Throughout Jaguar Land Rover’s unveiling of the up to date model of its smallest Range Rover mannequin, the automaker made positive everybody knew the solely carryover elements from the not-absolutely-baked first-era mannequin have been the door hinges. This isn’t your realtor’s Evoque, JLR assures us.

Revealed in its native UK, the second-gen Range Rover Evoque — arriving subsequent yr as a 2020 mannequin — retains the tidy footprint of its predecessor whereas boosting the mannequin’s excessive-zoot trappings and know-how. It’s extra highly effective, greener, and succesful off-street than earlier than, JLR claims, and there’s not even a whiff of Ford about the factor. Beneath that hood is an engine proudly flying the Union Jack.

There’s no mistaking it as an Evoque, both, although observers will little question discover a design that’s moved in the path of the lengthier Velar. Nonetheless, the gripes hurled at the first-gen mannequin, which first appeared in 2010, weren’t styling associated. And there have been many gripes hurled, little question about it.

With the 2020 mannequin, JLR sought to right previous errors. Beneath the upcoming Evoque is a brand new platform — JLR’s Premium Transverse Structure, which affords rear-seat passengers an additional eight-tenths of an inch of legroom by way of a light wheelbase stretch. Understand that it’s the similar sized package deal as earlier than, so miracles aren’t plentiful right here. Enhancements, sure. Along with a physique that’s thirteen % stiffer than earlier than, cargo quantity expands by 6 %, to 21.5 cubic ft. Fold that rear bench down, and 50.5 cubes greet the proud Evoque proprietor.

Energy-clever, the UK-market Evoque makes use of two Ingenium 4-cylinder powerplants, every provided in three flavors. We’ll skip over the diesel choices, focusing as an alternative on the fuel-powered motors almost definitely to see service on this aspect of the Atlantic. The two.zero-liter Ingenium range begins at 197 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque, strikes as much as 246 hp and 269 lb-ft, and tops out at 296 hp and 295 lb-ft. It’s the latter two engines we’ll be seeing right here, if Jaguar’s U.S.-market XE powerplants inform us something.

Becoming a member of these two engines is a forty eight-volt delicate-hybrid system, which captures power misplaced by way of braking and coasting and shops it in an underfloor battery pack. The juice returns to the drivetrain by way of a belt-built-in starter generator, offering a lift throughout acceleration and permitting the Evoque to close down its inner combustion engine at speeds under eleven mph, although provided that the brakes are being utilized. In a yr’s time, a 3-cylinder plug-in hybrid ought to present its face.

All-wheel drive comes standard (UK drivers get a 2WD guide diesel), with a number of terrain modes to select from, although JLR gives an Auto mode for house owners who’d want the vehicle governs itself. Water fording, a chief concern for all Evoque house owners, improves with this new mannequin. You’ll now have the ability to deal with 23.6 inches of the moist stuff, up from 19.7 inches in the first-gen mannequin. Do you have to be of the adventurous sort, JLR’s floor view digital camera, which screens the area forward of and under the entrance bumper, may simply forestall your oil pan from being carried away by a jutting slab of granite.

In and out, luxurious cues abound. LED lighting fore and aft lends a up to date premium really feel, and flush door handles, whereas wholly pointless, nonetheless scream “I’ve paid for this — it’s value it!” As you’ll be able to see, the Evoque’s sprint doesn’t lack padding, nor touchscreen acreage. The twin-display setup is an non-compulsory feature, pairing two 10-inch surfaces in the middle stack with a 12.three-inch digital gauge show.

Lastly, you’ll discover each Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard package on this vehicle, permitting the Evoque to supply the similar degree of  connectivity as many generic compact sedans. What’ll a brand new Evoque set you again, you ask? The automaker isn’t telling, preferring to launch its U.S. pricing at the 2019 Chicago Auto Present.
