Land Rover plans a "hot" version of the Evoque


Currently, the most powerful Evoque model is powered by a 2.0 liter engine that produces a total of 237 HP, but that won’t be the case for long. In a market that is already populated with some outstanding competition, the Evoque has to step up its game to get good footing, which is why Land Rover is working on a more powerful version of the SUV. The company has pegged the output at 300 HP, but hasn’t found found a suitable name just yet: "We’ll have to look at badges or a sub-brand," said Evoque Program Director David Mitchell. Currently, the most powerful versions of the Land Rover line are badged as "supercharged," so we’ll see if the company adopts the same strategy for the Evoque.

An Evoque prototype powered by a Ford-derived 2.0-liter turbo petrol unit has already been tested by Mitchell and he thinks that the chassis can take it. All Land Rover has to do now is to give the new model a green light.

The body design is good, but it’s color is not.. I hate to say this but in my own opinion, its color red and white looks more like a taxi cab.. However, looking on its colored white one, I can say that it’s very aggressive!

Hot version of Evoque? Well, sounds good but I don’t think that it will be a good idea. The latest Evoque had been already hot for me and if it the looks of their hot version I must say that it still looks like their latest design and I’m still preferring that.
