I reviewed the Range Rover Evoque few days ago and can confirm that it offers more than just a pretty look. Its combination of luxury, cheeky, groovy and sporty appearance makes it adorable – it turns heads in the traffic.
When it comes to safety Range Rover doesn’t compromise. In addition to normal high tech safety features, the Evoque’s Torque Vectoring by Braking feature enhances agility and safety by redirecting torque between all four wheels to counteract understeer.
Since its launch in 2011, the Range Rover Evoque has won 161 international awards for its leading-edge design, striking interior craftsmanship, in car technology and off-road capability.
With highly competitive pricing, a range of powerful and efficient engines (petrol and diesel), active driveline that enhances agility and a responsive, fuel-efficient 9-speed automatic ZF transmission, the Evoque continues to appeal with more than 310,000 sales worldwide.
It is the fastest-selling Land Rover of all time.
The Range Rover Evoque has a remarkable interior craftsmanship and features a leather upholstery cabin with splendidly laid out dashboard that comes with logically and intuitively positioned controls. These controls are easy to reach and operate.
It also features a suite of intuitive technologies such as a 380 Watt Meridian sound system, cruise control which along with the sound system can be controlled from the leather-rimmed steering wheel. USB connectivity, Bluetooth with audio streaming and dual view touch-screen are also part of the interior package.
It has a keyless entry and engine push button start. The seats are heated and electric powered. The rear seats have ample space for three adults.
The external design lines flow endlessly, offering a visually melodious look. Innovative Xenon lighting with LED signature blazes a clear trail in all conditions and adds to the vehicle’s dramatic presence and look.
It also features 18-inch alloy wheels.
The petrol engine uses the latest powertrains. Coupled with lightweight all-aluminium technology, a new nine-speed transmission is available as standard, delivering improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions.
