SUV Comparison: Land Rover Discovery Sport Vs Hyundai Santa Fe

In this review and comparison test of the new Land Rover Discovery Sport Vs Hyundai Santa Fe SUVs, a viewer named Michaella asks:



“I'm looking at the new Land Rover Discovery Sport: Is it worth the money, and is it safe (unlike the Range Rover Evoque). Should I lean towards a Hyundai Sante Fe for value?”



When you review the safety levels of these two SUVs, the new Land Rover Discovery Sport SUV failed to do as well as the Hyundai Santa Fe SUV - in both the offset frontal crash test and in the pole impact test. The Hyundai Santa Fe crashed five per cent better than the Land Rover Discovery Sport in the offset frontal test. In the pole test, the Hyundai Santa Fe scored the maximum points, while the Discovery Sport did not.



When it comes to value it's worth comparing the detail of the Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander to the Land Rover Discovery Sport Td4 - both SUVs are the same price. But by the time you option up the Land Rover to the point where it is roughly equivalent to the Santa Fe on specifications, that Land Rover Discovery Sport is going to cost you $67,000 - a $14,000 price increase.



On value, there is no comparison - the Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander is much better value than the Land Rover Discovery Sport SUV. It's the only rational conclusion you can draw.
