The new star of the supercar galaxy
As summer approaches, revel in the excitement you will feel when you drive this car upon its release. The new SUV from Jaguar Land Rover has created a new vision of luxury motoring made with cast-iron precision. The wait is over: the Range Rover Evoque Coupe is ready for self drive hire. We have two petrol Evoques; Fuji white with black and red leather interior or Black with black and red leather interior, both pack a real punch in the style and looks department.
Performance & Technology
The engine has an advanced turbocharged system which allows the engine to inject spurts of power during the course of a car journey. The team at Jaguar Land Rover know that die-hard Range Rover 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 has given birth to a design that promotes low-friction levels within the engine. The outcome of this is a car that drives in a fluid manner without any hesitation from the engine that powers it.
The 4 cylinders of the 2.0 litre petrol Range Rover Evoque Coupe pace the SUV to go from 0 - 60 mph in just 7.1 seconds. From this feat of technological intensity, the engines of the Evoque are the ammunition for a motoring self drive getaway that is bold yet brilliant. 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 Coupe is reducing fuel emission shows all motorists that not only is it a car defined by power, the philosophy of the Evoque is shaped 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.
Memories of being in cars from youth to adulthood are stirred up by the sound of the engine, windscreen wipers and changing gears of the manual gearbox. The Evoque team created a system where the windscreen has been laminated to reduce wind and windscreen wiper noise. Therefore, operating the windscreen wipers during a rainy car journey is no longer about being taken over by the annoying swish swish!
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.
You may find yourself in traffic at certain points during your journey in the Evoque Coupe. It is reassuring to know that if you are driving within traffic, noise reduction is applied to road noise. The Range Rover Evoque Coupe has been fitted with lightweight alloy suspension components that manage the attrition of road noise. This is particularly useful if you are driving the Evoque with several passengers. 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 magical about luxury motor steering that the Range Rover marque seems to encapsulate the best. Steering your Range Rover is effortless: with the Evoque Coupe, it becomes second-nature due to the electronic power assisted steering system. The power steering ability of the Evoque Coupe is sharpened because of how the steering rack was positioned: it is mounted on the front subframe. When you steer the Evoque Coupe, 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.
Another system that allows you to drive effortlessly is the four-wheel drive transmission of the car. 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 Coupe is going to be about synthesising precision and perfection.
Every driver has a unique way of driving the iconic Range Rover. The Evoque Coupe 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 Coupe. 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 Coupe 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 Coupe 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.
From each curve of the luxury car to the incisive lines in the interior of the Evoque Coupe, 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 SUV is the clamshell bonnet. The Evoque Coupe 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 Coupe is the final piece of the puzzle for drivers, which the exterior of the Evoque has set a high standard for luxury SUVs.
As your eyes pan around the interior of the Evoque Coupe during self drive hire, 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 Coupe.
The craftsmen have used the finest materials to create a cabin worthy of those who will sit inside it.

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 Coupe 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 Coupe is the ace of this luxury vehicle.
Space of the interior
If you are using the Evoque Coupe 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.
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 Coupe 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.
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.
