Land Rover launches Evoque in India

Land Rover has launched the Range Rover Evoque coupé and five-door SUV versions in India at a starting price of Rs. 56.91 lakh (all prices on-road Mumbai).

The three-door Evoque, retailing at Rs. 72.08 lakh, is only available in the top-end Dynamic trim with a 2.0-litre, 237bhp turbo-petrol. The five-door SUV will be offered in three trims — Pure, Prestige and Dynamic — and a 2.2-litre, 187bhp common-rail, turbo-diesel. Both engines are mated to a six-speed auto and power all four wheels.

The five-door Pure, priced at Rs. 56.91 lakh, is the base version but is quite well equipped. Standard features are Range Rover's Terrain Response off-road system, cruise control, a fixed panoramic glass roof, Xenon headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless go, climate control, electric adjust front seats, leather seats, paddle-shifters, 8-inch touch screen, Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming and an 11-speaker Meridian audio system.

The Prestige variant gets a luxury interior and exterior styling kit, 18-inch alloy wheels, premium leather seats, contrast-painted roof and keyless entry. Priced at Rs. 64.73 lakh, the Dynamic variant comes with everything the Pure and Prestige have, along with a sporty exterior and interior styling kit and perforated leather seats.

There are no plans to introduce the front-wheel-drive Evoque in the near future.
