production reality, faithfully capturing the original design of this landmark
In keeping with the ethos of Range Rover, the Evoque delivers premium
levels of craftsmanship, luxury, performance and renowned Land Rover

luxury, refined performance and all-terrain capability.
“The Evoque marks a bold evolution of Range Rover design.
With its dramatic rising beltline, a muscular shoulder running the length of
the car, and a distinctive taper to the floating roofline, the Range Rover
Evoque adopts a very dynamic profile with a powerful and athletic stance.”

know that, in addition to extremely generous ground clearance, the car has
significantly better breakover, approach and departure angles than other
The Evoque will be the first Range Rover to offer customers a choice
between a full-time four-wheel-drive system, which delivers outstanding
performance and traction on all surfaces, and a low carbon, front-wheel-drive
option for further enhanced fuel economy.
