A Choice of Engines

You may have your heart set on one of our vehicles and you probably know about the range of petrol, diesel and PHEV engines we offer, but which is the right one for you? The choice of engines we have available allows you to match your lifestyle and the types of journeys you most regularly undertake with the engine that’s best for you.

WHAT KIND OF DRIVER ARE YOU?




INTRA CITY

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

INTER CITY

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

TOWN AND COUNTRY

For those living outside the city, but regularly commuting by motorway, a diesel engine would be suitable for consideration. Land Rover's EU6 Diesels are exempt from the proposed charges in Ultra Low Emission Zones.

PLEASURE DRIVE

If you love the thrill and drive mainly for pleasure on country roads, and rarely in urban environments, then either a diesel or petrol would suit you.

KEY FACTS




EURO 6 ENGINES

Our EU6 diesel engines are among the cleanest in the world. Their emission levels are comparable to petrol engines but with CO2 emissions that are 20-25 per cent lower.

NITROGEN OXIDES

All our vehicles, from September 2015 onwards, feature advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after-treatment (i.e. AdBlue) which help reduce NOx emissions.

DPFs

Between 2004 and 2016, our NOX emissions have been reduced by more than 90 per cent. 

Highly efficient DPFs (Diesel Particulate Filters) in our vehicles capture 99.9 per cent of all particles.

ULEZ

Our EU6 engines are exempt from the proposed Ultra Low Emission Zone daily charge (ULEZ), proposed by Transport for London in the UK.

GLOSSARY



NOx​

​Nitrogen Oxide is a gas which affects air quality.​

CO2​

​Carbon Dioxide is a gas which affects global warming.​

PM

Particulate Matter: solid and liquid particles suspended in exhaust gases which affect air quality.

EU5

Euro 5 standard from September 2009 – introduction of Particulate Filter.

​EU6

Euro 6 standard from September 2014 – introduction of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).​

DEF

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (commonly known as AdBlueTM) - solution injected into exhaust to reduce NOx emissions.

DPF

​Diesel Particulate Filter removes 99.9% of all particles before they leave the exhaust.​

SCR

​Selective Catalytic Reduction is an active exhaust gas after-treatment system reducing NOx.​

WLTP

WLTP (Worldwide harmonised Light vehicle Test Procedure) is the new process that has been phased in from 2017, which measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.

​NEDC

​New European Driving Cycle – is a laboratory testing method used for measuring emissions for vehicles and taxation policy.​

RDE​

​Real World Driving Emissions - Revised EU6 emissions legislation that is designed to simulate real world driving.​

ULEZ​

​Ultra Low Emissions Zone – area in London where charges are imposed on pre-EU6 vehicles.​
