Pretty nice alternative, priced right IMO, power is similar to the NX, but does 0-60 in 7.8 sec, which is kind of weird considering the awesome 9 speed transmission the LR gets. I beats the NX when it comes to cargo space, can seat 7 (5 adults + 2 kids), real off road capability, looks can be debated, front end of the NX is a love/hate debate (especially the F-sport), the front end of the LR looks more conservative and is attractive, inside, the seats of the LR are weird looking, NX is better for that, but the LR has an 8" touchscreen in the middle, which I like better and should be easier to use than a remote screen controlled by a pad. Worth checking out, much better alternative overall than the bland looking Q3.
If only Lexus had put such an awesome transmission in the NX (ZF nine-speed automatic transmission):crying:

Agree, worth checking into. LR interiors are nice. I'm trying to determine it's width without the mirrors, as LRs seem to have wider bodies, which is ok except I don't have a big garage. With another alternative, other dealers may be inclined to reduce their prices.

Is the Discovery Sport going to be priced above the NX or are they around the same? I think that Disco Sport is going to be priced a bit higher than the NX. Do we know what its price is yet?

$38K to start I think, but the thing I hate is that you have to get the HSE model just to be able to get Sirius as an option, stupid B.S.
I checked my dealer online, only one in Las Vegas, and everything they have is $15-20K over Msrp, wth!

Land Rover is very consistent...consistently among the worst in quality and durability! Would not touch this, esp 1st year model, with a ten foot pole!

The NX is still the best overall, looks great inside and out, and 0-60 in 7 secs is pretty good, now we have to find out the price for a 200T F to see if its worth it.

I didn't realize that LR has a bad reputation with quality. I did know that Lexus has great quality ratings though. I concur that maybe we should wait until release to see what happens with the newest LR model. It could end up having some problems. Land Rover does have nice designs though.
