The New Range Rover Evoque has officially surfaced at Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia showrooms. For the local market, there are two Evoque variants, standard and Evoque R-Dynamic. The standard version comes in at RM426,828, while the R-Dynamic is RM475,398.
This generation's Evoque incorporates a brand new design and plenty of head turning features. First up is the Evoque’s coupe-like silhouette, to go with a fastback roofline and rising beltline. To improve the Evoque’s look further, new slim LED headlights and tail lights and flush door handles are added to evoke a bold and dynamic appearance. For the R-Dynamic version, Land Rover added more exterior enhancements and exciting offerings including burnished copper accents on the front and rear bumpers, as well as front fender inserts that add to the vehicle’s unique appeal. In wheelbase, the new Evoque is longer by 21mm which offers more cabin space and a wider, larger boot space (up to 10% more at 591 liters) compared to the previous Evoque.
Inside, the Evoque emanates an upper-level premium feel. Among the exciting offerings in the new version is the inclusion of plush leather seats, high-quality soft touch materials, InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system (10-inch touchscreens and a 12.3-inch driver display), 11-speaker Meridian Sound System, and a repertoire of innovative technologies. Exclusive for the R-Dynamic variant is the world’s first ‘ClearSight Ground View’ technology to go with ClearSight Rear View Mirror.
The new Evoque is also the first 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.
In the engine department, 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. With Lane Keep Assist, driver can stay in the lane by adding a necessary steering correction feature. Driver Condition Monitor technology is another added safety feature that is based on the steering inputs.
The new Evoque comes with 5-year Land Rover Care free servicing, 5 years warranty and 3 years roadside assistance. For a limited time, Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia is offering RM3,000 worth of accessory vouchers for new buyers.
