The recent 2020 Range Rover Evoque reviews
July 15 2019,
The all-new 2020 Range Rover Evoque offers a wide selection of models and versions as well as several enhancements including new advanced technologies like the virtual camera that can show you the exterior through the body panels. We have talked a lot about the new Evoque in other articles, but this time we wanted to take a look at recent road tests published about the new Evoque.
But first, some facts about the new Evoque and how it differs from its predecessor. A quick look at the new model gives the sense that not much has changed, but in fact, apart from the door hinges, everything on the body is new. That redesigned architecture is to accommodate two new powerplants — a plug-in and a mild hybrid system — the former unfortunately not part of this drive program.
The exterior has undergone no such radical change. Instead, the lines have been simplified even more, extenuated by flush door handles and flush glazing. The result is an even cleaner design than the first-gen Evoque, and better aerodynamics. That reductionist philosophy is carried into the new cabin also, with less switch gear and a very clean and uncomplicated dash design.
The new architecture also has given rear passengers more knee room, thanks to a slighter longer wheelbase, and the rear cargo space is also larger than the previous model’s. And there’s slick new tech in the new Evoque, including a segment first ‘ClearSight Ground View’ technology, part of the optional 360 Surround Camera system that provides visibility under the front of the vehicle for easier maneuvering. Expect that to come to all the other Range Rovers in the coming years. Driving.ca
Despite having an instantly-recognizable façade, the new Evoque is incrementally bigger, taller, and wider. Wheelbase has increased by 0.8-inches to 105.6-inches, with the overall length increased by 0.6-inches, to 172.1-inches. While the size increase may appear to be mediocre, every little bit went towards increasing legroom for the rear passengers. Admittedly, the rear isn’t spacious as one might expect from the Land Rover’s larger offerings, but at the same time, it’s not a terrible place to be either
One of the biggest changes in the 2020 Range Rover Evoque is the 48-volt mild-hybrid power system. Offered on the P300 Evoque with its 296-horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, it makes use of an electric starter/generator to recover energy as you press the brakes. The energy is stored in a small 0.2-kWh battery pack located under the floor: not enough to amount to any all-electric range, but capable of supplying additional power when you hit the gas pedal. It also allows the regular engine to shut off at speeds below 11 mph. The new P250 Evoque still gets the familiar 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, good for 246-horsepower without the 48-volt mild-hybrid system. Slashgear.com
