2021 Range Rover Evoque: What’s new
One of the biggest updates to the 2021 Evoque is under its hood, where it has benefitted from a more powerful diesel engine. It’s still the 2.0 litre, four-cylinder Ingenium diesel mill, but it now develops 204hp - up from 180hp, although the torque remains unchanged at 430Nm.
Meanwhile, the 2.0 litre Ingenium petrol engine has been carried over unchanged and continues to produce 250hp and 365Nm of torque. Both engines come mated to an 9-speed automatic gearbox and are offered with all-wheel drive as standard.
The other notable upgrades are to the interior of the SUV. The 2021 Evoque gets JLR’s latest Pivi Pro infotainment system. Other new feature additions include a new 3D surround camera system (it previously only had a rear-view camera), a PM 2.5 filter for the cabin air ionisation system and wireless device charging with phone signal booster.
Land Rover has also introduced a new dual-tone Deep Garnet / Ebony interior color scheme on the Evoque for the first time with this 2021 update.
