Evoque gets own Autobiography

18 February 2014

Land Rover will be introducing the Autobiography name to the Range Rover Evoque for the first time.

The new model will be called the Autobiography Dynamic and as you can probably guess, it’s all about the performance.

The standard 2,0-litre turbocharged petrol engine has been upgraded to produce 210kW and 400Nm of torque. Its 9-speed ZF transmission has also been tuned to respond even more keenly to sportier driver inputs.

Active driveline, a system that enhances agility and improves fuel efficiency by engaging four-wheel drive seamlessly and automatically when required, is standard fitment on this particular model.

The steering of the Autobiography Dynamic has been specially tuned for additional on-centre precision, while the chassis features upgraded suspension geometry, firmer spring rates and recalibrated adaptive dampers, increasing agility and turn-in response. Stopping power is taken care of by a set of 350mm front brake discs.

The Autobiography Dynamic features a few model specific styling cues, including a premium grille design, lower front valance, jewel-like headlights and tail lamps and those striking 20-inch alloys.

Inside, the Autobiography Dynamic is equipped with a luxurious leather interior in a selection of six colour palettes. Customers can choose from a dynamic plus leather interior with either sports or premium climate seats in a choice of four colours. Headrests feature an Autobiography embossed logo whilst Autobiography illuminated tread plates greet you as you open the door.

More information on this model will become available once it debuts at the Geneva International Motor Show in March.
