Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander Hybrid 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 Hybrid.
