New photos and prices of the 2012 Range Rover Evoque SUV 5-door released

Land Rover has revealed the photos of the 2012 Range Rover Evoque 5-door model ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show 2010 next week. The Evoque 5 door is equally impressive as the aggressively styled 3-door Evoque. Prices will start from £30,000/ 35,000E in UK/ Europe. We are not sure when the 2012 Evoque would appear in US, or what prices are likely to be.

The 2012 Evoque 5-door has a less sloping roof i.e., 30 mm higher roof than the Evoque 3-door. In order to have a higher roof, the height of the windshield of the Evoque 5-door has been increased by 30 mm, which in turn improves the head room at the front by 30 mm and at the rear by 40 mm. The Evoque 5-door is 30 kg heavier than the Evoque 3-door.

The Range Rover Evoque (both 3 door and 5 door) will be powered by a 2.0 litre petrol engine that makes a 237 bhp and a 2.2 litre diesel engine with either 148  bhp or 187 bhp. The Evoque will be made available in both front wheel drive and all wheel drive.

The Range Rover Evoque was first showcased to the world as the company celebrated its 40th anniversary at Kensington Palace on July 1, 2010. The Evoque is designed based on the LRX concept that Range Rover showcased during the Detroit Show in 2008. Owing to a positive reception worldwide, Land Rover decided to turn the concept into reality.

Land Rover decided to add practicality and a family friendly variant to the LRX concept. The company thus modified the Freelander/ LR2 chassis and developed the Evoque.
