A smaller, greener Range Rover, the Evoque has turned the groundbreaking Land Rover LRX concept car into reality, faithfully capturing the spirit of its landmark cross-coupé design.

The Range Rover Evoque is available in two distinctive versions: the stunning coupé model, which precisely mirrors the concept car design, and the stylish 5-Door, which adopts a slightly higher rear roofline for extra practicality and greater family appeal.

Both coupé and 5-Door Evoque models stay true to the core values of the Range Rover brand, providing premium levels of craftsmanship, luxury, performance and renowned Land Rover all-terrain capability, but in a more compact package.

Dynamic handling and effortless, refined performance

The Range Rover Evoque offers a smooth and responsive turbocharged powertrain line-up.
The advanced new 240PS 2.0-litre Si4 turbocharged engine combines direct fuel injection and twin variable valve timing for exceptional drivability and fuel efficiency, delivering 0-100 kph in 7.6 seconds.*

The car can be specified with the sophisticated Adaptive Dynamics system which uses advanced MagneRide™ dampers to provide a particularly good balance of confident, nimble handling and supple, controlled ride.

As a true Range Rover, the Evoque delivers the all-weather, all-surface capability which is a hallmark of the Land Rover brand, enhanced by the latest version of the company’s signature Terrain ResponseTM system.

Packed with premium technologies

At the heart of the control system is Range Rover’s much acclaimed eight-inch high-definition touch-screen display with its crisp graphics and simple, intuitive menu structure. The display is available with the innovative dual-view technology, so that driver and passenger can view completely independent content.

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 iPods and other portable devices.

Commitment to sustainability

With its compact footprint and advanced technologies, the Range Rover Evoque reinforces Land Rover’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

The result is a Range Rover that sets new standards in the premium compact SUV segment for fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
