Land Rover Discovery Sport Aims To Be More Eco-Friendly With Advanced Ingenium Engine


Land Rover will be incorporating its innovative Ingenium diesel engine to the Discovery Sport. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine is designed to deliver impressive torque and power outputs, while producing reduced CO2 emissions and consuming lesser fuel. The Discovery Sport’s compliant Ingenium engine is available with one power output - 150PS - delivering a fuel economy of 5.9litres/100km and CO2 emissions of 156g/km. The engine has a top speed of 180km/h and will accelerate from 0–100km/h in 10.3 seconds.

The Ingenium-powered Discovery Sport will also be designated an ‘E-Capability’ vehicle. E-Capability will apply to both five-seat and seven-seat models fitted with the 150PS Ingenium engine, with 18-inch wheels and low rolling resistance tyres. Additionally, the final drive gearing and engine calibrations have been optimised to provide the lowest possible CO2 for the vehicle.

A series of advanced technologies reduce internal friction, improve refinement and enhance overall performance. In addition, Land Rover’s Selective Catalytic Reduction and a new low-pressure exhaust gas re-circulation system significantly reduce both CO2 and NOx emissions. Extended service intervals on the new Ingenium engine, from 26,000 to 34,000 km, lowers running costs over the vehicle’s lifetime.

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 driving experience.

Land Rover’s advanced new Ingenium engines are manufactured in the UK at the company’s new state-of-the-art £500m Engine Manufacturing Centre in the West Midlands, which is set to produce 450,000 Ingenium engines each year.
