Range Rover Evoque Lands in the Philippines

The premium compact crossover segment is now going to get even more crowded. A couple of days after winning the North American Truck of the Year award, the Range Rover Evoque lands in the Philippines with a subtle media launch last Wednesday at the Land Rover Activity Centre in Bonifacio Global City.

Dubbed as the most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever produced, the Evoque offers bold design and state-of-the-art technology while keeping in touch with Land Rover's multi-terrain capability. Priced at a not-so-affordable P 5.350-M for the 5-door version and P 5.50-million for the 3-door coupe, the Evoque counters that by offering premium levels of craftsmanship and high-degrees of personalization--something its rivals cannot match.

Personalization aside though, the Evoque comes with just one engine: a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with direct-injection. Coupled with a turbocharger, this engine pushes out 240 horsepower. Together with its six-speed transmission as well as all-around independent suspension with MagneRide (tm) magnetorheological damper technology, the Evoque will certainly be as comfortable and capable both on- and off-road.


Press Release
Range Rover Evoque Now Driving in the Philippines

LRPhils Motors Inc. officially unveiled its latest addition to the Range Rover line, the all-new  Range  Rover  Evoque  –  the  smallest,  lightest,  most  fuel  efficient  Range  Rover  ever  produced.    The Range Rover Evoque stays true to the core values of Range Rover, providing premium levels of craftsmanship, luxury, performance and Land Rover multi-terrain capability while embodied in a more compact package.

Equipped  with  an  all-new  240-horsepower  Si4  turbocharged  direct  injected  2.0  liter four-cylinder  engine  and a  six-speed  automatic  transmission,  Range  Rover  Evoque  delivers  excellent  performance  and  fuel  economy. Its suspension is configured for dynamic and agile handling across varied terrain featuring with its MagneRide™  magnetorheological  damper  technology. The  Range  Rover  Evoque  evolved  from  the  LRX  concept  vehicle, capturing  the  latter’s  cross-coupe  design,  a  bold  deviation  from  the  traditional  Range  Rover  structure. The  landmark  Range  Rover  also  delivers  the  sleek  low-profile  of  the  LRX  without  compromising  the  interior  space and the traditional elevated Command driving position. 

“Range Rover Evoque is a new generation of SUV that attracts customers who have not previously considered getting  an  SUV.    However,  it  stands  out  from  the  crowd  with  its  performance  and  design  features  that  can only be experienced from a premium Land Rover vehicle,” said Mr. Wellington Soong, president and chairman of Land Rover Philippines.

“It  is  the  most  exciting  Range  Rover  yet,  with  worldwide  orders  already  passing  the  4,000  mark  and  awards tallying to 53 from 15 different countries,” added Soong.  The latest accolade comes from UK’s 4x4 Magazine naming  it  the  “4x4  of  the  Year”.    Recent  recognitions  also  include Car of the Year in the UK AutoExpress New Car Honours, Scottish Car  of  the  Year,  US  Motor  Trend's  SUV  of  the  Year,  BBC  Top Gear's  Car  of  the  Year,  Car  and  Driver  Spain  Car  of  the  Year,  and the Design Trophy from l'Automobile in France.

Innovative Range Rover technologies include an 8-inch (203mm) touch-screen display, a 360-degree Surround Camera System composed of five digital cameras that provide real-time viewing, adaptive auto-dipping xenon headlamps  that  follow  the  curves  of  the  road  and  automatically  switches  between  high  and  low  beam  as needed,  and  Bluetooth®  hands-free  phone  connectivity  and  audio  streaming. Range  Rover  Evoque  is  also  the first Range Rover to offer customers the option of two-wheel drive.

Aside from city driving, the Range Rover Evoque can also deliver fun-to-drive sporting handle on various tough terrains  with  exclusive  built-in  Land  Rover  technologies  like  the  Terrain  Response  and  Hill  Descent  Control systems. It passed the grueling 5,000-mile full-speed non-stop driving test at Nürburgring, Germany and  also underwent  a  month-long  ‘king  of  the  sand’ durability  cycle  in  the  Middle  East  through  dirt  roads,  off-road sand-driving, and tough inclines in intense desert heat.  The Land Rover test center in the UK drove the Range Rover Evoque through deep mud and clay at the Eastnor Castle proving grounds, the MIRA® and Gaydon durability  circuits,  and  the  deep  water,  and  ruts  of  a  military  proving  ground  designed  to  challenge  tanks  and personnel carriers.

LRPhils Motors, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of Land Rover vehicles in the Philippines.
