Motivation for the new Discovery Sport has been made public by Land Rover. According to the car maker the new Discovery Sport will benefit from a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter Ingenium turbodiesel engine.
To be more precise the motor of the car will have two states of tune. Drivers can opt for the 150 PS (110 kW) & 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) or for the 180 PS (132 kW) & 430 Nm (318 lb-ft) version.
As far as performance for the 150 PS (110 kW) & 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) version goes the producer informs that Discovery Sport five-seat automatic model will take the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in an amazing time of just 8.9 seconds.
And geat news continue as the 150 PS 6-speed manual five-seat model will bring drivers an economy of 57.7 mpg UK (48 mpg US or 4.9 liters / 100 km) as far as fuel consumption is concerned.
Basically the Ingenium engine will turn the new Discovery Sport into one of the most economical cars in the Land Rover lineup. To mark this the producer will place a blue “Sport” badge on the new model.
18-inch alloys wrapped in low-rolling resistance tires come to help make the new Discovery Sport even more desirable and also to increase performance.
