Few family cars are as desirable as the Discovery Sport, which shares a good deal of its underpinnings with the Range Rover Evoque, but in a more practical, seven-seat body. This makes it a better all-rounder, and yet it’s still surprisingly fun to drive given its larger size. Comfort impresses and the Discovery Sport can head further offroad than most of us will ever need. Its 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine is smooth and a 237bhp edition has been added to sit above the 148 and 177bhp versions, for extra performance if you want it.
