Land Rover has announced the updates to the 2014 Range Rover Evoque, with the biggest update being the addition of a new nine-speed automatic transmission. The new ZF nine-speed automatic will be available across the Evoque range and is expected to reduce fuel consumption by up to 11.4 percent and reduce CO2 emissions by up to 9.5 percent. The 2014 Range Rover Evoque also gets new driveline technologies, seven new driver assistance features and detail design enhancements inside and out.
The 2014 Evoque is available with a new Active Driveline system that is the world’s first ‘on demand’ four-wheel drive system which enhances agility and improves fuel efficiency by operating in front-wheel drive only during steady-state driving at speeds above 22mph. The new system monitors vehicle dynamics and automatically reconnects four-wheel drive (within 300 milliseconds) whenever it is needed. Active Driveline also features Active Torque Biasing with electronic-Diff (e-Diff) technology to distribute torque between the rear wheels, optimizing traction and stability.
For the 2014 model, the driver assistance capabilities of Evoque are significantly enhanced by the introduction of features including: Park Exit (to automatically exit parallel parking bays), Perpendicular Park (to position the car centrally in parking bays), Closing Vehicle Sensing and Reverse Traffic Detection (to warn drivers of oncoming traffic), Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition and Wade Sensing.
In addition to the new technologies, the 2014 Evoque gets new color options for the interior, four new alloy wheel styles and a new style of Land Rover badge on the grille, wheel centers and tailgate.
