2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Proudly Serving Houston

When it comes to SUVs, drivers have countless options to consider. Two common competitors that might be on your shortlist are the 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport, a luxury crossover, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee, a midsize SUV. Here's what you need to know about these two popular vehicles when making your decision.

Cargo Space

Although the Land Rover Discovery Sport is classed as a luxury compact while the Grand Cherokee is considered a midsize SUV, the Land Rover actually has more cargo space: 45 cubic feet compared to 36 cubic feet for the Jeep. With the seats folded down, you'll have more than 82 cubic feet of cargo space in the Land Rover and just over 68 in the Jeep.

Interior Quality and Features

As a luxury SUV, the Land Rover edges out the Grand Cherokee when it comes to the quality of its cabin furnishings. The base model includes leather upholstery and a 10-way power-adjustable driver seat, both optional add-ons for the Grand Cherokee. Both vehicles come with two-zone automatic climate control and push-button start. The Discovery Sport comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with a smartphone remote app, 10-speaker stereo system, Bluetooth connectivity, and three USB ports. The Grand Cherokee has a single USB, a 7-inch touchscreen, and a six-speaker audio system.

Safety Features

Both these SUVs come standard with parking sensors and a rearview camera, and can be upgraded with adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic high beams, and rear cross-traffic alert. In addition to these features, the Discovery Sport also offers a head-up display, driver drowsiness monitoring, traffic sign recognition, and a surround-view camera system.
