Land Rover Discovery Sport review

What do you guys think of this for a three-year lease? More visibility than the Evoque, but duller looking.

Looks fine, as long as the residual is OK.

Do you two actually like it, or do you merely find it meh??

@Chris: Meh. The Civic has to go and she wants something "high". She also wants excellent greenhouse visibility.

Then with not something like a Ford Edge or the like?

If you want a Land Rover with a greenhouse, go for the LR4. Maybe a 2011 for 2/5ths what it cost new. Otherwise, a Subaru Forester is tough to beat, won't depreciate as badly, has most of the same creature comforts, is sturdier should you want to keep it longer than 3 years, and only lacks the same badge cachet.

@Pete: If it's a RR/LR product, I'd only feel comfortable getting a new one under warranty and getting rid of it after a few years.

Although I doubt it is any more inspiring to you, what about the X1? From a pure (leasing) value perspective, it might be worth it - that is, BMW is notorious for having slightly jacked up residual values. Which might work in your favor if you found one lightly optioned (but it's a BMW so that is probably a pipe dream)

@Chris: The X1 and X3 don't do it for me, at all.

Christopher Daily-Diamond said...

Yeah, for me either.

I'm having a hard time thinking outside the box on this one.
