2020 LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER EVOQUE: A CULT FAVOURITE RE-DESIGNED FOR SUSTAINABILITY
June 21 2019,
The all-new, second-generation compact luxury SUV by Land Rover bears a potent resemblance to its ancestor, the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque (say that five times fast), but with a few innovative twists. While the overall impression parallels the original formula of the 2019 model, the re-designed 2020 Evoque has been recreated from boot to bonnet, carrying forward only one small detail, the door handles. In line with Jaguar Land Rover’s shift towards sustainability, the 2020 Evoque offers a new hybrid-electric powertrain option alongside recyclable, environmentally friendly premium materials.
The Land Rover name inspires visions of off-road, mud-splattered excursions and the new 2020 Evoque fits the bill. In typical Land Rover fashion, the 2020 Evoque boasts superior all-wheel-drive off-road prowess, with a wading depth of 23.6 inches and impressive 1340kg of towing capability. All models and trims are equipped with a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder with a 9-speed transmission and output ranging from 246hp-296hp, but with a unique twist. In line with Jaguar Land Rover’s shift towards an electric, sustainable future, all R-Dynamic trims are outfitted with a new Mild Hybrid Electric engine system making this the first MHEV to grace the Land Rover family and a highly anticipated addition.
Built for today, designed for the future. An environmentally responsible vehicle, the 2020 Evoque is 85% recyclable and reusable, with a heavy focus on responsibly sourced in-house recycled materials. Premium textile materials are on offer including eucalyptus fibre, Dinamica® eco-suede, an ecological microfibre made in Italy along with Kvadrat wool blends, a leading innovator in high-quality textiles since 1968. With the implementation of the new hybrid-electric powertrain which harvests and tactfully deploys stored energy from deceleration, the 2020 Evoque is a key player in Jaguar Land Rover’s shift towards a sustainable future.
While evocative of the 2019 model, the new 2020 Evoque has been redesigned to boast enhanced aerodynamics, courtesy of sharper contours and a belt-line with an edgier slanted incline for a modern coupe-inspired build on a highly capable compact luxury SUV. The outer windows offer passengers privacy glass while a fixed panoramic sunroof option on the First Edition filters natural light into the cabin. New dual-toned Cloud and Ebony grained leather outfit the lengthened, spacious interior with 14-way power-adjustable cooled and heated seats for optimal comfort in all seasons, with Premium LED Headlights to guide the way.
TECHNOLOGY & SAFETY
With the 2020 Evoque comes the introduction of the new innovative ClearSight Interior Rear-view Mirror and ClearSight Ground View available with the 360-degree camera. This cutting-edge tech displays a crystal-clear digital replication of obstructed views and blind spots on the rearview mirror for increased visibility and confident navigation of more challenging obstacles. Crystal-clear graphics of vehicle data presents itself on a Head-Up Display across the windscreen. When paired with Navigation Pro, Apple Carplay or Android Auto families and nomads alike can confidently plan their routes and stay connected while adventuring to the fullest.
