Range Rover EVOQUE Hits 1,000 Order Mark To Be No.1 Selling Sports Luxury SUV In Malaysia
Just a few short months since its first showing in Malaysia, the EVOQUE has already taken in 1,000 orders. This send the competition scurrying into the broad room to re-strategies their SUV pricing and package. The EVOQUE features lightweight construction techniques and offers the choice of a front-wheel drive variant. A new range of state-of-the-art petrol and diesel engines comes with direct injection and stop-start. The Range Rover EVOQUE also adopts low CO2 systems such as Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) and is built to maximize end of life recyclability.
The cabin of the Range Rover EVOQUE is lavishly appointed with premium quality materials and an elegance befitting of a Range Rover interior. There is soft, premium leather and beautifully tailored, twin-needle stitching providing a luxurious finish to almost every surface of the instrument panel, doors and seats. A full-sized glass panoramic roof enhances the sensation of space and comfort by flooding the interior with natural light, and offers even greater headroom for all occupants. For growing families, the EVOQUE 5-Door provides the versatility and luggage space of a premium station wagon. The rear seats, with seat belts and head restraints for three passengers, have 60/40 folding seat squabs and are equipped with ISOFIX child seat mounts. When required, luggage capacity can be expanded to a substantial 1445 litres.
Drivers who take their EVOQUE off-road will be reassured to know that, in addition to extremely generous ground clearance, the car has better breakover and departure angles than other compact SUVs.
The EVOQUE is the 1st Range Rover to offer customers a choice between a full-time four-wheel-drive system, which delivers outstanding performance and traction on all surfaces, and a low carbon, front-wheel-drive option for further enhanced fuel economy. The Range Rover EVOQUE’s formidable all-terrain potential is enhanced by the latest version of the company’s signature Terrain ResponseTM system. A new 240PS, 2.0-litre Si4 petrol engine combines direct fuel injection, turbocharging and twin variable valve timing for exceptional driveability and fuel efficiency.
The Evoque is the first Range Rover to offer breathtaking new sound systems developed in partnership with the high-end audio specialist Meridian. The premium Meridian offering is an 825W, 17-speaker system that delivers the ultimate in surround-sound performance.
