Say Hello To The 2020 Range Rover Evoque

Land Rover has officially dropped covers on the second generation of its compact SUV Evoque. The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque follows similar footsteps of the outgoing model, except with a new platform.

The small SUV takes its design cues heavily from its elder sibling Velar, down to the flush, power extending door handles, rose gold exterior on some of the variants and a tapering roof towards the rear. Unlike the outgoing model, Land Rover has decided to ditch the three-door coupe version of the SUV, while sporting wide front shoulders and up to 21-inch of wheel size.

Up front, the new Evoque sports a redesigned honeycomb grille that is bookended by thinner LED headlights reaching back into the front fenders. With the new two-piece headlights, the tailgate is now wider and does not interfere far into the hatchback’s cutout.

Land Rover has retained the engine on the new Evoque, featuring a turbo-4 engine, a 9-speed automatic, and all-wheel drive. Base models are equipped with a 2.0-litre turbo-4 that makes 246 horsepower—a 9 hp bump from the outgoing version—while uprated versions use Range Rover’s first mild-hybrid system that provides 296 hp from a turbo-4 and a 48-volt system.

The Evoque sports the next generation of the Active Driveline system that was introduced in the company’s lineup when it was first launched in 2012. The new generation of the drivetrain, that is optional on most Evoques, but standard on top P300 versions is capable of shuttling power between the front and rear wheels, simulating torque vectoring and ‘virtually’ lock the rear wheels on loose surfaces like sand.

Apart from that, the new Range Rover Evoque also features the company’s latest Terrain Select 2 system that modulates the throttle, brake and crawling functions on a variety of surfaces like snow, sand, mud and catwalk.

For the first time, the Range Rover Evoque will feature a unique camera system that would allow the driver to see what’s underneath the vehicle. The so-called ClearSight Ground View system digitally removes parts of the vehicle to help the driver place the wheels on tough terrain. It’s the first application of a system we saw in 2014 from Range Rover.
