New, in a manner of speaking

Land Rover’s has sent out a press release saying the Defender has a new 2.2-litre diesel engine and it'll be here by Christmas, bringing "new levels of performance and refinement". But hold your excitement, Land Rover fans, it's just the Fiord Puma "Transit" motor we already get, massaged to meet Euro 5 regulations. It loses a couple of hundred cubic centimeters of capacity in the process, but delivers the same power, torque and economy as the  2.4. Emissions, however, are lower.
