Land Rover unveils 2019 Range Rover Evoque

Range Rover представила новый кроссовер Evoque

For now, Australian customers can get into a dealership and place their order on the new model as we speak. There's more familiarity than not under the hood as well, with one noteworthy addition. The Evoque P250 gets 246 horsepower, while the P300 sees the turbo-four goosed to 296 horsepower. The Evoque will continue to be available with a nine-speed automatic gearbox. The mild hybrid powertrain is a first for Land Rover and works by harvesting energy normally lost during deceleration. When pulling away, the stored energy is redeployed to assist the engine under acceleration and reduce fuel consumption. This includes a plug-in hybrid version, due late in 2019, which pairs a new three-cylinder Ingenium 1.5-litre petrol engine with an electric motor.

Its footprint may be bigger, but the new Evoque has been given a haircut. Apparently, only the door hinges are carried over from the previous model.

Underneath the skin, the Evoque should ride on an updated version of the current model's D8 platform, which also serves as the basis of the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Jaguar E-Pace. However, it offers 20 mm more kneeroom in the rear, thanks to the 21 mm longer wheelbase (2,681 mm).

Land Rover has also revealed that the new architecture has been created to incorporate the use of hybrid technology.

The Evoque's approach and departure angles are now 25 (+1.8) and 30.6 (-2.4) degrees respectively, while its ground clearance (212mm, +1mm) and wading depth (600mm, +100mm) have improved. The small SUV hits a price-point that strikes more mass-market appeal than other Range Rover models, while its design brings Range Rover appeal. We used it to line up the vehicle on a ramp that led to a swimming pool. If rear visibility is compromised by passengers or bulky items, the driver can flip a switch on the underside of the mirror and a camera feed from the top of the auto displays what is behind the vehicle in crisp high definition. This technology also delivers clearer visibility in low light conditions.

With restaurants that are eligible, Assistant starts off by asking you about the number of pax, which is limited to 10 now . It will only work in a few cities and the people getting it will only be able to book restaurants with it right now.

The new Evoque launches with innovations such as ClearSight Ground View and ClearSight Rear View. The design reminds the Velar's, but simpler. Land Rover promises fab interior fittings including leather hides, or optionally available, premium cloth seats made from recycled fabric. It displays a 180-degree camera view of the front underside of the vehicle onto the upper screen of the Touch Pro Duo 10-inch dual HD touchscreen infotainment system.

Inside, you will find two high-definition touchscreens on the centre console.

South Africans don't have much of a wait, with the first units scheduled to reach our shores in early 2019, and Land Rover has already opened the local configurator, although pricing has yet to be announced.

Take a look at SA's "Automotive Masterplan" with a clear outline of providing more locally-built cars and the allocation of more jobs.

2020 Evoque looks more aggressive.
