Since 2011, the compact SUV market has grown significantly and the Range Rover Evoque has consistently been near the top of the segment due to its continued quality and performance.
But with the new model, Land Rover is looking to take the Evoque’s reputation a step further by enhancing the equipment on-board and the evolving the exterior design.
Here we take a brief look at the 2019 Evoque and see what it has to offer…
What powertrains are available?
The launch range of engines on the Evoque are all based on 2.0-litre Ingenium four-cylinder units – whether they be petrol or diesel. Apart from the entry-level diesel, all the engines come with an electrical mild-hybrid system to help improve efficiency and reduce emissions. The base level D150 develops 148bhp and can get the Evoque up to 60mph from standstill in 9.9 seconds.
For the best performance, customers will need to go for the petrol P300 unit, which develops 296bhp and can get the Evoque from 0-60mph in just 6.3 seconds. But if you’re after efficiency, it’s worth checking out the diesel engines, which can all achieve in excess of 40mpg. Land Rover will be providing the Evoque with plug-in hybrid and electric powertrains further down the model’s timeline.
How much kit do I get?
It’s safe to say you get a lot of gear with the entry level Evoque – proving how much value for money it has. As standard it comes with automatic LED headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, two-zone climate control, fabric upholstery, folding rear seats, leather steering wheel, Land Rover’s Terrain Response 2 system, a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth, a rear camera and cruise control with speed limiter.
When moving up through S, SE and HSE, the Evoque mainly gains cosmetic upgrades in the form of larger alloys, leather upholstery and exterior detailing. But on some Land Rover adds an additional central touchscreen as part of the Touch Pro Duo setup, a digital instrument display, extra driver assists and upgraded interior comfort features, such as electrically controlled seats and the ClearSight rear view mirror that’s actually a camera feed of the view behind you.See Available Range Rover Evoque deals
