Limited Edition Range Rover Evoque

By on March 18, 2013

The Limited Edition Range Rover Evoque, featuring the Sicilian Yellow color combination, is any car enthusiast’s prize possession for the 2013-2014 model year. With 3 and 5 door form options and an opening price of roughly $66,000, the Sicilian Yellow Range Rover Evoque is the top of the line in class and performance. While its limited production quantity will make this vehicle a potential collector’s item in the near future, the Range Rover Evoque is an amazing vehicle its own right.

With a 2.0 liter turbo-charged, 6-speed automatic transmission that is capable of propelling the Evoque at a top speed of 134 MPH with an acceleration of 0-60 MPH in 7.1 seconds, this Range Rover is designed with safety, entertainment, cargo, and luxury in mind. Its electronic-powered assisted steering ensures that the car is steady at all times, while its electronic parking brake makes sure that emergency braking is only a click away. Meanwhile, terrain response systems use sensors to adapt the vehicle’s maneuverability and speed to fit road conditions, whether in snow, mud, or gravel.

Conveniences such as its electrically-powered tailgate, which allows the driver to open and close the back door from within the cabin;cruise control, which ensures that the car remains at a steady pace and at a safe distance from other traffic; a rear-facing camera that can be viewed from within the cabin to ensure safe reversing; and keyless entry that helps to prevent auto theft make this vehicle one-of-a-kind when it comes to security and the day-to-day needs of regular people.

With all of the rear seats upright, the Range Rover Evoque has a load space of 31.34” in length, 33.1” in height, and 43” in width. With the rear seats down, the length is doubled at 62.3”. Headroom inside the vehicle is measured at just under 40”, allowing even the tallest of people to fit comfortably inside its spacious cabin.

For technology lovers and entertainment enthusiasts, the Range Rover Evoque is truly designed for families as it features an 8” touchscreen monitor in the dashboard for managing navigation, communications, and media, an audio connectivity system that allows any MP3 player, iPod, or other media device to be directly connected to the car’s surround sound speakers and dashboard control systems, 2 USB ports for connecting external devices, such as a phone or MP3 player, and a Bluetooth streaming network that allows any phone or audio device to stream data directly to the vehicle. All of the Evoque’s audio capabilities are managed by a 380 Watt Meridian sound system that includes 11 speakers strategically placed throughout the interior of the vehicle.

While these advanced systems make the Range Rover Evoque a gem in the automobile industry, it has also kept with Land Rover’s commitment to environmental responsibility by helping to reduce CO2 emissions, waste products, and water consumption. While the extra $20,000 paint job for the Limited Edition version of the Range Rover Evoque is a nice touch, don’t let it make you think for a second that this vehicle isn’t already an amazing machine by itself.
