Range Rover Evoque: Official Photos and Specs

By Updated on

Back in August we offered details of the upcoming Range Rover Evoque – due for release in summer 2011. It was only a matter of time before the Indian owned company would show off some official pictures for the press to see, which I believe is to wet our appetite ahead of the 2010 Paris Auto Show.

There is no denying that Land Rover has gone for a bold design on this one, and for good reason. The range of CUVs hitting the market is getting more adventurous with their designs – so the Evoque had to offer something special. Looking at these first official images that appear on the Telegraph website, I would say that they have certainly done that, but what do you think?

What makes the Evoque different compared to other models in the range is that it will come with front-wheel drive. Doing away with four-wheel drive will help please those who wants to cut down on CO2 emissions.

There is a choice of two 2.2-litre diesel engines, with one producing just 130g/km of CO2, for those wanting a more grunt then there is a more powerful version. Do you think that the Range Rover Evoque will be popular, or is the design to radical for the company?

    Pointless & overpriced. 90% will be owned by footballers wives.

    Dear author,

    Please learn to spell. Also, check your grammer.

    Thank you.

    Hardly matters what design they come up with unless it also means their vehicles stop being such completely useless and unreliable failures of engineering. Terrible cars, horrid resale value.

      Have you checked the Range Rover Sport resale values? They are the highest in the Luxury SUV market. Get your facts straight before spewing garbage.

      • hhh

        yes, because the range rover sport has the bmw supercharged engine that's why its reliable and thus the high resale value.

          Incorrect, naturally aspirated & supercharged versions of a Jaguar engine have always been in the Sport.

    Too not to.

    One cannot "wet" an appetite. The correct word is "whet."

    Whet: Excite or stimulate (someone's desire, interest, or appetite).

    It is supposed to be "whet" our appetite.

    You're all a bunch of pompous asses!
