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.
Comfort and Practicality
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. The result is more generous
headroom than traditionally found in many sporting sedans despite the low
profile coupe roofline.
Range Rover Evoque drivers who go off-road will
be reassured to know that in addition to extremely generous ground clearance,
the car has aggressive breakover, approach and departure angles.
Dynamic Handling and Effortless, Refined Performance
engineers have developed the Range Rover Evoque to provide customers with a
polished driving experience which combines dynamic and sporty handling with
responsive, effortless performance and refinement.
This engaging and
sporting character has not been achieved at the expense of harshness or poor
comfort and refinement. In addition, available Adaptive Dynamics uses advanced
MagneRide dampers which 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.
Like a true
Range Rover, the Range Rover Evoque delivers the all-weather, all-surface
capability which is a hallmark of the brand. In common with its larger siblings,
the new model provides formidable all-terrain potential, which is enhanced by
the latest version of the company's signature Terrain Response system.
The state-of-the-art new 240 hp 2.0-liter Si4 turbocharged engine combines
direct fuel injection and twin variable valve timing for exceptional drivability
and fuel efficiency.
Serious About Sustainability
Range Rover Evoque sends a powerful message that the brand is determined to
deliver relevant new products which are not only desirable, but also
significantly more sustainable.
The new vehicle's sustainability
credentials stem from a comprehensive approach to reducing its environmental
impact throughout the product lifecycle, from development and manufacturing,
through to customer use and end-of-life recycling.
Range Rover designers and engineers have developed a
host of distinctive and innovative features, to ensure the Range Rover Evoque
stands out from the crowd.
Lighting plays a big part in the distinctive
appeal of the Range Rover Evoque. First to catch the eye is the powerful
signature graphic in the front running lights, created by innovative LED
light-blade technology. A similar graphic is repeated in the LED rear lights,
with their jewel-like 3D petal design.
Approach the car at night, and you
will also see a bold vehicle graphic alongside the front doors, illuminated by
the 'puddle lights' which shine from the mirrors.
More special touches

choreographed animated start-up sequence, while the rotary auto shifter
completes the 'greeting' as it rises silently into the driver's hand.

cabin, with a range of colors which can be chosen by the driver to suit their
mood. Select Dynamic Mode, however, and a sporting red color scheme fills the

Rover vehicle can be specified, providing an all-round vista which helps to make
every journey a special occasion.
There are three main vehicle design
themes, which have their own distinctive character and exterior treatment. Each
of the themes has a number of 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.

with unique 19-inch wheels and sparkling metallic details, an optional
20-inch wheel, 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 19- or 20-inch wheels and unique bumpers,
sills, grille and tailpipes for a more assertive, confident stance. A

detailing are included. Contrasting roof and spoiler color are available as
a personalization option.
