Special model arrives after six years of production at JLR’s Halewood plant

The Range Rover Evoque Landmark has been launched to celebrate six years and 600,000 sales for Land Rover’s most successful model.

On sale this Wednesday (May 10) priced from £39,000 in TD4 specification, the model comes in a choice of three bespoke colours - Moraine Blue, Yulong White and Corris Grey – and gets 19in alloy wheels and dark grey body trim.

Inside, there are Ebony leather seats with contrasting stitching and a brushed satin centre console surround. Technical features include a InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, on a 10.0in screen, with apps including Spotify and 4G wi-fi hotspot functionality.

There’s also a Remote Premium app for smartphone or smartwatch users that enables owners to check their car's fuel level, lock status and location, and to pre-heat or cool its interior.

Optional Touch Pro Services add real-time traffic mapping, satellite and street-level views, as well as an internet connection for news and weather information.

Spotted: Range Rover Evoque Mk2 set to use wider platform

The launch of the Evoque Landmark comes at a time when a new Evoque rolls off the factory line every 170sec, with 80% finding homes in one of 130 overseas markets.

“What makes the Evoque so special is its relevance,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s chief design officer. “The design remains modern and fresh. The Evoque is widely acknowledged to have brought a whole new youthful generation of buyers into the Range Rover brand, including more women.

“Its success was clear from the start and gave us the confidence to break new ground, which you can see with vehicles like the Evoque Convertible. This Landmark Special Edition is a celebration of six years of success so far.”

The current Evoque first went on sale in 2011. The next-generation model is expected to arrive by 2019 with a larger platform to offer more interior space.

Unfortunately, if you see one on the road it is likely to be white or grey, the unadventurous choice.

Although as common as muck, they do still catch your attention, mainly because of the angry face with the DRL's. Scowl, scowl, scowl.

..is the name pinched from the Chinese copy of Evoque called Landwind?
Do you think the Chinese will sue? hehe.

All the usual negative comments - why? Perhaps it's jealousy.

I don't particularly like the Evoque but there's no doubting it's been a massive success story for JLR and for British jobs. And one look at the residual values is enough of an indicator how much of a demand it is on the used market.

Those who continually mock cars that appear in these articles - what car do you drive?

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
