The Discovery towers over snow with 11.1 inches of ground clearance. The Sport reaches 0.2 inches farther skyward, with 11.3 inches of ground clearance. The full-fledged Discovery comes with the same 3.0-liter, 340-hp V6 available in the Range Rover Sport. The Discovery Sport’s only available engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter, 240-hp unit.

Choosing between the two models, the Sport is by far the cheaper option, starting at $37,695. The more expensive Discovery starts at $49,900 MSRP. Either model is sure to haul you to your destination, regardless of mother nature’s temperament.
