Report: Three-Row Range Rover Evoque “Plus” to Debut Late 2016
The Range Rover Evoque Plus would reportedly split the difference between the Range Rover Sport and today’s two-row Evoque. The larger Range Rover Sport focuses on handling and on-road performance, while the Evoque is a more affordable crossover aimed at urban driving.
According to Autocar, Range Rover plans for its future models to blend the design wagons and SUVs, with a lower-slung profile accentuating the Range Rover’s sporting heritage. The Evoque Plus will use the company’s Ingenium gas and diesel engines that debut in cars like the Jaguar XE and XF sedans, with top-end Range Rover Evoque variants receiving a V-6. All-wheel drive is expected to be standard.
Autocar expects the Range Rover Evoque Plus to make its official debut near the end of 2016, with a price tag between $ 60,000 and $ 90,000. A 2015 Range Rover Evoque starts at $ 42,095 with destination in the U.S.
