Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Land Rover Discovery Sport than in the Toyota 4Runner. The Toyota 4Runner 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.

Convenience

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). Whether you pick the Land Rover Discovery Sport or the Toyota 4Runner, it's going to cost you about the same.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota 4Runner.
