2012 RANGE ROVER EVOQUE
To commemorate its upcoming UK-market launch, Land Rover has released a handful of new photos for the five-door version of the 2012 Range Rover Evoque.
Based on the LRX concept revealed in 2008, the Evoque enters the Range Rover line-up as the brand's smallest, most affordable and most fuel efficient model yet.
Power for the Evoque is provided by a version of Ford's 2.0 litre turbocharged EcoBoost petrol engine, dubbed Si4 in Land Rover guise and paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Weighing 40kg less than Land Rover's inline six, the Si4 engine offers a comparable output, producing 180kW and 360Nm of torque in the Evoque.
Diesel engines will also be offered, both 2.2 litre four-cylinder engines producing 110kW and 140kW respectively, paired with either the six-speed auto or a six-speed manual transmission - the latter combined with a fuel-saving stop/start system.
Land Rover Australia has confirmed a local launch for the Evoque in the third quarter of 2011. Pricing and details will be revealed closer to launch.
