JLR had launched the new Range Rover Evoque earlier this year in January. The SUV comes in two variants and with two engine options to choose from. Noticeably borrowing design elements from the Velar, the Evoque's looks are highlighted by sharp automatic LED head lights along with DRLs, a smart front mesh grille, redesigned bumpers and new LED tail lights. The SUV sits on 18-inch alloys and also gets pop-out door handles. On the inside, the Evoque gets two touchscreens with the one the top 10-inch unit housing the infotainment system while the other one serving as the control base for the two-zone air conditioning.
The new Range Rover Evoque is also packed with a host of safety features which include six airbags, ABS with EBD, emergency brake assist, hill descent and ascent assist, stability control, pedestrian airbag, rear camera with senors and lane keep assist.
In February this year, JLR drove in the new Discovery Sport. Built on the Evoque Transverse Architecture which makes it ready for shift to electric power in the future, the new Discovery Sport currently comes with BS 6-compliant 2.0-litre petrol and diesel Ingenium engines. A nine-speed automatic unit handles transmission duties inside the Discovery Sport 2020 and AWD comes as standard.
The new Discovery Sport has redesigned bumpers, a new grille and fresh head lights. On the inside, the dashboard has been reworked to make it more driver oriented while a multi-function steering wheel and 10-inch infotainment screen come as standard. There is also a fixed panoramic contrast roof with power blind.
The price of the new BS 6 Range Rover Evoque starts from ₹ 54.94 lakh, while the new BS 6 Discovery Sport will come at a starting price of ₹ 57.06 lakh.
