2019 Range Rover Evoque revealed
- The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has officially entered its second-generation, and on first glance, it looks like a baby Velar with its sleek lights and flush door handles.
- Based on Land Rover’s new Premium Transverse Architecture, the new Evoque manages to offer more rear legroom and additional boot space while keeping almost the same footprint as its predecessor.
- The 2019 Evoque sports the first ever mild-hybrid system on a Land Rover. This 48V system harvests energy lost during deceleration and stores it in the under-floor battery. At speeds below 17 km/h, this energy is used to assist the engine under acceleration.
- The new SUV will be powered by two engines at launch, each offered in three states of tune. The 2.0-litre petrol makes 197 bhp, 247 bhp or 296 bhp, while the 2.0-litre diesel generates 147 bhp, 178 bhp or 237 bhp. A new 9-speed torque converter gearbox comes standard on all but the base diesel.
- The cabin of the new Evoque has been updated with the dual-screen Touch Pro Duo system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The overall design, yet again, is very similar to the Velar, which is a good thing since it looks simplistic and posh.
