Land Rover has announced its Ingenium diesel engine will be fitted to the Discovery Sport. It is already fitted to the firm's Evoque 4x4, Jaguar's 3-series rivaling XE and the XF.
The Euro6 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine is available in two power outputs - 150hp and 180hp. The lower powered model emits 129g/km of CO2 and returns 57.7mpg, while the more powerful option returns 53.2mpg.
The new engine will replace the current Euro5 190hp 2.2-litre diesel engine, which emits 162g/km of CO2 and returns 40.4mpg.
The new models are priced from £36,695 for the manual five-seat SE mode. Customer deliveries commence in September 2015 and the car is on sale now.
"Land Rover's new family of Ingenium engines is truly class leading. By introducing it to the Discovery Sport, we can now offer enhanced fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions, while improving overall performance," said Murray Dietsch, director of Land Rover Programmes.
"The Ingenium engine confirms Discovery Sport's position as the most versatile and capable compact premium SUV in the world," said Dietsch.
