New Range Rover Evoque is slated for June 26th Launch


Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia is inviting the public to witness the official launch of its NEW luxury SUV – the Range Rover Evoque. The car, incorporating a new design and exciting new features, will be broadcasted via its Facebook page (www.facebook.com/landrovermalaysia)  on June 26, 2020 at 11a.m.

This is the first virtual launch by Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia. Prospective buyers will be able to view and listen in to a thorough description of the car. The presenter will zoom in on individual details of the car, followed by a detailed explanation, to give viewers a good perspective of the new Evoque.

Fans of the Evoque can look forward to a new exterior design and exciting new features as well. These include a new design language, advanced driver assistance technologies, ground-breaking off-road technologies and an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system.

Among the exciting offerings in the new version is the inclusion of ClearSight technology, such as the ClearSight Rear View Mirror that transforms into an HD video screen when engaged.

Should rear visibility be compromised by passengers or bulky items, the driver can flip a switch on the underside of the mirror and a camera feed from the top of the car will display what is behind the vehicle in crisp high definition. The video screen provides a 50-degree field of vision and superior visibility in low light.

In addition, the world-first ‘ClearSight Ground View’ technology is designed to allow drivers to virtually see through the hood and under the front end of the vehicle by projecting a 180-degree view of the ground onto the vehicle’s upper touchscreen. This is useful when navigating through tight parking spaces, high city curbs or tackling rough terrains.

The new Evoque is also the first Land Rover model to feature Smart Settings, a system which uses artificial intelligence algorithms to learn a driver’s preferences. The system will then use the driver’s preference to automate comfort and driver-specific media settings throughout the drive.

Using ‘self-learning’ technology, the system also recognises the drivers from their key fob and phones and will thereby set their seat and steering column position on approach, allowing for up to eight profiles to be registered. After a few journeys, the Evoque is able to remember the driver’s preferred temperature settings, media preferences and commonly dialled numbers, depending on the time or day of the week.

Drivers will  also get to immerse themselves in the vehicle’s digital interior experience with the Land Rover InControl® Touch Pro Duo infotainment system that combines two sleek 10-inch high-definition glass touchscreens and a 12.3-inch driver display behind the steering wheel. The result is a beautiful, ‘hidden until lit’ interior filled with state-of-the-art digital interfaces.

New Evoque owners can also expect a much larger and wider luggage space which can easily fit in a folded pram or a set of golf clubs. Luggage space of 591 litres can be further increased to 1,383 litres when the flexible 40:20:40 second-row seats are folded.

More exciting features in this new Evoque include the Lane Keep Assist which is added as a new safety feature. This helps the driver to stay in lane by adding the necessary steering correction and initiating a gentle steering input to return the vehicle to its intended position.

Driver Condition Monitor technology is another added safety feature that is based on the driver’s steering inputs. Should the technology detect jerky, non-linear movements that are typical symptoms of a fatigue driver, it will automatically trigger an audible and visual warning in the instrument cluster.

The New Range Rover Evoque also features a new 2.0L Petrol Turbocharged Ingenium engine that supplies fast response to throttle demand and a more engaging drive as boost pressure is delivered nearly instantaneously. The Ingenium engine is paired with a state-of-the-art nine-speed automatic transmission.

Building on the original model’s instantly recognisable design, the new Evoque is a sophisticated evolution of the original’s distinctive coupe-like silhouette, typified by its fast roofline and rising belt line that identify the Range Rover family at first glance.

The introduction of new slim LED headlights and tail lights emphasise the vehicle’s new design language while flush door handles add to the smooth, sculpted aesthetic.

Details on pricing and variants will be announced at the launch. Interested parties can register their interest by clicking on Keep Me Informed to get updates on the launch or drop by any of Jaguar Land Rover showrooms to get up close with the new Evoque.
