Range Rover Evoque
JAGUAR LAND ROVER is a key player within the UK economy. It is the largest investor in automotive research, development and engineering in this country and it generates billions of pounds of economic activity every year.
1,500 new jobs have been created to support the launch of the Evoque, and Jaguar Land Rover is investing in advanced research, design and technical innovation with key strategic partners, which will mean the creation of thousands more skilled jobs in the UK automotive supply chain.
It comes as no surprise then that the ‘Range Rover Evoque’ is attracting so much attention. And rightly so because, aimed squarely at the executive market, the all-new car delivers premium levels of craftsmanship, economy, luxury, performance and renowned Land Rover all-terrain capability into a shrink-wrapped package.
Offering CO2 emissions sub 130g/km and fuel economy of 58mpg combined, the Evoque is the lightest, most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever. Lightweight construction techniques and the addition of a front-wheel drive variant means optimum efficiency is achieved. In addition, new state-of-the-art petrol and diesel engines come with direct injection and Stop/Start technology. The Range Rover Evoque also adopts low CO2 systems such as electric power-assisted steering.
Looks-wise the Evoque certainly marks a bold evolution of Range Rover design. With a striking rising beltline, a muscular shoulder running the length of the car, and a distinctive taper to the floating roofline, the car adopts an extremely vibrant profile with a commanding and muscular stance. Inside, the cabin delivers exactly what you would expect; sumptuous surroundings with premium quality materials and an elegance befitting of a Range Rover interior.
The Evoque will undoubtedly tempt a whole new generation of business executives who want a large, stylish vehicle that delivers decent fuel economy, low emissions and oodles of style. The car is on sale now priced from £30,000.
