- The compact SUV has undergone a facelift and the looks are inspired from its bigger sibling - the Range Rover Velar.
Jaguar Land Rover is set to launch its entry level SUV - the Range Rover Evoque 2020 - in India on January 30. The SUV was first unveiled in 2018. The new Evoque is based on JLR’s new Premium Transverse Architecture that can also support an electric version of the SUV.

The new Evoque has been awarded a maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating in 2019, and the first luxury compact SUV to be certified under the stringent NOx emissions targets Real Driving Emissions stage 2.
The new Range Rover Evoque will take on the likes of Mercedes-Benz GLC, BMW X3, Volvo XC60 and Audi Q5 on Indian roads.
