Many have been anticipating the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque for some time now. One of the smallest SUV’s on the market the Range Rover Evoque is completely redesigned with an alluring shape and a powerful hybrid option. The Evoque also gets a significant boost in power, cabin technology, and off-road ability as well as a lot more rear-seat legroom and a large cargo bay. In 2020, the Range Rover Evoque adds a new Premium Transverse Architecture which allows it to be quieter and more rigid while allowing for more high-tech features. Also new this year is a Terrain Response2 system, which is an advanced all-wheel-drive system that provides settings for Sand, Grass-Gravel-Snow, and Mud and Ruts. Accord to Land Rover South Dade (Miami, FL), the Evoque can splash through 23-inch-deep water while offering a Wade Sensing feature that employs an ultrasonic sensor that detects water depth.
Buying a base S, SE, or First Edition Evoque will get you a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that provides you with 246 horsepower and a 9-speed automatic transmission. The R-Dynamic trims get a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with a 48-volt mild-hybrid upgrade and starter-generator hybrid system.
