Range Rover released details of a new version of the Evoque they are going to unveil at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. It’s not a new model as such, but a performance-focused special edition of the car with more power and more dynamic handling. It is called the Evoque Autobiography Dynamic.
The name’s a mouthful, but then the car has a lot of substance. The meat of the Autobiography Dynamic package is a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine boosted to 285 PS and over 400 Nm of torque – an increase of 45PS and 60Nm. It comes with a 9-speed ZF transmission and Active driveline four-wheel-drive system, both tuned for sharper responses and improved agility.
To cope with its new-found performance, Rang Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic is fitted with Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVB), as well as larger 350mm front brake discs. With all this fancy stuff, the Dynamic should deliver the best of both worlds: a sporty drive on the road, and decent capabilities off it.
Visually, the Evoque Autobiography Dynamic comes with revised styling featuring a new premium grille design, lower front valance, jewel-like headlights and tail lamps and 20-inch forged alloy wheels. There is also a new color called phoenix orange. Inside, you get premium leather available in six colors, and sports or premium climate seats in four colors, plus a couple of embossed logos.
The Dynamic also excels in terms of technology features, boasting smartphone integration and an infotainment system with Land Rover InControl Apps.
