Land Rover, Gaydon,
Warwickshire, November 10, 2010 – The exciting 5-Door version of the
all-new Range Rover Evoque makes its global public debut at the 2010
Los Angeles Auto Show on November 17, 2010.
With its stylish and sporting appearance, enhanced by extra
practicality and greater family appeal, the 5-Door Range Rover
Evoque joins the stunning coupé model to create a highly desirable
line-up that will transform the premium compact SUV segment.
Like the coupé, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque remains faithful to
the spirit of the groundbreaking Land Rover LRX concept car,
offering an innovative new interpretation of the original cross-coupé
The 5-Door Evoque also stays true to the core values of the Range
Rover brand, providing premium levels of craftsmanship, luxury,
performance and renowned Land Rover all-terrain capability, but in a
more compact package.
“The addition of the 5-Door to the Range Rover Evoque line-up
extends the appeal of our brand still further,” said Land Rover’s
Managing Director Phil Popham.
“While retaining everything that’s great about the Range Rover
Evoque coupé, this new 5-Door bodystyle will offer customers even
more choice, greater practicality, versatility and flexibility. The
launch of the Evoque in 2011 will expand and revitalise the global
appeal of the Range Rover marque."
Coupé style and 5-Door versatility
The 5-Door Range Rover
Evoque offers an exciting new interpretation of the LRX concept car
design, combining the dramatic stance and dynamic appeal of the
original cross-coupé with the enhanced functionality offered by a
“The 5-Door Range Rover Evoque has the same strong emotional appeal
as the coupé, while offering the superior versatility of a family
vehicle,” 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
versatility whilst retaining the overall essence, visual robustness
and jewel-like detailing of the coupé.”
The more capacious interior of the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque has not
been achieved by enlarging the compact footprint of the coupé model:
the overall length and width remain identical.
Like the coupé, smart design, meticulous engineering and clever
packaging has ensured that the 5-Door Evoque delivers the core Range
Rover values of luxury, refined performance and all-terrain
capability while remaining true to the spirit of the LRX concept
Impeccably crafted luxury interior
Beneath its dramatic
exterior, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque provides customers with an
impeccably crafted luxury cabin, incorporating the premium quality
materials and elegant design expected of a Range Rover interior.
Gerry McGovern continued: “The strong, simple architecture of the
cabin is evident with the bold intersection between the solid
horizontal elements of the instrument panel and the powerful
vertical lines of the centre console.”
Uniquely in the compact SUV segment, the Range Rover Evoque allows
customers to specify a lavishly appointed cabin, with soft, premium
leather and beautifully tailored, twin-needle stitching providing a
luxurious finish to almost every surface of the instrument panel,
doors and seats.
In bold contrast to the comforting aroma and supple feel of natural
hides, authentic metal finishes provide a series of striking
highlights. Cold to the touch and exquisitely crafted, the metal
finishes are a tactile and visual reminder of the superior interior
The instrument cluster, housed beneath a compact curved binnacle,
adds to the sporty, premium feel of the interior. The twin dials
have an attractive, three-dimensional form with chunky, illuminated
chaplets and needles, and are set deep in circular housings finished
with bright chrome rims.
Family comfort and versatility
Measuring 30mm taller
than the coupé model, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque adds further
space and versatility to the luxurious cabin. Rear seat passengers
benefit from over 50mm more shoulder room, along with generous
headroom which compares very favourably to traditional sporting
A full-sized glass panoramic roof enhances the sensation of space
and comfort by flooding the interior with natural light, and offers
greater headroom for all occupants.
For growing families, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque provides the
versatility and luggage space of a compact station wagon.
The rear seats, with seat belts and head restraints for three
passengers, have 60/40 folding seat squabs and are equipped with
ISOFIX child seat mounts. When required, luggage capacity can be
expanded to a substantial 1445 litres.
The driver adopts a lower seating position than in one of the larger
Range Rovers, offering a more sporting feel but retaining the
important Command Driving Position.
Dynamic handling and effortless,
Land Rover engineers
have developed the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque to provide customers
with a polished driving experience that combines dynamic and sporty
handling with responsive, effortless performance and refinement.
Murray Dietsch, Director of Land Rover Programmes, said: “The 5-Door
Range Rover Evoque has the same sporting character as the coupé. We
have focused on ensuring that the car is agile and fun to drive, so
that customers have a rewarding experience, even in day-to-day urban
driving. Advanced technologies such as MagneRide™ mean we can ensure
that this dynamic prowess does not come at the cost of top-quality
refinement or comfort.”
The car can be specified with the sophisticated Adaptive Dynamics
system which uses advanced MagneRide™ dampers to provide a
particularly good balance of confident, nimble handling and supple,
controlled ride. The suspension delivers even tighter body control,
with flatter handling and sharper responses.
As a true Range Rover, the 5-Door Evoque delivers the all-weather,
all-surface capability that is a hallmark of the brand. In common
with its larger siblings, the new model provides formidable
all-terrain potential, enhanced by the latest version of the
company’s signature Terrain ResponseTM system.
The Evoque will be the first Range Rover to offer customers a choice
between the standard, full-time, intelligent, four-wheel-drive
system, which delivers outstanding performance and traction on all
surfaces, and a low-carbon, two-wheel-drive option for further
enhanced fuel economy.
