Land Rover will introduce new Ingenium diesel engines in the Discovery Sport model SUVs. After its launch in September 2014, the vehicle will now be more refined and efficient.
These 2.0-litre, four cylinder units are designed to deliver better fuel economy, torque, refinement and reduced CO2 emissions.
These Ingenium diesel engines will be available with two power displacements—150 PS and 180 PS. These engines will replace the current diesel engine in EU6 markets.
The 180 PS engine choice will consume 4.9 liters of diesel every 100 km and will have a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of just 8.9 seconds, while having a top speed of 188 km/h.
These engines will further enhance driving pleasure since they feature lightweight construction, with stiff cylinder blocks and decoupled injectors, which ensures low levels of vibration and noise.
Murray Dietsch, the 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."
