The Range Rover Evoque - The engine

"Since the spring, that very P300e has been part of the drive range of the globally successful Range Rover Evoque. Now Land Rover is making the engine selection more modern and larger once again. Two further developed 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesels from the latest Ingenium generation have found their way under the hood - both diesel engines are equipped with mild hybrid technology (MHEV). This comprises a belt starter generator and a battery unit so that energy normally lost during braking or deceleration can be fed back to the 48-volt battery. Thanks to recuperation, more power is available, for example for overtaking, while consumption is reduced. The Evoque's two new MHEV diesels are available with 120 kW (163 hp) or 150 kW (204 hp) - more powerful than the previously installed units, but at the same time with even better values for CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The D165 emits 131 grams of CO2 per kilometer, while the combined standard consumption is 5.0 liters per 100 kilometers. Also new in the 2021 Evoque model year is the 1.5-liter Ingenium three-cylinder gasoline engine, which was previously available as part of the P300e plug-in powertrain package and can now also be ordered as the sole source of propulsion. Classified as the P160, the engine provides 118 kW (160 hp) of maximum torque of 260 Nm. The lightweight powerplant, which is offered with front-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission, impresses with a successful balance of performance and efficiency. CO2 emissions from the 1.5-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine are 152 g/km, while combined standard consumption is 6.6 liters per 100 kilometers."
