3 Variants of the much anticipated EVOQUE Launched
Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd this morning officially launched the exciting all-new Range Rover Evoque for the Malaysian market. The smallest, lightest, most fuel efficient Range Rover ever produced, the completely built-up (CBU) Evoque will be available in three variants at the following on-the-road prices (excluding insurance):
• 2.0L Petrol Coupe Dynamic Plus – RM393,888 (Peninsular Malaysia), RM397,388 (Sabah and Sarawak)
• 2.0L Petrol 5-Door Prestige – RM363,888 (Peninsular Malaysia), RM367,388 (Sabah and Sarawak)
• 2.2L Diesel 5-Door Prestige – RM353,888 (Peninsular Malaysia), RM357,388 (Sabah and Sarawak).
The 2.0L Petrol Coupe specified with the sporty Dynamic Plus design theme and the 2.0L Petrol 5-Door in luxurious Prestige theme are powered by a state-of-the-art new 240PS Si4 petrol engine that combines direct fuel injection, turbocharging and twin variable valve timing for exceptional driveability and fuel efficiency. The 2.2L Diesel 5-Door featuring the luxurious Prestige is powered by the proven 190Ps SD4 turbodiesel engine currently found in the Land Rover Freelander 2. Both the petrol and diesel engines are matched to the latest generation AW F-21 6-speed automatic transmission with a Rotary Auto Shifter.
According to Land Rover Malaysia managing director Mohd Hazem Abdul Rahman, the Evoque is one of the most important and exciting vehicles in a generation from Land Rover. Although the Evoque has successfully turned the acclaimed LRX concept into reality by making a quantum leap in Range Rover design, both the coupe and 5-Door models remain true to the brand’s core values of premium luxury and formidable all-terrain performance and combine them with dynamic and sporty handling.
Range Rover Evoque customers have a choice of petrol or diesel powerplants. Petrol models feature the new downsized 240PS 2.0-litre Si4 engine. This state-of-the-art petrol engine offers smooth and responsive power, delivering 0-100 km/h in 7.6 seconds, blending four-cylinder efficiency with six-cylinder performance.
The latest powertrain technologies – including advanced turbocharging, high-pressure direct fuel-injection and twin variable valve timing – are combined to provide outstanding driveability, with very strong bottom-end performance and an extremely broad, torquey power band.
The Si4’s highly efficient combustion system enables it to achieve significant reductions in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The compact all-aluminium four-cylinder engine is also substantially lighter than conventional engines with a similar output.
The diesel Evoque model for Malaysia features the latest 190Ps 2.2-litre turbodiesel which delivers an excellent balance of strong, high-torque performance, impressive refinement and outstanding fuel economy. The engine has been comprehensively updated to provide significantly more power, a very broad torque curve, further reduced noise levels and lower CO2 emissions.
To complement the car’s responsive on-road handling, the Evoque features a full suite of traction and stability systems that includes Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Roll Stability Control (RSC), Traction Control System (TCS), Trailer Stability Assist (TSA), Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control (HDC), Gradient Release Control (GRC) and Engine Drag torque Control (EDC).
