Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) India today announced the launch of the 2019 Discovery Sport SUV, and the SUV for the new model year comes with more powerful engine options. The 2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport continues to be powered by the 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine from the Ingenium family, but the motor now offers an increased power output of 177 bhp. The base model Pure variant, however, still gets the 147 bhp version, while the SE and HSE variants get the more powerful version.
The petrol version of the Land Rover Discovery Sport, on the other hand, will continue to get the same 237 bhp, 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine, which will continue to come with the SE and HSE trims. Both the petrol and diesel engines of the Discovery Sport come mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox. The HSE Luxury variant now gets a Dynamic Design Pack and an upgraded Touch Pro infotainment system.
