The 2015 Land Rover Evoque will be offered with two new limited editions: the luxurious Autobiography and the powerful, agile Autobiography Dynamic. The Autobiography trim line is also found on the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, marked by a selection of premium interior and exterior upgrades. Sitting above the existing Pure, Dynamic, and Prestige derivatives, the Autobiography is the top of the line. These limited edition models feature enhanced body styling, 20-inch forged alloy wheels and premium leather interior details.

These gains are due to a newly designed single-scroll turbocharger, recalibrated engine-management software, and a new sports exhaust system tuned for excellent flow characteristics while still delivering a muscular sound. Also retuned for more responsive sportier driver inputs on the Autobiography Dynamic is the 9-speed ZF automatic transmission with adaptive shift program. Drivers will notice how the gearshifts seamlessly adapt to their behavior.

To enhance Land Rover’s connected-car technologies, Land Rover InControl™ Apps have been developed with some of the world’s leading smartphone app developers to be perfectly suited for in-car use, such as satellite-navigation, music streaming, internet radio and location services. Debuting across the range, InControl™ Apps allow smartphone apps to be displayed and controlled with their original look and feel from the vehicle’s touchscreen. Owners simply connect their compatible iPhone® or Android™ smartphone through a dedicated USB port to safely and effectively access their smartphone content on the vehicle’s touchscreen display.

“The Range Rover Evoque raised customer expectations in the compact SUV segment and has been applauded for its ground-breaking design and premium interior” shares Land Rover Design Director & Chief Creative Officer Gerry McGovern. “The Autobiography is a natural progression, bringing luxury that’s more commonly associated with far larger, more expensive models to a premium compact SUV, while reaffirming its ability to resonate with customers on an emotional level.”

The Range Rover Evoque is perfectly suited for busy urban environments with park assist semi-autonomous parking, a surround camera system, continuous blind-spot monitoring, and reverse traffic detection all available. Since its launch in 2011, the Evoque has won 157 international awards and the Autobiography limited edition are sure to turn heads.
