Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Highlights
The Range Rover Evoque is a subcompact premium crossover SUV manufactured by the British luxury automaker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR). In 2018, the manufacturer unveiled the second generation of the vehicle during an auto-event in London. It is expected to hit the Indian market on January 30, 2020. The facelifted SUV has borrowed inspiration from the Range Rover Velar and has subtly improved its comfort factors and performance from its predecessors. Since its inception, the Evoque has been a head-turner thanks to its incredible off-roading features. It has already sold nearly 900000 units across the globe and with the launch of the second generation, the manufacturer expects to add more fans to their already existing loyal clientele. The reincarnated model, though sports a muscular stance, has elegant lines befitting upscale riders. The SUV now features slimmer LED headlamps, stylish air intakes, redesigned tail lamps, and flush door handles complementing the smooth outline. It remains based on Premium Transverse Architecture and has grown by 20 mm in its wheelbase.
The cabin of Range Rover Evoque is made of top-notch elements for up-class riding experience. It comes with premium alternative-leather upholstery, leather-lined dashboard, conventional joystick replacing the gear shifter, and a massive 12.3-inch display in place of instrument dials. A 10.2-inch touchscreen unit with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity takes care of the infotainment facilities, and you can adjust its angle to cut out the glare. Under the hood, you get a BS-VI compliant 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol and diesel motors which also propels the new Jaguar XE introduced in December 2019. The petrol engine churns out a whopping 247 bhp and 365 Nm peak torque. An 8-speed automatic gearbox takes care of the transmission duties. It can sprint to 100 kmph in just 7.2 seconds. A mild-hybrid variant of the SUV is also available for tech-friendly riders. Finally, if you want a compact SUV with exceptional off-roading features, Range Rover Evoque is best for you.
