The 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport comes equipped with a range of four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. Both the all-alloy Si4 2.0-litre petrol engine and the 2.2-litre turbodiesel feature high-pressure direct injection, low-friction internal components and smart regenerative charging for outstanding performance and economy. Land Rover’s new Ingenium engines are set to see big drops in fuel use and emissions, with varied power levels for this SUV.
According to a press release from the British car maker, the 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine is designed to deliver impressive torque and power outputs, combined with excellent refinement, reduced CO2 emissions and lower fuel consumption.
The Discovery Sport’s EU6 compliant Ingenium engine will be available with two power outputs – 150PS and 180PS – delivering fuel economy of up to 57.7mpg (4.9l/100km) and CO2 emissions from 129g/km. The powerful 180PS engine has a top speed of 117 mph (188 km/h) and can accelerate from 0 – 100km/h in just 8.9 seconds*. The arrival of these cutting-edge engines, which will replace the current diesel engine in EU6 markets, ensures Discovery Sport is one of the most efficient premium compact SUVs in the world.
Murray Dietsch, Director of Land Rover Programmes, said: “Land Rover’s new family of Ingenium engines is truly class leading. By introducing it to the Discovery Sport, we can now offer enhanced fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions, while improving overall performance. The Ingenium engine confirms Discovery Sport’s position as the most versatile and capable compact premium SUV in the world.”
