The new generation is on the way. The new 2020 Range Rover Evoque was already teased. Unfortunately, we can’t say too much, since the model we get from the Jaguar Land Rover company is a wire sculpture. However, that is enough for many enthusiasts to make their own renderings. Also, from spy photos of the previously spotted crossovers, we can say there will be a lot of similarities with Range Rover Velar.
The 2020 Range Rover Evoque will keep its dimensions and it is still in the subcompact luxury class. The level of premium features varies, depending on the trim level. The coolest features are coming with Autobiography version. Well, there are also few other trims coming back for the 2020 year model. Speaking of coolness, we must mention the most distinctive version of the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque – convertible. You won’t see cabrio crossovers so often, and when you do, that will mostly be Evoque. We are still waiting for the Hyundai Santa Fe to officially introduce its convertible model.
2020 Range Rover Evoque Release Date
The new 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque expects the presentation by the end of November. However, the crossover is not entering production immediately. We can see spy photos showing unfinished vehicle. There is a lot of work ahead of designers and engineers and the next-gen 2020 Range Rover Evoque as a production model will be officially unveiled during 2019.
Since the crossover is entering the new generation after 12 years, fans must be ready for a price jump. Whatsoever, to stay competitive, British carmaker will have to be cautious. Mercedes-Benz GLA Class, BMW X1, and Volvo XC40 are competitors which are already cheaper than Range Rover Evoque. So, the new vehicle is not going to cost over $45,000. Buyers can upgrade their ride with available trim levels and packages. If you are after Autobiography version, be ready to splash more than $70k for your favorite ride.
2020 Range Rover Evoque Engines, Hybrid
In less than two weeks we will know more about the 2020 Range Rover Evoque. But, we doubt the JLR will release a full specs sheet for their new crossover. Even if they don’t do that, experts are sure the crossover will carry the same engine as before. In the USA, Evoque uses two different tunings of a 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost unit. Depending on setup, it can crunch 240 or 285 hp. Also, torque level raises from 250 pound-feet to 295 lb-ft. Autobiography and HSE Dynamic models are using higher output version.
A nine-pace gearbox is sending power to all wheels. Full-time AWD is standard for predecessors, so it will be for 2020 Range Rover Evoque. Combined, the new model will return around 25 mpg. Highway mileage will reach 30 mpg. During urban cruising, expect the efficiency to drop to 22 or 23 mpg.
Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is very capable to tow. Its rating is 3,300 pounds. You will hardly find any other subcompact or even larger crossover in premium class that can pull so much. European buyers already got used to this thanks to diesel models available in this part of the world. In other markets, we will find 2020 Range Rover Evoque with 2.0-liter diesel unit. Also, a 2.2-l engine is available for the UK buyers.
The company also plans to add a hybrid engine to the lineup. Well, where to start but from the smallest vehicle? With it, the 2020 Evoque will return superb fuel economy, probably over 35 mpg combined. Engineers are going to drop a turbocharger and the petrol unit would get a support from an electric engine. This is still a far-fetched story, but still possible, if not for the 2020 model, then for 2021 or 2022.
2020 Range Rover Evoque Changes
Wire sculpture is not telling too much. Neither do spy photos. However, few things are certain. The new 2020 Range Rover Evoque will carry the same grille as the Land Rover Range Rover Velar. Similar redesign we expect on headlights and bumper. Side and rear of the crossover are covered by heavy panels, so it is impossible to find out what is under this camo.
We couldn’t peek into the cabin of the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. But, fans can be sure that the interior is bringing a lot of updates. First, the seating layout could be revisited. Also, the complete dashboard can expect a new look. Well, the first generation of the Evoque lasted for 12 years, and some parts are still original. The vehicle saw some updates over the years, but this will be the first big overhaul for the Range Rover Evoque.
Top of the class model in the 2020 Range Rover Evoque will be Autobiography. Again, as for its predecessors. Besides that, a high-end version will also be HSE Dynamic. Premium leather, navigation, and Bose audio are taking care of maximum comfort. Also, the Autobiography crossover will offer the most safety features.
