2017 Range Rover Evoque Landmark Special Edition on sale from $74,351
To celebrate six years of success with the Range Rover Evoque, Land Rover has announced the Range Rover Evoque Landmark Special Edition. The limited edition SUV will be available in a vibrant Moraine Blue colour, inspired by the turquoise lakes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, as well as Yulong White and Corris Grey.
Priced from $74,351 for the Td4180, the Special Edition made its global debut at the Royal Windsor Horse Show on May 10.
The Range Rover Evoque Landmark Special Edition features a ‘dynamic’ body kit and grey exterior design details including a Carpathian Grey contrast panoramic roof, 19-inch Gloss Dark Grey alloy wheels and Graphite Atlas grille, bonnet, fender vent and tailgate lettering. Other standout features include brushed satin centre console trim finishers and grained Ebony leather seats with contrasting Light Lunar stitching and a perforated mid-section.
The Landmark Special Edition comes with Land Rover’s latest technology including the optional 10-inch InControl Touch Pro system and Connect Pro pack, featuring apps such as Spotify and a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. The Remote Premium app for a smartphone or smart watch lets owners check the fuel level, lock status, location and even pre-heat or cool the cabin.
Those wanting an even more enhanced Evoque infotainment experience can opt for Touch Pro Services, which offer real-time traffic mapping, satellite and ‘street level’ views and a ‘Live Apps’ sidebar with weather, news headlines, and a flight tracker – this requires a sim card with a data plan.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover, Chief Design Officer, said:
“What makes Evoque so special is its relevance. The design remains modern and fresh. The Evoque is widely acknowledged to have brought a whole new youthful generation of buyers into the Range Rover brand, including more women. Its success was clear from the start and gave us the confidence to break new ground, which you can see with vehicles like the Evoque Convertible. This Landmark Special Edition is a celebration of six years of success so far.”
Land Rover’s Halewood production plant in the UK has built 600,000 units of the Evoque in just six years. Six years after going on sale, sales reached an all-time high for a single month with almost 18,000 units sold worldwide in March 2017.
Evoque also has Range Rover’s largest trophy cabinet, winning more than 200 awards, including ‘Best Compact SUV’ in Germany, France, Spain and Brazil as recently as 2016.
Following later this year Range Rover will introduce the Range Rover Velar to its showroom; the fourth member of the Range Rover family. The Velar will sit between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport in the line-up. Land Rover says the “Velar combines glamour, modernity and elegance like no other”. The Range Rover Velar will be priced from $70,950 (plus on road costs).
