“It doesn’t look like anything else on the road,” says John Suess, manager at Range Rover Hinsdale. “It’s the lightest, smallest, most compact, and fuel efficient Range Rover ever.”
Range Rover’s Evoque is a luxury crossover that brings coup design to one of the most sought after luxury brands on the road – an SUV versatile enough to appeal to city dwellers, suburbanites, and outdoor adventurers.
With an engaging blend of dynamic handling and refined engineering, it’s also the most sustainable Range Rover ever with a compact footprint and advanced technology that delivers exciting performance together with reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
“The new Evoque is offered in three distinct derivatives,” says John, “The Prestige is the luxury version; the Dynamic is the performance model; and Pure embodies the essence of their LRX show car.” Two body styles give buyers a choice of a two-door smaller coup or a five door SUV with the added practicality and convenience families need.
No matter what the model, car aficionados are talking about the Evoque. Popular Mechanics calls it “the funkiest Range Rover ever;” Car & Driver dubs it, “stylish and utilitarian;” Autoweek predicts it to be, “Range Rover’s soon-to-be best seller;” and Motortrend hailed it for its “Form, function, and finesse: a brave new Land Rover conquers a greener frontier.”
Aesthetically, the Evoque is incredibly appealing is its dramatic design, beautiful silhouette, and precise craftsmanship. The panoramic sunroof lends a spaciousness to the vehicle, and the coop is roomy enough for tall passengers. The Oxford leather steering wheel and climate control with air filtration offer even more luxury and sophistication.
Range Rover offers advanced technology with Voice Control to enhance comfort and convenience, its signature 8-inch multi-function, high-definition Touch-screen interface for communication and entertainment, and the company’s Terrain Response System for both off-road treks or simply driving safely in a snowstorm. Subtle interior mood lighting creates a pleasant Range Rover driving experience day and night.
While the 240 horsepower, turbo-charged 2.0-liter engine with its mammoth torque propels the Evoque from zero to sixty miles per hour in 7.1 seconds, up to a top speed of 135 miles per hour, the best part of all could be the exterior color choices. The Evoque is available in stunning, mostly metallic colors named after exotic locations – Fuji White suggests classic elegance; Firenze Red hints at Italian power; Sumatra Black is as dark as the coffee grown on the Indonesian Island; and Mauritius Blue is as stunning as the water along the South African coastline.
“We’ve never had this kind of interest in a car,” says John, “People are excited because they can customize them with different roofs, wheels, and interiors.”
Choose from luxury interior options ranging from Almond Espresso grained leather with twin-needle stitching, a leather trimmed dashboard, real wood accents, and brushed aluminum trim to design a one-of-a-kind car that precisely reflects your individual style.
Go ahead, add the Range Rover Evoque to your wish list this year.
