Geneva Motor Show 2014: Range Rover to debut Evoque Autobiography Dynamic

Published 18 February 2014

Land Rover is to premiere a more powerful and more dynamic version of the Range Rover Evoque at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The Evoque Autobiography Dynamic model sits at the top of the range, so expect prices to start at around £50,000.

Power comes from a 2.0-litre petrol engine producing 285PS and 400Nm of torque, linked to a nine-speed ZF automatic transmission. Land Rover promises the combination of gearbox and engine is more responsive than in previous Evoque models. To further sharpen up the car, Active Driveline all-wheel drive is installed as standard, improving traction by sending torque to the wheel where it is needed most.

The steering has been retuned to give greater precision, while the suspension has been firmed up – though Land Rover claims this has no affect on ride quality. There are also upgraded brakes with a torque vectoring system to improve cornering dynamics.

Styling has been beefed up to match the enhanced performance with a new grille design, deeper front valance, 20-inch alloy wheels and Autobiography badging. The pictured colour – Phoenix orange – debuts on the new model.

In the cabin there is leather upholstery available in a choice of six colours, plus illuminated tread plates and a choice of seats. Buyers can select either sports seats or premium climate seats, with both styles sporting Autobiography embossed headrests. There’s also a touchscreen system with support for mobile phone apps.
