If you buy a Range Rover, you kind of expect it to be the pinnacle of luxury and performance. Apparently it is…until it isn’t anymore. Range Rover just revealed its new premium offerings for the Evoque – the Autobiography and Evoque Autobiography Dynamic, which raise the luxury bar once again.
With these new models comes a lot of fancy technology and apps, but under the hood is where the Evoque really shines. The 2.0L turbo of the Autobiography produces 236 horsepower, with the up-model Autobiography Dynamic cranking out 281 horses. Further, the Dynamic comes standard with an active driveline system to seamlessly engage four-wheel-drive, upgraded 350mm front disc brakes, and a tuned suspension system. Exterior styling is updated with a new grill, bumper, headlights, taillights, and 20-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, both trim levels come with luxurious swatches of leather, but only the Dynamic features illuminated doorsills. Land Rover has rolled out its new InControl Apps connectivity feature for both Autobiography trims, which allows drivers to display their smart phone apps on the vehicle’s touch screen, in the same fashion they would appear on a phone. This is a neat feature in concept, but should prove to be a difficult one to perfect in-car.
So if you’re in the market for a new sporty, CUV that oozes luxury, make it the Evoque Autobiography Dynamic. You’ll be glad you did…until they make a new one.
