2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport TD4 180 review
Source : 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport TD4 180 review
Land Rover has finally got its hands on the completely new Ingenium engine. Has the item been worth waiting for? Up to This particular point, our enjoyment of the otherwise impressive Discovery Sport has been spoiled a little by the sole occupant of its engine bay. With Jaguar calling dibs on the first Ingenium motors off the production line, Land Rover’s compact seven-seater was stuck having a venerable 2.2-litre oil burner, a relic of the not so distant past when Ford signed the cheques at Gaydon. For as long as which engine remained, we urged caution, suggesting patience might be rewarded by the virtues of the all-completely new, incoming 2.0-litre unit. Well, which time has come: the Sport is usually the first Land Rover to receive the EU6-compliant Ingenium (the item migrates to the Evoque next) in addition to almost all the important figures shrink or swell accordingly. There are two versions to choose through: a 148bhp example dubbed ‘E-capability’ which comes with admirably low 129g/km CO2 emissions – in addition to doubtless a very little customer base because the item can’t be had with seven seats or the nine-speed automatic gearbox – in addition to a 178bhp variant tested here which will have both these things, in addition to be bought by almost everyone despite its necessarily higher 139g/km. For the record, which’s a 27g/km reduction compared with the outgoing motor, in addition to less than Audi or BMW quote for a Q5 or an X3. the item’s a similar story regarding fuel economy where the Sport’s wishful, official 53.3mpg marginally outstrips the figures claimed by the same rivals.
