We discover the new Range Rover Evoque, the perfect blend of style, performance and quality.


The Range Rover Evoque combines style, performance and quality into a car that’s perfect for city living. This compact SUV has had a new upgrade for 2021 with the launch of new special editions, as well the introduction of the Range Rover Evoque P300 HST. Combining sporty style with a touch of elegance this car is the perfect drive for women on the go, taking you from home to the office to the school – in one smooth journey. We discover more of the latest model the R-Dynanic HSE as we test drive it in the UAE.




The Range Rover Evoque R-Dynanic HSE exudes style from the moment you lay eyes on it. Created in a Santorini Black colour its understated elegance with a touch of boldness and its compact yet spacious design is perfect for day-to-day life in the city. These elements combine to create a design that has the exclusivity and status of Range Rover but also adds a flair of sophistication and a feminine touch. The panoramic roof is a nice touch, especially during the winter, where driving with the roof open offers an open-top experience that doesn’t blow you away, and the 20-inch alloy wheels look great and feel smooth and seamless when driving.


If you are looking for something extra special, the R-Dynamic Exterior Pack includes a Dark Atlas Range Rover Bonnet Script, Dark Atlas Grille with Gloss Black Surround, Body-Coloured front bumper with Dark Satin Grey Valance, Dark Satin Grey Rear Bumper with body-Coloured Valance, Burnished Copper Side Vents, Gloss Black Door Mirror Caps, Dark Atlas Range Rover Tailgate Script, Burnished Copper Bonnet Louvres and Burnished Copper Exhaust Finishers.


The interior comes in a dark plush leather either in deep garnet or ebony diamond. Its chic design reflects the exterior and offers a comfortable and elegant ride. There is also the option to upgrade to full leather meaning Windsor Leather on the Mid Instrument Panel, Instrument Panel Topper, Door Top Uppers & Lowers.




One of the highlights of this model is its entertainment system, making it easy to take control of all your needs from the touch of a button. The InControl Touch Pro Duo Infotainment system features the most innovative technology system to offer a wealth of information and entertainment in an easy and simple manner. The new PIVI 10” Touchscreen is wide enough to allow drivers to control and interact with a number of features at the same time, whether it’s the navigation system, music or phone, all can be displayed side by side so there is no need to keep touching the screen while driving. The in-car MERIDIAN Sound System features 11 Speakers Including Subwoofers 380 Watts

Output sound system and plays high-quality audio as you drive, while CarPlay® and Android AutoTM applications make it easy for you to sit back and enjoy the moment as you drive.


14-way electric seats add to your comfort while the memory options mean you’ll never have to adjust your seat again after your first drive.




Like any Range Rover, impeccable performance is essential. A 2.0 litre I4 engine offers a satisfying acceleration of 0-100KM/H in 7.6 seconds which is more than ideal for city life. A 9-speed automatic transmission makes the drive seamless and smooth and in-car details like sped camera alerts and cruise control allow for you to relax on long journeys. Electronic Power Assisted steering makes it easier to drive while the Four Wheel Drive system is great for extended trips. Other highlights worth noting are: the Anti-lock Braking, System, Electronic Stability Program, Roll Stability Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Electronic Traction Control, Hill Descent Control, Cornering Brake Control, Dynamic Stability Control, and Gradient Acceleration and Release Control; all added in to ensure you have the smoothest, most comfortable drive possible. The Drive Assist Parking system means parking is easier than ever thanks to a 360o 3D Surround Camera.
