downsizing in all segments of the market is something to which we have become accustomed in recent years. are no longer surprised to see large models close to or exceed two tons and mounted under the hood four-cylinder engines, something that, until less than a decade ago was science fiction. Its purpose is not only to reduce greenhouse gases in its range, but also to bring the model to the spectrum of potential customers with more high, since their starting prices are reduced considerably.
Until now, Land Rover only rode V6 and V8 diesel engines in their ranges, Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, but the firm has just announced the arrival of a new powertrain four-cylinder diesel model Range Rover Sport. This is the engine Ingenium, which is already used by the group Jaguar Land Rover in various models of the two firms, such as the Jaguar XE or the Range Rover Evoque. It has a displacement of two litres and delivers 240 HP, with a remarkable maximum torque of 500Nm.
A priori may seem to some figures insufficient for a model so large, but neither are so far away from the 258 HP and 600 Nm of the Range Rover Sport 3.0 TDV6. The average consumption approved is 5.2 l/100 km, with a CO emissions2 of 159 g/km, Without a doubt, it’s just a few figures very good for a model that weighs more than 2 tons, although the actual numbers will be a lot more bulky than the theoretical figure. The V6 engine has an average consumption of 6.3 l/100 km and emissions of 182 g/km.
on The sidelines of the introduction of a new engine, the range Range Rover Sport 2017 will also include improvements in the equipment, the same that we already saw in the presentation of the range Range Rover 2017. So, it has improved the functioning of systems of safety such as the control of dead angle, braking, autonomous emergency or the adaptive cruise control. The multimedia computer InControl Touch Pro now has a new screen of 10 inches in place of 8 inches.
the first units of the renewed Range Rover and Range Rover Sport will arrive in dealerships-european to the end of the year. In the case of the Range Rover Sport, the introduction of this new engine tetracilíndrico help you to reduce significantly the starting price, which now stands at 70.300 euros.
