Range Rover updated for 2014

Land Rover is introducing new technologies and improving fuel efficiency for the 2014 Range Rover Evoque.

Fuel consumption has been improved by 11.4% and CO2 emissions have been reduced by up to 9.5%. Combined fuel consumption for the 2014 range is up to 57.6 mpg, with CO2 emissions starting from 129 g/km.

Customers ordering vehicles from the 2014 range, on sale in quarter four 2013 in the UK, will be able to specify the new ZF-9HP nine-speed automatic transmission, new driveline technologies, seven new driver assistance features and new design elements on the interior and exterior.

There are now four new colour options for the interior, four new alloy wheel styles, new style Land Rover badge on the grille, wheel centres and tailgate.

New parking technology will be available as an option on the 2014 Evoque, including Park Exit (automatically exit parallel parking bays), Perpendicular Park (to position the car centrally in parking bays), Closing Vehicle Sensing and Reverse Traffic Detection (to warn drivers of oncoming traffic). Customers will also be able to specific Lane Departure Warning, system, Traffic Sign Recognition and Wade Sensing (for those Evoque drivers wishing to tackle some rural fords).

The latest model will also get Land Rover’s InControl connectivity system which incorporates two new features – the ability to trigger an SOS Emergency Call which automatically informs the emergency services of the vehicle’s position and a tracking system which can be used if the car is stolen.

Off-road technology additions includes Active Driveline which offers ‘on-demand’ four-wheel drive, essentially switching the car to front-wheel drive on steady driving speeds above 22mph. The new system monitors vehicle dynamics and automatically reconnects four-wheel drive whenever it is needed.
