Land Rover’s new 2020 Range Rover Evoque is smart off-road and chic in the city
Land Rover took the wraps off the all-new 2020 Range Rover Evoque in November 2018, but we’re just now getting full details on the redesigned SUV with the introduction of the U.S.-spec version at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. The Evoque’s familiar design hides a bevy of tech upgrades, a more luxurious interior made with sustainable materials, and the first application of the British firm’s fuel-saving mild hybrid technology.
The 2020 Evoque doesn’t stray far from the formula that made the original model a hit all around the world. It still looks like an Evoque thanks to styling cues like oversized wheel arches, a tall belt line, and a low roof line that slopes toward the rear end. The proportions are more evolutionary than revolutionary, and the dimensions haven’t drastically changed from one generation to the next, but designers infused styling cues from bigger Range Rover Velar into the Evoque’s front and rear ends. It gets its bigger sibling’s super-cool flush door handles, too.
Land Rover will offer the 2020 Evoque with no-cost sustainable alternatives to leather such as Kvadrat and textile made with eucalyptus. In fact, the automaker claims up to 72.8 pounds of each Evoque will consist of natural or sustainable materials. But don’t worry, traditionalists: Land Rover told Digital Trends it will nonetheless continue to offer leather.
All versions of the 2020 Evoque use a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, coupled to a nine-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive. On its own, the gasoline engine makes 246 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. With the mild hybrid system, output jumps to 296 hp and 295 lb-ft. The non-hybrid Evoque will do zero to 60 mph in 7.0 seconds, while the mild hybrid does the same in 6.3 seconds, according to Land Rover. Top speeds are 143 mph and 150 mph for the standard and mild hybrid versions, respectively.
The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque hits U.S. showrooms this spring. Pricing starts at $43,645 for a base S model without the mild hybrid system, and rises to $56,795 for a range-topping R-Dynamic HSE mild hybrid. All prices include a mandatory $995 destination charge
