Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Land Rover Discovery Sport than the Honda Pilot. The Honda Pilot will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Cost
