Smooth, Thrilling Performance

The Land Rover Discovery Sport and BMW X3 each come with a 2.0L turbo engine that has strong output and powerful performance. For a more dynamic driving experience, the 2019 Discovery Sport pairs its turbo engine with a 9-speed automatic transmission to optimize its power.

This transmission also helps get optimum fuel economy, superior control in all situations, and a quiet ride while cruising at higher speeds. The 2019 X3 features an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Discovery Sport also comes with a standard 4WD system for confident control along any road surface.

Versatile Interior Space

Both being more compact SUVs, they are easy to maneuver around tight corners and narrow roads. Inside, they provide space to seat five people. The Land Rover Discovery Sport offers more versatility with the seating though with the optional 5+2 seating that can add a few extra passengers if needed.

There is also more cargo room behind the back seats in the 2019 Discovery Sport. Its 34.6 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second-row seats allows you to haul more gear than the BMW X3, which has 28.7 cubic feet of cargo volume in the back.

You can fold down the back seats and utilize more space for cargo in both vehicles. Though the Discovery Sport will also have a slightly greater maximum volume for cargo capacity in comparison to the 2019 BMW X3.

Driver-Assistive Features

The 2019 Discovery Sport is equipped with both Lane Keep Assist and Driver Condition Monitor and Adaptative Cruise Control and Queue Assist. The Lane Keep Assist system will apply corrective steering to guide you back towards your lane when it senses you are drifting and will even alert that you should take a break if it detects you are tired.

The Adaptative Cruise Control system can help keep you a safe distance from the car in front of you while still using the convenience of the cruise control function. The BMW X3 has similar features but require you to add a special package to your purchase to have them.

Luxurious and Comfortable Ride

Get behind the wheel of the BMW X3 or Land Rover Discovery Sport and you will notice a superior level of comfort form the luxury design to modern technology each vehicle has available. You will have options for heated and cooled seats, various entertainment systems, and even a Heads-Up Display in both SUVs.
