Since its launch in 2011, the Range Rover Evoque has sold over 33,000 models in the UK, and has received over 129 global awards. The Evoque combines breathtaking contemporary design with added practicality and extraordinary versatility. The new 2014 model improves on this success with the debut of the world’s first 9-speed automatic transmission in a passenger car, offering greater fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
The new Range Rover Evoque offers new customisation options, including new styles of alloy wheels and new interior colours. The Evoque is available in a range of 12 paint colours and 3 contrasting roof colours for that added personal touch.
One of the most exciting new changes is the world’s first 9-speed automatic transmission for a passenger car as a replacement of the 6-speed automatic used since launch. The 9 speed transmission is one of the most efficient and technically advanced transmissions ever used in a production vehicle. The increase in gear ratios allows for improved fuel economy and a reduction in CO2 emissions. It also allows for improved response during acceleration, and the lower engine revs improve comfort and reduce noise when cruising at high speeds. This makes the Range Rover Evoque nimble and responsive to drive at all speeds, despite being a larger vehicle.
Stop and Start technology is standard across the Evoque range, which switches the engine off and on seamlessly to save fuel when you’re stopped in traffic. 4WD is also standard, using an innovative system which continuously varies the front and rear torque using an electronically controlled coupling to deliver optimum grip and balance for the current driving conditions.
Parking will never be an issue again – the Evoque has the option of parking assistance systems, both for parallel and perpendicular parking. This is perfect for driving in urban environments where space can be at a premium, with parking assistance in spaces up to 1.2 times the car length. Additional comfort is offered with Climate Front Seats for both heating and cooling with luxurious new perforated Oxford leather, and the option of front and rear heated seats.
The new 2014 Evoque is available with a range of advanced safety features, such as a Blind Spot Monitor with Closing Vehicle Sensing for when driving at high speeds, which is enhanced with Reverse Traffic Detection to inform the driver of vehicles approaching during reverse manoeuvres. Other features include Wade Sensing, when crossing fords or flooded roads, Traffic Sign recognition and a Lane Departure Warning.
Security is also improved with the Land Rover InControl Remote and Land Rover InControl Secure options, available for the first time for Range Rover Evoque. Owners can remain in touch with their Land Rover using the Land Rover InControl Smartphone App, allowing the driver to check their fuel level, find their car in a crowded car-park and download their journeys for vehicle expenses. An SOS Emergency Call can be made manually from within the vehicle, or is generated automatically in the event of an accident – with the car’s GPS location used if the emergency response team cannot make contact with the vehicle’s occupants.
