18.02.2014

THE RANGE Rover Evoque has been hailed as the fastest-selling Land Roveryet, with more than 270 000 sales worldwide and 157 international awards under its belt since its launch in 2011. Now Land Rover is introducing the Autobiography name to the Evoque, with the Autobiography Dynamic, which will debut at the Geneva Motor show in March.

The Autobiography Dynamic is a sportier edition of the Evoque. It comes with improved performance and additional infotainment, so customers have access to a new heightened level of both agility and luxury. 

This new model makes a bold statement with the dynamic style for the exterior, 20-inch forged alloy wheels, a new premium grille design andjewel-like headlightsand tail lamps. A new striking premium metallic body colour called Phoenix Orange has also been added to the mix.

Infotainment is also enhanced with the new Land Rover InControl Apps that enables vehicle-optimised smartphone apps to be displayed and controlled from the vehicle’s touch screen. Owners simply download Land Rover InControlApps to their smartphone and connect it to the USB port to enable compatible apps to function on the Evoque’s touch screen.

The luxurious interior is fitted with leather upholstery available in a selection of six colour palettes.Headrests feature an Autobiography embossed logo while Autobiography illuminated tread plates greet you as you open the door.

One of the special features of Autobiography Dynamic is that the steering has been specially tweaked for additional on-centre precision. The chassis also features upgraded suspension geometry, firmer spring rates and recalibrated adaptive dampers, increasing agility and turn-in response.

To ensure drivers enjoy the full experience of the Autobiography’s optimised performance, upgraded 350mm front brake discs have been fitted, while Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVB) helps to reduce understeer on low- and high grip-surfaces, providing more responsive handlingcharacteristics.

The Evoque Autobiography Dynamic is fitted with 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 209kW and 400Nm of torque. The nine-speed ZF auto gearbox has also been revamped for a sportier drive, even when you’re just using the automatic drive mode.
