JLR has announced a £30k ‘indicative’ starting price for the new Range Rover Evoque, along with a jolly set of pictures showing the car in its final production form.

Available in 4×4 or with front-wheel drive only, the Evoque will also come in a trio of optional trim levels, ranging from a relatively restrained approach called Pure, through a world of leathery luxury – Prestige – to the full bling with 20ins wheels and ‘bolder’ exterior with unique bumpers, sills, grille and tailpipes – Dynamic. All models can be covered using our Range Rover Evoque insurance.

There’s no supercharged V8 of course, but front-drivers can have a new 2-litre, 240hp Si4 petrol engine with turbo and variable valve timing (nee Ford Ecoboost) that’s said to return a 0-60mph time of 7.1secs. Alternatively there are a couple of 2.2-litre turbodiesel options offering 190hp or 150hp.

Inside, you get a Jaguar-style pop-up rotating gear selector for the six-speed auto option, and a touch screen display with dual-view technology. Optional gadgets and gewgaws also include an 825W stereo, automated parallel park-assist, blind spot monitoring and a surround camera system.

Today’s press release also promises ‘dynamic and sporty handling’, courtesy of a chassis that features adaptive MagneRide dampers for ‘a supple controlled ride, tighter body control, flatter handling and sharper responses’.
