Total comfort and versatility
Measuring 1.18 inches (30mm) taller than the coupe model, the five-door Range Rover Evoque adds space and versatility to the luxurious cabin. Rear seat passengers benefit from over 1.97 inches (50mm) more shoulder room, along with generous headroom, which compares very favorably to traditional sporting sedans.
A full-sized glass panoramic roof enhances the sensation of space and comfort by filling the interior with natural light, and offers greater headroom for all occupants.
The rear seats, with seat belts and head restraints for three passengers, have 60/40 folding rear seats and are equipped with LATCH child seat mounts. When required, luggage capacity can be expanded to a substantial 51 cubic ft (1445 liters).
The driver adopts a lower seating position than in one of the larger Range Rover models offering a more sporting feel but retaining the important Command Driving Position.
Dynamic handling and effortless, refined performance
Land Rover engineers have developed the five-door Range Rover Evoque to provide customers with a polished driving experience combining dynamic and sporty handling with responsive, effortless performance and refinement.
Murray Dietsch, Director of Land Rover Programs said, "The five-door Range Rover Evoque has the same sporting character as the Coupe. We have focused on ensuring that the car is agile and fun to drive, so that customers have a rewarding experience, even in day-to-day urban driving. Advanced technologies such as MagneRide mean we can ensure that this dynamic prowess does not come at the cost of top-quality refinement or comfort."
The car can be specified with the sophisticated Adaptive Dynamics system, which uses advanced MagneRide™ dampers to provide an enhanced balance of confident, nimble handling with a supple, controlled ride. The suspension delivers even tighter body control with flatter handling and sharper responses.
As expected in a Range Rover, the five-door Range Rover Evoque delivers all-weather, multi-terrain capability. In common with its larger siblings, the new model provides formidable multi-terrain potential, which is enhanced by the latest version of the company's signature Terrain Response® system.
Drivers who take their Range Rover Evoque off-road will be reassured to know that, in addition to generous ground clearance, the car has aggressive breakover and departure angles.
The five-door Range Rover Evoque shares its smooth and responsive turbocharged powertrain with the Coupe model. The advanced new 240bhp* 2.0-liter Si4 turbocharged engine combines direct fuel injection and twin variable valve timing for drivability and fuel efficiency, and an athletic 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds*.
Murray Dietsch continued, "The state-of-the-art four-cylinder turbocharged engine combines
six-cylinder refinement and performance with impressive fuel economy. This efficiency has been achieved by the commitment of the product development team to deliver a compact and weight efficient product, with no compromise on durability and robustness."
Commitment to sustainability
With the same compact footprint and advanced technologies as the coupe model, the five-door Range Rover Evoque reinforces Land Rover's commitment to environmental sustainability. The Range Rover Evoque is the smallest, lightest, most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever.
The new vehicle's sustainability credentials stem from a comprehensive approach to reducing its environmental impact throughout the product lifecycle, from development and manufacturing, through to customer use and end-of-life recycling.
Key product innovations which drive its greener performance include:
- Compact size - at 171-inches (434cm) the five-door Range Rover Evoque vehicle is 17 inches (432mm) shorter than a Range Rover Sport vehicle and sits around 6 inches (152mm) lower
- Lightweight technologies - advanced materials used throughout the body and chassis
- Efficient powertrain - state-of-the-art, with high-efficiency features like direct injection
- Low CO2 technologies - incorporating electric power assisted steering (EPAS), smart regenerative charging and optimized transmissions
- Recycling and re-use - maximizing use of sustainable and recycled materials, plus optimizing end-of-life recyclability
