The 5-Door version of the all-new Range Rover Evoque will make its global debut at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show on November 17, 2010.
With its stylish, sporting appearance, the 5-Door Evoque joins the coupe model to create a desirable line-up in the premium compact SUV segment.
Like the coupe, the 5-Door remains faithful to the spirit of the groundbreaking Land Rover LRX concept, offering a new interpretation of the original cross-coupe design.
The 5-Door Evoque also stays true to the core values of the Range Rover brand, providing premium levels of craftsmanship, performance and Land Rover all-terrain capability in a more compact package.
With the same compact footprint as the coupe, the 5-Door reinforces Land Rover's commitment to environmental sustainability. The Evoque is positioned as the smallest, lightest, most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever.
To deliver optimum efficiency, the 5-Door features lightweight construction and offers the choice of a front-wheel drive variant.
A new range of gasoline 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 coupe's exterior lines remain intact - the rising beltline, muscular shoulder running the length of the car, and distinctive taper to the floating roofline - but with a slightly higher roof at the rear.
The more capacious interior has not been achieved by enlarging the footprint of the coupe: the overall length and width remain identical.
The cabin is lavishly appointed. Customers can specify soft leather and twin-needle stitching providing a luxurious finish to almost every surface of the instrument panel, doors and seats.
Measuring 30mm taller than the coupe model, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque adds further space and versatility to the luxurious cabin. Rear seat passengers benefit from over 50mm more shoulder room, along with generous headroom.
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.
On the open road, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque offers advanced technologies such as MagneRide. With the optional Adaptive Dynamics system, the MagneRide dampers provide a balance between a supple, controlled ride and sharper handling.
Drivers who take their Evoque off-road will be reassured to know that, in addition to generous ground clearance, the car has better breakover and departure angles than other compact SUV.
The Evoque will be the first Range Rover to offer customers a choice between a full-time four-wheel-drive system and a low carbon, front-wheel-drive option for enhanced fuel economy.
The Range Rover Evoque's all-terrain potential is enhanced by the latest version of the company's signature Terrain ResponseTM system.
The 5-Door Evoque shares its turbocharged powertrain line-up with the Coupe. The diesel and gasoline engines offer smooth and responsive performance, blending four-cylinder efficiency with six-cylinder refinement.
Customers can choose between two updated 2.2-liter turbodiesel derivatives, with 190hp or 150hp.
A new 240hp, 2.0-liter Si4 petrol engine combines direct fuel injection, turbocharging and twin variable valve timing for exceptional drivability and fuel efficiency.
Both coupe and 5-Door models of the Range Rover Evoque will be manufactured at Land Rover's award-winning Halewood plant in Merseyside, UK. The car will go on sale in more than 160 markets worldwide from summer 2011.
