While still decked out in significant layers of black-and-white wrapping, the images posted by carscoops.com shows the Evoque featuring a number of design cues taken from the Velar, most notably the more flared wheel arches and LED taillights.
Retaining its coupe profile and reportedly set to continue using the Ford derived D8 platform, the Evoque's biggest changes will come inside with the same interior layout as the Velar, and indeed underneath the bonnet where a plug-on hybrid model could join the range of Ingenium turbo-petrol and turbodiesel engines.
Having recently teased the Velar based SV Coupe and in-line with comments made by Land Rover Design boss Gerry McGovern, the updated Evoque will lose its three-door coupe bodystyle option and be offered as a five-door only, although it will continue to be available with either front-or-all wheel drive. No word about the quirky two-door convertible has however been made.
An official reveal is allegedly set to take place later this year with sales commencing in early 2019.
