After seven and a half years of rolling out the same vehicle, Land Rover has made a comeback with the second-gen Range Rover Evoque.

"The new model's compact footprint, at just 4.37-metres-long, will make the new Range Rover Evoque the go-to luxury city SUV", JLR said.

That price represents an $8590 increase over the previous most-affordable Evoque, but its maker says all versions now offer improved value in the form of sophisticated architecture and up-to-the-minute technology, as well as the new hybrid drivetrains.

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has unveiled its latest Range Rover Evoque and created more than £4bn worth of supplier contracts in the UK. While the range during electric operation is still under question, Carbon dioxide emissions will be in line with European emission standards. There will be two powertrains initially available, which will be backed by a 9-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

All six launch engines are 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder units, including three diesels - 110kW/380Nm D150, 132kW/430Nm D180 and 177kW/500Nm D240 - and three petrols - 147kW/320Nm P200, 184kW/365Nm P250 and 221kW/400Nm P300.

"An entirely new architecture delivers Range Rover refinement, with agile on-road handling and world class off-road capability", it added. Local deliveries are scheduled to begin during the second quarter of 2019.

In general, the new generation model retains the recognizable appearance.

It's also now more efficient, with Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, as well as new Hybrid-electric and 48-volt mild hybrid options.

Underneath the skin, the Evoque should ride on an updated version of the current model's D8 platform, which also serves as the basis of the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Jaguar E-Pace. The new Evoque has four-wheel drive, a system which balances comfort and agility depending on what kind of driving you want to do, and the Terrain Response 2 system, which detects the surface being driven on and sets up the auto accordingly. Tech firsts include a virtually "transparent hood" technology and a rear-view mirror that turns into an HD screen displaying a camera feed of what's behind the vehicle. Here are the top five new features of the 2019 Evoque that's headed for the Indian market next year. The interior doesn't exactly re-write the rule book - there's still a strong horizontal, steeply raked mid-section, and a center console that races up to meet it like a stunt ramp - but it does look slicker, partly thanks to the "hidden-until-lit" capacitive switches and optional Touch Pro Duo double touchscreen, both first seen on the Velar. The screen provides a 50-degree field of vision and enhances visibility in low light.

Inside, twin touchscreens operate the controls, while there's Apple and Android compatibility and a 4G wifi hotspot.
