Available to lease at some great rates from Nationwide Vehicle Contracts, the new Evoque now offers a choice of hybrid-electric engines that are at home both in the city and the country as well as the to-be-expected cutting edge technology, and is expected to be as great an option for today's customers as the original was back in 2011.
With the instantly-recognisable design and distinctive coupé-like silhouette of the Range Rover family, the new Evoque offers outstanding interior space along with a strong and dynamic presence, framed by its new 20" wheels.
Adding in super-slim Matrix LED headlamps, flush door handles, sweeping directional indicators and optional R-Dynamic details and burnished copper accents to the mix merely makes the desired even more desirable.
Inside, uncluttered surfaces and simple lines create a luxurious, minimalist, digital cabin that is not only calm and serene but ecologically sound too (by using technical textiles that use recycled plastics such as a Kvadrat wool blend and Miko Dinamica® suedecloth, as well as Eucalyptus and Ultrafabrics™ options instead of leather.)
A longer wheelbase allows for 20mm extra rear knee room and small item stowage, as well as 10% increase in boot space (to 591 litres) – enough to fit a folded pram or set of golf clubs, with space increasing to 1,383 litres when the flexible 40:20:40 second-row seats are folded.
The new Evoque is developed for electrification, with a 48-volt mild-hybrid available at launch and a plug-in hybrid model available around 12 months afterwards. Using saved energy in the engine-mounted belt-integrated starter generator, at speeds below 11mph, the engine will shut off while the driver applies the brakes. When pulling away, the stored energy is redeployed to assist the engine under acceleration and reduce fuel consumption.
Available across the range (when specified with automatic gearbox) of 2-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, this mild hybrid option delivers CO2 emissions from as low as 149g/km and fuel economy from 50.4mpg - 150PS diesel engine with front wheel drive versions offering even lower emissions. An even more efficient plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) model and three-cylinder petrol Ingenium engine will also join the range next year.
The compact New Evoque SUV features All-Wheel Drive, a second-generation Active Driveline with Driveline Disconnect, and Terrain Response 2 – technology first found on full-size Range Rover that adjusts set-ups by detecting the surface being driven on.
Offering an exceptional command driving position already, technology has dragged the Evoque Range Rover into the digital age with a segment-first ‘ClearSight rear-view mirror’ that transforms into an HD video screen. The screen provides a wider (50-degree) field of vision and superior visibility in low light as well as offering rear view vision in crisp high definition via a camera feed at the back.
The new Range Rover Evoque is also the first in the world to feature Ground View technology, which effectively makes the bonnet invisible by projecting camera imagery onto the upper touchscreen to show the driver a 180-degree view under the front of the vehicle.
The new Range Rover Evoque is available in Evoque, Evoque S, Evoque SE, Evoque HSE and Evoque First Edition, and all except First Edition are available in R-Dynamic too.
