Back in November 2018, the all-new second-generation Range Rover Evoque was revealed at an event in London and is currently on sale in the international market. This time around, the second-generation Evoque has been spotted on test in India, thereby indicating on its possible launch sometime soon. The new model will be the first model from Jaguar Land Rover to be based on the new premium transverse architecture.
The second-gen Range Rover Evoque gets a slim front grille and LED headlights. As for the rear, the vehicle gets twin-pod LED taillights and a pair of rectangular exhausts. The one spotted on test sits on silver multi-spoke alloy wheels. Additionally, it also gets the flush door handles as seen in the Velar. The fresh updates have given it a sophisticated appearance and the wheel size has also been increased to 17-inches and an optional 21-inches.
In terms of new features, the vehicle gets a ‘ClearSight Ground View’ function that projects a virtual view of under the car onto the upper display. The new Evoque will also get Smart Settings function that was first seen on the I-Pace. The Smart Setting monitors the driver’s interaction with the car and the road to control music, climate, seat position and steering column automatically. The rear-view mirror now gets an HD display that projects from the reverse camera.
Under the hood, the new Range Rover Evoque is offered with a choice of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engine options in addition to a 48V mild hybrid version. The existing model gets a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that generates 237bhp of power and 340Nm of torque. The diesel version gets a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that generates 177bhp of power and 430Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system.
