The Range Rover Evoque is one of the iconic SUV to ever reach the market. For 2020, the Evoque is will be arriving with a new design and new feature. Expect a new design language, advance driver assistance technologies, off-road capabilities and an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system.
One of the most exciting feature of the new Evoque, it would be the ClearSight rear view mirror thact can be turn into a HD video screen when engaged. This system allow the driver to see the rear if their rear view is being blocked by passengers and bulky items. In order to do that, the driver just need to flip a switch under the centre rear view mirror, they will be able to get a 50-degree field of vision and superior visibility in low light through a camera mounted on top of the car.
On top of that, the world-first ‘ClearSight Ground View’ technology is designed to allow drivers to virtually see through the hood and under the front end of the vehicle by projecting a 180-degree view of the ground onto the vehicle’s upper touchscreen. This is useful when navigating through tight parking spaces, high city curbs or tackling rough terrains.
Moving on to the AI side, the new Evoque is the first Land Rover model to receive Smart Settings, a system which uses artificial intelligence algorithms to learn a driver’s preference. The system will then use the driver’s preference to automate comfort and driver-specific media settings specific to the driver.
In order to achieve this, the system uses ‘self-learning’ technology which recognises the drivers from their key fob and phones and will thereby set their seat and steering column position on approach. This system will allow up to eight different profiles to be register into the system. After a few journeys, the Evoque will automatically remember the driver’s preferred temperature settings, media preferences and commonly dialled numbers, depending on the time or day of the week.
To further enhance the driving experience, the new Evoque comes with digital interior experience with the Land Rover InControl® Touch Pro Duo infotainment system that combines two sleek 10-inch high-definition glass touchscreens and a 12.3-inch driver display behind the steering wheel.
Luggage space is now larger and wider measuring in at 591L with seats up. When the flexible 40:20:40 second-row seats are folded, you’ll be able to get up to 1,383L of cargo area.
For safety, the new Evoque now comes equipped with Lane Keep Assist. This helps the driver to stay in lane by adding the necessary steering correction and initiate a gentle steering input to return the vehicle to its intended position.
Driver Condition Monitor technology is also another added safety feature that is based on the driver’s steering inputs. Should the technology detect jerky, non-linear movements that are typical symptoms of a fatigue driver, it will automatically trigger an audible and visual warning in the instrument cluster.
To power the new Evoque, there are the new 2.0L Petrol Turbocharged Ingenium engine that is responsive towards throttle input from the driver by providing sufficient d boost pressure when needed. The Ingenium engine is now paired with a new 9-speed automatic transmission.
Looks wise, the new Evoque is based on the original model’s recognisable design. The design of the new Evoque is an evolution of the original’s distinctive coupe-like silhouette, typified by its fast roofline and rising belt line that identify the Range Rover family at first glance.
The introduction of new slim LED headlights and tail lights emphasise the vehicle’s new design language while flush door handles add to the smooth, sculpted aesthetic.
