From May Land Rover will be using new diesel engines in the L and Rover Discovery Sport. The new two-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesels come from the Igenium family and replace the old 2.2-liter four-cylinder.
Land Rover with new fuel-saving label
The new all-aluminum four-cylinder competes in the 150 and 180 hp output levels. Land Rover specifies the standard consumption for the two all-wheel drive versions as 4.9 liters per 100 kilometers. With the 180 PS engine, the Discovery Sport from 0 to 100 km /h in 8.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 188 km /h. At the end of the year, the 150 hp diesel will also be available as a pure front-wheel drive.
New in the range are also particularly consumption-optimized versions that are labeled with the 'E-Capability' label. 'E-Capability' is available for five-seater, manually operated model versions with 150 or 180 hp engines. 18-inch tires with low rolling resistance, a longer geared gearbox and a modified engine set-up ensure even lower CO2 emissions.
