The popular Range Rover Evoque has just be unveiled at the 2011 Australian International Motor Show in Melbourne. The Range Rover Evoque was first unveiled to the world at the 2010 Los Angles Auto Show, but to see it here in the flesh, it’s quite something.

Like most cars, it looks a lot better in the metal. It has a certain James Bond/stainless steel element to it. It’s suave, modern and quite practical. It also comes in two and four-door forms, so it suits a somewhat broader spectrum of the market.

There’s a range of petrol and diesel engines, including a 2.0-litre EcoBoost Si4 engine producing 177kW, or a TD4 2.2-litre turbo diesel producing 110kW or 140kW, depending on the trim level. With prices starting out as little as $53,395, the Evoque is sure to sell like hotcakes when it hits the market later this year.

The Evoque will be available in three different trim levels; the Pure, Dynamic and Prestige. Each of them present a slightly different personality and come with varying levels of equipment. Standard features include, at minimum, a five-inch TFT Driver Information Centre colour display, Bluetooth, climate control, as well as parking sensors and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Pricing for each model is as follows:

TD4 110kW six-speed Manual 4WD

  • TD4 Pure six-speed Manual 4WD – $53,395
  • TD4 Dynamic six-speed Manual 4WD – $66,895
  • TD4 Prestige six-speed Manual 4WD – $68,895

SD4 140kW six-speed Manual 4WD

  • SD4 Pure six-speed Manual 4WD – $57,395
  • SD4 Dynamic six-speed Manual 4WD – $70,895
  • SD4 Prestige six-speed Manual 4WD – $72,895

Si4 177kW six-speed Automatic 4WD

  • Si4 Pure six-speed Automatic 4WD – $60,395
  • Si4 Dynamic six-speed Automatic 4WD – $73,895
  • Si4 Prestige six-speed Automatic 4WD – $75,895

The show runs until July 10.
