The Smallest, Lightest, Most Fuel Efficient Range Rover

Source: Land Rover | Published: Wed Sep 22, 2010

(continued from the previous page)

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 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

Land Rover 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

The 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.

Distinctively Range Rover Evoque

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 greet you when you enter the car. The interior displays come to life with a choreographed animated start-up sequence, while the rotary auto shifter completes the 'greeting' as it rises silently into the driver's hand.

LED ambient lighting provides sophisticated and precise illumination within the 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 interior as well as in the instrument dials and cluster display.

To complete the range of features, the first panoramic roof ever fitted to a Range 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.
  • Prestige - ultimate Range Rover luxury, combining a bespoke exterior 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 premium sports interior with perforated leather seats and unique sports detailing are included. Contrasting roof and spoiler color are available as a personalization option.

Packed with Premium Technologies

The Range Rover Evoque benefits from the same comprehensive selection of the latest technologies as the larger Range Rover models, in terms of controls, connectivity, comfort and convenience for all occupants.

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 touchscreen 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 Range Rover Evoque customers include:

  • Surround Camera System with five digital cameras, including a reversing system
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Hard drive navigation system
  • FM/AM/Sirius tuners, with single disc CD player with the ability to rip CDs to the hard drive
  • Rear seat entertainment package, with 8-inch(203.2 mm) video screens, digital wireless headphones and touch screen remote control
  • Keyless entry system
  • Powered tailgate
  • Adaptive headlamps with auto headlamp dipping
  • Heated windscreen, front seats and steering wheel

Sold in 160 Markets Worldwide From Fall 2011

The Range Rover Evoque will be manufactured in the multi-award winning plant in Halewood, UK. The car has been engineered for all global markets, and will go on sale in over 160 countries worldwide from Fall 2011.
