The next two areas which we will explore are the performance specifications and pricing for the Discovery Sport and the E-PACE. In terms of price, the Discovery Sport is priced $3,400 more than the Jaguar E-PACE. Each SUV is powered by an identical 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine producing 246 horsepower.

You can see that the E-PACE is slightly shorter than the Discovery Sport. This gives you a little more interior space in the Land Rover than in the Jaguar.

Turning our focus towards the interiors of both SUVs, we’ll examine the collection of benefits that you’ll receive when you choose either the Discovery Sport or the E-PACE. If you’re looking for the largest cargo capacity between the two, it’s the Discovery Sport which has the edge thanks to a total of 60 cubic feet compared to 49.5 cubic feet found inside the Jaguar E-PACE.

Both models come standard with seating for up to 5 passengers. There is one major difference here though. You can choose to take advantage of all of that extra cargo space in the back of the Discovery Sport and add a third row of seats. These seats are on the smaller side, as is pretty normal for third-row seats, but it does mean that they easily fold flat, so you don’t lose that cargo space when the seats are in use. The ability to fit 7 people into the Discovery Sport is one of the primary differences between the Discovery Sport and the Jaguar E-PACE. Discovery Sport and Jaguar E-PACE models come standard with power seats across the trim range. One feature unique to the Discovery Sport is rear-seat HVAC controls, great for allowing passengers to personalize their temperature preferences. While the E-PACE offers greater front legroom, it’s the Discovery Sport that has the advantage in terms of headroom across both the front and rear rows of seats.

Now that you’ve gained a better understanding of the important differences between these two SUVs, Land Rover Easton invites you to come experience all that the Discovery Sport has to offer. Our team is here to help you select the model which perfectly complements your driving habits and lifestyle.
