The engine has an advanced turbocharged system allowing the engine to inject power during any car hire experience. The team at Range Rover know that die-hard 4 x 4 fans love the difference between the soft purr of the engine to the growl that you hear on the motorway. Because of this, a Mahle sound generator has been installed for a highly engineered rendition of the trademark Range Rover sound upon acceleration. The intricacy of the engine promotes low-friction levels within the engine with an outcome that drives in a fluid manner without any hesitation.
The Evoque features 4 cylinders and 2.0 litre petrol engine which accelerates the SUV to go from 0 - 60 mph in just 7.1 seconds. This feature of technological intensity in the engine of the Evoque is the ammunition for a motoring self-drive adventure which is bold yet exhilarating. The performance capability of the petrol engine can be illuminated by the turbocharging feature. Furthermore, when you fire up your engine to start your journey, within the engine there is a sheet metal exhaust that works in tandem with other parts of the engine to create a faster time-frame for starting your journey.
The clarity at which the Evoque is reducing fuel emission shows all motorists that not only is it a car defined by power but also by the needs of the environment. Drivers with a passion for the environment will be pleased to know that this exhaust also works to lower emissions from the engine. The 2.0 litre Si4 petrol engine has successfully achieved important reductions in the amount of CO2 emissions. This has been recorded to being up to 20 per cent of fuel emission reduction.
If you are using the Evoque with your family or a group of friends, you can take advantage of the copious amounts of storage space of the Evoque as seen by the size of the boot. It is shaped to accommodate drivers with sporty ambitions: you can fit a large golf bag in the boot and similar sized bags. If you have a lot of luggage, no need to fear: use the 60/40 folding rear seat attachments to immediately create space for your children's luggage or any shopping from your recent journey.
Operate the touch screen which measures at a staggering 8 inches in order to turn on the audio, video and navigation systems. Larger buttons are available on the touch screen to help drivers navigate better. A little known secret about the touch screen is the fact it is powered by Dual View technology. What this does it is allows drivers and passengers to view different mediums of information. If you want to check a navigational piece of content on your touch screen, you can do that while your passengers are engrossed in their favourite films on the DVD screen.
If you need to use your mobile phone, go hands-free with Bluetooth connectivity. The Evoque is a motoring supercar with the strength to process technological commands at the drop of a hat. Whether you want to use Bluetooth audio to allow your passengers to listen to music through the car's audio system or whether you want to plug in your MP3 player, the multimedia options of the Evoque are a testament to the evolution of the Range Rover marque. This focus on the futuristic is cemented by the technological innovations of the interior.
A visionary result of motoring excellence
The Evoque will be the meeting point for motorists who dream of the pinnacle of luxury yet who want to experience it on a regular basis. Choosing this car for your next journey can be made reality through self-drive hire. If you are passionate about luxury motoring, the Evoque is your reference point for the future. The Range Rover Evoque is a fresh take on the concept of the SUV; powering the idea that innovation inspires the most adventurous drivers during car journeys.
From each curve of the luxury car to the incisive lines in the interior of the Evoque, the design of the Range Rover is spectacular. Choosing the name of a luxury car hints to the execution of the visual appearance of the car. The team at Range Rover took the French verb 'évoquer' which means to reference. The Evoque takes on the whole meaning of the word by calling upon the classic Range Rover SUV styling with 21st century futuristic ideals. Range Rover fans know that a hallmark of the 4 x 4 is the clamshell bonnet. The Evoque has integrated this design feature in a heart-stopping way. From the moment you see your Range Rover Evoque for self-drive hire, the body of the car will be a visual highlight on the motorway during your journey. A view of the front-end design will leave motorists dazzled: the perforated grille and sharp headlamps are inimitable. The styling of the Range Rover Evoque is the final piece of the puzzle for drivers, which the exterior of the Evoque has set a high standard for luxury 4 x4 's.
