2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs. 2020 BMW X5

Overview: Discovery Sport or BMW X5?

The Discovery Sport and the BMW X5 include many of the same features right from the start. What’s more, the Land Rover gives you many more ways to upgrade and customize. Although the X5 offers some impressive performance specs, the Land Rover remains the preferred choice for adventurous drivers.

Discovery Sport or BMW X5: Features and Value

Given the difference in pricing, you might be surprised to learn just how much these models have in common! Comparing the base trims of the Land Rover Discovery Sport vs. BMW X5, you’ll notice that both include the following:

  • Lane departure warning
  • Rear parking aid
  • Proximity keyless entry
  • Bluetooth® and voice recognition
  • Touchscreen infotainment
  • Speed-sensitive volume control
  • USB ports
  • Power-folding heated side mirrors
  • LED brake lights
  • Daytime running lights

Of course, there’s more to choosing a vehicle than comparing the base trims. Here’s what you can expect if you’re trying to upgrade the Discovery Sport or the BMW X5:

  • Discovery Sport Trim Levels — The Land Rover Discovery Sport is available in six trims for 2020. A fully-loaded Discovery Sport comes in at just $52,800 MSRP, so you can get everything you desire for less! Just looking for specific features? More trim options can help you save big.
  • BMW X5 Trim Levels — The X5 offers four trim levels, ranging from a base price of $58,900 MSRP to a range-topping limit of $82,150. With fewer options and a much higher base cost, you’re less likely to get the precise features that you desire.

Discovery Sport or BMW X5: Go Off-Road with Confidence

If you’re looking for an SUV that can take you anywhere, you might be intrigued by the powerful base engine of the BMW X5. However, any experienced adventurer knows that power isn’t everything. Here’s why more and more drivers are choosing to upgrade with the Land Rover:

  • The BMW X5 is standard with rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is optional across the lineup. If you choose the Discovery Sport, you’ll automatically receive Land Rover 4WD, a system that’s more off-road-ready than BMW AWD. 
  • Both models include the Dynamic Stability Control for a smoother on-road experience, and Hill Descent Control for those winding Appalachian roads out past Severna Park and Upper Marlboro. However, only the Land Rover offers Terrain Response®, an exclusive feature which adapts to almost any terrain.
