Land Rover has just announced two premium derivatives of the 2015 Range Rover Evoque: the Autobiography and the more agile Autobiography with its 285 hp turbocharged engine. Set to make their official debut in March, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the new Evoque Autobiography and Autobiography Dynamic feature a new premium grille design, jewel-like headlights and taillights, lower front valance and 20-inch forged alloy wheels.
Moreover, we find the Autobiography badging on the tailgate and front fender vents as well as a new body colour called Phoenix Orange and available on the across the Dynamic Evoque derivatives.
Inside, the Evoque Autobiography comes with a choice of six colours for its leather interior while the Autobiography Dynamic customers can choose from a dynamic plus leather interior with either sports or premium climate seats and a choice of four colours. The headrests feature the Autobiography embossed logo, while the tread plates illuminate the same logo.
The 2015 Range Rover Evoque Autobiography is available with the efficient 240 hp petrol or 190 hp diesel engines, bolted to a 9-speed ZF automatic transmission and available with four-wheel drive as an option. As we said, the 2015 Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic gets the 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine with 285 hp and 400 Nm of torque, bolted to the same 9-speed ZF transmission.
As an option, the Active Driverline is offered on the Evoque Autobiography, while the Autobiography Dynamic gets it as standard. Furthermore, the Autobiography Dynamic comes with upgraded 350mm front brake discs have been fitted, while Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVB) is standard equipment. TVB helps to reduce understeer on low- and high-grip surfaces, providing more responsive handling characteristics.
