Land Rover Discovery Sport vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee

Discovery Sport
Grand Cherokee

Drivers in Calumet City and Homewood have a number of options in the luxury SUV category. These vehicles offer refined features and trail ready performance, and the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport and the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee are two of the leading contenders. However, there are numerous differences between the two. Read on to find out which vehicle offers more standard features, standard all-wheel drive, and more passenger capacity.

Interior Features

SUVs are known for their rugged capability, but you'll also want your vehicle to offer comfort and convenience for you and your passengers. The following features are included with the base trim of the Discovery Sport, but not with the Grand Cherokee:

  • 8-Way Power Adjustable Driver Seat

  • 8-Way Power Adjustable Front Passenger Seat

  • Leather and Cloth Seating

  • Reclining Rear Seats

  • 10-Speaker Sound System

  • Leather and Alloy Steering Wheel

When you want the best combination of luxury and power, the Discovery Sport has you covered.

Standard All-Wheel Drive

Drivers in Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates know that the winters in the area can be rough. Ice and snow both make finding traction difficult, but all-wheel drive improves the situation. While the base trim of the Grand Cherokee only comes with rear-wheel drive, the base trim of the Discovery Sport includes it standard. To get all-wheel drive on the Grand Cherokee, you'll need to pay more. In addition, the Discovery Sport includes performance systems like all-terrain progress control, which gives you even more control in low-traction situations.

Upgraded Capacity

Both the Discovery Sport and the Jeep Grand Cherokee offer generous interior room for both passengers and cargo. However, only the Discovery Sport offers an optional third row of seating. That boosts its capacity from 5 to 7, while the Discovery Sport is stuck at 5. In addition, you can also add a custom lighting system at higher trim levels, allowing you to choose between one of five colors of interior lighting. For capability that's practical and luxurious, turn to the Discovery Sport.
