The Discovery Sport has received an engineering rethink with the addition of two-wheel-drive versions at the bottom of the range, and a twin-turbocharged 237bhp 2.0-litre version of the Ingenium diesel engine at the top. All versions are available to order now, with a Pure eD4 two-wheel-drive model kicking off the line-up at £28,355. The same drivetrain combination is available in SE, SE Tech and HSE trim, too, with CO2 emissions of 123g/km and fuel economy on the combined cycle of 60.1mpg. Meanwhile, the new flagship engine, already seen in the Range Rover Sport and tested elsewhere in this issue, powers SE, SE Tech, HSE, HSE Black, HSE Luxury and HSE Dynamic Luxury editions of the Discovery Sport, with prices starting at £38,695 and rising to £51,070. The 237bhp SD4 engine manages to produce 369lb ft of torque, and official figures rate the newcomer at 169g/km of CO2 and 44.1mpg on the combined cycle. The expanded 2018 model year Discovery Sport line-up is available for ordering at any Land Rover dealer now.
As with the Discovery Sport, a new top-of-the-range Ingenium diesel engine joins the Range Rover Evoque line-up, producing 237bhp and wearing an SD4 moniker. It is paired exclusively with a nine-speed automatic transmission and allwheel- drive, and offered in HSE Dynamic and HSE Dynamic Lux trim levels. Meanwhile, the flagship Autobiography specification cars are now exclusively powered by the unit, with the outgoing TD4 engine now discontinued. Other changes to the Range Rover Evoque include a cheaper SE Dynamic trim level for the Convertible model and front-wheeldrive eD4 editions of the five-door Evoque in HSE Dynamic and HSE Dynamic Lux equipment levels. The expanded 29-model range is available to order now from Land Rover dealers, with deliveries expected shortly.

Over the past six years, more than 600,000 Range Rover Evoques have been built at Land Rover’s plant in Halewood, Merseyside, making it the bestselling model in the UK. To celebrate, the firm has launched a limited-edition Landmark model. Priced from £39,000 for a car equipped with the 178bhp 2.0-litre TD4 engine and manual transmission, a nine-speed automatic version costs £40,840. Available in a choice of Moraine Blue, as featured here, or Yulong White and Corris Grey, the Evoque Landmark boasts 19-inch gloss dark grey alloy wheels, a contrasting grey roof and a graphite-coloured grille, as well as bonnet and tailgate lettering in the same hue. On the inside, the dark grey accents continue, with a brushed satin centre console and ebony leather seats that feature a contrasting stitching and a perforated centre section. Extra equipment includes keyless entry, an electric gesture control tailgate and a fixed panoramic roof.
