When you rely on us as your Knoxville TN Land Rover Dealer Serving Farragut, you expect to find some attractive luxury SUVs. With models like the Land Rover Discovery, our Tennessee Land Rover dealership is a great place to get behind the wheel of the perfect luxury SUV. Not only do we offer a variety of trims and engines for the Land Rover Discovery, but we also offer a selection of Land Rover Discovery Sport near Maryville.


Under the hood, both of these Land Rover SUVs are impressive. The Land Rover Discovery offers a 3.0-liter Td6 Diesel engine with 254 horsepower or a 3.0-liter Si6 gasoline engine capable of 335 horsepower. The Discovery also offers 7,716 pounds of towing on the Diesel engine, and 8,201 pounds of towing on the gasoline engine.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport offers a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 246 horsepower and 4,409 pounds of maximum towing capacity. The Discovery Sport doesn't offer any additional engine choices. Both the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Land Rover Discovery can offer you all-wheel drive for that extra level of control and convenience for whatever the weather may bring your way.

Cargo Space & Passenger Volume

  • Seating Capacity: The Land Rover Discovery offers seating for seven passengers, while the Discovery Sport offers seating for five with additional seating for two available.
  • Cargo Space: In the Discovery Sport, you'll get between 27.5 cubic feet and 55.6 cubic feet of cargo space, while the Discovery offers between 10.1 cubic feet and 41.2 cubic feet.
  • Passenger Volume & Legroom: In the Land Rover Discovery, you'll enjoy 37.6 inches of second-row legroom, and with an optional third row, you get 33.5 inches. The Discovery Sport offers 37.6 inches of legroom for rear passengers.

Available Features

The Land Rover Discovery can offer leather seats, a powered tailgate, a 10-inch touchscreen display, and a Powered Inner Tailgate with an additional platform. On the Land Rover Discovery Sport, your standard features include a 10-inch Touch Pro display, plus Emergency Brake Assist, Lane Keep Assist, leather steering wheel, and rain-sensing wipers. In the Discovery, your base features will offer a tad more than the Discovery Sport can offer. The differences in base features make sense considering the base Discovery Sport is available for less than the base Discovery.

In the Land Rover Discovery, you can also enjoy an enhanced sound system offering 10 speakers, Wi-Fi Hotspot, configurable ambient interior lighting, Windsor Leather seats, Powered Gesture Tailgate, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Land Rover Discovery Sport offers smartphone integration, but none of the other features provided in the Discovery.

Safety Features

The Land Rover Discovery and Land Rover Discovery Sport offer plenty of great comfort and luxury features to enjoy on every commute, but how do they compare when considering safety technology? Both of these models can offer you these available safety features:

  • Driver Condition Monitor
  • Cruise Control and Speed Limiter
  • Front and Rear Parking Aid
  • Push-Button Start
  • Smartphone Integration

In the Land Rover Discovery, you'll also have Blind Spot Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition and Adaptive Speed Limiter, and 360-degree Parking Aid. The Land Rover Discovery Sport doesn't have these features available on the base trims, but you can find most of them as part of additional packages. Both of these luxury Land Rover SUVs offers high-class features and comfort, which you won't want to miss out on.
