Land Rover has made its new Ingenium engine range available in the Discovery Sport.
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 CO2 emissions from 129g/km, whilst the TD4 180PS in its standard 5+2 configuration delivers 139g/km and 53.3 mpg on the combined cycle.
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 aluminum 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. E-Capability introduces a five seat option in the UK for the first time, with all TD4 180PS variants remaining with 5+2 seating as standard.
Pricing for the Discovery Sport featuring Ingenium engines remains unchanged whilst the new TD4 150PS engine brings a lower starting price of £30,695 for the manual five seat 'SE' trim.
Across the range service intervals have been extended from 16,000 to 21,000 miles lowering running costs over the vehicle's lifetime.
Land Rover's new Ingenium engines are manufactured in the UK at the company's new £500m Engine Manufacturing Centre in the West Midlands, which is set to produce 450,000 Ingenium engines each year.
The new Ingenium engine is available to order now with first customer deliveries commencing from September 2015.
