Earlier today news broke loose that Land Rover has confirmed US launch details for the 2020 Range Rover Evoque. The smallest of the automaker’s luxury SUVs, the 2020 Evoque will offer two engines in the US – including an all-new mild-hybrid – and kick off at $42,650 (loosely converted to R581 228).
This is not, of course, our first glimpse of the new Evoque. Land Rover announced it last November, promising a compact distillation of the best of the bigger Range Rovers for a more urban-friendly package. At the same time, though, it also claims to be more environmentally friendly, not to mention more tech savvy. Which leads us to be believe the starting price of the Range Rover Evoque will be no less than R700 000 when it launches on local soil later this year.
Keeping on the topic of tech, inside, Range Rover’s InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system – which splits its interface over two touchscreens – is an option, along with a 12.3-inch drive display and full-colour head-up display. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are offered, and there’s a Smart Settings feature that preemptively adjusts the cabin settings based on observations of the driver’s preferences. 4G LTE with WiFi hotspot support and six USB ports are offered.
