Land Rover Australia has just announced pricing for the upcoming, and highly anticipated, Range Rover Evoque sports SUV. Ranging from $53,395 to $77,395, the new Range Rover is expected to sell better than hotcakes.

The Evoque will be available in three trim levels; Pure, Dynamic and Prestige. Starting the range will be the Range Rover Evoque TD4 Pure fitted with a six-speed manual transmission and four-wheel drive available from $53,395. Standard features include a five-inch TFT Driver Information Centre colour display, climate control, Bluetooth, as well as parking sensors and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Both two-door Coupe and five-door versions will be on offer in all trim levels. Engines include the TD4 2.2-litre turbo diesel producing either 110kW or 140kW, and the new 2.0-litre EcoBoost Si4 engine developing 177kW.

The Dynamic models (sports-inclined) will come standard with body-coloured sills and bumper bars, 19-inch alloy wheels, brushed aluminium accents throughout the interior, and the same level of in-car entertainment as the Prestige (see below).

Topping off the range will be the Evoque Si4 Prestige (luxury-inclined) four-wheel drive model fitted with a six-speed automatic gearbox, available from $77,395. Standard features include high-resolution eight-inch touchscreen with an 11-speaker 380-watt Meridian Sound system, two USB ports, 19-inch alloy wheels, Oxford leather interior and adjustable mood lighting.

Deliveries are set to start in November this year, with a two-wheel drive eD4 diesel (110kW, six-speed manual) variant coming in 2012.
