You're looking for a premium European SUV. You don't want anything too big, but seven seats and all-wheel drive would be a big plus. As would having it all for under $100,000.

Sounds like you want a bit of everything. Luckily for you, there are two new-for-2020 SUVs which will fit your needs nicely. In this comparison test we'll be putting these closely matched seven-seaters head-to-head to help inform your choice.

In the Orange corner, we have the Land Rover Discovery Sport. Having had this particular niche of the market cornered for five years, the Disco is the reigning champ, even if it is by default.

It's been heavily updated for this year, with some significant changes under the skin. We've selected the top P250 petrol engine, in mid-grade SE guise.

Over in the Grey corner is the challenger. The Mercedes-Benz GLB. An all-new nameplate for Mercedes, the GLB sits above the hatch-based GLA, and below the GLC mid-sizer wearing the latest Benz tech and design inside and out.

Unlike the Discovery, the GLB is petrol-only in Australia, and we've selected one in mid-grade GLB 250 trim.
