Like the Coupe, the Range Rover Evoque Five-Door remains faithful to the dramatic lines of the original Land Rover LRX concept car, offering new levels of style and quality in the compact crossover segment. The Coupe and Five-Door are in fact the same size; the roof is common to both although on the Coupe it slopes more towards the rear of the vehicle. The overall length and width also remain identical.
Both feature lightweight construction techniques and are offered with the choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive configurations. In Europe customers will be able to choose from two 2.2-liter turbodiesel engines producing 187 or 148 horsepower, or a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline unit with 237 horsepower on tap. This latter unit is likely to be the only option offered to customers in the U.S.
