The Range Rover Evoque transformed the Land Rover range when it first launched in 2011, and now the dynamic SUV has undergone a major re-design to include a refreshed exterior and superior levels of capability.
Irish customers can preview ahead of its official launch in May, what Land Rover Ireland describes as the groundbreaking new model with prices starting from €42,845 for the Evoque 2.0D FWD Manual.
Exclusive previews will take place in Land Rover showrooms across the country from the 19th March as follows:
19th – 25th March: Spirit Land Rover, Dublin South
26th – 31st March: Joe Duffy Land Rover, Dublin North
1st – 7th April: Johnson & Perrott Land Rover, Cork
8th – 14th April: Autoboland Land Rover, Waterford
23rd – 28th April: Conlans Land Rover, Kildare
7th – 12th May: Lyons Land Rover, Limerick
Land Rover says that the Evoque has won the hearts of drivers across the world thanks to its unique blend of luxurious design and off-road capability.
It adds that careful to retain its distinctive character, the new Range Rover Evoque holds its eye-catching shape and proportions but sees the introduction of a striking reductive design language embodied by a faster roofline. It also boasts of a more streamlined silhouette and arresting clean lines along the body, for a more contemporary and premium feel.
Having pioneered the luxury compact SUV market, now with more than 217 international awards, the new Range Rover Evoque is a sophisticated evolution of the original according to Land Rover. And it says that it combines unrivalled Range Rover heritage with cutting-edge technology.
The lowest emitting CO2 derivative is the 143g/km front wheel drive, manual transmission with 150PS Ingenium diesel engine. The most popular all-wheel drive, automatic transmission vehicles, come with a choice of four-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines.
An even more efficient plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) and three-cylinder petrol Ingenium engine will also join the range next year.
There is a reversing camera as standard on all models, alongside a suite of advanced driver assistance systems. This includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist, which centres the vehicle in the lane based on road markings as well as maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle in front.
