The Land Rover brand is especially appreciated by a separate group of motorists. Cars of this brand have a certain charm and stand out from all classmates. Among the brand's model range, one of the most stylish and spectacular crossovers stands out - Land Rover Discovery Sport 2022. It is sold in Russia, as well as in some other countries. In the domestic market, the first generation SUV in a restyled version is available in several trim levels at a price of 2,930,000 to 4,144,000 rubles for the Standard and R-Dynamic HSE versions, respectively. The model can be called a direct rival to the BMW X3, Volvo XC60, Mercedes-Benz GLC and Range Rover Evoque.
What Land Rover models are really valued for is their impressive performance, and the Land Rover Discovery Sport 2022 is no exception. In terms of configurations and prices, this is not the best option for buying among classmates, however, in terms of its parameters, an SUV surpasses most of its competitors. It should also be noted that the model presented in the new body has a spectacular appearance, which can be estimated from the photo in the article.
Currently, compatriots can buy such a SUV in dealerships in two main modifications:
- with a 2.0-liter petrol turbocharged engine generating up to 200 hp and 320 N * m of torque;

The English SUV is distinguished by good dynamics and moderate fuel consumption. The cross accelerates to the first "hundred" from a standstill in 7, 8 - 9, 2 s. The maximum speed is limited to 206 - 224 km / h. On average, for every 100 km of run, this car will consume 8.1 liters of fuel in the combined cycle (AI-95 gasoline). It is worth noting that all indicators are achieved only under optimal conditions and in everyday life not every driver will be able to repeat them, since much depends on the driving style.
The seven-seater SUV matches the dimensions of a standard mid-size crossover. The model reaches 4,597 mm in length, 2,069 mm in width, and 1,727 mm in height. The wheelbase of the car is 2,741 mm.

Land Rover models are highly valued for their thoughtful and multifaceted safety features. The crossover presented in this review is by no means an exception. As usual, the European model passed the EuroNCAP security test, where cars are evaluated in four main areas. The final rating of the "Englishman" corresponds to the rating of "Five stars" According to the level of safety for the driver and adult passengers, this is almost the best option for a purchase in its class with an indicator of 93%. Protection of child passengers - 83%. Vulnerability of pedestrians and other road users - 69%. Equipping a car with all kinds of safety systems - 82%.
Handling and off-road performance
Driving such a car, you immediately get the feeling that you are driving a premium car. The "Englishman" really impresses with its smoothness and comfort. The cross holds the road well and obediently responds immediately to the steering. The SUV feels confident not only in the city, but also far beyond its borders. This cross is distinguished by excellent cross-country ability and readiness to fight even the most serious obstacles in its path. There is no point in talking about dirt roads and rough terrain, since their model simply does not notice, maintaining the proper level of comfort in the cabin.
Advantages and disadvantages
This car has a lot of advantages. The main advantage is the relatively small size, as well as a seven-seater cabin. This is a roomy comfortable car, where the driver and all passengers can be accommodated with proper comfort. It is also worth noting the reliability of the Land Rover Discovery Sport 2022. With moderate operation with regular maintenance, the car will not give its owner a headache for hundreds of thousands of kilometers. In turn, if you constantly operate the car at its maximum capabilities, it will demonstrate itself from the negative side. Under excessive loads, engines fail ahead of time and require appropriate repair.
What really impresses the British crossover is its sleek and sophisticated looks. The SUV looks stylish and ultra-modern, but at the same time it differs with some retro notes, referring to the established base of the Land Rover brand. Most of all, the attention is drawn to the front side of the car, which has a non-standard silhouette in comparison with other cars of this class. In the cabin, we can safely say that we are talking about a modern suite. The quality of the finishing is at a high level. The car can please its owner with the practicality and convenience of the instrument layout. Also worth highlighting is the ergonomics, which are made in their own style, peculiar only to Land Rover models.
In the first generation in a restyled version, the car was officially presented in May 2019. Free sales of the crossover in this version started on the Russian market a month after the premiere. As for the initial appearance of Land Rover Discovery Sport in Russia, this happened much earlier, namely in October 2014.
As mentioned earlier, this model is a competitor for:
- Volvo XC60;
- BMW X3;
- Mercedes-Benz GLC;
- Range Rover Evoque.
