The British specialty automaker is constantly updating its range of models and now the rather oldie but still fashionable Evoque and its newer group brother Discovery Sport are being treated to new entries in the Ingenium engine family.
The automaker is amidst a major process of enhancing the powertrains of numerous models in the range, all treated to new and shiny examples of the new generation Ingenium engines. For the 2018 Evoque and Discovery Sport, Land Rover has prepared the new Ingenium 2.0-liter engines as Si4 units, alongside a feisty 240 horsepower twin-turbo diesel that was first seen on the Jaguar F-Pace crossover and XE entry-level sedan. The Evoque will carry a rating of 240 hp and 500 Nm (368.9 lb-ft) of torque, enough to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in just six seconds.
Meanwhile the two new gasoline Si4 Ingenium units come as 240 hp and 290 hp derivatives, with as much as 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. The Evoque will have a fuel economy rating of 38.7 mpg (7.3l/100km) and the Discovery will average 35.3 mpg (8l/100km). land Rover’s new powerful diesel meanwhile stands at 44.1 mpg (6.4l/100km) inside the Discovery Sport. Both the Evoque and Discovery are only offered with AWD with these engines. Also new for the 2018 model year, the Evoque Cabriolet can be had with a base SE Dynamic trim, optional sports seats, and a wider color range.
