TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - The exciting five-door version of the all-new
Range Rover Evoque five-door is being shown in Canada for the first
time at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto.
With its stylish and sporting appearance, enhanced by extra versatility,
the Range Rover Evoque five-door joins the stunning coupe model to
create a highly desirable line-up that will define the premium compact
"This is a highly relevant and contemporary vehicle that will suit the
modern needs of Canadian customers," said Jaguar Land Rover Canada
President, Lindsay Duffield. "While retaining everything that's great
about the Range Rover Evoque coupe, this new five-door bodystyle will
offer customers even more choice, greater versatility and flexibility.
The launch of the Evoque in 2011 will expand and revitalize the global
appeal of the Range Rover brand."
The Range Rover Evoque five-door reinforces Land Rover's commitment to
environmental sustainability. The Range Rover Evoque is positioned as
the smallest, lightest, most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever. It
features lightweight construction techniques and a new state-of-the-art
gasoline engine that comes with direct injection.
This five-door version offers an exciting new interpretation of the LRX
concept car design, combining the dramatic stance and dynamic appeal of
the original cross-coupe with the enhanced functionality offered by a
"The Range Rover Evoque five-door has the same strong emotional appeal
as the coupe, while offering superior versatility," said Land Rover
Design Director, Gerry McGovern. "The key lines remain intact - the
dramatic rising beltline, muscular shoulder running the length of the
car, and the distinctive taper to the floating roofline - but with a
slightly higher rear roof. The finished vehicle offers impressive
levels of space and flexibility whilst retaining the overall essence,
visual robustness and jewel-like detailing of the coupe."
Measuring 30mm (1.18 inches) taller than the coupe model, the Range
Rover Evoque five-door adds further space and versatility to the
luxurious cabin. Rear seat passengers benefit from over 50mm (1.97
inches) more shoulder room, along with generous headroom, which
compares very favourably to traditional sporting saloons. When
required, luggage capacity can be expanded to a substantial 1445 litres
(51 cubic ft).
A full-sized glass panoramic roof enhances the sensation of space and
comfort by filling the interior with natural light, and offers even
greater headroom for all occupants.
On the open road, the Range Rover Evoque five-door offers a polished
driving experience that combines dynamic and sporty handling with
responsive, effortless performance and refinement.
The available Adaptive Dynamics system with advanced MagneRide™ dampers
provides an exceptional balance between a supple, controlled ride and
sharper handling responses. Drivers who take their Range Rover Evoque
off-road will be reassured to know that, in addition to generous ground
clearance, the car has aggressive breakover and departure angles.
The Range Rover Evoque five-door shares its turbocharged powertrain with
the coupe model. The state-of-the-art gas engine offers smooth and
responsive power, delivering 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds*, blending
four-cylinder efficiency with six-cylinder performance.
The new 240bhp*, 2.0-litre Si4 gasoline engine combines direct fuel
injection, turbocharging and twin variable valve timing for exceptional
driveability and excellent fuel efficiency,
The Evoque is the first Range Rover to offer breathtaking new sound
systems developed in partnership with the high-end audio specialist
Meridian. The premium Meridian offering is an 825W, 17-speaker system
that delivers the ultimate in surround-sound performance.
Other features available to Range Rover Evoque customers include:
Surround Camera System with five digital cameras, including a reversing
Hard drive navigation system
Rear seat entertainment package, with 203mm (8-inch) video screens,
digital wireless headphones and touch screen remote control
Passive keyless entry system
Xenon adaptive headlamps with auto headlamp dipping
Heated windscreen, front seats and steering wheel
The Range Rover Evoque five-door follows the coupe model by offering
customers the choice of three main vehicle design themes, each with its
own distinctive character, exterior treatment and carefully
co-ordinated interior package.
Both coupe and five-door models of the Range Rover Evoque will be
manufactured at Land Rover's multi award-winning Halewood plant in
Merseyside, UK. The car will go on sale in more than 160 markets
worldwide, with Canadian deliveries to 22 dealers across the country
from Fall 2011.
