Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia has officially launched the the new 2020 Range Rover Evoque luxury compact SUV in two variants:
- Range Rover Evoque P200 – RM426,828
- Range Rover Evoque P250 R-Dynamic – RM475,398
Looking more like a mini Velar, aesthetic improvements on the new Evoque include slimmer LED headlights and taillights as well as flush door handles.
The R-Dynamic variant features more exterior enhancements and exciting offerings including burnished copper accents on the front and rear bumpers, as well as front fender inserts that add to the vehicle’s unique appeal.
The new Evoque also boasts an All-Wheel Drive with Driveline Disconnect technology, which comes as a standard feature for both variants. The system allows the driver to fully disengage drive to the rear wheels when cruising to reduce frictional losses, and seamlessly re-engage in a fraction of a second, when conditions dictate a need for additional traction.
For more adverse conditions, the Terrain Response 2 system, which is also available as standard, is engaged to automatically adjust the vehicle’s driving character to match surface conditions. The Evoque also has the best-in-class wading depth of 600mm.
Other offerings of the R-Dynamic variant include the segment’s first ‘ClearSight Rear View Mirror’ that transforms into a high-definition (HD) video screen when activated. If rear visibility is compromised by passengers or bulky items, the driver can flip a switch located on the underside of the mirror to activate a camera feed from the top of the car to display the back end of the vehicle in crisp high definition.
The screen provides a 50-degree field of vision and superior visibility in low light. Exclusive for the R-Dynamic variant, the world’s first ‘ClearSight Ground View’ technology allows the driver to virtually see through the hood and under the front end of the vehicle by projecting a 180-degree view of the ground onto the vehicle’s upper touchscreen.
The new Evoque is also the first Land Rover model to feature Smart Settings, a system which uses artificial intelligence algorithms to learn the driver’s preference. The system applies the driver’s preference to automate comfort and driver-specific media settings throughout the drive.
The new Evoque “recognises” the driver from their key fob and phone with the use of ‘self-learning’ technology, enabling specific seat and steering column position set up upon approach. Up to eight driver profiles can be registered.
After a few journeys, the Evoque remembers the driver’s preferred temperature settings, media preference and commonly dialled numbers, depending on the time or day of the week.
The Land Rover InControl® Touch Pro Duo infotainment system is central to the vehicle’s digital interior experience, combining two sleek 10-inch high-definition glass touchscreens and a 12.3-inch driver display behind the steering wheel.
The result is a beautiful, ‘hidden until lit’ interior equipped with state-of-the-art digital interface. It comes standard for both Evoque and Evoque R-Dynamic variants.
Where infotainment is concerned, there is Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, and a Meridian Sound System with a total of 11 speakers including a subwoofer.
A longer wheelbase of 21mm yields an increase in the overall cabin size with improvements seen in the rear leg and knee room, as well as a larger glove box and centre console. The luggage space is also 10% larger (591 litres) and much wider, which makes it possible to fit in a folded pram or a set of golf clubs.
The space can be further increased to 1,383 litres when the flexible 40:20:40 second-row seats are folded. Lane Keep Assist, a new safety feature, helps the driver to stay in their lane by adding a necessary steering correction feature.
Under the hood, both variants get the 2.0 litre Ingenium turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, paired with a ZF 9-speed automatic gearbox. While the Evoque P200 produces 200 PS and 320 Nm, the P250 R-Dynamic kicks out 249 PS and 365 Nm of torque.
Further complementing the whole package is the brand’s Efficient Driveline AWD system with Driveline Disconnect function.
