Comparison Review

Comfort
The Land Rover Discovery Sport offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Volkswagen ID.4. The Volkswagen ID.4 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
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Land Rover Discovery Sport, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volkswagen ID.4.

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 Volkswagen ID.4, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Volkswagen ID.4.

Dimensions
Since the Land Rover Discovery Sport is much wider than the Volkswagen ID.4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Land Rover Discovery Sport takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen ID.4.

Handling
The Land Rover Discovery Sport has a significantly larger turning radius than the Volkswagen ID.4, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Land Rover Discovery Sport is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen ID.4 for pulling heavy loads. The Land Rover Discovery Sport has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Land Rover Discovery Sport transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Utility
The Land Rover Discovery Sport offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen ID.4, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Land Rover Discovery Sport has less cargo space than the Volkswagen ID.4, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Land Rover Discovery Sport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen ID.4.
