Terrain Response 2 - technology first found on full-size Range Rover - automatically detects the surface being driven on, and adjusts the set-up accordingly. After 12 months from the date of launch, JLR will introduce a 3-cylinder plug-in hybrid engine as well.

Power will likely come from a selection of four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, while a plug-in hybrid model could be on the cards too.

The Range Rover Evoque is available to order now and first deliveries are expected to start in the spring.

The adoption of new mixed-metal Premium Transverse Architecture, however, liberated more interior room for the passengers, especially at the back. New Evoque features All-Wheel Drive, as well as a second-generation Active Driveline with Driveline Disconnect to enhance efficiency and Adaptive Dynamics to deliver the optimum balance of comfort and agility.

The all-new 2020 Evoque will compete with the Audi Q3 and Volvo XC40.

Although the overall length is basically the same as before, the wheelbase has been stretched by around 20mm to liberate rear legroom and boot capacity.

The cargo area is wider and 10% larger (591 litres) now, and it can swallow a folded pram or set of golf clubs, with space increasing to 1,383 litres when the 40:20:40 rear seats are folded.

"Our commitment to United Kingdom production remains firm and the new Evoque benefits from a one-billion-pound investment". Perhaps that's why the brand hasn't deviated far from the original styling with this model.

2020 Range Rover Evoque Shows Its Velar Traits On Video

Aesthetically, the 2019 Evoque carries over a strikingly similar theme from the previous version. We're not expecting the three-door model to make a comeback since demand has been low for the first Evoque, while the availability of a new convertible is uncertain at the time being.

It's not just a simple re-hash though.

Steering wheel on 2020 Range Rover Evoque looks borrowed from the Velar. The latter is perhaps acknowledgment that most Evoques spend the majority of their lives in the metropolis. The rear-view mirror has been digitalised, and the headlights are now LED.

The new Evoque will debut JLR's Ground View technology, which uses cameras in the front grill combined with a head-up display system to create the illusion of a transparent hood that allows drivers to see the road ahead even on the steepest incline. So a variable allradan is rubbed, usual, short Overhangs and a fording depth of 60 centimeters.

In-car tech has been beefed up with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and the ability for over the air updates to the infotainment technology. Out of three screens, two screens can be accessed easily whereas the third screen is the digital instrument cluster.

On the inside, the new Evoque looks more modern and luxurious than the outgoing model.

The range of engines, all from Jaguar Land Rover's cutting-edge Ingenium powertrain range, send power to all four wheels via a nine-speed ZF automatic transmission as standard.
