2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs. 2017 Jaguar F-Pace

Discovery Sport

F-Pace

          

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport and Jaguar F-Pace are both upscale crossovers that should meet the needs of most drivers, but if you're looking for the better vehicle, you need to look a little deeper. While these vehicles are related-Jaguar and Land Rover are owned by the same parent company-there are some key details that are different, and it's those details that should help you make up your mind.

Price

The 2017 Discovery Sport is priced from $37,695 MSRP. That's considerably less than the base Jaguar F-Pace, which starts at $40,990 MSRP. To make things even more complicated, if you don't want to drive a diesel model of the Jaguar F-Pace, it will cast you $42,390 MSRP to get behind the wheel, for a total difference of almost $5,000.

Powertrain and Performance

If you want more efficiency, more all-condition capability, and ample power, then you'll probably want to go with the Land Rover:

  • The Discovery Sport uses a 2.0L four good for 240 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. It gets a nine-speed automatic transmission, which helps it achieve 20 mpg city/28 mpg highway/22 mpg combined based on EPA estimates.

  • The F-Pace gets a 3.0L supercharged V6 that makes 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. This model gets an eight-speed automatic transmission and only earns up to 18 mpg city/23 mpg highway/20 mpg combined in EPA estimates.

It's clear that the Discovery Sport offers superior power and performance.

Convenience and Comfort

The Land Rover also has an important advantage when it comes to utility and cargo space. The Discovery Sport will carry up to 66.9 cubic feet of luggage with the rear seats folded down, but Land Rover says that the F-Pace only has 33.5 cubic feet of cargo capacity. The Land Rover also offers more front and rear leg room and head room, so it should be more spacious for all passengers.
