Debuts at Geneva Motor Show
Land Rover unveil the new Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic to the Evoque line-up for 2015. This new derivative features enhanced dynamic styling, 20” forged alloy wheels and premium leather interior details all with Autobiography embossed headrests and with the option for either sports or premium climate seat.
The Autobiography Dynamic’s chassis has been optimised for even sharper handling, while the top-of-the-range 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine has been upgraded to produce 285PS and 400Nm, a substantial 45PS and 60Nm increase compared with the existing Range Rover Evoque. A new and striking premium metallic body colour called Phoenix orange also debuts exclusively for the Autobiography Dynamic.
Murray Dietsch, Director of Land Rover Programmes, said “when the Range Rover Evoque was launched, it brought a unique blend of innovative exterior and interior design and exceptional on- and off-road capability to the market. It created the premium compact SUV. The introduction of the new range-topping Autobiography Dynamic together with Land Rover InControlTM Apps, take the Range Rover Evoque’s core strengths a step further, bringing increased levels of dynamic ability, desirability, luxury and connectivity to the already successful line-up.”
The Land Rover InControlTM Apps is the ultimate for in-car connectivity. This new in-car technology complements the Evoque’s existing infotainment system by bringing the convenience, familiarity and original look and feel of compatible smartphone apps into the owner’s vehicle. Land Rover InControlTM Apps is compatible with the latest Apple and Android smartphones. By connecting a smartphone to the dedicated USB port, specific smartphone apps optimised for in-vehicle use will function on the Range Rover Evoque’s touchscreen, with new content available every time the apps update. Jaguar Land Rover Group Engineering Director, Dr Wolfgang Ziebart said “InControl Apps puts us at the cutting edge of in-car connectivity. The Range Rover Evoque’s central touchscreen is now an extension of an owner’s iPhone or Android smartphone with the latest content always available. Crucially, Land Rover InControlTM Apps allows other drivers of the vehicle to access their own smartphone content safely and effectively on the vehicle’s touchscreen. An in-car app experience with familiar app DNA.”
Land Rover InControlTM Apps* is the latest addition to Land Rover’s suite of InControl connected-car technologies. InControl Remote allows owners to summon roadside assistance or the emergency services if required. The InControl Remote smartphone app allows owners to prepare for a trip by checking fuel levels and range remotely, find their vehicle in a crowded car park and check if they have left doors or windows open. They can also download journey details to assist in claiming business mileage expenses. Even better InControl Secure tracks the vehicle should it be stolen.
