Discovery Sport vs Q7 Off-Road Capability
If off-roading is more than a desire, and instead a way of life, there’s no question that the Land Rover Discovery Sport is the SUV for you. Both the Discovery Sport and Q7 do come standard with all-wheel-drive technology, but only the Discovery Sport features All Terrain Progress Control.
This system can help you tackle challenging conditions, and is standard on certain engines. It operates like cruise control, but functions at lower speeds, between 1 MPH and 18 MPH, helping you focus on the road ahead while safely steering through various obstacles. It can also help you pull away safely on snow-covered surfaces and wet grass.

Performance and Fuel Efficiency
Both Audi Q7 engines come mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, giving it a sporty yet powerful feel. However, the 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport is a powerful vehicle in its own right, with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine coming standard. A 286-horsepower engine is standard in the HSE and HSE Luxury trims, linked to a 9-speed automatic transmission which shifts smoothly and delivers exceptionally quick acceleration.
The base model of the Discovery Sport receives an EPA-estimated 21 MPG city/25 MPG highway, while the Q7 checks in at an EPA-estimated 19 MPG city/25 MPG highway. When it comes to filling up, the Discovery Sport is the better option for drivers looking to avoid the pump.
Intuitive Interior Features
With the Discovery Sport, you’ll have access to 5+2 seating. The second row can be spacious, while the available third row allows you to fit a couple of extra passengers in, for a maximum seating capacity of seven people. The 2019 Audi Q7 also offers seating for seven.
When the third row isn’t needed, those behind the front seats in the Discovery Sport will have 39.3 inches of legroom, plenty of space to stretch out. The Audi Q7 maxes out at 38.8 inches, and when considering the third row, the Discovery Sport bests the Q7 in the legroom category there, too.
With the Discovery Sport, choose from two infotainment systems, the Touch or Touch Pro, which can be enhanced with the Driver Assist Plus Package. An 8-inch touchscreen comes standard in the Discovery Sport, though the 10-inch Touch Pro can add to the infotainment experience. The Q7 features Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, allowing you to link a smartphone to the center stack for access to text messages, maps, and music.
