Five years after launch, the Discovery Sport remains Land Rover’s best-selling car. So, it’s perhaps no surprise that its mid-life refresh has seen the exterior remain largely the same, with some fancier LED lights and retrimmed bumpers about the sum of its aesthetic evolution. Regular facelift fare.

What isn’t regular facelift fare is completely changing the architecture beneath your car, but that’s what Land Rover’s done. This is a facelift that’s been three years in the making, with similar underpinnings to the new Range Rover Evoque slotted beneath that rather familiar looking body.
