2021 Discovery Sport vs Q5: Off-Road Readiness

Interested in the freedom to adventure off the beaten path? The new Discovery Sport is better equipped to handle it. With the Terrain Response® 2 system on board, your 2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport monitors road conditions for you and automatically switches between four unique drive modes to maximize performance no matter where you roam.

Although the Q5 does offer an all-wheel drive (AWD) system, it does not offer a comparable system to the Terrain Response® 2, like in the Discovery Sport.

2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs Audi Q5: Technology and Convenience

From enlarged touchscreens to premium sound systems and smartphone integration, both luxury SUVs offer plenty of high-end appointments, plush amenities, and convenient technologies to give you a reliably comfortable and enjoyable ride. There are a couple of features you will only find in the Land Rover, however.

The optional Activity Key waterproof wristband enables you to keep your keys secure in your crossover while you take part in your favorite outdoor activities. Then, when it's time to return to your cabin, simply use the Activity Key to unlock your Discovery Sport.

Another such feature is the ClearSight interior rearview mirror. With this on board, you can fill the cargo area as much as you need with recreational equipment, luggage, or whatever else you may be transporting. This special rearview mirror projects images of what's directly behind your new Discovery Sport, so you can continue to navigate and maneuver the roads with ease.

Land Rover Discovery Sport vs Audi Q5: Interior and Dimensions

The Land Rover Discovery Sport and Audi Q5 are each, in their base trims, 2-row luxury SUVs capable of seating up to five people.

However, the Discovery Sport provides more flexibility with trim options that can accommodate 5 + 2 Seating. This adds two seats behind the second row for a total capacity of seven people. If you need the extra space, the Sport delivers.

You'll also find plenty of cargo space in these two vehicles, but the Land Rover ultimately edges out the Audi in this area. With 34.6 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second row, the Sport can fit significantly more items than the Q5, which has just 25.1 cubic feet of cargo volume available with the rear seats up.

2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs Audi Q5: The Verdict

After reading our 2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport vs. Audi Q5 comparison, which luxury SUV has more of what you're looking for? Though each has its own advantages, if you need extra space for both passengers and belongings, plus more advanced off-roading capabilities, you may prefer what the Discovery Sport has to offer.
