    Range Rover Evoque Details Released Ahead Of Paris Auto Show

    [SIZE=13px][COLOR=rgb(196, 15, 18)]Land Rover[/COLOR]‘s new Range Rover Evoque two-door SUV is on a publicity blitz ahead of its deubt at the Paris Auto Show, and details are begging to emerge.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=13px]Rather than the usual 8-cylinder powerplant, the Evoque will use a 2.0L Ecoboost 4-cylinder, dubbed the Si4, which makes 240 horsepower. Land Rover will likely have to resort to some creative marketing to sell customers on the idea of a 4-cylinder, even if it’s likely more than adequate for urban driving.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=13px]A 2.2L turbodiesel has also been announced, but power figures haven’t been announced yet beyond the 187 horsepower number. The torque figures will be far more important, and expect this engine to be sold in most of the Evoque’s 160 world markets, but not the United States.[/SIZE]

    Range Rover Evoque Details Released Ahead Of Paris Auto Show

    My favorite part about reading the article that autoguide posted were these two points

    - Permanent all-wheel drive combined with turbocharged four-cylinder engine and an updated six-speed auto transmission deliver excellent perforrmance and fuel economy

    - All-new 240 bhp 2.0-litre Si4 turbocharged engine combining six-cylinder refinement and performance with four-cylinder fuel economy

    Can't imagine driving a boring Range Rover. At first when hearing the Evoque would come with a 4 cylinder engine i wasn't too happy about it knowing a 4 cylinder can only do so much. But the Evoque engine options are quite impressive once you look at the engine specs, probably the best mix of fuel economy & power.
