Land Rover has revealed its newest model, a compact SUV dubbed the Range Rover Evoque. Based on the LRX concept that debuted in 2008, the two-door Evoque is the smallest, lightest Range Rover, and the company claims it will be the most fuel efficient Rover.
The reveal of the model will be at the 2010 Paris Motor Show in September; the car’s website — Hello Evoque — has a counter ticking down the minutes until then.
Plans for the Evoque include both a two-door and a four-door models.
The car has very interesting lines, but I expect this will run into the same rear visibility problems that are inherent in this design. There is a compromise between form and function for cars such as the BMW X6, Infinity FX, Acura ZDX, and Honda Crosstour –they all suffer some degradation of rear visibility as a result.
