The new 2020 Range Rover Evoque was already teased. Unfortunately, we can not say a great deal, because the model we now get from the Jaguar Land Rover company is a wire sculpture. But that is sufficient for many enthusiasts to make their renderings. Also, from spy photos of the formerly seen crossovers, we can say there is going to be a lot of similarities with Range Rover Velar.
2020 Range Rover Evoque Overview and Interior
The 2020 Range Rover Evoque will continue to keep its measurements and it is still at the subcompact luxury class. The degree of premium features varies, depending on the trim level. The coolest features are coming with Autobiography variant. Speaking of coolness, we have to mention the most distinctive variant of the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque convertible. You won’t find Cabrio crossovers so often, and when you do, this will mostly be Evoque. We are still waiting for the Hyundai Santa Fe to officially present its convertible model.
Wire sculpture is not telling too much. Neither do spy photos. However, few things are certain. The new 2020 Range Rover Evoque will carry the Exact Same grille as the Land Rover Range Rover Velar. Similar redesign we expect on headlights and bumper. Heavy panels cover side and rear of the crossover, so it is not possible to find out what is under this camo.
We couldn’t peek into the cabin of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. However, fans can make sure the interior is bringing a lot of updates. First, the seat layout could be revisited. Also, the complete dashboard can anticipate a new look. Well, the first creation of the Evoque lasted for 12 years, and some parts are still original. The vehicle saw some upgrades through the years, but this will be the first big overhaul for the Range Rover Evoque.
2020 Range Rover Evoque Engine
In less than two weeks we’ll know more about the 2020 Range Rover Evoque. But, we doubt the JLR will release a full specs sheet to get their new crossover. Even if they don’t do that, experts are sure the crossover will probably carry the same engine as before. In the USA, Evoque uses two distinct tunings of a 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost unit. Based on installation, it can crunch 240 or even 285 hp. Additionally, the torque level raises from 250 pound-feet to 295 lb-ft. Autobiography and HSE Dynamic models are utilizing higher output version.
A nine-pace gearbox is sending power to all wheels. Full-time AWD is standard for predecessors. Therefore it will be for 2020 Range Rover Evoque. Combined, the new model will go back around 25 mpg. Highway mileage will probably reach 30 mpg. During urban cruising, expect the efficiency to drop to 22 or 23 mpg.
Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is quite able to tow. Its rating is 3,300 pounds. You will hardly find some other subcompact or perhaps bigger crossover in premium class that can pull so much. European buyers already got used to this thanks to diesel models available in this portion of the planet. In other markets, we’ll find 2020 Range Rover Evoque using 2.0-liter diesel unit. Additionally, a 2.2-l engine is available for the UK buyers.
The company also intends to add a hybrid engine on the lineup. Well, where to begin but from the smallest vehicle? With it, the 2020 Evoque will return superb fuel economy, probably over 35 mpg combined. Engineers are going to drop a turbocharger and the petrol unit will get support in the engine. This is still a far-fetched story, but possible, if not for the 2020 model, then for 2021 or 2022.
Release Date and Price
The new 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque anticipates the demonstration by the end of November. On the other hand, the crossover is not entering production instantly. We can view spy photos showing unfinished vehicle. There is a lot of work ahead of designers and engineers and the next-gen 2020 Range Rover Evoque as a production model will be officially unveiled during 2019.
Since the crossover is entering the new generation after 12 years, fans have to be prepared for a price jump. Whatsoever, to remain competitive, British carmaker is going to need to be cautious. Mercedes-Benz GLA Class, BMW X1, and Volvo XC40 are competitors which are currently cheaper than Range Rover Evoque. So, the new vehicle is not likely to cost over $45,000. Buyers can update their ride with accessible trim levels and packages. If you are after Autobiography version, prepare yourself to splash more than $70k for your favorite ride.
