As expected, the three-door Range Rover Evoque has a new sibling in the form of a five-door version.
You can check out all the specification details in our news article on the launch, but here on the blog we thought we’d show you a few more images from the Land Rover vault of its new five-door model.
As you can see, the similarities with the three-door model are obvious. However, the roof line doesn’t dip as low as the coupe version on the five-door model to make way for the extra doors.
Inside, this translates to about 40mm extra head room for passengers and 50mm extra shoulder space for passengers.
Land Rover is aiming the five-door Evoque at families with a couple of children who need easier access to the rear seats and a bit more luggage space.
It makes sense too, because although the three-door model is stylish, luxurious and relatively frugal, it really is aimed at young, single or childless females who want a luxury SUV for driving around the city.
The five-door model is similarly styled for city driving, with low-CO2 emissions, lightweight materials and more compact dimensions than the standard Range Rover.
In fact, despite the extra doors, the Evoque five-door retains the length and width of the coupe, an impressive feat given the increased practicality.
And it isn’t just for city driving, because although two-wheel versions are expected to be popular because of the ultra-low CO2 emissions, four-wheel versions come with Land Rover’s excellent Terrain Response system to make light work of treacherous off-road conditions.
While it remains packed full of equipment, the five-door model is expected to be priced underneath the coupe, with three trim levels adding all the bells and whistles if needed.
It will arrive in summer 2011, and is sure to be another winner for the luxury SUV manufacturer. We can’t wait to see it arrive in Perrys showrooms.
