Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has quite been a fantastic blend of many worlds, bringing together luxury, style and serious off-roading capabilities. Compared to other Range Rover models, the Evoque was a very fresh design when it first came in 2012 and come to think of it, it still looks new and young. Even so, Land Rover has a new second-generation Range Rover Evoque in the works and a prototype was recently spotted while on a test by Motor Authority. The new Evoque seems to pick some design cues from the Range Rover Velar, while the rest of the car is mostly similar to the current generation. The model in the images is a five-door version and according to Motor Authority, there will not be a three-door repeat.

Range Rover Evoque will be based on the same platform underpinning the current Evoque and the Discovery Sport, which is Land Rover’s LR-MS. However, the platform is expected to be updated with lighter materials and alternative powertrain capability. Also, mild hybrid and even plug-in hybrid tech may be on the cards.

On the inside, control layout from the current model has been retained, however, most of the controls seen in the pictures are still from a test unit. Expect the Velar’s dual-screen centre stack to feature in the new Evoque.

2020 Range Rover Evoque is likely to remain the same in terms of size, which works well as the Velar is placed between the current Evoque and Range Rover Sport. Besides the second generation Evoque, Land Rover is expected to bring an all-new model below the Evoque. The new Evoque will likely go on sale in 2019 as a 2020 model.
