Range Rover’s 5-Door version of the all-new Evoque will makes its global public debut at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show later this month.
The 5-Door Range Rover Evoque is set to join the coupe model to create a desirable line-up that will compete in the premium compact SUV segment.
With the same compact footprint and advanced technologies as the coupe model, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque reinforces Land Rover’s commitment to environmental sustainability. The Evoque is positioned as the smallest, lightest, most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever.
To deliver greater efficiency, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque features lightweight construction techniques and petrol and diesel engines comes that come with direct injection.
The more spacious interior of the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque has not been achieved by enlarging the compact footprint of the coupe model: the overall length and width remain identical.
Measuring 30mm taller than the coupe model, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque adds further space to the cabin. Rear seat passengers benefit from over 50mm more shoulder room, along with generous headroom.
The rear seats, with seat belts and head restraints for three passengers, have 60/40 folding seat squabs and are equipped with ISOFIX child seat mounts. When required, luggage capacity can be expanded to 1445 litres.
The 5-Door Range Rover Evoque shares its turbocharged powertrain line-up with the Coupe model.
Like the coupe model, the 5-Door Evoque benefits from the same high-end innovative technologies as the larger Range Rovers. A control system and touch-screen display combines a stylish, uncluttered layout with state-of-the-art functionality.
The display is available with dual-view technology, so that driver and passenger can view independent content.
Connectivity options include Bluetooth hands-free mobile phone and audio streaming, plus a range of USB and auxiliary inputs for iPods and other portable devices.
The 5-Door Range Rover Evoque follows the coupe model by offering customers the choice of three main vehicle design themes.
‘Pure ‘combines the original concept-car exterior with a stylish, clean interior in neutral colours. Soft-touch wrapped materials on the major surfaces contrast with the metal brushed aluminium trim.
‘Prestige’ is all about luxury, combining a bespoke exterior that includes unique, 19-inch wheels and sparkling metallic details with an interior that is almost entirely leather-wrapped.
‘Dynamic’ brings a bold exterior with 20-inch wheels and unique bumpers, sills, grille and tailpipes for a more assertive, confident stance. Contrasting roof and spoiler colours are available, while the premium sports interior offers sports seats with splashes of bright contrast colour.
Both coupe and 5-Door models of the Range Rover Evoque will be manufactured at Land Rover’s Halewood plant in Merseyside, UK. The car will go on sale in the northern hemisphere from summer 2011 and in New Zealand late next year.
