2011 Essen Motor Show: Startech does the Range Rover Evoque

Article by Christian A., on November 27, 2011

Startech has introduced its modification package for the British crossover, the Range Rover Evoque. The tuning firm based in Germany actually presented an Evoque kit at the Dubai International Motor Show earlier this month but it has shown off a new one that has a totally different approach. Startech concentrated on just the on-road side of the Evoque, overlooking the other side.

It received a new front fascia, a new rear bumper that accommodates a diffuser, quadruple tailpipes, and a roof wing. It was also given some custom lightweight alloy rims that range between 20 and 22 inches. Moreover, the crossovover even has a suspension that lowers the car by up to 30 mm. Startech significantly improved on the interior. Its seats and door panels use a quilted leather finish.

The custom Evoque also comes with an Alcantara headliner, new trimming, a sports steering wheel and aluminum for the gear shifter and pedals.

In addition, Startech will also offer a performance package for the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit of the top-of-the-line SI4 version. The diesel lineup will be given a similar treatment later on.

Inside, the new Land Rover Range Rover Evoque boasts of an elegant designed and luxurious cabin that makes use of premium materials. What makes the new Land Rover Range Rover Evoque a unique offering in its segment is the fact that customers are given the chance to specify the vehicle’s cabin with soft, premium leather as well as elegantly tailored, twin-needle stitching on surfaces of the instrument panel, doors and seats.

According to Gerry McGovern, the cabin’s strong yet simple architecture can be seen through the bold intersection between the instrument panel’s solid horizontal elements and the center console’s dynamic vertical lines. Serving as a strong contrast to the supple feel of interior’s natural hides are authentic and exquisitely crafted metal finishes that serves as a visual reminder of the cabin’s superior quality.

Contained below a compact curved binnacle, the instrument cluster has been designed to make the interior feel sportier and more premium. For instance, the twin dials -- featuring a 3D form with its illuminated chaplets and needles – have been set deep in circular housings with bright chrome rims. The Range Rover Evoque provides drivers with a lower seating position than in one of the larger Range Rover models, allowing it to offer a sportier feel while retaining the important Command Driving Position.

This allows the Range Rover Evoque – despite its low-profile coupé roofline – to offer more headroom than what is usually offered by many sporting saloons. Aside from its generous ground clearance, the new Range Rover Evoque boasts of better breakover angle, approach angle and departure angle than its competition.
