Would You Buy a New 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport?

So we are in the market for a big 7 seater family car. Always owned Japanese cars (toyota, subaru) so I would like to try something else a little "nicer" in terms of street credibility (yeah yeah, insert the <your buying the badge> comment here).
I've heard an old wives tale that Land Rover reliability is absolutely terrible and you would be insane to buy one.
I've also read online forums where owners have had multiple Discovery Sport vehicles over many years and never had an issue. I'm struggling to really determine the overall experience of actual Land Rover (discovery sport's) owners. Where we live, i see HEAPS of them on the road. They are the soccer mum car of the hills of sydney. I don't see any broken down on the side of the road like i do Audi and BMWs.
I can't find an Australian based owners forum. All i can see is productreview.com.au with some terrible and some great reviews.
Currently tossing up between a 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport SE Petrol (circa $66k optioned up) or staying comfortable with 7 years warranty Korean designed 2020 Hyundai Sante Fe Highlander (circa $66k STANDARD comes with everything you can imagine except for flying ability). I know what ur thinking, Land Rover vs Hyandai? Yeah i like to explore different ends of the spectrum.
Would you buy a Land Rover Discovery Sport? Or do you have any personal horror stories to share with me based on experience with the Land Rover brand recently??
Update: The VW Tiguan Allspace is the new contender following mentions below by you guys, thank you we will test drive and compare!
Edit: amazed and overwhelmed by the response from the ozbargain community. You guys are a fountain of information, thank you.
