As we are talking about a quite fresh model, the 2021 Range Rover Evoque is not expected to come with bigger changes for the next year. The subcompact crossover has been around for almost a decade, while the current, second-generation model has been around for a little bit more than a year. That’s the main reason why we don’t expect to see this luxury crossover with more important changes for the next year. We count on the same design and features, though smaller revisions are always possible.
Of course, new standard features are always welcome, but some reports also suggest we might see some revisions under the hood. Allegedly, the company is about to update the transmission and make it faster and smoother. Other than that, we really don’t expect to see anything particular in the 2021 Range Rover Evoque. Therefore, it should hit the market sometime late in the year.
2021 Range Rover Evoque Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2021 Range Rover Evoque definitely won’t come in any particular change. We are about to see a familiar layout and dimensions that are typical for the class. Mechanically, this model has a lot in common with Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Velar, so you may presume that the ride quality is quite similar. Of course, things are a little bit louder and less smooth on the road compared to bigger siblings, but still better compared to many rivals. Still, the area where this model really shines is the off-road drive.
With a capable AWD system and a lot of off-roading aids, this model is more capable than any other compact luxury crossover on the market. It may look fancy, but we are actually talking about a quite capable machine. For the next year, new color options are possible, as well as smaller updates. Other than that, things are about to remain the same.
2021 Range Rover Evoque Interior
Although a subcompact crossover, the Evoque features a really luxurious cabin. Hi-quality materials are all around and most of them are soft to the touch. In terms of aesthetics, things are pretty typical for the brand, so you may count on a familiar dashboard design, which is most conservative, though there are some shiny details as well.
With 105.6 inches in wheelbase, you can’t expect some spectacular amount of space inside the Evoque. Still, things are a little bit better compared to the original model. This particularly refers to the second rows of seats, which now feature more legroom, though this is still a little bit tight for taller passengers. On the other side, the front seats offer all the space you need and combined with massive and supportive seats, deliver a high level of comfort.
When it comes to the cargo area, things are pretty typical for the class. You may count on about 21.5 cubic feet behind the rear seats, while the overall volume goes up to 50.5 cubic feet.
Additions in terms of standard equipment are always possible, but we don’t expect too many of them for the next year. The current model is already well-equipped in all aspects.
When it comes to comfort, all models come standard with leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seas. Additionally, you can get things like heated and massaging front seats, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, upgraded leather upholstery etc.
In terms of tech features, all models come with things like a 10-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a navigation system, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a six-speaker stereo. Higher trims also come with additional touchscreen, digital instrument cluster, a head-up display, sunroof and many more upgrades.
2021 Range Rover Evoque Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, base models should continue with the same powertrain in the offer. Base models will carry on with a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which is good for about 246 horsepower. That’s already a quite decent amount of power that ensures strong dynamics and overall performances. Still, if you want something peppier, there is a hybrid version of the same engine, which is good for about 296 horsepower.
Despite good driving dynamics, a big complaint goes to fuel economy. You may count on about 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, which are subpar ratings for the class. Models with hybrid powertrain gain 1 mpg both in the city and on the highway.
As we already mentioned, there’s a chance to see some revisions on the transmission for the next year.
2021 Range Rover Evoque Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no significant changes to come for the next year, we expect to see 2021 Range Rover Evoque sometime late in 2020. The current model starts at around 43.000 dollars and we don’t expect changes in the future.
