Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee L than in the Land Rover Discovery Sport. The Jeep Grand Cherokee L 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, 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). The Jeep Grand Cherokee L is somewhat more expensive than the Land Rover Discovery Sport. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Grand Cherokee L is much higher than that for the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
