The next generation of the Range Rover Evoque II has been caught during its testing several times so far. And according to the prototype model, the future 2019 Range Rover Evoque II will arrive with numerous upgrades. However, it is still unsure whether this compact SUV continue to ride on the same underpinnings or it will use a new architecture. But, all the things indicate that it will use a new, larger platform. Because of the new platform, the Evoque II will offer more spacious cabin. Still, despite the increase in size, it should be much lighter than the current model which should improve aerodynamics, handling and general performance of the vehicle.
Furthermore, what we find very interesting is that the Range Rover will now be available with a plug-in hybrid engine under its hood. Of course, it will basically be offered with four-cylinder petrol and diesel units. Visually, the new Evoque will most likely continue with the same design as its predecessor; and it could only receive some minor adjustments in order to keep it fresh. The new Evoque II will be available in the three-door and five-door versions.
2019 Range Rover Evoque II engines and performances
According to the latest news, the upcoming 2019 Range Rover Evoque II will use the Jaguar Land Rover’s 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines under its hood. For the 2.0-liter unit, the performance will go from 200 to 250 horsepower. So, the one option will be a 2.0-liter diesel engine which will be able to make 148 minimum and 237 maximum depending on a trim level. The petrol unit will be more powerful with the output of 250 and 296 horses.
However, the new Rage Rover will bring one more novelty and it will be a new plug-in hybrid engine. This drivetrain will most likely be a combination of a 1.5-liter inline-3 petrol engine and one electric motor. There will also be a lithium-ion battery which should provide a solid amount of an all-electric range.
Platform, exterior and interior design
There have been rumors about the platform of the upcoming 2019 Range Rover Evoque II; precisely, the question was whether it will ride on the same Land Rover Freelander platform which also underpins the Discovery Sport or it will be built on a new one. The second is more likely to happen, so the new Evoque will most likely ride on the modified version of the LR-MS architecture. As well, it is also going to be larger than its forerunner which will affect interior space.
Speaking of the exterior, the 2019 model year will feature similar design of its predecessor; but it will be slightly refreshed. Those changes will include sleeker headlamps and slightly revised grille. Furthermore, the rear end will be more rounded tah before.
When it comes to interior, the 2019 Range Rover Evoque II will arrive with more spacious cabin because of the new platform. The room for the rear passengers will be significantly larger which will provide more comfort.
Release date and price
The 2019 Range Rover Evoque II probably won’t arrive before 2019. As for the price, it will most likely start at around $42,500.
