The five-door Range Rover Evoque has been caught testing at the Nurburgring for the first time.

The five-door Evoque will sit on the same platform as the three-door model unveiled last month.

It will have shortened front doors and narrow-aperture rear doors and sales are likely to start in 2012.

Few technical details on the three-door model have been revealed, but Land Rover has confirmed that the car will be available in front-wheel drive form as well as four-wheel drive, and that some models will emit less than 130g/km of CO2.

The Evoque is being described as a "global car"; Land Rover says it will be sold in more than 160 countries. It will be made at Halewood, creating up to 1000 new jobs at the Liverpool facility.

No prices for the three-door Evoque have been released, but expect four-wheel-drive versions to start at around £35k, with front-drive models following shortly after launch at around £5000 less.

Those rear windows look tiny. Still, no doubt it will have loads of cameras and sensors pointing out of the back to help its owners in car par manoeuvres.

No one disputes that. But we don't have to like it. The fact that the surbuban masses have a lamentable lack of taste in so many areas of life is just one of the crosses that the enlightened soul has to bear!

When will people realise, the purpose of any car company is to make money, not to satisfy all the 0.05% of the market that are petrolheads, and must have a petrol V8 with RWD.

Make. Money.

That means selling high profit items to people with more money than sense. People that simply HAVE to have the latest "thing" to take Jacinta and Bambalaneesha to school in. It could be based on a 1972 Austin Princess with a 3 cylinder diesel and one wheel drive, but if that's what half a million stupid rich people want to spend £35k on, then that is what you make.
