There’s a new Range Rover coming, and it’s borrowing all the tech and other talents of its bigger siblings but for the entry point of the line-up. The 2020 Evoque picks up where its striking first-generation predecessor left off, crisper in its styling courtesy of some borrowed cues from the Velar, and now bearing Range Rover’s first mild hybrid drivetrain. Available alongside a regular 2.0-liter gas engine, the 48V mild-hybrid promises more power and more efficiency.
Outside, the wedge-like design has been smoothed with narrower LED lights front and rear. The Velar’s trick pop-out handles have been included, too, and there are optional 21-inch wheels. Burnished copper elements are options.
Inside, there’s a clever rear-view mirror with an optional HD display, along with the option of JLR’s twin-touchscreen infotainment system. Both passenger and cargo space are up, too, courtesy of a longer wheelbase.
