When you’re in the market for a luxury crossover SUV, there are really only a few brands today that are producing models for discerning drivers. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is certainly among an elite group of crossovers, blending opulence with real off-road capabilities while earning a number of top reviews. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC is also counted among noteworthy models in the class, but it ultimately falls short of the Land Rover model in several ways. Find out more here, and then visit Land Rover Fort Myers to experience the Land Rover Discovery Sport firsthand.

Off-Road Capabilities

Whether you choose the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport or the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC, you’ll get a standard turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine, with both models sporting comparable performance numbers. Both vehicles are also offered all-wheel drive, although the Land Rover Discovery Sport is the only one that actually comes standard with all-wheel drive. Also, only the Land Rover model is offered with advanced off-road capabilities in the form of the Terrain Response system and the All Terrain Progress Control system, which lets you set low-speed cruise control when trekking off the beaten path.

Cargo Space

Behind the second row of seats, the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport serves up a generous 32.7 cubic feet of space that’s perfect for groceries, luggage, and even bulky camping supplies. Compare that to the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC, which only gives you 19.4 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space, and the superiority of the Land Rover Discovery Sport’s storage abilities becomes all the more apparent.

Standard Features

Both of these models are predictably well-equipped with features like Bluetooth®, dual-zone automatic climate control, power adjustable driver and front passenger seats, a rearview camera, push-button start, and advanced multimedia systems. The Land Rover SUV sets itself apart, however, with standard partial leather upholstery and exciting technology flourishes like an 8-inch touchscreen display and an 11-speaker, 380-watt Meridian™ sound system. By contrast, the Mercedes-Benz GLC only gets standard leatherette upholstery, a 7-inch touchscreen, and an eight-speaker sound system, offering nothing extraordinary to write home about.
