Mark 2 Evoque to be big­ger?

New Zealand LCV - - NEWS | ROUND-UP -

LAND ROVER’S HIGHLY-DIS­TINC­TIVE Evoque SUV is tipped to grow in size when the Mark 2 ver­sion de­buts in 2019.

Re­ports from Europe say a de­vel­op­ment car has been spot­ted and it ap­pears to have a wider track and new rear chas­sis.

Bri­tish mag­a­zine Au­to­car says it ap­pears the Mark 2 will be built on a new, larger plat­form and will have more cabin space.

The car’s wheel­base is un­changed, but it looks to be us­ing a com­pletely re­designed trail­ing arm sus­pen­sion set-up, the mag­a­zine said. The rear whee­larches are ex­tended and rear ride height has been raised.

Like Toy­ota in New Zealand, Land Rover re­fuses to dis­cuss fu­ture prod­uct.

Land Rover has re­mained tight-lipped on its re­place­ment Evoque model, stat­ing that it doesn’t com­ment on fu­ture mod­els.

Au­to­car sug­gests the Mk2 Evoque will use Jaguar Land Rover’s lat­est four-cylin­der petrol and diesel In­ge­nium en­gines.

Audi Q8 SUV will have coupe-like styling. Cur­rent model Land Rover Evoque – sec­ond gen­er­a­tion, due in 2019 is tipped to be big­ger.
