Land Rover took a gamble with the Variety Rover Evoque in that the vehicle avoided major off-roading ability in favor of a mix of style and luxury. It’s a gamble that’s settled as the Evoque has brought in lots of clients that formerly wouldn’t have actually thought about among the British marque’s vehicles. It’s difficult to think the Evoque has actually been on sale since 2012, as the vehicle is still looking and feeling fresh. Nevertheless, Land Rover is preparing a second-generation Evoque and we’ve just identified an early test mule for the vehicle.
There are some brand-new intakes in the front bumper while at the rear we see some makeshift panels. The layout of the controls in the cabin are the same from the present model, though the majority of the real controls are test units. The platform for the new Evoque is Land Rover’s LR-MS platform found in the existing Evoque as well as the Discovery Sport. Expect the platform to be upgraded for the brand-new Evoque with lighter products and alternative powertrain capability.
It doesn’t appear that there will be any considerable change when it pertains to the size of the brand-new Evoque, which makes sense as Land Rover has actually simply added the Range Rover Velar to fill the wide space in between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport. We’ve likewise heard that an all-new model could be included listed below the Evoque.
JLR (Jaguar Land Rover) will continue utilizing its Ingenium engine household of gas and turbodiesel engines. These engines use an all-aluminum construction and are based upon a.500-cc displacement period, enabling simple scalability. Presently, the U.S.-spec Evoque is powered by the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder Ingeninum, makings 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. Enhancement to effectiveness without any ill impacts to power are expected in the next generation.
A turbodiesel version of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder is also available, though only beyond the U.S. Thanks to Volkswagen’s Dieselgate scandal, the EPA has been cracking down on diesels and their emissions. This makes it harder for automakers to get correct clearances to offer diesels.
The very first prototypes for the new Evoque should begin evaluating late this year or early next. Currently, we’re anticipating the vehicle on sale in 2019, as a 2020 model.
