Known issues for Discovery Sport?
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.
Discovery Sport doesn't quite cut it
Buttons on the steering wheel mirror the controls on the touchscreen, so that should not be a giant drama. As for the safety gear, Land Rover spokesman Tim Krieger says: "There have been some restrictions on these features because of global demand but both are available to order."
Land Cruiser or Discovery Sport for driving in the outback?
The new Discovery Sport is an excellent car, both stylish and suitable for family use. I would drive a current Range Rover across Australia, although I know Toyota has the best reputation and support network in the Outback.
Good pick for new SUV?
There are lots of fresh contenders in that class, including the Porsche Macan — which has an 18-month waiting list. The pick is the Land Rover Discovery Sport. I give it The Tick and rate it well ahead of the NX for comfort, quietness and class.
