Also available for 2020 is the new Evoque Lafayette Edition, featuring a distinctive contrast roof in Nolita Grey. Inspired by fashionable New York City neighbourhoods and based on the Evoque S, the Special Edition features a carefully curated selection of options and is available as a P300e plug-in hybrid.
An updated, efficient next-generation four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engines are now available, featuring Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology. Using a belt-driven starter motor and battery pack, vehicles fitted with MHEV technology harvest energy normally lost under deceleration, feeding back to the vehicle’s 48-volt battery. The result is a smoother stop-start operation and optimised fuel economy – giving customers a taste of the benefits of an electrified vehicle without needing to plug in and charge. Available in 165PS and 200PS outputs, these are more powerful and efficient than the engines they replace with CO2 from 158g/km and fuel economy of up to 46.7mpg (from 6.0l/100km).
The first 1.5-litre Ingenium three-cylinder petrol engine – the P160 – is introduced with an automatic eight-speed transmission, offering customers an efficient yet refined entry point. The advanced three-cylinder P160 – the same engine which powers the plug-in hybrid P300e – produces 160PS (118kW) and 260Nm of torque, delivering a compelling blend of performance and economy thanks to its lightweight construction and front-wheel drive set-up.
Evoque customers continue to have a wide selection of additional petrol engines to choose from with P200, P250 and P300 options, all fitted with MHEV technology.
The digital experience has been transformed inside with the introduction of Land Rover’s state-of-the-art Pivi infotainment. The system is ready to go as soon as it’s switched on – a separate data plan and battery mean there’s no delay. Software updates are available over-the-air via the vehicle’s embedded data connection at no cost and can even be scheduled at a time to suit. This ensures customers always have the latest maps, apps and vehicle features without having to visit a retailer. The system is enabled by a new Electrical Vehicle Architecture and is available as either standard Pivi, or the more advanced Pivi Pro with built-in navigation, from S-specification.
Streaming music and media has never been simpler, with Spotify integrated directly within the infotainment menu for the first time – data included – and Bluetooth connectivity for two phones at once. There’s also wireless device charging with signal-boosting option. The new second-generation Activity Key is also available, allowing customers to unlock any door, lock or even start the vehicle, just by being nearby. Water-resistant, and shock-proof, this wearable wrist device now incorporates an LCD watch.
3D Surround Camera is now standard across the Discovery Sport range. This system provides a 3D, 360° view around the vehicle and is able to display several views simultaneously on the touchscreen when manoeuvring.
New Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) packs have been made available at 21MY:
Blind Spot Assist Pack (standard on SE): Blind Spot Assist | Clear Exit Monitor | Rear Traffic Monitor
Driver Assist Pack (standard on HSE & AB or optional): Blind Spot Assist | Clear Exit Monitor | Adaptive Cruise Control (Stop & GO) | Rear Collision Monitor | Rear Traffic Monitor | 3D Camera is standard on all derivatives
