The Crossover Sports Utility Vehicle segment is growing at a very rapid pace. The new 2017 Range Rover Evoque will be introduced to tap into this very fast moving market. In particular, the carmaker is planning to introduce the Range Rover Epoque, which it hopes will help the brand maintain its leadership position in the market. The concept vehicle is designed to be low slung and it will also be longer than the present model of Range Rovers.
2017 Range Rover Evoque – Exterior and Interior
The body of the new 2017 Range Rover Evoque will be just big enough to be considered a true crossover. The carmaker also plans to use many of the features from the Jaguar F-Pace. The Evoque will also have many of the same qualities within the cabin as are found in the current model. The only difference is that the new model has more impressive dimensions. There is for example more legroom for passengers and there is also likelihood that the carmaker will install a third row of seats to further increase the seating capacity of the new Range Rover Evoque. In the third row there will be space to store some cargo.
The cabin also gets a nice infotainment system, which is similar to the infotainment system in the present model. This infotainment system comes with a large 8-inch touchscreen console and it also boasts of Bluetooth connectivity as well as sat navigation functions.
On the outside, the carmaker has included a very nice suspension system that makes it easy for the driver to push the vehicle to its limits, especially when driving in off-road terrains. The body has a very futuristic appearance and the grille has been trimmed and features larger air intakes. The hood is slanted and this ensures better aerodynamics. At the front, the headlights make use of LED lamps and they also have LED lane indicators.
The new 2017 Range Rover Evoque also comes with many useful safety features including a system that helps the driver stay in the right lane. Another app makes it less likely that the driver will collide with other cars by monitoring the driver’s alertness and issuing a warning when the driver is not as attentive as he or she should be.
2017 Range Rover Evoque – Engine Specs
Under the hood, the new 2017 Range Rover Evoque will get new petrol and diesel engines. A 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine powers the present model. The new engines will be more refined and will deliver 240 horsepower and more efficient twisting force. The present model is designed to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a little over 7 seconds. The new engine will do the same in about half a second less. The new engines are also more fuel efficient and will probably deliver fuel economy figures of more than 30 miles per gallon, which is better than the present engine’s 24 mpg fuel economy rating. The nice thing about the new engines is that they will also produce lower emissions.
2017 Range Rover Evoque – Release Date and Price
The 2017 Range Rover Evoque will probably be seen for the first time in the third quarter of next year and sales will probably begin in November of that year. The 2017 Range Rover Epoque will probably cost about something in the region of 42, 000 and 57,000 dollars.
