2021 BMW X5 vs. 2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport


The 2021 BMW X5 is a large and luxurious SUV that has plenty to offer. Being one of the flagship SUVs from BMW (the others being the X6 and the X7), the 2021 BMW X5 is suitably decked with luxury features. The large SUV has plenty of luggage and cabin space, which ensures that you can go for long drives with your family without any problems. The 2021 BMW X5 is a great choice when you need performance backed by excellent ride quality. The 2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport is also one of the top SUVs by Land Rover. The 2021 Discovery Sport is full of luxury features and tech. Here is a comparison between these two cars.

Design & Style

When it comes to design, the 2021 2021 X5 has been redesigned for 2021. It features a fresh and bigger grille thus giving it a sportier stance. The 2021 X5 retains its flared wheel arches as well as its large wheels. Inside, you get various leather trims and many other luxury features. The instrument panel is well designed and intuitive, meaning that everything is within reach. When it comes to the 2021 Land Rover Discovery, you get the same luxury feel that you can expect from a car of this pedigree. Everything feels premium and the car is stylishly designed in line with Land Rover’s most recent design cues. Trunk space is not generous though so this car may not be ideal as a family carrier, especially for long trips.

Technology & Safety

Tech features in the 2021 BMW X5 are understandably top of the range and come in plenty. The 2021 X5 features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard, which means you can do a full range of operations with your phone while enjoying complete integration with your car. The 2021 X5 also a 12-speaker audio system that is pretty awesome. Those looking for even better sound can opt for an upgrade that delivers even better sound quality. In the 2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport, you get a host of features as well. There is a great infotainment system although it is not as responsive as the iDrive powered one on the BMW X5. Still, the car has plenty of tech with more available as upgrades.


The BMW X5 comes with a number of engine trims for you to choose from. They range from a turbocharged V6 to a twin-turbo V8 that can move the SUV from zero to sixty in just 4 seconds. Regardless of the trim that you opt for, you will have plenty of power on your hands and the 2021 X5 responds intuitively to your inputs. The 2021 Discovery Sport comes with a four-cylinder turbocharged engine which is good enough for most activities that this SUV is likely to face. It is not however finely tuned for sport-mode driving (despite the Sport label) and thus lacks the thrills that you are likely to find in the 2021 X5.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 BMW X5 and the 2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport are both superb cars in their own right. They are well-engineered and styled, meaning most people are likely to love driving them. The X5 however edges out the Discovery Sport when it comes to tech functionality and ride quality. For this reason, the 2021 BMW X5 easily wins this comparison.
