Although it has only been on the market for two years, the 2014 Range Rover Evoque gets substantial upgrades. Foremost is the new 9-speed automatic transmission, which helps improve fuel economy and acceleration, and lessen overall emissions. The exterior also gets a few noteworthy alterations, and there's a new suite of driver-assist features, including active cruise control.
Brand-new last year, for 2013 the Evoque line gets a new, more affordable base model, the Pure. Also there's a new Park Assist option that manages the steering when parallel parking, and the available navigation system now incorporates Land Rover's Off-Road Navigation.
Can an off-road-capable SUV double as an ultramodern work of art and still be taken seriously? It can if it's Land Rover's 2015 Range Rover Evoque compact-luxury SUV. The Evoque takes it to competitors like the BMW X3 and Audi Q5 by offering styling that's supercar slick, and then tossing in a truly off-road-capable suspension and all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. Rubbing salt in the wound is the 3-door Evoque coupe, a unique vehicle in this segment that should hold strong appeal to those seeking exclusivity in their daily ride. A 240-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine attached to a lightweight body provides power to all five of the Evoque's diverse trims.
