2020 Range Rover Evoque uses the British brand’s new mixed-metal premium transverse architecture, offers roomier experience
Land Rover has unveiled the 2020 Range Rover Evoque that comes with new design and features on board along with a mild-hybrid technology. As it appears, the SUV has taken strong inspiration from the sibling Range Rover Velar. The similar aggressiveness is portrayed through sleek LED headlamps, taillights alongside the overall appearance. If we look at the front fascia, the similarity with Velar can be seen.
The 2020 Range Rover Evoque comes with flush door handles, smooth and sculpted side profile. The shoulder line and wheelarches reflect masculinity. The new Evoque doesn’t come bigger than the outgoing model, but thanks to the new mixed-metal premium transverse architecture of the Land Rover, the SUV offers more room to the occupants inside the cabin ensuring a comfortable experience.
The 2020 Range Rover Evoque also offers 6 percent extra space for luggage as the boot space comes with 610-litre of capacity that can be expanded up to 1,430-litre, with the rear seats folded. Apart from premium features like twin touchscreen incorporating InControl TouchPro Dup infotainment system, the new Evoque also emphasizes on environment friendly materials. This is why, the car gets premium alternatives for leather.
On the powertrain front, a new 48 volt electric motor has been introduced that comes combined with the 1.5-litre Ingenium engine, which is capable of churning out 197 bhp of peak power and 280 Nm of peak torque. This mild –hybrid technology is the first for the British marque and this is expected to be introduced to the other models of the automaker as well. This technology will generate energy while braking and apply that efficiently.
