Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander than in the Land Rover Discovery Sport, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Land Rover Discovery Sport and the Toyota Highlander.

Convenience
The Toyota Highlander requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Land Rover Discovery Sport, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Land Rover Discovery Sport is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Highlander. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Land Rover Discovery Sport carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Highlander.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is a little narrower than the Toyota Highlander, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot.

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

Handling
The Land Rover Discovery Sport has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Highlander, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
