“data-reactid =” 23 “> The first Range Rover Evoque was not a big hit on this side of the Atlantic, but it was a significant car for its parent company. Land Rover had a miserable time in the recent recession, and it was this baby Range Rover, launched in 2011, which helped transform the brand’s wealth. Globally, it never sold less than 100,000 units per year throughout its life, a large number for Land Rover.
The first Evoque earned its part of the market well, why we are incredible that the new Evoque, which has just been introduced at a sophisticated launch event in London before its arrival next year, keeps close with its predecessor’s formula. This is what is described as the brand’s new Premium Transverse Architecture, which the company’s insiders have previously told us is a significant development of the D8 architecture based on the first generation model. The dimensions are barely changing – the overall length of 172.1 inches makes it only 0.6 inches longer than the current car – shoulder stretched 0.8 inches to 105.6 inches. Land Rover claims that this modest extension has been completely translated into a corresponding increase in the back seat of the legroom, which is welcome news, considering how closely the existing Evoque feels in the back. The luggage capacity has also risen slightly, to a petite 22 cubic foot with the rear seats in place, but it penetrates through a wider tailgate.

Narrower, longer elongated LED headlamps are similar to the stylish Range Rover Velar.

The new Evoque center console has grown, like door pockets and storage space for small items. In addition to the usual leather alternative, buyers can choose Square Square trim, described as a Denmark-developed “durable wool blend” combined with a “technical outfit”. An Eucalyptus cloth finish will also be offered; ” class=”JsEnabled_Op(0) JsEnabled_Bg(n) Trsdu(.42s) Bgr(nr) Bgz(cv) Maw(100%)” itemprop=”url” style=”background-image:url(https://s.yimg.com/ny/api/res/1.2/m_BBomTsSMiyR9V1qg4k9Q–~A/YXBwaWQ9aGlnaGxhbmRlcjtzbT0xO3c9ODAw/http://media.zenfs.com/en-US/homerun/car_and_driver_581/11eed0eb9917046c9c426e63c8b43cfb);” src=”https://s.yimg.com/g/images/spaceball.gif” data-reactid=”47″/>

Land Rover is particularly proud of two high-tech alternatives. A forward-facing system called ClearSight Ground View uses camcorders in the grid and mirrors to create a video liner to look forward and below, the front of the car. We are told that it was designed for both terrain vehicles and to avoid sharp edge edges. A ClearSight Back View system integrates a video monitor in the rear view mirror, which can be set when passengers or luggage block the view through the dinky rear window. The company notes that 50-degree viewpoints are wider than a standard mirror offering.
Mechanically, most are known. This Evoque still uses front strut suspension and a multilink rear axle and continues with the cross-mounted version of JLR’s 2.0-liter turbocharged ingenious gasoline four-cylinder. There are two exits offered, 246 and 296 horsepower, with brawnier one with 48-volt hybrid system. The car maker has not released performance claims for the Evoque variant yet, but has released official weight: 3935 pounds for the base car and 4075 pounds for the P300.

The power passes through a standard nine-speed automatic gearbox and is sent to each corner by a four-wheel drive system that can now completely disconnect the drive to the rear axle to help boost the economy. The Brawnier P300 model has active torque vibration; We do not know if this is the innovative Twinster system offered on the first generation of Evoque, which was closely related to the active rear axle of the now-retired Ford Focus RS. The springs are steel, but adaptive dampers will be offered as an alternative; 18-inch wheels come as standard, with upgrade options up to 21 inches. Land Rover claims 8.3 inch ground clearance and the ability to pass up to 23.6 inches of water, almost four inches more than the last Evoque.
The hybrid system is the most material technological innovation. Working with the most powerful engine, it uses a belt drive starter to generate electricity during braking. It is stored in a floor battery, with the charge used to help the engine at low speeds. Land Rover has not shown how much contribution the electrical side of the drive can do, but we suspect it will be modest. As a comparison, the Mercedes-Benz like hybrid 48-volt system can only add only 14 horsepower.
The new Evoque will first be shown at the Chicago car show in February and will be sold later this year. We update this story with additional information, including pricing, as soon as it is available.
