BS6 Land Rover Discovery Sport, RR Evoque deliveries begin
Land Rover India has just announced that it has begun deliveries of the BS6-compliant petrol engine-equipped Discovery Sport facelift and all-new Range Rover Evoque. Both models utilise the same petrol engine with mild-hybrid tech and are available in two trim levels – S and R-Dynamic SE.
The engine is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol unit from JLR’s Ingenium family of engines; it produces 250hp and 365Nm of torque. The engine also comes with a 48V mild-hybrid system for better fuel efficiency and is paired to a 9-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all-four wheels. It is worth noting that both models came with a 180hp, 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine eight from launch.
As mentioned above, both SUVs are available in S and R-Dynamic SE trim levels. Both trims are well-kitted as the entry level ‘S’ model comes with heated wing mirrors, a powered tailgate, a panoramic sunroof, 18-inch alloys, 10-way power adjustable front seats, cruise control and Land Rover’s Terrain Response 2 all-wheel drive system are standard. It also gets the carmaker’s InControl Touch Pro 10-inch infotainment touchscreen system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support and navigation. In top-spec guise, you additionally get a digital instrument cluster, 14-way power adjustable front seats and a dual-touchscreen layout for the infotainment system.
The BS6 petrol Land Rover Discovery Sport is priced at Rs 59.98 lakh for the S model and Rs 63.32 lakh for the R-Dynamic SE. The BS6 petrol Range Rover Evoque, however, is priced at Rs 58 lakh for the base trim and Rs 61.94 lakh for the top-spec variant. Due to their similar pricing, the Discovery Sport and Evoque compete with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLC, BMW X3 and Audi Q5. However, the Discovery Sport’s 5+2 seater configuration helps set it apart from its competitors.
