Land Rover has just announced two premium derivatives of the 2015 Range Rover Evoque: the Autobiography and the more agile Autobiography Dynamic with its 285 hp 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine.
Set to make their official debut in March, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the new Range Rover Evoque Autobiography and Range Rover Autobiography Dynamic feature a bolder design marked by a more dynamic body styling, new premium grille design, jewel-like headlights and taillights, as well as 20-inch forged alloy wheels and lower front valance.
Moreover, we find the Autobiography ingot badging on the tailgate and front fender vents as well as a new body color called Phoenix Orange and available on the across the Dynamic Evoque derivatives.
Inside, the 2015 Range Rover Evoque Autobiography comes with a choice of six colors for its leather interior while the 2015 Range Rover Autobiography Dynamic customers can choose from a dynamic plus leather interior with either sports or premium climate seats and a choice of four colors. The headrests feature the Autobiography embossed logo, while the tread plates illuminate the same logo.
The 2015 Range Rover Evoque Autobiography is available with two engine choices: a highly efficient petrol mill that delivers 240 hp of output or a diesel unit that provides 190 hp of motive power. Either of these engines is bolted to a 9-speed ZF automatic transmission and available with four-wheel drive system as an option.
As we said, the 2015 Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic gets the 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine with 285 hp of max output and 400 Nm of peak torque, as paired to the same 9-speed ZF transmission.
As an option, the Active Driverline is offered on the 2015 Range Rover Evoque Autobiography, but comes as standard on the 2015 Range Rover Autobiography Dynamic.
Furthermore, the 2015 Range Rover 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.
On the other hand, the new Range Rover Evoque Autobiography and Range Rover Autobiography Dynamic as well as the rest of the range is now available with the new Land Rover InControl Apps. InControl Apps allows smartphone apps to be displayed and controlled -- with their original look and feel -- from the touchscreen of the vehicles. To enable this, customers only have to download the Land Rover InControl Apps to their smartphone and linked it to the dedicated USB port in the vehicle.
