In theory, Discovery Sport pricing starts from around £31,500. But that figure only gets you a base D150 diesel version lacking three things that most Disco Sport customers want, namely seven seats, automatic transmission and AWD. If you want all those things on a base D150, you're looking at a starting price of around £36,500 - quite a lot different. Add a premium of nearly £4,000 to that if you want the mid-range D180 diesel; or around £6,000 more if you want the top D240 diesel we tried. All AWD Discovery Sport models feature Land Rover's MHEV mild hybrid 48-valve technology.
Various trim levels are offered across the line-up - base 'Discovery Sport', then 'S', 'SE' and 'HSE', plus there's an 'R-Dynamic' option if you want something that looks a bit sportier. Even an 'S'-spec variants includes 18-inch alloy wheels, power-folding mirrors, rear animated directional indicators and an 'Adaptive Speed Limiter' that can set itself to prevailing speed limits courtesy of 'Traffic Sign Recognition'. Inside in an 'S'-spec variant, you get seats trimmed in your choice of either perforated grained 'Ebony' leather or the 'Ebony Luxtec' upholstery we tried, which features a rich 'suedecloth' finish. Either way, there's 12-way power adjustability at the front, plus you get an auto-dimming rear view mirror. There's also a 10.25-inch 'Touch Pro' centre-dash screen complete with smartphone-mirroring and Land Rover's 'Connected Navigation Pro' system.
