The standard 2021 Range Rover Evoque has also been upgraded with improved interior tech.
The new redesigned Range Rover Evoque debuted for the 2020 model year, but Land Rover has yet to offer an ultra-luxurious Autobiography version of the new compact SUV - until now. Just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Range Rover, a new Autobiography version of the Range Rover Evoque has been unveiled as part of the 2021 model year update. Sitting at the top of the range, it features unique exterior enhancements and a more luxurious interior than the standard model.
Based on the R-Dynamic HSE model, the exterior is distinguished by burnished copper accents and copper Range Rover lettering. The new flagship Evoque also rides on 21-inch Gloss Light Silver wheels with a contrasting Diamond Turned finish and comes with Matrix LED headlights as standard. Inside, the luxurious seats feature quilted full Windsor leather upholstery and Grey Ash veneer.
Other luxuries include a fixed panoramic roof, electrically adjustable heated steering wheel, 14-way heated and cooled electric driver memory front seats, and heated rear seats. The range-topping Rover Evoque Autobiography is available with a choice of gasoline and diesel engines, including a P300e plug-in hybrid powertrain. Power is sent to all four wheels through an automatic transmission.
Also joining the 2021 model range is the new Range Rover Evoque Lafayette Edition. Inspired by Lafayette Street located in the North of Little Italy area of New York, the new model is available in Yulong White, Seoul Pearl Silver, and Carpathian Grey. Based on the Evoque S trim, it also features 20-inch five split-spoke Gloss Dark Grey wheels with a contrasting Diamond Turned finish, a fixed panoramic roof, premium carpet mats, illuminated treadplates, and premium LED headlights.
Like the updated Land Rover Discovery Sport, the 2021 Range Rover Evoque gains a new four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine option with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology available with 162 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque or 197 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. The fuel economy is rated at 46.7 mpg, while the more powerful version of this unit enables the Range Rover Evoque to sprint from 0-62 mph in 7.9 seconds.
The 2021 Range Rover Evoque also gains the same interior technology updates as the Discovery Sport, including a new Pivi infotainment system with wireless over-the-air software updates and redesigned menus, a cabin air filtration system, a rear traffic monitor with automatic emergency braking, rear collision monitor, and a 3D surround camera. In the UK, the order books are already open for the 2021 Range Rover Evoque, with pricing starting at £32,100 ($42,210). Engine options and availability of the US version has not been announced yet, however.
