The first generation of Land Rover Range Rover Evoque felt a bit inexpensive. Of course, was cheap according to Range Rover pricing standards, but the general compilation of the compact SUV model did not know typical snuff. It seems to change, and drastically, with the introduction of the 2020 Range Rover Evoque.
A quick look at 2020 Evoque is all you need to see much inspiration from other, larger Range Rovers – namely the fast Velar. The similarity starts up in front, where thinner (and standard) LED headlights give Evoque look in line with RangeRover’s latest. The rear end is where most of the resemblance lies, although it lacks the prominent tuchus by Velar in favor of something that looks a little shortened.
I’m especially a fan of optional copper accents found on one of the models in the gallery below. Finally, a sport-out that can match the phone, you will completely replace one year when the new one comes out.
While many new vehicles are happy to grow in all directions over their ancestors, Evoque did not “t.” It’s almost as big as it was before, saving for an extra 0.8 inch wheelbase, which benefits both rear legroom and load capacity .
The velvet’s new style also improves its off-road capacity. While the old Evoque can only wade through 1
9.7 inches of water, the 2020 Evoque increases that figure to 23.6 inches.
The interior of Evoque has been carefully recast and makes it almost as premium as the interior in larger areas. In an animal-friendly touch, Evoque offers a range of non-leather furnishings, including wool, synthetic suede and eucalyptus-based textile. There are storage options throughout the interior, including a smart backside behind the climate control screen. Funny Fact: The door panels can now accommodate 1.5-liter water bottles.
While Europe and other markets will get an Evoque with a diesel engine, it’s just a gasoline deal in the United States. That said, we still get two power units, one of which is electrified.
The Baspowertrain is a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 gas engine, good for 246 horsepower and 269 pound feet with torque coupled to a nine-speed automatic and standard four-wheel drive that can remove the rear axle to improve efficiency. The mild hybrid uses the same engine and gearbox, but its output rises to 296 horsepower and 295 pound-torque torque.
Of course, the light hybrid device means not only having more power. It can also improve efficiency, partly by turning off the engine below 11 mph when the driver uses the brakes. Just adding 140 pounds to the car, it should be more efficient than the gas engine alone. Fortunately, the mild hybrid variant does not make any changes in the car’s internal capacity, including the cargo area.
2020 Evoque has lots of garden gear technology we see in almost every new car these days, but it also has some smart things worth mentioning first.
There are three interesting pieces of technology unique to Evoque. It now has a rear-view mirror that can be converted into an HD monitor with a switch, allowing a driver to use the rear camera to look behind the vehicle if the cab is filled on the roof. There is also a new camera that shows the driver the view directly under the front, which will help in both city parking maneuvers (for belt bending) and off-roading.
Finally, the new Smart Settings system uses AI algorithms to learn a driver’s settings and make sure the car is set correctly (eg seat, music, climate control) when a driver bumps in.
For more standard fare, Evoque can be equipped with LandRovers InControl Touch Pro Duo Infotainment System. This puts two 10-inch screens on the center stack, one to cover traditional infotainment data and a second, lower screen to cover the climate system. The measurement cluster is replaced with a 12.3-inch screen, and just above is a full color main screen. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are included.
Other in the cabin there is a rear seat tablet holder with ports for charging. There is an optional 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices and six USB ports are spread around the interior. It is also the first Land Rover to offer wireless software updates.
On the security front, it’s all standard. Land Rover’s range of safety equipment includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, a driver’s seat and lane-keep assist.
2020 Range Rover Evoque will conduct his American debut at the Chicago Auto Show in February. Pricing and packaging information will be made available closer to that time.