As your eyes pan around the interior of the Evoque, take note of the punchy way that lines have been constructed in the cabin. Look at how the horizontal lines of the instrument panel connect to the vertical lines of the centre console. The dials of the instrumental panel have a 3-D look, becoming part of your atmosphere as you take the Evoque for a spin during a weekend car journey. Not only have the Evoque design team succeeded in creating an interior with that X-factor, they have implemented the visual aspect of angles and lines to create an arresting interior that passengers will not resist. Indulge in this visual feast of the Range Rover's interior on your next drive in the Evoque.
The craftsmen have used the finest materials to create a cabin worthy of those who drive this car. The leather seats of the Evoque are soft to touch and mould to your body whether you are driving or a passenger. This feeling of pure luxury is potent: just the type of emotion you want your passengers to feel especially if you have chosen the Evoque for corporate self-drive hire to impress clients for your business. Range Rover estimated that more than 3 hides of leather is needed to create each Evoque. The leather is grainy, rich and a sensory treat for people who love interiors with character. It's no surprise that the interior of the Evoque is the ace of this luxury vehicle.
For many drivers, the size and space available in the cabin of a luxury performance car is what can make or break a deal. You can be sure that the space of the cabin seals the deal. The rear seats are generous in size, allowing each passenger a comfortable circumference of space. The amount of room in the Evoque does not end there. Plenty of headroom is available, which is useful for tall drivers and passengers. All seats have their own head restraints and safety belts for the ultimate sense of comfort that you would expect from a Range Rover luxury car. This comfort in space is felt by the larger windows of the Evoque.
The Evoque team created a system where the windscreen has been laminated to reduce wind and windscreen wiper noise to result in a pleasurable driving experience which is free from the annoying swish of the wipers. Background noise is swiftly eliminated thanks to advanced computer simulation tools, giving drivers an unspoiled self-drive hire experience. The technology concerning wind noise does not stop there. Drivers and passengers alike will hear minimal wind noise because of computational fluid dynamics, a methodical system that Range Rover engineers have seamlessly integrated into the technological capabilities of the Evoque.
It is reassuring to know that if you are driving in heavy traffic, noise reduction is applied. The Range Rover Evoque has been fitted with lightweight alloy suspension components that manage the attrition of road noise. The reduction of road noise due to the pioneering engineering of the Range Rover Evoque will make driving relaxing and comforting for you and your passengers. How a driver interprets noise during a car journey is a subtle yet integral part of a motoring experience, which the Range Rover Evoque recognises.
There is something engaging about luxury motor steering that the Range Rover marque seems to encapsulate the best. Steering a Range Rover is effortless and with the Evoque, it becomes second-nature due to the electronic power assisted steering system. The power steering ability of the Evoque is sharpened because of how the steering rack is positioned; which is mounted on the front subframe. When you steer the Evoque, the response time is immediate with almost animal-like instincts for responding quickly whether you are indicating or doing a turn in the road. The steering wheel of the Evoque becomes the driver's sixth sense: you can operate the park assist feature that helps you parallel park especially helpful if the space is tight and short.
The four-wheel drive transmission of the car allows you to drive effortlessly. Incised with all-weather and all-surface features, an extra feature is the Terrain Response system that can be activated while driving the Evoque. If you require balance and you want to be able to anchor the Evoque's movements with a captain's precision, use the four-wheel drive where the front and rear torque are split using the Haldex centre coupling. Just from this example of the four-wheel drive transmission, it is evident that driving the Evoque is about synthesising precision and perfection.
Every driver has a unique way of driving the iconic Range Rover. The Evoque is loaded with dynamic driving features that allow you to stamp your own signature driving style during a self-drive hire journey. Take advantage of the Adaptive Dynamics system present in the Range Rover Evoque. In an amazing feat of technological prowess, the Adaptive Dynamics monitors the movements of the Evoque by at least 1000times per second. The system reacts virtually immediately to how the driver moves the car for a sleek drive along the motor way or tight bends or lanes, for example.
The Evoque is accentuated by hi-tech performance controls that aid the driver to have complete supremacy over the movement of the car. Take the blind spot monitoring feature: if you are driving the Evoque during corporate self-drive hire, initiate this control to keep you and your passengers safe. You can use it in conjunction with the stability controls available in the car that work in tandem to deliver a driving experience that is secure yet exciting.
