2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Overview
- New nine-speed automatic transmission and updated four-wheel drive
- Offered with four-doors or two-doors (Coupe)
- New optional safety technology available for 2014
The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque comes with plenty of additions for the new model year, including a new transmission and even more advanced safety technology.
The Evoque, since its debut in 2012, has stood apart from the rest of the Land Rover lineup. It’s a stylish, sleek looking crossover in contrast to the traditional SUV look and chassis found on the LR2 and Range Rover. Available in both both two-door Coupe and four-door varieties, the Evoque offers 19-inch alloy wheels, xenon HID adaptive headlights, and a power liftgate as standard equipment. Higher trim levels feature a panoramic moonroof which really opens up the cabin and makes it feel more spacious.
Under the hood, the 2014 Evoque gets a few powertrain updates for the new model year to its transmission and four-wheel drive system. Power still comes from a 240-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that is now mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission that is more efficient, and improves performance. The four-wheel drive system has also been improved; instead of a permanent four-wheel drive system, the new Active Driveline system can change torque on the fly between the rear wheels and send power where it’s needed most.
Inside the Evoque has a well-appointed interior with available leather upholstery and signature Land Rover touches like a knob that is twisted to select the gear instead of a traditional leaver. Dual-zone automatic air conditioning, a Meridian stereo, auto-dimming rearview mirror, 8-inch touch screen, USB ports (x2), and Bluetooth connectivity come standard. A rear seat entertainment center with two 8-inch screens is optional.
Safety technology has also expanded for 2014; in addition to a self-parking system that will handle the steering during parallel parking, there is now a Park Exit system which will automatically pull the car out of a parallel parking spot. Adaptive cruise control and oncoming-traffic detection are also new and optional.
