Range Rover Evoque launched


evoque_1The all-new Range Rover Evoque - one of this season’s must-have motoring statements - officially went on sale to Northampton drivers at the weekend.

To mark its arrival The Range Rover Evoque was unveiled at a glittering launch party by Hartwell, where invited guests were able to get up close and appreciate its breath-taking looks and advanced technologies for the first time.

Dealer principal Nigel Austin, commented: “There has been a huge amount of excitement surrounding the Range Rover Evoque because it brings fresh design and dynamic handling to the classic Range Rover package of luxury and all-terrain performance.

“Our guests unanimously agreed that the pictures they had seen simply didn’t do the Evoque justice – with its concept car looks, contemporary interior and a wealth of equipment to satisfy technology lovers.”

The Range Rover Evoque is available in three core design themes - from the cool and contemporary ‘Pure’, to the bold and sporting ‘Dynamic’ and the luxurious ‘Prestige’ package - each of which define styling, interior comfort and equipment levels.

 An array of personalisation options are available for the Range Rover Evoque, which give customers the opportunity to tailor the vehicle to suit their lifestyle. A huge number of colour and feature combinations are available, such as contrasting roof colours and beautifully crafted designer interiors.

 Entertainment options include: digital, satellite TV and DVD playback capability - which passengers can enjoy via screens mounted in the headrests - new sound systems, developed in partnership with audio specialist Meridian (including a range-topping 825W, 17-speaker version) and an 8-inch, high-definition touch-screen display enabling front seat passengers to watch a DVD while the driver follows navigation instructions.

 Nigel Austin, added: “The Range Rover Evoque is the sixth model to join our vehicle range and creates a completely new market segment for luxury, compact sports utility vehicles.

 “I have no doubt it will attract new customers and encourage people to re-appraise what a Range Rover looks like as well as how it performs.”

 Drivers can choose from either 2WD or 4WD. In 2WD form there is the option of incorporating Range Rover’s intelligent stop/start system – which shuts down the engine to reduce tailpipe emissions and conserve fuel that would otherwise be used when stationary.

 Drivers specifying their Range Rover Evoque with 4WD benefit from a combination of technologies to maximise performance and comfort - including Land Rover’s acclaimed Terrain ResponseTM system which enables drivers to optimise driveability and comfort using settings for General Driving, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts and Sand.

 A choice of engines are available - a 150ps 2.2 litre turbo diesel eD4 engine that delivers less than 129g/km CO2 (in front-wheel-drive coupé form), 190ps SD4 version which gets from 0-60mph in 8.0 seconds when equipped with the automatic gearbox and a new 240ps 2.0 litre turbo-charged petrol engine capable of 0-60mph in just 7.1 seconds.

 The Range Rover Evoque represents accessible, desirable sophistication and is priced from £27,955 for an eD4 ‘Pure’ 5-door model (equipped with 6 speed manual gearbox and two–wheel drive) to £44,320 for a top-of-the-range Si4 ‘Dynamic’ coupé (equipped with 6 speed automatic gearbox and LUX pack).

 Range of fuel economy figures for the Range Rover Evoque in MPG (L/100KM): Urban 23.7 (11.9) - 47.9 (5.9), Extra Urban 40.9 (6.9) - 62.8 (4.5), Combined 32.5 (8.7) - 57.6 (4.9) and CO2 Emissions 129 - 199 G/KM.
