Land Rover has released pictures and details of the five-door version of the new Range Rover Evoque. The five-door model will debut at the Los Angeles auto show on Nov. 17.
The British luxury SUV maker says the five-door will add extra practicality and greater family appeal to the Evoque, which will be the brand's smallest, lightest and most fuel-efficient model.
“The addition of the five-door to the Range Rover Evoque line-up extends the appeal of our brand still further,” Land Rover Managing Director Phil Popham said in a statement.
Like the three-door, which was first unveiled at the Paris auto show last month, the five-door Evoque will have a front-wheel drive version.
The five-door Evoque is 30mm (1.2 inches) taller than the three-door version, but the same length and width. Rear seat passengers benefit from 50mm (2 inches) more shoulder room.
Land Rover said the Evoque has better off-road capabilities than rival compact SUVs, with generous ground clearance, and better breakover and departure angles. It will offer the latest version of the company's Terrain Response system.
Engines include a new 240-hp, 2.0-liter gasoline unit with direct-fuel injection, turbocharging and twin variable valve timing and two 2.2-liter turbodiesels, with 190hp or 150hp.
The Evoque three- and five-door versions will go on sale in Europe next summer and in the United States in late 2011.
