Powering Forward to Geneva

Powering Forward to Geneva

The Geneva Motor show in March will unveil the new model Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic. The Evoque has undergone modifications to the suspension, an increase in power and some subtle design changes. With the fastest ever production model of the Range Rover Sport RS arriving late in 2014; the revised Evoque will more than satisfy those with an appetite for Range in the meantime. A Land Rover spokesperson has said at this time there are no plans for an Evoque RS, although this is not certain. For now, the Evoque will use the same 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine. Upgrades now enable this to produce 281bhp, an increase of 44bhp and 400Nm torque, which is a rise of 60Nm. The 9-speed automatic gearbox has also been adjusted to provide a sportier driving experience. Additionally, the suspension, springs and dampers have been revised for a better performance. The front brakes have been increased in their diameter from 300mm to 350mm. These improvements are complimented by a new front bumper and grille, 20 inch alloy wheels, the inclusion of the Autograph badge and the option for new metallic Phoenix Orange paint. Land Rover InControl will also be included, an app for both smartphones and to use on the in-car display screen; this will become a standard on all future Evoque models. Since production of the Evoque’s began in 2011, demand has remained strong with over 270,000 sold. This new model Evoque will be offered as a Coupe or a 5 door and first cars can be expected in October this year. Prices for the new Evoque are set to start at just over £50,000.
