Land Rover will launch the all new Range Rover Evoque in India before the end of 2011. Land Rover does not want to delay the Evoque which is a very important product from the Range Rover range.
The Evoque will be launched in three-door coupé and five-door SUV versions, with prices starting from Rs 49 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
The three-door will be available only in Dynamic trim with a 2.0-litre, 237bhp turbo-petrol. The five-door will be offered in three trims — Pure, Prestige and Dynamic — and a 2.2-litre, 187bhp common-rail, turbo-diesel. Both engines are mated to a six-speed auto and power all four wheels. There are no plans to introduce the front-wheel-drive Evoque in the near future. This step makes sense as the brand may get diluted if the company does consider step.
The Pure is the base version but is quite well equipped. Standard features are Range Rover’s Terrain Response off-road system, cruise control, a fixed panoramic glass roof, Xenon headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless go, climate control, electric adjust front seats, leather seats, paddle-shifters a touch-screen audio, Bluetooth connectivity and an 11-speaker Meridian audio system.
The Prestige variant adds a luxury interior and exterior styling kit, 18-inch alloy wheels, premium leather seats, contrast painted roof and keyless entry. The Dynamic variant comes with everything the Pure and Pleasure has and a sporty exterior and interior styling kit and perforated leather seats.