The 5-Door Range Rover Evoque shares its smooth and responsive
turbocharged powertrain line-up with the coupé model. Customers can
choose from the comprehensively updated 2.2-litre turbodiesel with
190PS or 150PS derivatives. The front-wheel-drive version combined
with the 150PS 2.2-litre engine achieves sub 135g/km* CO2.
The state-of-the-art new 240PS, 2.0-litre Si4 petrol engine combines
direct fuel injection, turbocharging and twin variable valve timing
for exceptional driveability and fuel efficiency, delivering 0-60
mph in 7.1 seconds*.
Murray Dietsch continued: “We have combined state-of-the-art
powertrains with a lightweight bodyshell and a range of low-carbon
technologies to deliver fuel efficiency which is outstanding for a
Commitment to sustainability
With the same compact
footprint and advanced technologies as the coupé model, the 5-Door
Range Rover Evoque reinforces Land Rover’s commitment to
environmental sustainability. The Evoque is positioned as the
smallest, lightest, most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever.
The new car’s greener credentials stem from a comprehensive approach
to reducing its environmental impact throughout the product
lifecycle, from development and manufacturing, through to customer
use and end-of-life recycling.
While the Evoque offers the premium luxury and performance customers
expect from a Range Rover, it also demonstrates levels of efficiency
and responsible design that make it one of the most sustainable cars
in its class.
Key product innovations that drive its greener performance include:
• Compact size – at
4350 mm, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque is 430 mm shorter than a
Range Rover Sport
• Lightweight technologies – advanced materials used throughout
the body and chassis
• Efficient powertrain – state-of-the-art petrol and diesel
engines, with high-efficiency features such as direct injection
• Low CO2 technologies – including electric power-assisted
steering (EPAS), smart regenerative charging and optimised
• Availability of front-wheel-drive – reducing weight and
minimising driveline losses
• Recycling and re-use – maximising use of sustainable and
recycled materials, plus optimising end-of-life recyclability
The result is a Range
Rover that sets new standards in the premium compact SUV segment for
fuel economy and CO2 emissions, with the two-wheel-drive diesel
5-Door model capable of an exceptional sub 135g/km* CO2.
Land Rover designers and
engineers have developed a host of distinctive and innovative
features, to ensure the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque stands out from
Lighting plays a big part in the Range Rover Evoque’s distinctive
appeal. First to catch the eye is the powerful signature graphic in
the front running lights, created by innovative LED light-blade
technology. A similar graphic is repeated in the LED rear lights,
with their jewel-like 3D petal design.
Approach the car at night and you will also see a bold vehicle
graphic alongside the front doors, illuminated by the ‘puddle
lights’ that shine from the mirrors.
More special touches greet you when you enter the car. The interior
displays come to life with a choreographed animated start-up
sequence, while the rotary auto shifter completes the ‘greeting’ as
it rises silently into the driver’s hand.
LED ambient lighting provides sophisticated and precise illumination
within the cabin; a range of colours can be chosen by the driver to
suit their mood. Select Dynamic mode, however, and a sporting red
colour scheme fills the interior as well as the instrument dials and
Completing the range of features, the first panoramic roof ever
fitted to a Range Rover can be specified, providing an all-round
vista which helps to make every journey a special occasion.
The 5-Door Range Rover Evoque follows the coupé model by offering
customers the choice of three main vehicle design themes, each of
which has its own distinctive character, exterior treatment and
carefully co-ordinated interior package. The three themes are:
• Pure – combining the stunning concept-car exterior with a stylish,
clean interior in neutral colours to highlight the pure, simple
forms of the cabin architecture. Soft-touch, wrapped materials on
the major surfaces contrast with the real-metal brushed aluminium
• Prestige – ultimate Range Rover luxury, combining a bespoke
exterior that includes unique, 19-inch wheels and sparkling metallic
details with an indulgent interior that is almost entirely
leather-wrapped. Luxurious duo-tone colour schemes are embellished
by premium leather, twin-needle stitching and real wood and metal
• Dynamic – bold exterior with 20-inch wheels and unique bumpers,
sills, grille and tailpipes for a more assertive, confident stance.
Contrasting roof and spoiler colour is a no-cost option, while the
premium sports interior offers a darker environment with splashes of
bright contrast colour, together with perforated leather seats and
unique sports detailing.
Packed with premium technologies
Like the coupé model,
the 5-Door Evoque benefits from the same comprehensive selection of
the latest technologies as the larger Range Rovers, in terms of
controls, connectivity, comfort and convenience for all occupants.
From the driving wheel, the Range Rover Evoque is distinguished by a
carefully conceived system of controls and displays that combines a
stylish, uncluttered layout, state-of-the-art functionality and
class-leading ease of use.
At the heart of the control system is Range Rover’s much-acclaimed,
eight-inch, high-definition touch-screen display with its crisp
graphics and simple, intuitive menu structure. The display is
available with the innovative dual-view technology, so that driver
and passenger can view completely independent content.
Tech-savvy customers get the connectivity they demand with a
comprehensive package that includes Bluetooth hands-free mobile
phone use and audio streaming, plus a range of USB and auxiliary
inputs for iPods and other portable devices.
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.

Phil Popham said: “The launch of the Range Rover Evoque is a

groundbreaking car brings new excitement and relevance to the marque,
but remains true to the values of premium luxury and performance
that have made Range Rover such an enduring success story over the
past 40 years.”
