The three-door Range Rover Evoque won't stand alone in showrooms. Land Rover on Thursday confirmed that there is a five-door Evoque for those who need a little more utility from their SUV. The five-door Evoque is expected to debut at the Los Angeles auto show in November.
The Evoque, based on the LRX concept we saw in 2008, is part of the company's plan to draw new customers to the brand that might otherwise only be considered by the upper crust.
The Evoque is 17 inches shorter than the Range Rover Sport and seven inches lower. It's constructed with lightweight materials and will be available with a full-size panoramic sunroof. The Evoque will sit on a modified version of the Land Rover LR2 platform.
Power will come from a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine making 240 hp. The company says it will deliver the power of a six-cylinder while returning the mileage of a four. All Evoques will get permanent all-wheel drive and Land Rover's patented Terrain Response system.
Suspension will be available with an Adaptive Dynamics option using MagneRide dampers for a comfortable but sporty ride.
The three- and five-door Evoques hit showroom floors in fall 2011.
