2015 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Overview
- Offered in four-door and two-door versions
- Crossover construction, unlike other Land Rover models
- Nine-speed automatic transmission and on-demand four-wheel drive
The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque (say that five times fast) offers luxury and off-road capability in a sleek, crossover package that is unlike anything else in the Land Rover lineup.
The Evoque got a long list of additions and updates last year but mostly stands pat for 2015; the blind-spot warning system now includes rear cross-traffic detection but other than that, the crossover is basically identical for the new model year. The Evoque stands apart from the rest of the Land Rover lineup. It’s a stylish, low-roofed crossover in contrast to the traditional SUV high-walled look and box-on-frame construction 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 Evoque keeps the powertrain updates from 2014 that included a new transmission and a reconfigured four-wheel drive system. Power comes from a 240-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The four-wheel drive system also saw improvements; 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.
Available safety technology includes a self-parking system that will handle the steering during parallel parking and 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 optional.
