Land Rover has built the Evoque based on the same platform as the LRX concept with no change whatsoever.

The Evoque has been offered as Land Rover’s first front-wheel drive vehicle. Concerns for the environment have also gone into its making with efforts having been undertaken to snip CO2 emissions below 130g/km on the fwd, diesel version that comes powered by a Ford-PSA-sourced 2.2 TD. The London unveiling saw the three-door Evoque, and it is being said that a five-door version will soon come through.

Showcased as an exclusive, cosmopolitan, cross-continental and sophisticated model, the Evoque will see its world debut at the Paris Motor Expo that gets underway on September 30, this year. UK dealerships are expected to see the arrival of the Evoque, starting summer next year. Likely to sport a £30k-plus price tag in the UK, Land Rover will be offering the Range Rover Evoque in two- and four-wheel drive options.

What do you folks think? We’re completely SOLD!
