10 Facts To Prove That The 2019 Range Rover Evoque Is Worth Every Dime
As one of the most successful Land Rover products of all time, the Range Rover Evoque has just been thoroughly reworked. Despite looking eerily similar to the first generation car, the new Evoque is actually entirely new - based on an all-new platform, with all new exterior and interior looks, and most importantly, with the tech that complements the change and launches the Evoque into the premium stardom of the future better than ever before. As you may know by now, the looks in themselves do not make a car premium.
Heritage, brand recognition, buyer base and, of course, the technology, do that as well. One needs to build on all of these virtues to be considered premium. And, the Range Rover Evoque has it all. Novel approach by its engineers injects a new life into it with the help of the introduction of some amazing features.
I am listing ten must known facts about the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. It’s quite something.
The 2020 Range Rover Evoque Has the Coolest Rear View Mirror Ever
The Range Rover Evoque isn’t exactly a spring chicken and 2019 marks the introduction of the second-generation of Land Rovers entry-level people mover. Entry level is a weak word when it comes to the Evoque however and, despite the fact that this model looks a lot like the old at a glance, there’s a lot of new tech here. The Evoque just became Land Rovers first mild hybrid vehicle and a plug-in model is even on the way. New screens adorn the updated dashboard inside but what really stuck out to me was the new hybrid rear view mirror.
Land Rover Spent Almost £1 Billion To Give the Evoque a Mild Facelift and New Technology
Land Rover chose Thanksgiving day to debut the new Range Rover Evoque and here we are looking at a model that, at a glance, received a very mild, even somewhat Audi-like, facelift. Below this mildly changed skin, however, Land Rover claims it has spent nearly £1 Billion to refine the architecture underneath with the goal of making it suitable for electrification.
The interior is also littered with plenty of high-end tech, including two high-definition touchscreen displays, refined infotainment software, and artificial intelligence. Powertrain options include a range of diesel and gasoline engines. The entry-level model (the D150 trim) is the only model available with a six-speed manual and is the only model available without Land Rover’s mild hybrid technology. Towing capacity ranges anywhere between 3,527 and 4,409 pounds depending on trim and equipment level.
Why is the Range Rover Evoque the only convertible SUV on sale now?
Range Rover is the only manufacturer to offer a drop top high riding vehicle that comes with a posh electric retractable hardtop and, while you may not immediately feel like you want one, the formula isn’t without appeal. That’s why it’s surprising to me that there is just one model that you can buy if you are in the market for such a vehicle. At least until the smaller Volkswagen T-Roc Cabrio hits the market, anyway.
Land Rover Uses Wire Art to Tease the Next-Gen Range Rover Evoque
The new Range Rover Evoque will be unveiled next week in London but, until then, here’s a tangible sneak peek to quench our thirst for more on Land Rover’s new compact luxury SUV: a number of wireframe models that showcase the model’s evocative lines.
The Range Rover Evoque was launched back in 2011 as a sleek and posh alternative to the bulky Range Rover that was meant for city usage first and foremost, not the off-road venue where the brand made a name for itself. The Gerry McGovern-designed SUV was previewed by the LRX concept unveiled in 2008. Now, a decade later, we’re nearing the release of the new Evoque that Land Rover has teased with the #HelloEvoque campaign that involved a few wireframe models photographed around London.
2019 BMW X7 vs 2019 Land Rover Range Rover
Big SUVs are as popular as ever, with buyers flocking to dealers to get the very latest in tall-riding, high-end utility vehicles. The latest from BMW is the X7, which sits above the X5 in terms of size and passenger capacity, arriving as a brand-new model line for the Bavarians. By contrast, the Land Rover Range Rover is well-established as the go-to model for a combination of functionality and luxury, like a penthouse suite on wheels that you can drive through a mud puddle. Both are mighty impressive, but how do they compare? To find out, we took an in-depth look at both, including a rundown on the exterior styling, interior design, features, drivetrain, performance, technology, and price. Read on for all the important info you need to know!

The Range Rover Sport P400e Plug-In Hybrid Can Drive Using Electricity Alone

Next-Gen Range Rover Will Set its Sights on Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan
The arrival of the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan has put the Range Rover on the sidelines, but the old guard is about to put up a fight, and the Bentayga and Cullinan are in its crosshairs. The next-gen Range Rover is scheduled to arrive in 2021, and according to reports, it’s going to be a significant improvement over the current-generation model, in large part because the bar in the super-luxury SUV segment has been raised by Bentley and Rolls-Royce.
Which is Better: The Audi Q8, The BMW X6, or The Range Rover Sport?
Audi just extended its SUV lineup to include the Q8, essentially a sportier proposition to the utilitarian, wagon-like Q7. The new crossover marks Audi’s entry in the coupe-style market, a playground dominated by the BMW X6 since 2007. The segment also includes the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and the boxier Range Rover Sport.
With a new player on the market, it’s natural to ask yourselves which one is better. We’re here to answer this question by comparing the Audi Q8 against the BMW X6 and the Range Rover Sport. We left the GLE Coupe out of the game simply because it’s based on a model that was launched all the way back in 2011 and a new-generation model is just around the corner.

2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport Landmark Edition
Introduced in 2014 as a replacement for the Freelander, the Land Rover Discovery Sport needs only a few years to become the fastest-selling Land Rover of all time. The crossover’s popularity prompted Land Rover to create a range of special-edition models, the latest of which is called the Landmark Edition and it’s available for the 2018 model year.
Another reason why Land Rover chose the Discovery Sport to be the designated nameplate for special-edition model is because it was also the first model to be built on the company’s 70th birthday on 30 April. The vehicle will thus be used to support a number of projects in 2018, starting with a community resilience project in Scotland. The Landmark Edition adds unique color and trim combinations to the popular crossover, pairing them with a powerful version of the 2.0-liter Ingenium diesel engine. Let’s find out more about it below.

A Combination of Poor Diesel Sales and Brexit Leads to Jaguar Land Rover Job Cuts and Reduced Production
2018 hasn’t been a good year for Jaguar Land Rover. The automaker is reporting massive declines in sales volume as fears over Brexit begin to take hold of the company. The decline in demand for diesel models has also contributed to the stagnant sales, forcing the automaker to slash as many as 1,000 jobs and reduce production output in the U.K.
