JLR launches Evoque Landmark edition at Rs 50.20 lakh
Land Rover has launched the Landmark Edition of the Range Rover Evoque in India. Priced at Rs 50.20 lakh (ex-showroom), the Landmark Edition is based on the SE variant and is offered in three colour options. This edition was revealed first in May last year to mark the production milestone of 6 lakh units at the Halewood plant in UK. Now, the British manufacturer has launched the same in India to commemorate six years of the SUV in our country.
Changes to the exterior include a new body kit with body coloured lower door cladding, new Gloss Black 18-inch wheels (19-inch internationally) and a Carpathian Grey contrast roof. Inside, you have a dark satin brushed aluminium centre console, grained Ebony Leather seats with contrasting light lunar stitching and a perforated mid-section. Also standard on the Landmark Edition is a gesture-powered tailgate, WiFi Hotspot, Pro Services and keyless entry.
Powering the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Landmark Edition (that’s one big name) is the same 2.0-litre diesel engine of the stock SUV which makes 177PS of power and 430Nm of torque. Transmission duties are also handled by the same 9-speed automatic gearbox which lets the Evoque reach 100kmph in 9 seconds flat before clocking a top speed of 195kmph.
At the launch, Rohit Suri, President and Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd. (JLRIL), said, “The Range Rover Evoque has brought Range Rover luxury and refinement to new customers around the world and in India. Its critically acclaimed design, desirability and all-terrain capability have been further enhanced with the Model Year 2018 Range Rover Landmark Edition and we are happy to offer it to our discerning customers. With its striking looks and updated feature set, we are confident that the Range Rover Evoque fan base will grow even further.”
The Evoque rivals the likes of the BMW X3, Volvo XC60, Mercedes GLC and the upcoming Audi Q5 in terms of price, but in essence, as a stylish lifestyle SUV, it has no direct competitors. Land Rover has also revealed the prices for the all-new Velar in India.
