Three years later, the Range Rover Evoque arrives, in three and five doors.
It was in 2008 that the lines of the LRX concept were discovered at the Detroit show. At the time, the model was a bold alternative to the classic Range Rover and profoundly changed the stylistic signature of the Land Rover brand.
Aesthetically, the basics of the original design that made this model a great tool for conquest are still in effect today.
A bet more than raised, with an Evoque who quickly emerged as a serious competitor, or even as the leader in the premium SUV market, neck and neck with the models offered by BMW, Audi and Mercedes.
The brand has thought of everything and it is a real pleasure to have in hand a high-end vehicle that retains its DNA fighter. Even if buyers apparently only operate 10% of its potential (especially in the city), the possibilities remain exceptional.
The Range Rover Evoque has a 500-millimeter fording capacity and a generous 215 millimeter front clearance. Its various electronic systems make it possible to control stability, downhill speed and grip, but also to adapt to the terrain. The interior is more modern.
The all-touch takes over with a multimedia screen and another dedicated to climate control. The big news comes from the interior mirror, which can retransmit the images of a camera placed above the rear window: it is much more than a gadget because the rear window is very small, but the rendering is incredible.
A rechargeable hybrid version with a three-cylinder petrol, that’s enough to outdo the competition. Aesthetically, the basics of the original design that made this model a great tool for conquest are still in effect today. Obviously, some new things are added to the design, like the black strip between the lights, and especially the door handles concealed in the bodywork. So no, it’s not a Velar in smaller.
