The five-door version of Land Rover’s Range Rover Evoque crossover made its debut at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show, giving us our first look at the three-door model’s more practical sibling.
As we previously reported, the five-door version of the Range Rover Evoque is offered in three trims: Pure, Prestige, and Dynamic. A 2.0-liter four-banger EcoBoost sourced from Ford generates 237 horsepower and is attached to a six-speed automatic transmission. According to Land Rover, the Evoque can scoot from 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds – about average for the segment.
The Evoque will be offered with a permanent all-wheel drive system. Off-road capability (this is a Land Rover) is handled by the Evoque’s Terrain Response system and optional Adaptive Dynamics with MagneRide.
Gerry McGovern, Design Director, Land Rover, states the Evoque will be one of the most well-equipped crossovers in its segment. Leather is definitely offered and covers virtually every instrument panel, interior panels, as well as the seats in the Evoque. A panoramic roof, surround five-camera system (including backup camera), navigation, HD digital radio, powered tailgate, xenon adaptive headlamps, and heated windshield and steering wheel are just some of the options available. Finally, both the Prestige and Dyanamic trims offer optional 20-inch wheels and a host of color choices.
Pricing for the Evoque to start around $45,000. Both the Ranger Rover “coupe” Evoque and five-door Evoque will be manufactured at Land Rover’s Halewood plant in Merseyside, UK.
