Debuted the second generation Land Rover Evoque
Land Rover Evoque – version 2.0: the Debut
Say Hello to the Range Rover Evoque is the second generation. How time flies, it seems, the first model that changed everything for Land Rover only entered the top grossing ranks a respectable compact SUV, but changing it in a hurry new… What will she bring? The sequel to happy tales or disappointment? We’ll know in a year or two, and until you get acquainted with the updated Evoque, version 2.0. Welcome!
The exterior of the new Land Rover Evoque
The first thing that is clearly evident – despite the age difference, the crossovers are obvious similarities, but there are obvious differences.
In designing the new Evoque 2019 model year Land Rover refused such a favorite sports design the current model, but retained the same basis that we first met in 2011. If viewed from the side, the profile of the new Evoque is almost identical to the original. It’s even good.
Despite the fact that the shape of the Evoque has not changed much, it is not identical to the model of the second generation. Front Land Rover took obvious design inspiration from my recent new middle class – Velar. It includes the same slim lights and narrow front radiator fallcreek. If you look closely, you can also recognize other elements from his older brother, for example, the updated model is distinguished by front air intakes are identical. Unification is certainly a good idea, so now do all the car brands, but to distinguish the two models on the road from far away will not be easy. Plus for owners of less prestigious Evoque and minus for purchased Velar.
The same can be said about the back panel the Evoque the second generation. The feed is also very similar to “Velar” thanks to the slim taillights. However, differences are clearly visible due to the shorter rear overhang.
From the side the Evoque remains faithful to its early versions like proportions. In General, the concept of appearance has changed little, rather just explained the nuances in a modern way.
Technical specifications Evoque 2019
Surprisingly, the Evoque uses a 2.0 is not a new platform from scratch, instead it will base the D8 architecture from the current model. As a result, the range of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines Ingenium remains the same. Power 2.0-liter diesel engines ranging from 148 to 237 HP and petrol engines – from 237 to 296 HP At the drivetrain still more clearly – the only option will be offered nine-storeyed automatic ZF gearbox.
But that’s not all. Jaguar Land Rover also showed that architecture was “finished” with regard to future electrification. From 2020 onwards, i.e. since the launch of the new generation Evoque to the series, the crossover will be offered with the so-called “mild hybrid”, which uses the enhanced electrical architecture on 48 volts. After about 12 months the market will be plug-in hybrid model, which will be the first of its kind for the brand Land Rover. The company says that the hybrid version will be able to reduce CO2 emissions to 149 g / km and demonstrate fuel savings of 4.7 liters on the WLTP cycle.
Inside JLR tried to do everything even better with a minimalist
In addition to updating the exterior design of the car and some of its powertrain, Jaguar Land Rover qualitatively changed the cabin. In addition to the introduction of a completely new steering wheel, the Evoque 2019 is equipped with a digital instrument cluster and a new widescreen infotainment display, a second touch screen through which you can control functions such as air conditioning and stereo. Exactly the same as on the older model – Velar.
The vehicle’s dimensions are nearly identical to the outgoing Evoque, but Land Rover’s designers managed to increase interior space thanks to a stretched wheelbase. For the knees of rear passengers now have an additional 20 mm and a large glove box and 10% larger trunk. Now the minimum space corresponds to 591 liter, maximum – 1.383 litres when the backrests of the second row.
Technology for off-road Evoque second version
Decent for a crossover off-road performance, the new Evoque by tradition, the Land Rover was equipped with all-wheel drive version and the branded “active driveline” Active Driveline of the second generation with the function of the Driveline Disconnect. Additionally, the Evoque 2020 got the technology Terrain Response 2, which automatically identificeret the surface on which the moving vehicle and adjusts the vehicle settings in accordance with the realities.
Another interesting inclusion in the new Evoque-technology Ground View. This feature makes the hood invisible, transparent, projecting the image from the camera on the top of the touch screen, allowing a 180-degree view of what is under the front part of the crossover. Land Rover talked about this futuristic technology in 4 years ago.
In the UK the Range Rover Evoque 2020 starts at $40,700. The beginning of sales – in 2020.
