The new Range Rover Evoque has been revealed.
The second generation of the model, it is available to order now.
At launch, the engine range starts with a 2.0-litre, 150hp diesel, with official combined fuel economy of up to 44.9mpg.
Other engine options are 2.0-litre diesels with 180hp (41.3mpg) and 240hp (40.4mpg); and 2.0-litre petrols with 200hp (30.7mpg), 249hp (30.4mpg), and 300hp (30.3mpg).
CO2 emissions are said to range between 143g/km and 186g/km.
All engines come with a nine-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive as standard, apart from the 150hp diesel which is also available with a six-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive.
All automatic cars come with the 48V mild hybrid system, which allows the engine to shut off at speeds below 11mph when the driver applies the brakes, and assists the engine under acceleration.
A full plug-in hybrid powertrain will join the range in around 12 months, along with a three-cylinder petrol engine.
The new Evoque's wheelbase has been lengthened, meaning more rear legroom and the boot is now 591 litres, 10% larger than the previous iteration.
Available technology includes Land Rover's Terrain Response 2 system, which adjusts the car's set-up depending on the surface it is driven on.
Also available is a Ground View system that shows the driver a 180-degree view under the front of the vehicle, helpful with low-speed manoeuvring and tackling rough terrain; and a rear-view mirror that transforms into an HD video screen if the regular mirror view is obscured by rear-seat passengers or luggage.
Available trim levels are a base model, S, SE, and HSE, with an R-Dynamic package available on top for an extra £1,500.
There's also a First Edition launch model.
Base trim prices start at £31,600 for the front-wheel drive 150hp diesel, and increase to £40,350 for the 300hp petrol.
Prices rise by £3,150 for S trim, £6,650 for SE trim, and £9,650 for HSE trim.
First Edition prices are £49,550 for a 180hp diesel, and £50,400 for a 249hp petrol.
