2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque – Release Date, News and Rumors

Although the new 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque promises to offer something more than an everyday grocery-getter, it falls short on utility purposes. Therefore we find it hard to fully recommend it. Its release date, according to various sources privy of its developments, should be expected sometime in August 2017.

Despite it costing a lot more than other luxury crossovers, the new Range Rover Evoque comes with lots of value for the money. The value is in form of a beautiful exterior and interior design, an unrivaled off-road ability, an available two-door body style, an impressive fuel economy rating, and excellent handling character.

It’s obvious for any vehicle carrying a Land Rover nameplate to stay true to off-road superiority, and therefore the Evoque doesn’t surprise anyone when it trumps other compact crossovers when the asphalt turns to dirt. This is perhaps one amongst the few vehicles in the segment that can actually combine a stylish, modern and sophisticated demeanor with an unmatched off-road gonzo.

The new model comes chock full of standard equipment and features even at its basic level. While buyers shouldn’t expect any radical changes next year, there isn’t any doubt that it will stay true to its roots and perfection. Engine matters remain unaltered for the new model although a bit of an update would have worked even well especially in such a competitive segment.

It is fairly frugal as before and manages to impress with its fuel consumption which EPA has quoted as 30 mpg when cruising at highway speeds. A lot however remains to be desired in the new model relative to what the competition offers.

At the same time, like wearing high heels to a day-long party, opting for style over function has its own drawbacks. The interior space is limited, even by crossover standards. The rear visibility is jeopardized as well. The window sticker, although it’s what Land Rover charges for the Evoque’s lust-worthy shape, isn’t justified. Our own opinion though.

If you’re shopping in the segment you might stumble upon other alternatives such as the spacious and well-appointed 2017 BMW X3. The X3 offers plenty of value such as a superior acceleration, additional engine choices including a fuel-sipping diesel variant. Others in the segment worth giving the Evoque a run for its money include the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, the 2017 Lexus NX 200t, and the 2017 Audi Q5.

The new Sport version will have similar characteristics as its Range Rover Sport brand as they are both smaller and faster versions compared to their base brands as it features a completely new design for the upcoming model year. This new design is going to be based on the Discovery Vision Concept that was already showcased earlier this year. The model is going to show no lack of contemporary technology as it is also being loaded with the nicest looking design touches that a Discovery car has ever had.

It is going to borrow the  engine and modern nine-speed ZF automatic transmission  as well as the stylistically looking shell that we have seen on the Evoque vehicle and will add  AWD system which creates a dynamic offer with more capabilities and options for this brand. Also the model is going to compete against some pretty staggering competition, the likes of 2017 BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC Class are among the top ones in the segment, but Audi Q5 and Lexus RX also come into the mix as well. Read the entire review if you are interested in finding out about the latest specs and statistics about this new car.

2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport exterior

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport exterior style is going to be based mostly on the already previewed Discovery Vision Concept. This is already an impressive looking and handsome design so they are incorporating it here and using its popularity to bolster the new Disco Sport car. The size is completely compact and is much more fitting than the standard Discovery and it actually looks more like the Evoque car than its base form. Land Rover has managed to produce one of the best looking vehicles from their production line so the combination of that sort of a design with the already mentioned concept can only be a good way to go design wise for the Disco vehicle.

The front end of the car has been changed to feature some softer cues. It is by no means a traditional looking design as it adopts many modern design parts. It is more rounded and thus much softer than we are used to, and the added mesh grille with HID headlamps and LED running lamps set in a circle is a very luxury way of designing it. The circle in which the LEDs are positioned is meant to present four cardinal directions. The rear lights have similar slim, wraparound design which fits into the overall new look of the vehicle. The new shape also adds some aerodynamic characteristics which enhances the performance as well. This year there is a total of nine exterior colors available, with the Yulong White being a limited edition color choice, and five different alloy wheel design options.

Interior

The best part of the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is actually on the insides. Although the exterior features a spectacular compact haul, it is the goodies on the inside that make the most difference here. First of all, the compact exterior actually hides the roomy interior. You would think that the car does not have much to offer on the inside and that you will have to get into a tight squeeze but the truth is actually far beyond than you would think. The spacing on the inside allows for a split of 5+2, with an extra third row added behind. The vehicle is good enough to fit in five people without any problems but the ones sitting in the third row will have to squeeze up a bit but they can mainly be used by children in fact.

The cabin is luxurious as in any Land Rover vehicle that you have come by so far.  Twin-needle-stitched leather, configurable mood lighting and multi-zone climate control, a genuine metal interior trim, all of it is a part of a standard surrounding inside a Land Rover car and the Discovery Sport versions wears them with pride. The second row of seats can also be additionally adjusted and reclined for more spacing. There are various cup holders and storage spaces offered at every seating position allowing you extra comfort and the air vents have been re-positioned for extra efficiency this time.

Engine

2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport engine

The powertrain of the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is going to be the same one seen inside the Evoque car. A 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that makes 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque and combined with a ZF nine-speed automatic transmission is what completes the powertrain setup. But bolstering the performance of this vehicle is the Haldex All-Wheel-Drive system which points the car into the right direction and leaves you open to more paths and options to travel upon.

Price and release date

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is going to be available in three different trim levels, the base SE, HSE and HSE Luxury. The base MSRP price of the SE is labeled at $37,995, the SHE is $41,570 while the HSE Luxury is $45,570. The vehicle is going to be released by the end of this year or early at the start of the next one.
