Land Rover reveals the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque

Earlier today Land Rover released pictures of the 5-Door version of the all-new Range Rover Evoque, which makes its global public debut at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show next week (November 17, 2010).

Measuring 30mm taller than the coupé model, the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque adds further space and versatility. Rear seat passengers benefit from over 50mm more shoulder room, along with better headroom. The key lines remain intact – the dramatic rising beltline, muscular shoulder running the length of the car, and the distinctive taper to the floating roofline – but with a slightly higher rear roof, in all other respects it remains identical to the 3-door coupe which means it stays true to the spirit of the LRX concept design.

“While retaining everything that’s great about the Range Rover Evoque coupé, this new 5-Door bodystyle will offer customers even more choice, greater practicality, versatility and flexibility. The launch of the Evoque in 2011 will expand and revitalise the global appeal of the Range Rover marque,” said Land Rover’s Managing Director Phil Popham.

The more capacious interior of the 5-Door Range Rover Evoque has not been achieved by enlarging the compact footprint of the coupé model: the overall length and width remain identical.

A full-sized glass panoramic roof enhances the sensation of space and comfort by flooding the interior with natural light, and offers even greater headroom for all occupants. The rear seats, with seat belts and head restraints for three passengers, have 60/40 folding seat squabs and are equipped with ISOFIX child seat mounts. When required, luggage capacity can be expanded to a 1445 litres with the seats folded down.

The 5-Door Range Rover Evoque follows the coupé model by offering customers the choice of three main vehicle design themes – Pure, Prestige and Dynamic – each with its own distinctive character, exterior treatment and carefully co-ordinated interior package. For the time being Land Rover have chosen not to distinguish between the 3-door and 5-door in terms of price, stating that both will cost from £30,000, but we would expect the 5-door to be priced up to £1,000 more than the coupé model
