Upgraded engine technology gives new life to the Land Rover Discovery Sport
11 Jul 2017
LAND ROVER has added its new Ingenium engine to the Discovery Sport model line-up to freshen up the driveline.
The new diesel unit is a solid step forward, of alloy construction and quieter than the outgoing veteran powerplant, as well as easier on the fuel – at least according to the official laboratory claims.
All of which makes it a worthy addition to the Disco Sport’s arsenal, nestled within the compliant but composed chassis, cloaked in handsome looks and endowed with a versatile interior.
Unlike many in the segment there is genuine scope for off-road work even without a low-range transfer case – something not common in this market segment anyway – but the Terrain Response system and underbody protection imbue faith over rougher terrain.
The option of a third row adds a level of flexibility to the roomy and comfortable interior, but the shadow of Land Rover’s past and the quality niggles that were once part of the ownership experience have not been banished yet.
