Range Rover’s smallest car has gained the same infotainment system as the Land Rover Defender.
It’s also being offered with a three-cylinder engine for the first time, but we won’t be seeing it in Australia.
Instead, the 2021 Range Rover Evoque will be available with four different engines, among which is the new D200 four-cylinder turbo-diesel also featuring in the 2021 Land Rover Discovery Sport.
With 150kW of power and 430Nm of torque, it features 48V mild-hybrid system for smoother start/stop and better fuel economy on the combined cycle.
Inside, the new Evoque has gained the Pivi Pro infotainment system which debuted in the Land Rover Defender. It’s faster than the outgoing Touch Pro system, with Land Rover claiming it will be running by the time the driver is ensconced in their seat.
Land Rover says the system is smarter than before, capable of knowing when you want voice prompts for navigation, and knowing when you just want the system to be quiet.
It can also make frequently-dialled phone numbers easier to access around the time you usually call them. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included in the system, naturally.
With an embedded modem, the Evoque can receive over-the-air updates for new functionality without visiting the dealer.
A new suite of driver assists includes a rear collision monitor, which can detect when the car is about to be hit from behind and prepare the cabin, and a new 3D Surround Camera capable of operating at up to 30km/h.
Also new for 2021 is an advanced cabin filtration system, which can be monitored through a screen on the new infotainment system.
