The new 2019 Range Rover Evoque is priced from £31,600, but the effective entry-level price for most buyers will be £35,100, Land Rover has confirmed at the launch of the new British-built luxury compact SUV.
The lowest-priced car is a 150hp D150 turbodiesel manual – but the vast majority of Evoques (more than 9 in 10, predict bosses) will be sold with an automatic gearbox, which is standard on every other variant.
The £35,100 D150 turbodiesel entry-level automatic also gets four-wheel drive as standard: the basic car is also the only front-driven Evoque you can buy.
Open for ordering now, the new Range Rover Evoque is offered in S, SE, HSE and launch First Edition variants. Every version apart from the launch special will offer an R-Dynamic upgrade pack (£1,500). Full prices are listed below.
New Range Rover Evoque specs look comprehensive. Every car comes with automatic LED headlights, climate control, 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment, heated front seats, rear camera, all-round parking sensors and autonomous emergency braking.
The £1,500 R-Dynamic upgrade pack comprises an exterior styling kit, ‘RANGE ROVER’ script in Shadow Atlas finish and, inside, a dark roofliner, perforated leather stering wheel, bright metal pedals and dark aluminium trim.
S spec adds electric leather seats, sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, plus traffic sign recognition and an adaptive speed limiter. Also, the 17-inch alloys grow to 18 inches.
SE spec improves the LED headlights to premium LEDs, wheels grow to 20 inches, the electric seats get more adjustability and the tailgate is powered. The two-touchscreen Touch Pro Duo from the Range Rover Velar is also fitted, which replaces ‘hard’ climate controls.
HSE gets perforated Windsor leather seats, a 380W Meridian sound system and the clever Clearsight rear-view mirror that overcomes the Evoque’s poor rear visibility with a high-res camera display on the mirror itself.
First Edition models have even fancier Matrix LED headlights, privacy glass, panoramic sunroof, head-up display and a comprehensive interior luxury pack.
Three petrol and four diesel engines are offered in the new Range Rover Evoque. All are 2.0-litre motors.
The base D150 diesel produces 150hp, and comes in FWD manual or 4WD automatic with an MHEV 48V mild hybrid system. Indeed, every Evoque apart from the base manual has the 48V system, which extends in-town stop-start functionality, thus saving fuel.
D180 and D240 diesels are also offered. The slowest Evoque is the D150 AWD auto, which does 0-62mph in 10.4 seconds (the manual D150 FWD is half a second faster). The D180 takes 8.8 seconds and the D240 7.2 seconds.
The petrol range comprises P200, P250 and P300 engines. Even the P200 does 0-62mph in 8.0 seconds the P300 cuts this to a swift 6.3 seconds.
