Land Rover conducts road tests on new Evoque at the Green Hell
It appears that Land Rover has been busy of late testing out the new generation Range Rover Evoque after our spies caught a prototype being driven on the infamous Green Hell.
Based on the photos, it appears not much has changed on the prototype Evoque since we last saw it back in January. See past the camouflage and it looks like the Evoque will get an evolutionary redesign and could borrow styling cues from the all-new Range Rover Velar and Discovery. Still giving the Evoque its distinct shape, however, comes courtesy of the sloping roofline.
Also quite clear on the second-generation Evoque is its bigger size. Unlike the outgoing model, the all-new Evoque looks longer and wider. This is interesting as it could mean that an even smaller crossover may slot below the new Evoque in the near future.
Platform-wise, the second-generation model will apparently still use the same platform albiet modified to have less weight and accommodate a bigger body. Also, the revised platform could also mean that the Evoque will be available soon with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Supposedly it will consist of a 1.5-liter three-cylinder motor helped along by an electric motor.
With the three-door version recently getting axed, the all-new Evoque may only come in two body styles; the five-door hardtop and the convertible.
The all-new Range Rover Evoque is expected to make its official debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.
