Interior photographed and it shows a heavily Velar influence
The interior of the next-generation Range Rover Evoque has been spied for the first time, while the exterior has revealed a few more of its secrets.
The new car’s cabin seems to be heavily influenced by the Velar. Like the bigger vehicle, the new Evoque has a tilt-adjustable capacitive touchscreen for the infotainment system, and a black-panel display for the climate control system.
Unlike the Velar, the Evoque is fitted with a more traditional style of transmission shifter. Ahead of the driver there’s a fully digital instrumentation area.
In terms of exterior camouflage, the latest Evoque prototype seems to be wearing almost the same amount as the vehicle spied at the beginning of the year, but this car does have production-ready grille and side sills fitted.
Range Rover has also taken away the panels which had previously hidden the car’s lower air intakes from view.
Stylistically, the new Evoque is clearly an evolution of today’s car. While the model line may have begun as a three-door model, the second-generation Evoque will not feature that body style. A convertible is still a possibility, though.
Under the skin, the new Evoque will use an updated version of the D8 architecture, which is also employed by the Jaguar E-Pace, Land Rover Discovery Sport, the current Evoque, and the upcoming Tata Harrier.
We expect the new Evoque to be powered by a selection of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain likely to be added to the range at some point in the future.
