First official pic of the five-door Range Rover Evoque released at the Paris motor show
1 October 2010

The first picture of the five-door Range Rover Evoque has been officially released by Land Rover.

Land Rover boss Phil Popham confirmed the car would be revealed in the metal later this year at a press conference at the Paris motor show today. Earlier in the week, a picture of the car taken at a pre-Paris dealer meeting had leaked onto the internet

It will be revealed at the LA motor show in mid-November.

Like the three-door model, two specs of 2.2-litre turbodiesel powerplants, with 148bhp and 187bhp, will form the bulk of sales. Both of the models will have stop-start as standard when accompanied by a manual gearbox. There will also be a petrol version, using a 237bhp variant of Ford's turbocharged 2.0-litre Ecoboost engine.

The front-drive 148bhp diesel will return 58mpg and less than 130g/km of CO2 when paired with a manual gearbox (adding two driven wheels will cost you 8mpg and more than 15g/km).

But the oil-burners and the petrol motor will also be offered with four-wheel drive and an updated six-speed auto transmission; it's controlled via the rising circular selector from the Jaguar XF.

A full-length panoramic roof will be on the list, but if you don't want glass, contrasting paint colours of lid will also be available as a no-cost option.

Inside, you can spec a dual-view TFT screen for simultaneous sat-nav and television display, and upgrade the stereo to a 1200W, 17-speaker Meridian system.

Other options include park assist, dual-zone climate control with a timer facility, a powered tailgate, adaptive headlights and a heated windscreen.

[quote Vidge 123]Just like the 3dr this car is utterly revolting![/quote] Should have gone to Specsavers. This car look stunning. I want one now! I even love the paint scheme. Think I'd go full 4x4 with the larger diesel engine and Panoramic roof. Hmmm the spec list may get expensive but I think it's worth it.

as a 3 door it at least looked a little different - as a 5, it looks little more than the tarted up Freelander that it is.
