driving position and stadium seating, this is where the passengers are higher than the row in front therefore sets it above its rivals. The second row of seats slides backwards and forwards which makes the most of the available space and both the second and third row of seats fold flat if required.
There are luxury features too such as an optional 17 speaker Meridian sound system and other notable improvements such as the infotainment system, which offers a range of apps including a Wi-Fi system, internet radio and sat nav.
Called the Discovery Sport this is the first in line of a new family of Land Rovers.
