And it comes with an optional mild hybrid system.
Land Rover may be sitting out the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, but the British brand has come to the Windy City with its all-new 2020 Range Rover Evoque. This is the first time the new Evoque has appeared on US soil and it will likely be a big seller for Land Rover. The new Evoque borrows styling cues from the gorgeous Velar and uses two new powertrains for the 2020 model year.
The first is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder producing 246 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. This is an increase of 9 hp and 18 lb-ft of torque compared to the outgoing car with only a minor price increase of $850.
The 2020 Evoque starts at $42,650 and includes standard all-wheel-drive with Land Rover's Driveline Disconnect System, which can disconnect the rear wheels to save on fuel. The base powertrain will be available in three trim levels including the S, SE, and First Edition.
There will also be a mild hybrid option, which adds a 48-volt system mated to a nine-speed ZF automatic transmission. This version of the Evoque produces 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque and will be followed by a plug-in version at a later time. Opting for the 48-volt system requires buyers to step up to the R-Dynamic trim, which starts at $47,595.
The top R-Dynamic HSE trim starts at $56,795 (before options), making it one of the priciest compact crossovers on the market. If you want to feel even more special, there will also be a first edition model painted in an exclusive color called Nolita Grey, starting at $56,850.
The 2020 Range Rover Evoque will arrive in dealerships in spring 2019, so you won't have to wait long to get one. We suggest getting your order in now because they will likely be hard to get when they first arrive.
