New Range Rover Evoque unveiled

Land Rover has announced details about its new Range Rover Evoque, which is due to make its debut at the Paris Motor Show next month.

According to the manufacturer, the luxurious coupe will offer a choice of 2.2-litre turbo diesel engines, promising 148 or 187bhp. The Evoque is also environmentally friendly, with CO2 emissions as low as 130g/km.

Car buyers can also opt for a high performance 237bhp 2.0-litre petrol unit, alongside the four-wheel drive option.

Inspired by the Land Rover LRX concept car, the latest vehicle is considered as one of the most stylish compact SUV crossover models currently available in the market. It will be released in three design themes.

The firm said 'Pure' will have a "clean interior in neutral colours with soft-touch wrapped materials on the major surfaces, contrasting with metal brushed aluminium trim".

Meanwhile, 'Prestige' will combine "a bespoke exterior that includes unique, 19in wheels and sparkling metallic details with an interior that is almost entirely leather-wrapped".
