The Evoque luxury SUV has been a huge sales success for Land Rover and nearly 10 000 units have found homes in South Africa since its launch back in 2011. Land Rover, however, is currently developing a new second-generation Evoque that will be based on an evolved version the current model’s D8 platform.
The Evoque, which represents the entry point into the Range Rover lineup, is expected to grow slightly in size which should result in increased cabin space and improved passenger comfort. Also, the new Evoque will probably inherit some styling cues from the recently-introduced Range Rover Velar, which should enhance the visual appeal of the Evoque even further.
Buyers will have a choice of front- and all-wheel drive derivatives and although there’s no word on what engines will be offered, we suspect carry-over from the current generation. There is, however, whispers of a mild hybrid powertrain being introduced as well as a plug-in hybrid version.
The new Evoque is expected to make its debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. We will keep you updated as more details emerge.
