The new Range Rover Evoque is hitting the streets of London, but not as you might expect.
Land Rover put up several wire-frame installations around London in anticipation of the new Range Rover Evoque. Timely, as the Range Rover Evoque we know now has been on sale since 2011. That’s right, Land Rover’s entry-level crossover is nearly a decade old, and it’s about time a new one emerges. To that end, the same design team responsible for creating the new Evoque also built these pieces to tease its arrival.
From the wire frames, it’s clear the basic overall shape of the original Evoque will carry over to the new model. In the spirit of newer models like the Velar, the latest Evoque will get new front and rear fascias. At the front, the grille looks a bit sleeker than before. The taillights – or at least where taillights would be on the actual car – look like they’re thinner and wrap around into the rear quarter panels. The new model still has that sloping roof design from the original model, as well.
As for powertrains or any technical specifications, Land Rover is quiet, for now. We’ll know more on November 22, so stay tuned for more updates. It’s likely the new Range Rover Evoque will retain its 2.0-liter Ingenium engine, which it shares with the Discovery Sport and the Jaguar E-Pace.
