Stretched 2021 Range Rover Evoque Long-Wheelbase Is Coming, But Will We See It In Europe And America?
Two years after production of the second generation started, Land Rover is getting ready to extend the Range Rover Evoque lineup with a first-ever long wheelbase (LWB) model.
We’ve seen prototypes being tested in the open ever since earlier this year, and now they took to the Nurburgring for some more fine tuning.
Compared to the regular Evoques, the stretched variant features more space between the front and rear axles and longer rear doors. This will significantly improve rear legroom, a chapter in which the compact SUV has always struggled.
In addition to being more family friendly, it will retain the looks of its shorter sibling, albeit perhaps with a few minor touches, and will carry over the same features. The dashboard panel will continue to incorporate a digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, a tablet-like infotainment system in the middle and a third display for the HVAC. Premium materials will remain part of the offering, although we wouldn’t be surprised if they launch more options for it.
Power will likely continue to be provided by the same engines as the standard Evoques, meaning gasoline, diesel and plug-in hybrid units.
It is still too early to speak about the availability of the model and particularly, if it will be limited to China or sold in global markets too, but we should find out more about it when it debuts, either at the end of 2020 or early next year.
