“THE EVOQUE MARKS A BOLD EVOLUTION OF RANGE ROVER DESIGN. WITH ITS DRAMATIC RISING BELTLINE, A MUSCULAR SHOULDER RUNNING THE LENGTH OF THE CAR, AND A DISTINCTIVE TAPER TO THE FLOATING ROOFLINE, THE RANGE ROVER EVOQUE ADOPTS A VERY DYNAMIC PROFILE WITH A POWERFUL AND ATHLETIC STANCE”
(Range Rover Evoque Review from Gerry McGovern. Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer)
Range Rover Evoque Review
The Evoque 2018 has evolved over the years and received a facelift in 2014 but kept its overall sleek compact SUV styling the same. Aesthetically, the slab sides and smaller windows make it appear sporty, and the modern pillars and bonnet update the traditional Range Rover look to become more contemporary. On the interior, you will find excellent detailing, strong lines and clean surfaces to name but a few design aspects.
The new model has also had infotainment upgrades, with the 10” touchscreen display making entertainment and navigation easy. The Touch Pro Voice Recognition system can even understand verbal instructions and the Navigation Pro will easily locate the best place to park and take advantage of intelligent routing. All this is geared towards the enjoyment of driving and increasing safety by optimised efficiency. The need for a separate sat-nav is gone and the head-up laser display presents vehicle data and directions on the windscreen, keeping your focus on the road ahead.
In addition to its attractive features, strength and stability have not been compromised. Built for the ultimate safety and comfort, it feels luxurious and ready for anything! With all terrain progress control, 4-wheel drive, cruise control, and traction and braking systems, the Evoque can master all surfaces and weather conditions, even up to 500mm bodies of water. Explorers will be happy to hear that there is a towing capacity of up to 2,000kg and despite its smaller boot size of 575 litres, all rear seats can fold completely flat to maximise storage capacity. You can view their advert here showing the Land Rover effortlessly transitioning from city driving to scaling difficult obstacles within seconds.
With a 2L diesel engine, 180 PS power and 430 Nm Torque, the Evoque is still a force to be reckoned with and can accelerate from 0-60 in 8.5 seconds with a max speed of 95mph! With a 9 speed automatic gearbox and reduced changing time, drivers are sure to enjoy smooth and easy travel.
