British luxury carmaker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is going to use its all-new 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engines for 2018 model year Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque, informed the company in an official statement released on Monday (12 June).

This is the first introduction of JLR’s new petrol Ingenium family into its Land Rover vehicles.

The new four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine is produced at the company’s Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton, UK.

The Ingenium petrol engines feature electrohydraulic control of the inlet valves which helps in reducing pumping losses and provides control over airflow into the combustion chambers.

JLR’s Ingenium diesel engines also aids in decreasing pumping losses. Drivers can choose the more powerful Ingenium diesel: the Sd4. Equipped with two turbochargers, this engine produces 240PS and 500Nm of torque from 1,500 rpm.

The Range Rover Evoque is available in three bodystyles – coupé, five-door and convertible. It was first introduced in 2011.

The 240PS Ingenium petrol engine, available in all bodystyles, is 15 per cent more efficient than the previously-available GTDi engine, claims the automaker. The 290PS Ingenium petrol engine accelerates from 0-100km/h in 6.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 231km/h.

Customers who choose the higher-powered Ingenium Petrol will receive the dynamic exterior pack, comprising enlarged front and rear bumpers, gloss black finishes for the grille, vents and 20-inch five split-spoke alloy wheels.

In the Discovery Sport, the new petrol engines are EU-VI compliant. The 0-100km/h sprint is completed in 7.5 seconds thanks to the 240PS and 500Nm outputs.
