The first ever mild hybrid from Land Rover – the all new Rover Evoque finally makes its debut in London. The British SUV gets an appearance like the Velar’s baby brother. The new Evoque SUV is 13 percent stiffer than its previous counterpart. Moreover, the noise and vibration levels of the SUV have also been reduced. The all new Rover Evoque is based on the company’s new mixed metal Premium Transverse Architecture.
The interior of the all new Rover Evoque is made up of Kvadrat wool, Dinamica suede and even Eucalpytus textile and Ultrafabrics that employs recycled plastics and natural materials. 33 kg of weight of the new Evoque will be made up by the natural and recycled materials. The interior is now more spacious with 0.8 inches enhanced legroom. The luggage storage space is also six percent larger. The rear seat table holders along with charging ports for the rear passengers are also offered.
The up front, Land Rover’s InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system combines a pair of 10 inch screens with a 12.3 inch digital dash and a full color head up display. The infotainment screen on the cockpit allows one to see through the hood to the ground directly in front of the vehicle. The all new Rover Evoque features a rear view camera mirror, projecting a rear facing camera into the central rear view mirror. A Clear Sight Ground view camera is also provided to the new Evoque.
Under the hood, the all new Rover Evoque sports a four cylinder, 48 volt mild system which makes a power of 296 hp. This unit captures energy normally lost during deceleration and stores it in an underfloor battery pack. The ICE shuts off at speeds lower than 11 kmph on applying the brakes. At the time of acceleration again, the stored energy is redeployed to assist the engine. Besides this, the traditional 246 hp turbo four gasoline engine with more units will also be introduced on the new Evoque. The all new premium SUV is offered with an all wheel drive system and the Land Rover’s terrain Response System along with six driving modes – General, Eco, Sand, Mud-Ruys, Grass-Gravel-Snow and Auto. More details regarding the all new Rover Evoque SUV will be revealed during the 2019 Chicago Auto Show to be held in the month of February.
