The British manufacturer decided to launch its new Range Rover Evoque 2020 in London. The urban SUV has been selling pretty well since it was introduced to us in 2011 as a 2012 model. Despite its amazing abilities in rough terrain, the Evoque is more of a utility vehicle designed for the hurdles of urban driving, the English capital was indeed the perfect fit!
For the second generation, designers have sought to not completely transform the silhouette of the model recognized by all. On the market since 2012, the Range Rover Evoque has aged so well that the new generation looks like the old one, with the exception of the lower front bumper and the rear portion, clearly inspired by the recent Velar.
The 2020 Range Rover Evoque has a new versatile but stiffer platform. It has been designed to accommodate a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid system, both technologies will make their entry a little later in the model cycle.
The 237-horsepower Ingenium 4-cylinder turbo engine is, for now, the base engine, while the more powerful 286-horsepower engine returns, unchanged. The same goes for the nine-speed automatic transmission. Of course, this Range Rover comes with Land Rover’s all-wheel-drive system.
The interior of the new model has been completely revised. The dashboard is now more refined than ever. It even has a touchscreen for the ventilation controls, while the main touchscreen not only integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but can also be tilted to be perfectly adjusted. The steering wheel is also new, as is the upholstery that is now available with a fabric composed of eucalyptus, wool, and recycled plastics.
The new 2020 Range Rover Evoque can be expected sometime in 2019, probably in spring or even summer. Meanwhile, the price range may be similar despite slight inflation.
