Land Rover has revealed the production version of the Range Rover Evoque, the new 'baby' model that will go on sale next summer.
Unveiled at a party thrown to celebrate the Range Rover brand’s 40th birthday, the production Evoque retains most of the looks of the original LRX concept, which was unveiled as long ago as the Detroit motor show in 2008.
The switch from the concept’s Land Rover badging to a Range Rover model was a tactical one. It has allowed the firm to keep a more profitable price point on style and exclusivity grounds, without having to offer the rugged practicality associated with the Discovery and Freelander. However, this three-door version is just the start; a five-door variant of the car is also under development.
No prices for the 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.
