The Range Rover Evoque is now even digitally more connected sophisticated with and the introduction of the new Range Rover Evoque Autobiography.
The new Range Rover Evoque Autobiography sits at the top of the model’s line-up and features distinctive and elegant exterior design accents and a luxurious interior. Along with other models in the Evoque range, a plug-in hybrid version is also available for customers looking for more efficiency.
Following the launch of the P300e plugin hybrid earlier in 2020, additional new engine options are now also available for the Evoque. Two updated, efficient next generation 4-cylinder Ingenium diesel engines both feature Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology. Using a belt-driven starter motor and battery pack, these MHEV vehicles harvest energy normally lost under deceleration, feeding it back to the vehicle’s 48- volt battery to boost performance and deliver enhanced fuel economy. Available in 165PS and 200PS outputs, these engines are more powerful than the outgoing engines, with improved emissions and greater efficiency.
Customers continue to have a wide selection of additional petrol engines to choose from with P200, P250 and P300 options, all with MHEV technology.
Range Rover infotainment systems have come in for some criticism in the past, but the company promises that the digital experience inside the Evoque has been transformed with the introduction of its state-of-the-art Pivi infotainment system. A separate data plan and battery mean instant warm-up while free software updates are available over-the-air via the vehicle’s embedded data connection.
This ensures customers always have the latest maps, apps, and vehicle features without having to visit a retailer. The system is enabled by a new electrical vehicle architecture and comes in standard Pivi or Pivi Pro specifications.
Land Rover claims that streaming music and media has never been simpler with Spotify integrated directly within the infotainment menu for the first time while there’s Bluetooth® connectivity for up to two phones at once. Wireless device charging with a signal-boosting option will also be welcomed. The new second-generation Activity Key is also available, allowing customers to unlock any door, lock or even start the vehicle, just by being nearby.
Anew smart all-new cabin air filtration system is controlled and monitored via the touchscreen. It filters out potentially harmful fine particulate matter often found in cities and high-traffic areas. The all-new system -introduced in addition to the existing cabin air ionisation feature — filters out fine particulate matter, allergens, pollen and even strong smells. The system can filter ultrafine particulates by simply selecting ‘Purify’ mode to activate the system, which filters and continually monitors the air inside the cabin with a display offering reassurance that the air within is indeed cleaner than that outside.
Other technology updates include a comprehensive suite of new Advanced Driver Assistance features for the Evoque including the new Rear Collision Monitor which uses radars to constantly monitor the vehicle’s rear, meaning the vehicle is primed to reduce the severity of an impact for the occupants should a potential impact be detected. The introduction of a 3D Surround Camera lets the driver see what’s happening around the vehicle at speeds of up to 19mph, making manoeuvring and navigating difficult terrain simpler than ever.
