Range Rover Evoque Diesel Class Best Efficiency At 5.7L/100km
The Range Rover Evoque stands out from the crowd with gorgeous looks and now with its class best fuel economy of just 5.7L/100km. The Evoque leaves the showroom with xenon headlamps and chiseled handsome looks that has many yearning to own one.
The interior displays come to life with a choreographed animated start-up sequence, while the rotary auto shifter completes the ‘greeting’ as it rises silently into the driver’s hand (Just like in the Jaguar XF). LED ambient lighting provides sophisticated and precise illumination within the cabin; select Dynamic mode, and a sporting red colour scheme fills the interior as well as the instrument dials and cluster display.
Ignite the new diesel engine and there is only a slight rumble that invades the cabin serenity. Yes, a diesel premium SUV from EVOQUE. Surprising us, make no mistake, it is as sporty as its petrol siblings. It’s ready to excite us as we let the turbocharged diesel sing its best song as we reach for the upper limits of the revolution range in 2nd and 3rd gear just shy of limiting out the power band on 6th gear. There is no shortage of trust as we increase our progress and there is little hesitation from the smooth revving diesel engine. The 6-speed gearbox is smooth and intense with negligible shift action. Long sweeping corners are taken with ease with effectively no body roll or movement felt from inside the cabin with the chassis remaining very flat. All this is done while the Evoque diesel sips just 5.7-liters of diesel on a 100 kilometer drive. This is almost hybrid like efficiency in a stylish SUV.
