Range Rover Evoque range expanded with Autobiography model

Land Rover will expand its Range Rover Evoque range in Q4 this year with an  Autobiography Dynamic model which will feature more power, sharper handling and new design features.

The new model is the most performance-focussed Evoque available with a 283bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre engine and a toque increase by 60Nm to 400Nm. The Autobiography model also features an upgraded 9-speed ZF transmission which reduces the time it takes to shift gears.

The steering of the Evoque Autobiography has been tuned and the chassis also features upgraded suspension which Land Rover says will increase agility and turn-in response.

Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVB) comes as standard and all models feature upgraded 350mm front brake discs.

New technology features include Land Rover’s InControl Apps, which lets customers display and control compatible iPhone or Android apps from their smartphone with their original look and feel from the Evoque’s touchscreen.

The Autobiography Dynamic also features a new grille design, lower front valance, jewel-like headlights and tail lamps and 20-inch forged alloy wheels. A new metallic body colour called phoenix orange also debuts across the Dynamic Evoque derivatives.

Interior features include the choice of six leather colours and premium climate or sports seat in a choice of four colours.

Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director, said: “The Range Rover Evoque has been an enormous success in the UK with its blend of bold design, luxury and compact versatility.

“Demand remains strong two years after the start of production, and with the introduction of the Autobiography Dynamic, customers have more choice and access to a new heightened level of agility.”

Land Rover has sold 270,000 Evoques since it was launched in 2011 which makes it the fastest selling Land Rover of all time.

    Still no HUD? I was looking for an alternative to my RX450H F sport, but the Evoque still doesn't come near in spec. Of course, its not available in the Lexus IS range, and only on Premium and F sport in GS and RX. Still HUD will son be available at Halfords !!!! What is up with these designers, marketing types ?
