Prado, Everest or Discovery Sport - which is best?

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Oct 2016

The Everest has a longer list of safety features, a higher towing capacity, is more family-friendly, and drives nicer; the Prado is more refined, but feels dated, the Discovery Sport is a true off-roader with car-like road manners. The Discovery for mine. Another to try is the Toyota Fortuner.

Best replacement for a Liberty Wagon?

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Oct 2016

With 2000 kg towing capacity the Discovery Sport has the towing capacity you want, it's more than the CX-5, and it's not limited to 80 km/h like the Subaru is. That's a big plus. The only criticisms we've heard about are some niggling interior fit and finish issues, and one or two electrical gremlins. The Land Rover also has more ground clearance than the CX-5 and a traction control system better set up for actual off-road work.

Known issues for Discovery Sport?

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Sep 2015

There was a time when you wouldn’t touch a British brand with a barge pole, they were badly built, poorly engineered, under-developed, and, well … rubbish. But that was then and this is now, and we should put our prejudices to one side. Early Discoverys do tend to look untidy with things like you mention, but they do keep going pretty well over the long term. You would like to think that the issues that have been a problem in the past, like the trim etc., have been fixed. We get little feedback from Disco owners, suggesting they’re a happy bunch. Recent research for an upcoming used-car story paints a positive picture of the reliability of the Disco. The only downside we can see is the cost of servicing and repairs, the same can be said for any European brand.
