2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Overview

This year marks the arrival of brand-new 2020 Range Rover Evoque, which features improvements all around.

The 2020 Evoque is a 5-door model with the same tall windowsill, sloping roofline, slim exterior lights, and giant wheel wells as its predecessor. It also features smoother edges and a sleeker design than last year’s model, offering a cleaner look. In the First Edition trim, you’ll also find attractive copper-colored exterior details.

Base versions of the Range Rover Evoque are motivated by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 making 246 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. Land Rover also offers a 48-volt mild-hybrid engine making 296 hp and 295 lb-ft, which is featured in the upper trims. Both systems come paired with a refined 9-speed automatic transmission. Switchable all-wheel drive (AWD) and Terrain Response 2 both come standard. Additionally, the Evoque can now ford up to 23.6 inches of water, which is up from 19.7. As of this writing, fuel-economy figures aren't available.

Overall, the cabin is serene and minimalistic. The full-LCD instrument cluster, dual 10-inch touchscreens, and touch-based climate controls are very similar to those in the other Range Rover vehicles. And Land Rover even offers alternatives to leather, like wool and suede. It’s also improved on space thanks to a lengthened wheelbase, which yields nearly an extra inch of rear-seat space. There are 21.5 cubic feet with the 40/20/40 split-folding seats up, and 50.5 with them folded.

Trims with the gas-powered engine include S, SE, and First Edition, available only for the first year. The R-Dynamic S, SE, and HSE get the MHEV.

The Range Rover Evoque is the first vehicle to feature Land Rover’s new ClearSight Ground View technology, which utilizes a suite of cameras to project a 180-degree view of the ground onto the touchscreen to let you see through the hood when navigating tough terrain to avoid obstacles like boulders and roots. The Range Rover Evoque also comes equipped with Smart Settings, a system that utilizes artificial intelligence to learn a driver’s preferences for climate, comfort, and media and effortlessly calls them up during driving.

There’s plenty to go around on the safety front, too. Standard features include lane-keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, and driver-condition monitoring. You can then add adaptive cruise control with lane-centering. And while a reversing camera is standard, it’s aided by the ClearSight rear-view mirror, which switches from an ordinary mirror to an HD video screen of the vehicle’s rear, handy when outward visibility is compromised by cargo or passengers. The Range Rover Evoque hasn't been crash-tested.

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque took the world by storm when it debuted for 2012. This one refines the car’s successful formula with a smoother design, increased luxury, and ultramodern technology. It will compete with other luxury subcompact SUVs like the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.
