DIESEL VS. GAS

INFORMING YOUR DECISION

A CHOICE OF ENGINES

You may have your heart set on one of our vehicles and you probably know about the range of gas, diesel and PHEV engines we offer, but which is the right one for you? We have engines available to best match your lifestyle and types of journeys you most regularly undertake.

WHAT KIND OF DRIVER ARE YOU?

  • Tree-lined city street.

    INTRA CITY

    If you use your vehicle for short journeys within a city, such as school or shopping, then a gas engine would be a suitable choice. You would rarely drive on the highway and do minimal mileage, mainly in built-up areas.

  • Empty highway.

    INTER CITY

    For high-mileage drivers predominantly taking longer journeys on the highway and rarely travelling within the city, a diesel engine would be a considered option.

  • Tree-lined country road.

    TOWN AND COUNTRY

    For those living outside the city, but regularly commuting by highway, a diesel engine would be suitable for consideration.

    PLEASURE DRIVE

    If you love driving mainly for pleasure on country roads and rarely in urban environments, then either a diesel or gas would suit you.

INGENIUM ENGINES

Ingenium is our new breed of engine designed for effortless performance and refinement. With advanced technology and based on a strong and compact aluminum block, Ingenium is as intelligent as it is innovative.

KEY FACTS

  • Land Rover Discovery approaching a bend in the road from behind.

    NITROGEN OXIDES

    All our vehicles feature advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after-treatment (i.e. Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)) which helps to reduce NOX emissions.

  • Range Rover Sport.

    DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTERS

    Highly efficient DPFs (Diesel Particulate Filters) in our vehicles capture exhaust particulate matter (also known as soot).
