Geneva Motor Show: 2013 Range Rover Evoque gets the Black Design Pack

Article by Christian A., on March 5, 2013

At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, a Fuji White Range Rover Evoque takes centre stage showcasing company’s striking new Black Design Pack. Available on the Dynamic derivative, buyers who are interested in this pack can order it from April this year. As you can see from the photos, the Black Design Pack emboldens the assertive and confident stance of the Range Rover Evoque ‘Dynamic’.

The new pack offers 20-inch, 9-spoke forged wheels painted in gloss black, never before offered as an option. Moreover, the exterior design includes dark exhaust finishers painted in Santorini Black, a gloss black rear bumper and inner and outer sump guard. Furthermore, the vehicle features darkened front headlights and fog lamps, while the rear lamps have been modified to give a clear effect so that they do not visually appear permanently red.

Santorini Black painted Range Rover lettering across both the bonnet and tailgate and a rear sport spoiler complete the look. For those who don’t know, the Black Design Pack made its debut earlier this year on the Evoque Special Edition model.

Special Edition is currently still on sale and available in both coupé and 5-door body styles. Customers can choose from two exterior colour schemes unique to the Special Edition: a Sicilian Yellow exterior body finish with a Santorini Black contrast roof, or a Santorini Black exterior body finish with a Sicilian Yellow contrast roof and door mirrors.

The interior features yellow contrast stitching on seats, central storage area, door trims and fascia mid-section, plus an anodised yellow horizontal finisher.

New Range Rover Evoque is available with the efficient and lightweight 2.2 litre diesel engine, in both TD4 150PS and SD4 190PS guise, combined with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive.

The two-wheel drive eD4 is powered by the 150PS TD4 version of the engine combined with a six-speed manual gearbox and produces just 129g/km CO2. The lightweight Land Rover Si4 petrol engine delivers 240PS and is combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive.

Taking a page directly out of the LRX concept car which was renowned for its innovative interpretation of the classic Range Rover, the all-new Land Rover Range Rover Evoque comes out with a new and edgy look that is matched by its meticulous engineering consistent with the Range Rover’s core values of interior luxury, refined performance, and all-terrain capability. This evolution in design is a bold upgrade from its former look, but the Evoque manages to remain faithful to the core and legacy of the Range Rover. These were the intent and the inspiration behind the Rover Evoque, according to Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern.

Range Rover Evoque is as powerful as it is dynamic, with a rising beltline, a muscled shoulder that defines the entire car, and a floating roofline that tapers and spells the car’s uniqueness.

One glance at the Evoque and one notices its purposeful stance, and this is highlighted in how the wheels of the Range Rover Evoque are positioned out to the four corners. To significantly reduce the Range Rover Evoque’s visual front and rear overhangs, the car comes with wide wheel arches integrated deftly into the body and the corners that have been expertly sculpted to perfection.

Evoque is as much a delight on the outside as well as on the inside. The luxury cabin of the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a picture of fine craftmanship and style. One can easily spot in the Range Rover Evoque’s interior the highest quality materials used to produce a car that can be described as nothing short of elegant.

2013 Land Rover Evoque Black Design Pack

A striking Fuji White Range Rover Evoque showcased the new Black Design Pack to full effect on Land Rover's 2013 Geneva Motor Show stand. Available on the bold and sporting Dynamic derivative, customers can place their order from April 2013.

The stunning coupé and 5-door models already offer unprecedented customer choice and personalisation options across three design themes: Pure, Prestige and Dynamic, to give every customer the opportunity to tailor their Evoque to suit their lifestyle.

The Black Design Pack emboldens the assertive and confident stance of the Range Rover Evoque 'Dynamic', with a host of striking black exterior detailing exclusive to this model, including 20-inch, 9-spoke forged wheels painted in gloss black, never before offered as an option.

All exterior bright finishes have been removed to create the Black Design Pack. Dark exhaust finishers painted in Santorini Black are complemented by a gloss black rear bumper and inner and outer sump guard, which is carried through on the front.

Darkened front headlights and fog lamps continue the black theme whilst the rear lamps have been modified to give a clear effect so that they do not visually appear permanently red. Santorini Black painted 'RANGE ROVER' lettering across both the bonnet and tailgate and a rear sport spoiler complete the look.

"With over 100,000 vehicles sold in its first full year of sales - more than any other previous Land Rover model, and 124 global awards, the Range Rover Evoque has proved itself as our most desirable product and continues to show rapid growth worldwide," said John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.

"Offering our customers even greater choice with the option of the striking Black Design Pack can only make the Evoque appeal to an even bigger audience. With its dynamic and sporty handling, formidable all-terrain performance, choice of premium luxury interiors and colour and feature combinations, customers truly can personalise their Evoque to suit their personality," added John Edwards.

The Black Design Pack made its debut earlier this year on the Sicilian Yellow Special Edition Evoque. Available in coupé and 5-door, customers can choose from two exterior colour schemes unique to the Special Edition: a Sicilian Yellow exterior body finish with a Santorini Black contrast roof, or a Santorini Black exterior body finish with a Sicilian Yellow contrast roof and door mirrors. Unique interior finishes include yellow contrast stitching on seats, central storage area, door trims and fascia mid-section, plus an anodised yellow horizontal finisher. Orders are being taken now for the Special Edition, with deliveries beginning in May 2013.

The Range Rover Evoque is powered by a choice of engines. Land Rover's powerful, efficient and lightweight 2.2 litre diesel engine, in both TD4 150PS and SD4 190PS guise, combined with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. The two-wheel drive eD4 is powered by the 150PS TD4 version of the engine combined with a six-speed manual gearbox and produces just 129g/km CO2. The lightweight Land Rover Si4 petrol engine delivers 240PS and is combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive.

Customers can also choose from a broad selection of Range Rover accessories. The accessory range includes exterior and interior features, together with a comprehensive choice of practical loading and towing items.
