It boasts a fresh interior and exterior design, while showcasing some all-new technologies including its first plug-in hybrid. The mild hybrid is also offered from launch, with 296hp and 295lb ft.

More than £4bn contracts have been placed with United Kingdom companies to support production of the new Evoque, whcih the company says is "testament to Jaguar Land Rover's continued confidence in the competitiveness of its domestic suppliers".

At speeds below 17 km/h, the engine will shut off while the driver applies the brakes.

Land Rover's hybrid technology integration manager, Dave Skipper, says that the maker is making a concerted effort to lower emissions and that this is just the first step of many.

They also represent "the very first national Thanksgiving turkeys from the very great state of South Dakota ", the president noted.

Range Rover Evoque 2019 - 4.37 m long. The same goes for the nine-speed automatic transmission. That money buys a D150 model, complete with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine producing 148bhp while paired to the manual gearbox option sending power through the front wheels. Unsurprisingly, the vehicle maker says its new Evoque will be more advanced, luxurious and sophisticated than its predecessor... let's look at what we can expect.

Built on a new platform the Evoque now boasts more legroom and boot capacity, with a more practical 40:20:40 split rear bench instead of the old 60:40. When he re-accelerates, the stored energy is released to assist the combustion engine and thereby save on fuel.

For the second generation, designers have sought to not completely transform the silhouette of the model recognized by all. It will also be available with a line-up of four cylinder diesel and petrol engines and, 12 months later, a three cylinder plug-in hybrid engine. The new Evoque has four-wheel drive, a system which balances comfort and agility depending on what kind of driving you want to do, and the Terrain Response 2 system, which detects the surface being driven on and sets up the auto accordingly. There's a new Terrain Response system and wading depth has been increased by 100mm to an impressive 600mm. The "ClearSight" tool can superimpose a video feed from a rear-facing camera if the driver's view out the back window is obstructed, and a "Transparent Bonnet" system shows the position of the front wheels in relation to obstacles in the road, aiding movement through tight gaps or over obstructions, via the 10-inch touchscreen.

The dashboard mirrors the Velar, with a twin-screen system providing access to audio, navigation and heating controls. The dash now features twin touch-screens with Apple CarPlay and 4G WiFi hotspot capability, and a world-first Ground View camera technology which is created to make it seem like the bonnet is invisible. The second-generation version is all shiny new and stands ready to take its place, continuing the brand's longstanding off-road reputation in compact form while advancing its urban utility with a fresh yet familiar look and a host of smart features.
