Take a look at the two Autoexpress and the Top Gear Videos below to see what a polished all-rounder the Evoque is!
Here we have a truly super Range Rover Evoque Dynamic Diesel Auto 5 Door finished in the fabulous extra cost Zanzibar Metallic with Black Hide. Its travelled just 27,550 miles from new. (The Camera doesn’t do the Colour justice, Its one you need to see in the Metal)
It has a full Land Rover Service History visiting supplying main dealer workshop @10,839, 17,387 and 24,636 miles In March of this year. It has a 5 year service pack too so the next two services are pre-paid.
Its full fat four-wheel-drive system on the Dynamic model (The eD4 model is front wheel drive only if you didn’t know) but with a trick transmission which disconnects drive to the rear wheels when cruising to help reduce fuel consumption. which is more than reasonable for a mid size 4 wheel drive performance SUV and a lot more economical than its big brothers the Range Rover Sport and Range Rover!
The Dynamic specification is top of the range Including Touch Screen Sat Nav, Panoramic Roof, Dual Climate Control, Heated Electrically Operated Front Seats with 3 Position Drivers Memory, Bluetooth, Cruise Control, Parking Sensors (with Rear View Camera), Heated Front Screen, Electric Tailgate, Headlamp Washers, Meridian Sound System, Touch Screen Multifunction Display, Multifunction Steering Wheel and Electric Mirrors and Keyless Entry. An ipod and USB connector are both fitted. It also has the optional Park Assist and Black Pack too with 20″ Alloy Wheels. It also features Landrovers acclaimed Electronic Terrain Response System of course!
Visitors to the Frankfurt Motor Show witnessed the debut of the 2014 Range Rover Evoque, which features several modifications, of which the most significant is the use of a new nine-speed automatic gearbox. The nine-speed gearbox that ZF supplied was first seen earlier in the year at the Geneva Motor Show as a prototype. Production has already begun for this gearbox.
It will be available as standard for the Land Rover-made Evoque’s one petrol and two diesel engines. Land Rover said that its fuel economy rating is better by up to 11.4% while its CO2 emissions is lower by up to 9.5% in some models. The most frugal – the front-wheel-drive, 148bhp 2.2-litre diesel version — returns 57.6mpg when combined and has CO2 emissions of 129g/km.
Range Rover also gave the 2014 Evoque an Active Driveline ‘on demand’ four-wheel drive system. This new feature is offered as an option. For improved fuel economy, the all-wheel-drive Evoques makes a switch to front-drive mode during steady driving conditions above 22mph.
If the conditions require it, the system will automatically go back to four-wheel drive in 300 milliseconds. Another interesting feature in Active Driveline is Active Torque Biasing that comes with an electronic differential (called e-Diff) to split torque between the rear wheels, boosting traction and stability.
The four-wheel drive system also now features Torque Vectoring by Braking, which is standard as opposed to being part of the Active Driveline option. Because of this feature, the vehicle becomes more agile and safe as torque is split among the four wheels.
As a result, it prevents understeer. The revised Evoque comes with different parking assist, lane departure and traffic sign recognition systems, as well as a wade sensor. The exterior received slight detail modifications, including new badges and new alloy wheel options. The automaker is also offering additional color options for the interior.
Inspired by the LRX concept car, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque garnered a lot of positive reviews when it was announced for its indelible take on previous Range Rover designs. These cues can be seen in the Evoque’s luxurious interior, unbeatable all-terrain capability, and dedicated engineering team who worked wonders in bringing these values to life. Gerry McGovern Land Rover’s Design Director said that by combining new technology with old sensibilities, they’re bringing new life to the Range Rover. He also said that the exterior changes they’ve developed have given the Range Rover a powerful presence and a streamlined stance.
The wheels have been moved to the four corners to broaden its stance and the Evoque is more streamlined due to the removal of the usual visual overhangs you would expect from the vehicle’s front and rear. They have also added wider wheel arches to drop the vehicle’s stance.
Impeccably crafted luxury interior -As you would expect from a Range Rover, the interior is exciting, sumptuous and comes with a sharp cabin with excellent trimmings and premium embossing. McGovern talked about the clear line between the instrument panel and the central console and the fact that these bold lines are a major aspect of the classic Range Rover design.
What the magazines say!
When the Evoque was launched in 2011, it caused a major stir in the crossover class, and even after six years in dealers and thousands of cars sold, its concept car looks still manage to turn heads. The slab sides and small windows mean it appears sportier than the Q3, even though it’s taller, while the black window pillars and clamshell bonnet are a modern update to the traditional Range Rover look.
The ride and handling people have pulled off something a bit special here. The Evoque might be a Rangie, but there’s nothing wallowy about the way it corners. It attacks windy roads like an excited hot hatch, but still rides with the class of its big brother. This is a very well-rounded machine, and although purists might think it’s some fancy bit of chintz, it’s still a grafter when the road turns brown. Or white. Or yellow. We’ve driven the Evoque to the Scottish Highlands, across an Icelandic glacier and over mammoth dunes in Dubai. And it didn’t slip up once. Then we took it to Las Vegas, where it cruised quietly around the neon jungle and drew a bigger crowd than Siegfried and Roy.
Get out a clear road, and it’s time to push down and twist the central gear selector to Sport mode. That’s when the Evoque becomes really responsive. Any slight change in pressure to the accelerator pedal causes the revs to instantly rise and fall.
Combine this with the steering-mounted paddleshifters and it becomes a really engaging driving experience as you speed from corner to corner. The broad spread of power ensures you don’t have to constantly change gear to be ready to overtake or build speed after exiting a tight corner.
The steering is quick to provide directional changes and it is easy to plot a line through a corner. You can’t feel what the front wheels are doing but there is a lot of grip, not least because of the four-wheel drive.
For those of a more relaxed disposition, it will be heartening to hear that the sharp handling has not compromised ride quality. It remains admirably smooth on bumpy and potholed roads and in normal drive mode it quietly gets on with the business of ensuring you are in the right gear to maximise fuel efficiency.
As you would expect of a premium brand, sitting inside the Evoque is a sumptuous place to be. The driver does have a lot of controls to play with especially on the steering wheel (cruise control, telephone, audio and car set-up info plus the paddle-shifters)
