Range Rover Evoque 5-Door: Coupe Style With Enhanced Versatility

(continued from the previous page)

Impeccably Crafted Luxury Interior

Beneath its dramatic exterior, the five-door Range Rover Evoque provides customers with an impeccably crafted luxury cabin, with the same premium quality materials and elegant design expected from a Range Rover interior.

The Range Rover Evoque allows customers to specify a lavishly appointed cabin with soft, premium leather providing a luxurious finish to almost every surface of the instrument panel, doors and seats, with beautifully tailored twin-needle stitching.

In bold contrast to the supple feel of natural hides, authentic metal finishes provide a series of striking highlights. Cool to the touch and exquisitely crafted, the metal finishes are a tactile and visual reminder of the superior interior quality.

The instrument cluster, housed under a compact curved binnacle, adds to the sporty, premium feel of the interior. The twin dials have an attractive three dimensional form with illuminated chaplets and needles, and are set deep in sport circular housings finished with bright chrome rims.

Total Comfort and Versatility

Measuring 1.18 inches (30 mm) taller than the coupe model, the five-door Range Rover Evoque adds space and versatility to the luxurious cabin. Rear seat passengers benefit from over 1.97 inches (50 mm) more shoulder room, along with generous headroom, which compares very favorably to traditional sporting sedans.

A full-sized glass panoramic roof enhances the sensation of space and comfort by filling the interior with natural light, and offers greater headroom for all occupants.

The rear seats, with seat belts and head restraints for three passengers, have 60/40 folding rear seats and are equipped with LATCH child seat mounts. When required, luggage capacity can be expanded to a substantial 51 cubic ft (1445 liters).

The driver adopts a lower seating position than in one of the larger Range Rover models offering a more sporting feel but retaining the important Command Driving Position.

Refined Performance

Land Rover engineers have developed the five-door Range Rover Evoque to provide customers with a polished driving experience combining dynamic and sporty handling with responsive, effortless performance and refinement.

The car can be specified with the sophisticated Adaptive Dynamics system, which uses advanced MagneRide dampers to provide an enhanced balance of confident, nimble handling with a supple, controlled ride. The suspension delivers even tighter body control with flatter handling and sharper responses.

As expected in a Range Rover, the five-door Range Rover Evoque delivers all-weather, multi-terrain capability. In common with its larger siblings, the new model provides formidable multi-terrain potential, which is enhanced by the latest version of the company's signature Terrain Response system.

Drivers who take their Range Rover Evoque off-road will be reassured to know that, in addition to generous ground clearance, the car has aggressive breakover and departure angles.

The five-door Range Rover Evoque shares its smooth and responsive turbocharged powertrain with the Coupe model. The advanced new 240 hp 2.0-liter Si4 turbocharged engine combines direct fuel injection and twin variable valve timing for drivability and fuel efficiency, and an athletic 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds.

Three Different Equipment Levels

The five-door Range Rover Evoque follows the coupe model by offering customers the choice of three main vehicle design themes, each with its own distinctive character, exterior treatment and carefully coordinated interior packages. The three vehicle design themes are:

  • Pure - combining the stunning concept-car exterior with stylish, clean interiors in neutral colors to highlight the pure, simple forms of the cabin architecture. Soft-touch, wrapped materials on the major surfaces contrast with the real-metal brushed aluminum trim.
  • Prestige - ultimate Range Rover luxury, combining a bespoke exterior with unique, standard 19-inch wheels, plus an optional 20-inch wheel, and sparkling metallic details with an indulgent interior which is almost entirely leather wrapped. Luxurious duo-tone color schemes, with premium leather, twin-needle stitching and real wood and metal finishes.
  • Dynamic - bold exterior with available 20-inch wheels and unique bumpers, sills, grille and tailpipes for a more assertive, confident stance. A premium sports interior with perforated leather seats and unique sports detailing are included. Contrasting roof and spoiler colors are available as a personalization option.

Options and Accessories

From the driver's viewpoint, the Range Rover Evoque is distinguished by a carefully conceived system of controls and displays which combines a stylish, uncluttered layout, state-of-the-art functionality and ease-of-use.

At the heart of the control system is the Range Rover brand's 8-inch (203 mm) high-definition touch-screen display with its crisp graphics and simple, intuitive menu structure.

Tech-savvy customers get the connectivity they demand with a comprehensive package that includes Bluetooth hands-free mobile phone use and audio streaming, plus a range of USB and auxiliary inputs for iPod and other portable devices.

The Range Rover Evoque is the first Range Rover to offer breathtaking new sound systems developed in partnership with the high-end audio specialists Meridian. The premium Meridian offering is an 825W 17-speaker system which delivers the ultimate in surround sound performance.

Other features available to five-door Range Rover Evoque customers include:

  • Surround Camera System with five digital cameras, including a reversing system
  • Hard drive navigation system
  • Sirius tuners and HD Digital Radio tuners in addition to AM/FM
  • Rear seat entertainment package, with 8-inch (203 mm) video screens, digital wireless headphones and touch screen remote control
  • Passive keyless entry system
  • Powered tailgate
  • Xenon adaptive headlamps with auto headlamp dipping
  • Heated windshield, front seats and steering wheel
