Can Land Rover's replacement Freelander muscle into the compact premium SUV market as top dog? We've tested the new Discovery Sport against its peers in the March 2015 issue of CAR magazine. 

In print you can see how the Disco Sport fares against its key rivals: the slick Audi Q5, the Jeep Cherokee and its own inhouse rival, the Range Rover Evoque. Click here for a preview of our latest issue.

In a beautifully photographed group test played out against an endless winter sky shrouding the north Norfolk coast, it quickly transpired there were two arch-protagonists in with a shout for class honours.

So we took the new Land Rover Discovery Sport off for a video twin test against its nearest challenger, the Audi Q5. CAR magazine's associate editor CJ Hubbard is your guide in our video above.
