Britain’s MG Rover has introduced a new version of its two-litre in-house-built L-series turbodiesel engine.

Power increases from 101 to 113Ps and torque from 240 to 260Nm, while the CO2 emissions figure of 150g/km is unchanged.

The more powerful engine will be offered in the MG ZR and ZS and Rover 25 and 45 models.

The Rover 75 and MG ZT turbodiesel models use a BMW engine.
