The new Land Rover Discovery Sport SUV is the latest JLR model to benefit from the spritely new diesel engine known as the Ingenium. First launched for Jaguar saloons, the Ingenium offers a pretty great compromise between performance and efficiency.

Jaguar-Land Rover have always been good at making great diesel engines and the Ingenium is no exception. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine is designed to deliver class-leading torque, power outputs, and economy ratings, but it is also renowned for its excellent refinement. These are not the qualities that would usually team up in a diesel engine.

In the Land Rover Discovery Sport the Ingenium will be available in two 150PS and 180PS variants. The former comes with the five seat version of the car and offers 57.7mpg and CO2 emissions from 129g/km, and the latter with the 5+2 model delivering 139g/km and 53.3 mpg on the combined cycle.

Some of the main characteristics of this new engine include stiff cylinder blocks and decoupled injectors as well as Selective Catalytic Reduction and a new low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation system significantly reduce both CO2 and NOx emissions. The Discovery Sport equipped with the Ingenium engine also gets 18-inch wheels with low rolling resistance tyres and revised final drive gearing.
