After three years of ownerships would you lease/buy another Discovery Sport?

I'm one year into my SE model lease and am considering installing a roof rack. A trailer hitch would be handy too, but it's way overpriced.

After 3 years with the first year model iteration - no.
The newer generation 2017+ DS is much better - my dealer had me test drive a newer Ingenium engine DS and found it behaves more like a Jag F Pace or Evoque with a peppier engine.

I would get a newer DS is they had a diesel option or PHEV.

On and off road traction is amazing and I love how the torque vectoring keeps you gripping around corners, especially power turns.

The alignment has been 100% amazing - in my past 10 vehicles, I have never seen a car that maintains alignment (camber, caster, toe) even after going over rocks, boulders, curbs, hitting sidewalks and popping up on them.

My winter tires I have for sale are a testament of maintaining alignment even after the Land Rover Experience off road course, off roading in the local mountains, and taking shortcuts over curbs.

Roof rack is the best way to use more space up top - loved how the sleek roof rails and low profile cross bars can load up so many different items.....

NOTE: just sold the Thule / Merc ski box.
Still have the factory roof rails, cross bars, and winter tires.....
