Top 5 new features of India-bound 2019 Range Rover Evoque

We still don't are unsure if plug-in hybrid will be introduced for 2020 Evoque. Past year the auto was Jaguar Land Rover's No. 2 seller after the Discovery Sport with global sales of more than 100,000. Not quite, but the all-new Range Rover Evoque comes with a nifty new feature that Land Rover calls Clear Sight Ground View. It basically looks like a mini Range Rover Velar, and that's particularly because of the lamp graphic of the super-slim Matrix LED headlamps, the new radiator grille design, the front bumper blades with copper-coloured detailing, the flush door handles, the slimmer rear combination lamps and the striking black accent covering the width of the rear. The new Evoque sports the same wide shoulders, rising window line, and small dimensions, but will (at least initially) skip convertible and three-door "coupe" formats for just the five-door Velar lookalike above.

Gamma engines of the new Evoque will consist of petrol and diesel "turbocheetah" family Ingenium, and moderate hybrid powertrain. Land Rover claims that the Kvadrat wool blend option uses the equivalent of 53 500ml plastic bottles throughout the vehicle. From launch, buyers will be able to opt for a 48-volt mild- hybrid version. At speeds below 17km/h (11mph), the engine will shut off while the driver applies the brakes.

The new 2020 Range Rover Evoque can be expected sometime in 2019, probably in spring or even summer.

We've got all of the key points on the new vehicle here, and a massive gallery full of images.

JLR's average European emissions are now at 178 g/km, the company said earlier this year.

Played an excellent, mature knock to be the flawless foil for Maxwell and help steer Australia out of trouble with a 19-ball 33. Stoinis soon joined the party by first removing new man Krunal Pandya (2) and then Karthik to end all hopes of an Indian win.

The British marque has finally launched the new 2020 Evoque while the quirky SUV in its latest avatar seems to have lost some character. Prices start from $64,640 (excluding on-road costs). The top diesel and gasoline units scratch the Two-ton mark; powerful for a vehicle that is significantly below 4.50 meters. Indeed, the Evoque is aimed squarely at these types of folks, with Land Rover chief design officer Gerry McGovern talking at length during the celebrity-studded event about courting people who don't need such a model but want one anyway.

Underneath the skin, the Evoque should ride on an updated version of the current model's D8 platform, which also serves as the basis of the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Jaguar E-Pace.

It did also give us a chance to try out the new ClearSight tech.

ClearSight Ground View (demonstrated in the video below) is the realisation of the Transparent Bonnet technology previewed at NYIAS 2014. These variants are equipped with a 48V mild-hybrid system. Feature highlights include the twin touchscreen Touch Pro Duo system (featuring new, faster software), 16-way seat controls and cabin air ionisation.

On the safety front, even the entry-level trim comes with a backup camera, lane keep assist, emergency braking, cruise control and speed limiter, front and rear parking aid, as well as Driver Condition Monitor.
