Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Traverse than in the Land Rover Discovery Sport. The Chevrolet Traverse will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Traverse, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Traverse and the Land Rover Discovery Sport are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has the same turning radius as the Land Rover Discovery Sport, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.
