This is the 5-Door version of the all-new Range Rover Evoque which will make its global public debut at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show on 17th November 2010.
With family practicality, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque joins the coupé model to create a line-up that will transform the premium compact SUV segment.
Like the coupé, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque remains faithful to the spirit of the Land Rover LRX concept car, offering an innovative new interpretation of the original cross-coupé design.
The 5-Door Evoque also stays true to the core values of the Range Rover brand, providing a high standard of craftsmanship, luxury, performance and renowned Land Rover all-terrain capability, but in a more compact package.
Commitment to sustainability
The Range Rover Evoque reinforces Land Rover’s commitment to environmental sustainability. The Evoque is positioned as the smallest, lightest, most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever.
The new car’s greener credentials stem from a comprehensive approach to reducing its environmental impact throughout the product lifecycle, from development and manufacturing, through to customer use and end-of-life recycling.
While the Evoque offers the premium luxury and performance customers expect from a Range Rover, it also demonstrates levels of efficiency and responsible design that make it one of the most sustainable cars in its class.
Key product innovations that drive its greener performance include:
- Compact size – at 4350 mm, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque is 430 mm shorter than a Range Rover Sport
- Lightweight technologies – advanced materials used throughout the body and chassis
- Efficient powertrain – state-of-the-art petrol and diesel engines, with high-efficiency features such as direct injection and stop-start
- Low CO2 technologies – including electric power-assisted steering (EPAS), smart regenerative charging and optimised transmissions
- Availability of front-wheel-drive – reducing weight and minimising driveline losses
- Recycling and re-use – maximising use of sustainable and recycled materials, plus optimising end-of-life recyclability
The result is a Range Rover that sets new standards in the premium compact SUV segment for fuel economy and CO2 emissions, with the two-wheel-drive diesel 5-Door model capable of an exceptional sub 135g/km CO2.
Three design themes
The 5-Door Range Rover Evoque follows the coupé model by offering customers the choice of three main vehicle design themes, each with its own distinctive character, exterior treatment and carefully co-ordinated interior package.
‘Pure’combines the stunning concept-car exterior with a stylish, clean interior in neutral colours. Soft-touch wrapped materials on the major surfaces contrast with the metal brushed aluminium trim.
‘Prestige’ is theultimate in Range Rover luxury, combining a bespoke exterior that includes unique, 19-inch wheels and sparkling metallic details with an interior that is almost entirely leather-wrapped.
‘Dynamic’ brings a bolder exterior with 20-inch wheels and unique bumpers, sills, grille and tailpipes for a more assertive, confident stance. Contrasting roof and spoiler colours are available, while the premium sports interior offers sports seats with splashes of bright contrast colour.
Both coupé and 5-Door models of the Range Rover Evoque will be manufactured at Land Rover’s multi award-winning Halewood plant in Merseyside, UK. The car will go on sale in more than 160 markets worldwide from summer 2011. Prices will start from £30,000/ 35,000E.Published 12 November 2010
