2021 Range Rover Evoque: Specs And Features
After the recent redesign, we are pretty sure that the 2021 Range Rover Evoque will carry on in the same way. The small crossover received a complete overhaul last year, so it would be hard to expect any particular novelty in the near future. Therefore, we count on a familiar layout, though updates in terms of standard equipment are always possible. On the other side, styling and mechanics are expected to remain untouched.
The Evoque is a solid crossover. It offers great off-road capabilities and a pretty high level of luxury, so those who are looking for a small premium SUV could find this model pretty interesting, especially because the engine offer is pretty wide. However, they should also keep in mind that this isn’t the most practical model in the class, as the cargo area is pretty tight. Anyway, the new model is expected to hit the market sometime late in the year.
2021 Range Rover Evoque Design
When it comes to base design characteristics, things will remain the same. The recent redesign was pretty interesting in this aspect, as it has brought a decent amount of changes, although many of them aren’t noticeable at the first look. More precisely, the new model rides on the company’s new PTA platform, which has brought significant improvement in terms of the overall ride quality. Also, it opened room for a variety of new powertrain options, which along with weight savings provide a notable improvement in terms of fuel efficiency.
On the other side, we didn’t see radical changes in terms of aesthetics. The new model came with a pretty similar look and the biggest changes compared to the previous generation are in detail. Some sources suggest the 2021 Range Rover Evoque Convertible for the next year, but we don’t believe this version will come once again.
Things on the inside are also about to remain the same. You may count on the same cabin layout, which offers plenty of luxury and a high level of comfort. One look at the dashboard and you can easily notice that this crossover delivers everything you would expect from a premium vehicle. Hi-quality and soft-touch materials are everywhere, while the sound insulation is amazing as well.
Leather upholstery is standard and it looks like the new model offers a little bit more legroom in the second row compared to the previous generation. However, that’s still a little bit tight for most adults. On the other side, the front row is pretty generous in space, while it’s also pretty easy to find a perfect seating position, thanks to standard power-adjustable seats. When it comes to the cargo area, you may count on about 21.5 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 50.5 cubic feet with them folded down. These are okay numbers for the class, though many rivals offer more.
It is always possible to see novelties in terms of standard equipment, but won’t don’t expect that too many things will change for the next year. Moreover, the list of standard features should remain pretty much the same. In terms of tech goodies, that would include things like a 10-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a navigation system, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a six-speaker stereo. In higher trims, you can also get a dual touchscreen setup, as well as things like head-up display, a digital instrument cluster, a Meridian stereo, satellite radio, HD Radio, and a sunroof.
When it comes to safety features, all models come standard with a rearview camera, a pre-collision warning and braking system, front and rear parking sensors, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, and a driver condition monitor, while many other things are available in higher trims.
2021 Range Rover Evoque Engines
When it comes to the North American market, there are two powertrain options in the offer at the moment. Base versions are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which delivers nearly 250 horsepower and provides pretty solid driving dynamics. You can also get a version that packs this engine with a mild hybrid system, where a total output goes up to 296 horsepower.
Some sources suggest that the 2021 Range Rover Evoque engine lineup could be expanded. This includes oil-burners as well. However, the company is still quiet on this matter, so stay reserved for now.
2021 Range Rover Evoque Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2021 Range Rover Evoque release date will be scheduled for a typical time of year, which would mean sometime in the last quarter. When it comes to the price, the current model starts at around 43.000 dollars, while the potential 2021 Range Rover Evoque Diesel would probably cost a little bit more. Key competitors are models like BMW X1, Audi Q3, Volvo XC40 etc.
