Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia is set to unveil the New Range Rover Evoque on 26 June via virtual means due to the current situation.
The Range Rover Evoque has been a well received Premium SUV model in Malaysia when it first came out in 2010. This generation's Evoque incorporates a brand new design and plenty of head turning features. The new design language makes the Evoque even more appealing than before, coupled with advanced driver assistance technologies, ground-breaking off-road technologies and an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system.
A evolution of the previous generation, the new Evoque has a more distinctive coupe-like silhouette, to go with a fastback roofline and rising belt line. The introduction of new slim LED headlights and tail lights emphasize the vehicle’s new design language while flush door handles add to the smooth, sculpted aesthetic.
Technology and more
Among the exciting offerings in the new version is the inclusion of ClearSight technology, such as the ClearSight Rear View Mirror that transforms into an HD video screen when engaged. Should rear visibility be compromised by passengers or bulky items, the driver can flip a switch on the underside of the mirror and a camera feed from the top of the car will display what is behind the vehicle in crisp high definition. The video screen provides a 50-degree field of vision and superior visibility in low light.
In addition, the world-first ‘ClearSight Ground View’ technology is designed to allow drivers to virtually see through the hood and under the front end of the vehicle by projecting a 180-degree view of the ground onto the vehicle’s upper touchscreen. This is useful when navigating through tight parking spaces, high city curbs or tackling difficult terrains.
The new Evoque is also the first Land Rover model to feature Smart Settings, a system which uses artificial intelligence algorithms to learn a driver’s preferences. The system will then use the driver’s preference to automate comfort and driver-specific media settings throughout the drive. Using ‘self-learning’ technology, the system also recognizes the drivers from their key fob and phones and will thereby set their seat and steering column position on approach, allowing for up to eight profiles to be registered. After a few journeys, the Evoque is able to remember the driver’s preferred temperature settings, media preferences and commonly dialled numbers, depending on the time or day of the week.
When it comes to driver;s amenities, the Premium SUV’s digital interior experience is one step ahead thanks to the InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system that combines two sleek 10-inch high-definition glass touchscreens and a 12.3-inch driver display behind the steering wheel.
As for cargo space, the new SUV takes up a standard 591 liters, expandable to 1,383 liters.
The new Evoque takes up a new 2.0l Ingenium turbo engine that supplies fast response to throttle demand and a more engaging drive as boost pressure is delivered nearly instantaneously. The Ingenium engine is paired with a state-of-the-art nine-speed automatic transmission.
Among the new assistance systems reserved for the new Evoque are Lane Keep Assist and Driver Condition Monitor.
Further details on pricing and color options will be made available soon.
