2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque as the vehicle avoided a serious off-road capability in favor of a mix of design and luxury. This is a bet that has borne fruit since the Evoque has attracted many customers who previously would not have considered one of the vehicles of the British brand. It is hard to believe that the Evoque is on sale since 2012, because the vehicle always looks fresh. Nevertheless, Land Rover is planning a second generation Evoque and we have just spotted a prototype.
JLR will continue to use its Ingenium family of petrol and turbodiesel engines. These engines use an all-aluminum construction and are based on a .500cc displacement range, allowing for easy scalability. Currently, the American specification Evoque is powered by the 2.0-liter Ingeninum turbo four-cylinder that develops 240 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Improving efficiency without harmful effects on energy is expected in the next generation.
This 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque test mule is camouflaged at the front, suggesting that the Jaguar Land Rover has been updated along the way. Not only that, but the air intakes seem larger, perhaps to help cool. This makes sense since the Evoque is likely to get a turbodiesel and a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Not only that, but this mule appears slightly wider than the current Evoque, suggesting an elongated track to increase the area in the engine compartment and the interior. The wheelbase seems unchanged. At the rear, the rear bumper is covered with a black coating with two holes covered with aluminum for the exhaust. The yellow warning plate is also clearly visible for high voltage electricity. Obviously, this suggests a hybrid system.
We expect the new generation Evoque to feature a slightly modified interior that reflects design and finish trends elsewhere in the JLR lineup, particularly at Range Rover. An updated infotainment system with improved usability and intuitive features would be a welcome improvement. More interior width would also be appreciated. The Evoque should remain a two-row crossover, with its folding second row bench. The loading room will probably increase if the new Evoque is actually wider than the current version. Improvements in fit and finish are likely, with less plastic and more natural and metallic finishes. Fortunately, a group of fully digital gauges is present, as are the updated buttons on the center console.
