For those looking for service schedules I saw a link posted elsewhere that advises if you enter your VIN it will provide service information. Hope this helps. https://osh.landrover.com

The P200/250/290 Powertrain has various parameters involved in indicating a scheduled service, none of which are the same just to confuse you. This is why nothing is available in writing regarding the petrol engine - it's too volatile to say X miles or X months.

As a general rule of thumb (territory specific), for UK vehicles it is suggested 12 months/15000 miles as a mainstay. Other factors may affect this.

Thanks for your pragmatic and helpful reply. I just wanted an idea of what to expect as we're about to swap our diesel for a MY2020, p200. I assumed the petrol required 12 month/10.000mile services and just wanted confirmation.
Is there a service plan available for new vehicles?

Petrol intervals are 12 months / 16K miles. Service plans are available (on the LR website), but are not as good value as the previous scheme.

In other words, the petrol services are the same as the (actual) diesel services. Once a year.

Take a drive in the petrol it’s a great engine .!

Better still if you don’t need 7 seats take an FPace out for a spin too , better mpg by miles I’m averaging 34mog with a heavy right foot.

Test drives are the way to go.
