Range Rover has replaced its ageing entry-level TDV6 engine with a more powerful and cleaner SDV6.

The new 3.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine that currently sits in the Range Rover Sport produces 202kW and 625Nm, up from 190kW and 600Nm on the old engine, and delivers a claimed combined fuel consumption of 7.7L/100km.

That figure is an improvement on the outgoing turbocharged TDV6 by 0.8L but the British brand says the new engine complies with stricter Euro 6d-temp standards, and has been tested on the new WLTP fuel consumption cycle that produces more realistic real-world fuel consumption figures.

The more powerful 4.4-litre SDV8 engine producing 250kW/740Nm remains unchanged and both diesel engines are mated to a revised eight-speed automatic transmission that promises to be more efficient.

Petrol engine options are the new plug-in hybrid P400e and powerhouse 5.0-litre supercharged V8.

Further updates for 2019 include adaptive cruise control with stop and go function that can be equipped with automatic steering assist. Both work together to form traffic follow assist that can work without lane markings, using image recognition to follow the car in front.

"Range Rover is the original luxury SUV and the most capable and refined vehicle of its kind. The latest updates ensure customers enjoy the peerless comfort they've come to expect, with more choice, convenience and safety than ever," said Jaguar Land Rover vehicle line director Nick Collins.

The new entry-level SDV6 in base-grade trim starts from $194,535 plus on-road costs and is available to order now.
