2019 Range Rover Evoque – what we know so far

Next year, Land Rover is expected to replace its hugely popular Range Rover Evoque. But what can you expect from the new model?...

2019 Range Rover Evoque – what we know so far

Seven years after it was launched, the Range Rover Evoque still looks fresh, so it’s perhaps not surprising that it continues to sell in huge numbers; more than 100,000 found homes last year alone.

This also explains why the new model is set to have an evolutionary, rather than a revolutionary design. But what else do we know so far?

Improved comfort and refinement

2019 Range Rover Evoque prototype testing on track

The second-generation Evoque is based on a stiffer version of the current car’s chassis, which should make it easier to tune the suspension. In particular, Land Rover is aiming to improve ride comfort, while a more aerodynamic design should make the car quieter at speed.

Petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid power

Range Rover plug-in hybrid

The engine line-up is new, with the 2019 Evoque getting much cleaner turbocharged petrol and diesel units, as well as a diesel-electric plug-in hybrid powertrain with CO2 emissions of just 45g/km.

Standalone electric model

Road Rover

Land Rover will also use 48V technology to create mild hybrid Evoques, but a pure electric version is unlikely. Instead, the first fully electric Land Rover will be a standalone, Range Rover-badged model.

Dual-touchscreen layout

Range Rover Velar dashboard

Inside, the new Evoque will have the same sort of dashboard layout as the larger Range Rover Velar. This means a high-set touchscreen, through which you access the satellite navigation, phone and stereo functions, along with a touch-sensitive lower centre console for secondary systems such as the air-con and driving modes. Apple CarPlay will be an option.

Similar size

Range Rover Evoque rear seats

Cars generally get bigger with each generation, but the new Evoque won’t be significantly longer than today’s car. Instead, Land Rover has increased rear leg room by stretching the distance between the front and rear axles, while boot space is apparently up by 10%.

Less variants

Range Rover Evoque Convertible front

The three-door version of the current Evoque was recently discontinued due to sluggish sales, and this won’t be brought back for the new car. Meanwhile, the current Evoque Convertible is set to continue for some time, with a replacement not due until the early 2020s, leaving the five-door as the only new Evoque until then.
