LA 2010: 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Five-Door
By Brandon Turkus
November 18, 2010
Land Rover’s baby Range Rover, the Evoque, has sprouted an extra pair of doors at the 2010 LA Auto Show. The Evoque has traditionally been shown only as a three-door, but we always had a sneaking suspicion that a five-door model was in the works. It is good to see that the five-door Evoque hasn’t gained any additional size over its three-door counterpart; the length and width remain identical.
We did get a bit more information about some of the Evoque’s technical details while we were here. Both Evoques will be powered by 2.0-liter, direct-injected turbocharged four-cylinders, which Land Rover expects will scoot the Evoque to sixty in 7.1 seconds.
Land Rover expects to have the Evoque in dealerships in the Fall of 2011 with pricing starting around $45,000.
