It's pretty common knowledge that JLR brought all the automotive journalists to Iceland to test out the Discovery Sport. Road & Track is the latest to publish their first drive review of the vehicle.

It also shares the Evoque's laggy, boomy, Ford-sourced 2.0-liter, 240-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and recalcitrant, uncoordinated, frustrating ZF 9-speed automatic. The snow and low speeds still couldn't hide how badly this powertrain begs for its own retirement. Luckily, we expect Jaguar Land Rover's new Ingenium four-cylinder to appear in a few years—in both gasoline and diesel forms, the latter of which makes me go gooey inside.
Though the Disco Sport is slightly shorter than the Q5, Jaguar says it has more passenger room than the Audi and more cargo space than any of its competitors.
Road & Track also gives good marks to the Disco Sport to ride quality and off-road capability. Just look at it driving through this river.
