Having pioneered the luxury compact SUV market, now with more than 217 international awards, the new Range Rover Evoque, available in 127 countries, is a sophisticated evolution of the original. Combining unrivalled Range Rover heritage with cutting-edge technology - designed, engineered and manufactured in Britain - it meets the needs of today's customers.
Every bit a Range Rover, the compact SUV combines all-terrain capability with all-weather assurance. New Evoque features All-Wheel Drive, as well as a second-generation Active Driveline with Driveline Disconnect to enhance efficiency and Adaptive Dynamics to deliver the optimum balance of comfort and agility. Terrain Response 2 - technology first found on full-size Range Rover - automatically detects the surface being driven on a adjusts the set-up accordingly, while Evoque can now wade through water up to 600mm (previously 500mm).
The new Evoque will be available from launch with a 48-volt mild-hybrid electric vehicle powertrain that harvests energy normally lost during deceleration and stores it in the underfloor battery. At speeds below 17km/h (11mph), while under braking, the engine will shut off to minimise emissions. This technology combines to reduce fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions, now as low as 50.4mpg (5.6l/100km) and CO2 emissions of 149g/km (NEDC Equivalent).
When the driver accelerates, the stored energy is redeployed to assist the engine under acceleration, reducing fuel consumption and making the new Evoque an ideal SUV for driving in congested, stop-start city traffic. This mild hybrid powertrain will be joined by a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle model in 2019.
Customers can also choose between six Ingenium four-cylinder powertrains, with three petrol and diesel variants, respectively. The most efficient of these is the 150PS diesel (FWD) with emissions of 143g/km (NEDC Equivalent) and 5.4l/100km (52.3mpg) while, at the other end of the performance scale, there is a 300PS AWD petrol model with 400Nm of torque, emissions of 186g/km (NEDC Equivalent) and 8.1l/100km (34.4mpg).
