The Range Rover Evoque, as we all know as the smallest model in the UK’s manufacturers line up being in production since 2011, and six years is a long time in the auto industry without a facelift.
The Evoque is the company’s most popular model and best seller, so it can’t allow things to linger for too long. Hence, we have new spy shots of the next generation Evoque.
Though all Land Rover products possess some reputation of off-road capabilities, buyers considering the Evoque or the soon to be released Velar care much more about style than approach and departure angles.
Based on the photos, it seems like most of the changes appear to be happening up front, but there are a few far more drastic changes lurking beneath the surface. Expect the final design to look like a scaled-down Velar, with thinner new headlights, fog lights, and a new front grille.
Rear end looks are for Velar style wrap-around taillights, and clean, flush lines. The slightly wider stance and elongated rear bumper hint at an all-new platform underneath. This may look like the current model, but there are changes afoot. Whilst it is growing slightly, don’t expect the new model to be drastically different than the outgoing version.
Expected is a new turbocharged Ingenium four-cylinder engine under the bonnet. Don’t rule out a hot SVR version down the line, as the Special Vehicles division has been working their magic throughout the green oval lineup.
