Geneva LIVE: 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Autobiographyby Ronan Glon
The Evoque Autobiography Dynamic boasts a 285-horsepower turbo four.
Land Rover has detailed two luxurious limited-edition variants of the Range Rover Evoque. Both models debuted at the Geneva Motor Show.
The first model is called Autobiography, a name already used on range-topping variants of the Range Rover and the Range Rover Sport. The Evoque Autobiography stands out from the rest of the lineup thanks to a host of aesthetic upgrades such as 20-inch forged alloy wheels and a more premium interior that reportedly boasts wall-to-wall leather upholstery.
The Autobiography is powered by the same 240-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine found in the regular Evoque's engine bay.
Designed to slot at the very top of the Evoque lineup, the Autobiography Dynamic uses a 285-horsepower version of the 2.0-liter turbo four, making it the most powerful regular-production Evoque ever built. The engine is linked to a nine-speed automatic transmission programmed to deliver a more responsive driving experience, while upgraded brakes and a revised chassis keep the power in check.
Both cars will announce the arrival of Land Rover's InControl Apps technology to the Evoque lineup. InControl Apps optimizes select smartphone applications for in-vehicle use when the device is plugged into the SUV's USB port. It is compatible with the latest Apple and Android operating systems.
After debuting in Geneva, the limited-edition versions of the Evoque will land in showrooms next summer as 2015 models. Pricing information will be published closer to the cars' on-sale date.
