This year’s Geneva Motor Show held many delights for the Signature team, one of which was the unveiling of Range Rover’s new Evoque Autobiography and Evoque Autobiography Dynamic. Both are intended to bring the popular small SUV to a new level of performance and luxury, and, judging by what we saw at Geneva, Range Rover have certainly achieved their aims.
The Autobiography Dynamic is being hailed as the ‘most entertaining to drive’ of the two versions, and it’s not hard to see why. Whilst both Autobiography models keeps the Evoque’s turbocharged 2 litre engine, the Dynamic has a fine tuned version that can produce 281hp – 41 more than the standard version – as well as 400 Nm of torque. The engine is linked to a car that’s optimised for performance: the 9-speed ZF transmission is a sportier version, the suspension has been tweaked for sharper handling, and it has larger, 35cm front brake discs. The four-wheel drive system, Active Driveline, features torque-vectoring technology and switches between two and four wheel drive as necessary. These improvements mean that the car can reach 60mph from standing in 6.7 seconds, and now attains a top speed of 140MPH.
Stylistically, the Autobiography versions of the Evoque feature new headlights, 20 inch alloy wheels, a lower front valance and new grille design, as well as distinctive Autobiography badging. As you can see from the gorgeous photos released by Range Rover, the Dynamic version is also available in a unique colour – the striking and luminous Phoenix Orange.
The Autobiography badging is continued inside, with special Autobiography headrests amongst other subtle touches. The interior is suitably luxurious, with leather, temperature-controlled seats and innovative technology such as Land Rover InControl, which can integrate your smartphone’s apps such as satnav into the car’s touchscreen.
