It was planned to be unveiled at the Los Angles Auto Show later this month, but Range Rover has decided to pull the wraps off the Range Rover Evoque five-door a week early.
Sporting a new bright red colour scheme, the Evoque five-door is the same stunning design and concept as the three-door and features the same trim level options, as well as powertrain setups.
It has been confirmed that the Evoque will be powered by the 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which will be called the Si4. The new Ford engine will produce 177kW in this car which will certainly be enough power to pull the smallest Range Rover ever produced through most circumstances.
Also on option will be two 2.2-litre turbo diesel four cylinder engines. One which offers 110kW (called the TD4) and another that offers 140kW (SD4). Both engines present excellent fuel economy and low emission levels, especially the 110kW TD4 package which has recorded fuel consumption rates of 5.6L/100km whilst emitting just 145 grams of CO2 per kilometre.
We’ll bring you more details on pricing and specifications on Australian models as soon as it comes to hand. Range Rover has said it will be taking orders for the new car in mid-2011 for European buyers. Expect Australian deliveries to begin in 2012.
