Whitley, UK, April 27th 2015 – Land Rover has announced its innovative Ingenium diesel engine will be introduced to the Discovery Sport. Following its highly successful launch in September 2014, the premium compact SUV will now be available with enhanced performance and economy.
The 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine is designed to deliver class-leading 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. The new 150PS derivative in its five seat set-up provides fuel economy of up to 57.7mpg and CO2emissions from 129g/km, whilst the TD4 180PS in its standard 5+2 configuration delivers 139g/km and 53.3 mpg on the combined cycle.
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 that both private and Fleet & Business customers can buy.
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."
The new aluminium TD4 engine features lightweight construction, with stiff cylinder blocks and decoupled injectors, which ensures low levels of vibration and noise intrusion, further enhancing the driver experience.
A series of advanced technologies reduce internal friction, improve refinement and enhance overall performance. In addition, Selective Catalytic Reduction and a new low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation system significantly reduce both CO2 and NOx emissions.
The Ingenium-powered Discovery Sport TD4 150PS will be designated an ‘E-Capability' vehicle, with a blue ‘Sport' badge highlighting the most efficient variant. These vehicles will also feature 18-inch wheels with low rolling resistance tyres. The final drive gearing and engine calibrations have been optimised to provide the lowest possible CO2 for the vehicle.
