Land Rover unveils 2019 Range Rover Evoque

TODO alt text

Over time, the manufacturer will release a hybrid modification to the vehicle. The mild hybrid is also offered from launch, with 296hp and 295lb ft. JLR said past year every new model will come with electrified options from 2020 onwards. At speeds below 17km/h (11mph), the engine will shut off while the driver applies the brakes.

South Africans don't have much of a wait, with the first units scheduled to reach our shores in early 2019, and Land Rover has already opened the local configurator, although pricing has yet to be announced.

Despite the similar shape to the outgoing model, the new Range Rover Evoque looks significantly different. It will have an electric motor mated to a new three-cylinder gasoline engine that will reduce Carbon dioxide emissions to below 45 grams per km, the company said.

Available across the range of four-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines (automatic gearbox only), the mild hybrid delivers Carbon dioxide emissions from as low as 149 g/km and fuel economy from 17.8 km/l based on the new WLTP test procedure.

The second-generation Range Rover Evoque is certainly more evolution than revolution - retaining the basic silhouette of its predecessor but bringing the latest corporate face with ultra slim LED headlights.

Jaguar Land Rover is planning a new version of its Evoque SUV to be built in northern England, safeguarding production at a site where output has been squeezed by sliding sales in the run up to Brexit. You can see it in the second Evoque-Generation, which rolled out in April of next year to the dealers.

It's also now more efficient, with Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, as well as new Hybrid-electric and 48-volt mild hybrid options. Terrain Response 2 - first found on the full-size Range Rover - automatically detects the surface being driven on and adjusts the set-up accordingly. The Evoque can now wade to depths of 600mm up from 500mm.

For the handful of owners that do choose to take their Evoque away from the suburban grind, the new model packs a number of systems geared for all-terrain adventures, including a new Ground View feature.

Onboard tech includes a "ClearSight rear-view mirror" - billed as a segment first - that transforms into an HD video screen and displays what's behind the vehicle.

This is a starter-generator system - so can't drive the vehicle on battery power alone - which works by harvesting energy normally lost in deceleration and braking and deploying it to give the combustion engine a helping hand, with the primary aim being lower emissions and greater efficiency rather than more performance. The Evoque and S feature the 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment system whereas the SE and HSE level up to the Touch Pro Duo dual-screen layout that Land Rover used in the press photos of the Evoque. It even has a touchscreen for the ventilation controls, while the main touchscreen not only integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but can also be tilted to be perfectly adjusted.
