The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque (commonly known as the Range Rover Evoque) is a subcompact luxury crossover SUV produced by the British manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover. The Range Rover Evoque is based on the Land Rover LRX concept presented by the manufacturer at the 2008 North American International Auto Show.
The Evoque uses unibody rather than body on frame construction with a kerb weight of 1,670 kg (3,680 lb) and an aluminium hood/bonnet and roof, as well as a composite one-piece tailgate.
The Evoque comes in 12 different body colours with three optional contrasting roof colours and five optional wheel choices, though Land Rover offers a “designers choice” of predetermined combinations on most models. The Dynamic model incorporates more aggressive bodywork including a different front fascia and lowered suspension.
The Evoque can be equipped with five exterior cameras.
The Evoque is capable of class-leading off-road performance with 215 mm (8.5 in) of ground clearance, 25° approach and 33° departure angles, and a 500 mm (19.7 in) wading depth.
The Evoque was equipped with either two-wheel drive or a generation IV Haldex permanent four-wheel drive system until the 2014 model year update when the Haldex system was replaced by two optional All-Wheel Drive Systems (Standard Driveline or Active Driveline) by GKN Driveline. The Evoque also comes standard with Land Rover’s latest version of Terrain Response, which maximises traction in a variety of conditions by altering throttle response, power distribution, and suspension settings. The Terrain Response system also includes electronic stability control, roll stability control, traction control, and an optional hill-descent control that automatically applies braking to control speed when moving down an incline.
A third-generation MagneRide suspension system is also available, which works by magnetising iron particles inside the suspension fluid to quickly adapt shock absorber firmness to road changes.
