If you are looking for a premium luxury SUV that delivers refinement and ruggedness in equal measures, then there are two names that pop into your head— Land Rover and Range Rover. The 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport SE is more than capable of handling anything you can throw at it in the Benton area, but many people want to know how it would stack up against the 2018 Ranger Rover Sport SE. While each of these vehicles offer a wide assortment of amenities and equally impressive capability, they have some differences as well.

2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport Hits Streets of Benton

The powertrains are quite different between the Discovery Sport and the Range Rover Sport. The Range Rover is supercharged and offers two more cylinders, which give it more horsepower and torque by quite a bit. However, the performance characteristics are more similar than you’d think between these two impressive SUVs. That’s because the Range Rover Sport is almost twice as heavy, which is why their acceleration speed is nearly identical. They are both capable of towing plenty of weight for Benton area drivers, but the Range Rover Sport has a towing capacity of over 7,700 lbs. The Land Rover Discovery Sport offers up a sizeable 4,400-lb towing capacity, which is something worth noting considering it’s nearly 2,000 lbs. lighter than its competitor.

While it may seem like the Range Rover Sport is the superior vehicle, that’s not necessarily the case, especially when you consider the difference in price. The Discovery Sport delivers quite a few amenities and an engaging drive at almost half the price. It provides leather seating surfaces, plenty of space for your passengers, and more cargo volume than you get on the Range Rover Sport. It also includes the Terrain Response® System, a rear parking aid and a rear view camera as well. It all comes down to what you need. The 2018 Range Rover Sport spares no expense in delivering a big, powerful luxury SUV with all the bells and whistles. If you’re looking for something more nimble and economical, but still with plenty of impressive amenities, then the 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport is just what you need.
