Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Land Rover has announced that new Range Rover Evoque prices in the UK will start from £27,955 for the eD4 Pure 5-door 6 Speed manual 2WD model.

The Range Rover Evoque 4WD equivalent is priced at £28,705, while the top-of-the-range Si4 6 Speed automatic Dynamic coupé with LUX pack is available for £44,320.

The Range Rover Evoque will be offered in both 5-door and Coupé forms and will go on-sale from September 2011. A smooth and refined powertrain line-up is available with a choice of state-of-the-art diesel or petrol engines.

The updated 2.2-liter turbodiesel has 150PS or 190PS derivatives. The 2WD (on-sale early 2012) Coupé version combined with the 150 PS 2.2-litre engine is set to achieve sub 130g/km CO2.

The new 240PS 2.0-liter Si4 petrol engine combines direct fuel injection, turbocharging  and twin variable valve timing for exceptional driveability and fuel-efficiency and delivers 0-60mph in 7.1 seconds.

In place of a traditional trim hierarchy, customers can choose from three distinct design themes, which include many features as standard. A wide range of personalization opportunities are also available, allowing customers to fully tailor the Evoque to individual tastes and requirements.

Options available include 12 exterior colors, three contrasting roof treatments, seven alloy wheel designs, 16 contrasting interiors and a full sized, fixed, panoramic glass roof.

Pure

The Range Rover Evoque Pure is based on the Land Rover LRX concept exhibited at the Detroit Auto Show in January, 2008. On the outside it is distinguished by the high-gloss black detailing across the tailgate and along the waistline, with a dark 'Atlas' finish to the grille and eye-catching side fender blades and, on the Coupé, bonnet louvres. As standard, Pure models come with 18-inch Sparkle Silver alloy wheels.

Inside, the seats are finished in grain leather, and satin brushed aluminum is used for the centre console trim. Highlights of the standard equipment on board include heated front seats, an 8-inch high-resolution touch screen display, climate control air conditioning, an 11-speaker Meridian audio system with subwoofer, push-button start, Bluetooth for mobile phone connection and audio streaming, twin USB ports, which support portable audio connectivity and cruise control.

The handling and safety systems include Hill Launch Assist, rear parking sensors and, on 4WD versions, Terrain Response to set up the vehicle for different off-road environments, and Hill Descent Control.

Prestige
Luxury informs every element of the Evoque Prestige models, from the exterior bright 'Atlas' detailing and 19-inch Diamond Turned alloy wheels, to the fine Oxford full leather interior in a selection of warm and inviting colour schemes with real wood finishers, tailored carpet mats and chrome tread plates. Metallic paint is also provided as standard and Prestige models benefit from xenon headlamps with signature LED lighting and front fog lamps.

Similarly, the equipment specification delivers the highest quality features, with an HDD satellite navigation system with dynamic route guidance and voice control option. It also displays 4WD performance information and provides an audio server for storing uncompressed digital music files. There is also a rear camera, front parking sensors and automatic headlamps and windscreen wipers.

Dynamic
The Dynamic theme adds a real sporting presence to Evoque with the addition of deeper body colour sills and bumpers, and black-finished mirrors, grille and side fender blades that are all exclusive to the design theme. Add the 20-inch Sparkle Silver alloys to the mix and there is no mistaking that the Evoque Dynamic means business.

Inside the cabin detailed touches reinforce the theme with aluminum pedal covers, a textured metal finish to the centre console and perforated leather around the steering wheel and (manual) gearshift. The striking exterior of the Dynamic is complemented by a range of bold interior color schemes.

Dynamic models also come with Adaptive Dynamics featuring MagnaRide as standard for and an even sharper ride and handling. Adaptive Dynamics is also available as an option for Prestige SD4 models at a cost of £1150.

•  HDD premium navigation system
