In a simple ceremony, Coventry Motors Corporation, Jaguar Land Rover’s official Philippine distributor,launched the all-new Range Rover Evoque, to augment its SUV lineup. The Evoque actually grew in dimension compared to the older model, and has an array of new performance features. More importantly, it also boasts of a new hybrid powerplant.
The New Evoque puts the SUV bar a tad higher. It’s bigger than the previous model, with big 20in tires complimenting the silhouette, which is more akin to a coupe rather than an SUV. The retracting door handles gives it both futuristic and practical use. The Evoque is very pleasing to look at.
The new AWD Evoque works under Land Rover’s “Premium Transverse Architecture,” a new design platform that will accept different Hybrid platforms.
For the Philippine market, engine options are the following:
2.0-liter turbodiesel engine with 178hp and 430Nm
2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline with 247hp and 365Nm
2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline mild hybrid setup with 296hp and 400Nm
The only transmission available is the excellent 9-speed automatic.
Inside, the simplistic interior arrangement is pleasing to the eye. No cluttered knobs and dials; just a few flat buttons that will serve an array of functions.
The leather seats betray the added legroom, but provide more comfort. Impeccable sounds emanate from a 10-Speaker Meridian sound system with power coming from a large 10in touchscreen infotainment system at the middle of the dash.
New technology that comes with the new Evoque are: Terrain Response technology, Park Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Assist, a rear traffic, Lane Departure Warning system, plus a Driver Condition Monitor.
