Five-door Range Rover Evoque revealed

The coupe was revealed last year prior to a summer launch, and a five-door version has now been confirmed by the luxury SUV manufacturer.

The five-door Range Rover Evoque, as with the three-door model, comes in both two- and four-wheel drive versions – a first for the manufacturer.

Front-wheel drive models offer class-leading 135g/km of CO2 emissions with the 2.2-litre turbodiesel 150PS engine. Other engines available include a 190PS version of the diesel and a 2.0-litre Si4 petrol delivering 240PS.

As with the coupe, the five-door Evoque is made from lightweight materials, but the low, coupe-like roofline has been raised slightly to accommodate the rear doors. Headroom, rear passenger shoulder room and luggage space has all been expanded in the five-door model.

This means it is much more of a family-oriented SUV than the coupe, but inside it is just as luxurious, with all three trim levels offering leather upholstery and trim, entertainment systems in the front and rear with touch screen technology, and a top of the range sound system.

Cruise control, adaptive headlamps, heated windscreen and seats, and keyless entry are all fitted as standard in the five-door Evoque.

It is also fitted with parking sensors and blind spot information systems as well as a host of safety equipment such as airbags and ABS.

Higher trim levels such as Prestige and range-topping Dynamic add larger wheels, bespoke interiors and cosmetic touches to the exterior, depending on which specification is selected.

Land Rover’s off-road Terrain Response system is available with four-wheel drive versions, while adaptive dynamics technology improves the comfort and grip on the roads.

The five-door model will be built alongside the three-door coupe at the Halewood manufacturing plant on Merseyside and it will be sold in over 160 countries worldwide.

Range Rover Evoque prices start from £30,000 and it will be available to buy from summer 2011.
