In the world of entry-level luxury sport-utility vehicles, it seems that the competition is stronger than ever. And, more entrants are hitting showrooms quicker than ever.

Two all-new examples of that are the Land Rover Discovery Sport and the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class. With the GLC ready for take off and the Discovery Sport arriving in dealerships this year, this will make for an interesting battle.

The Discovery Sport is, predictably, like all Land Rovers. This means it's a utilitarian's dream. With a rather teutonic exterior, it doesn't look like the company designed it to be anything but a bit simple. Its interior isn't any different with nice materials that aren't too showy or exotic. If you're looking for an entry-level SUV that can do a bit of off-roading and isn't over the top, the Discovery Sport may be the choice for you.

The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC is essentially the Discovery Sport's foil. That's because it has a more evocative exterior design and its interior — from what I've seen — is essentially a replica of the C-Class. This means it is class leading and features some really nice bits and baubles. The thing is, however, that's not for everyone.

So, what's it going to be, Spies? Would you rather have the Land Rover or Mercedes-Benz?
