Range Rover Evoque 2019 pricing and specs details confirmed

Range Rover Evoque customers will be faced with a price rise when the compact SUV arrives in Australia in May, with the brand abandoning the entry-level Pure and instead opting for a better-equipped S trim to kick off the new range.

The Evoque will span seven trim levels with a choice of six engines when it arrives in Australia in May. The cancellation of the Pure spec means a $6090 price jump to the cheapest S, but it's a number the brand justifies with an increase in standard specification.

Shoppers can now opt for the new entry-level S cars in diesel or petrol guise (D150 - $64,640, D180 - $67,040 in diesel, or P200 - $62,670 and P250 - $68,840 in petrol), or you can step up the mid-spec SE trim, with also unlocks new engines (D150 - $70,580, D180 - $72,980 and D240 - $85,000 in diesel, or P200 - $68,610, P250 - $72,780 and P300 - $83,000 in petrol).

Finally, you’ve got the top-spec HSE trim, which arrives with just the two engine choices; the D240 diesel for $92,220 or the P300 petrol for $90,230. There are also First Edition trims; available with the D180 ($91,550) or P250 ($91,300) engines.

A sportier R-Dynamic body style is available on all the above trim/engine variants, and will set you back somewhere between $2970 and $3870 above the standard pricing.

Base-model car arrive with leather seats, dual-zone climate control, 18-inch alloys, LED headlights, a leather steering wheel and a 10-inch multimedia screen that pairs with a six-speaker stereo, and that offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with a second digital screen that replaces the old climate-control centre and controls most of the car's functions.

Taking center stage in the cabin is the 10-inch multimedia screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Taking center stage in the cabin is the 10-inch multimedia screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Step up to the SE, HSE or First Edition, and your wheels grow to 20-inch alloys, and you get auto headlights, very cool LED DRLs and a powered tailgate. HSE and First Edition cars also make use of a 10-speaker Meridian sound system.

There’s a total six engines on offer here; three diesel and three petrol choices, all of which pair with a nine-speed automatic that feeds power to all four wheels.

The least powerful options are the D150 diesel (110kW and 380NM) and the P200 petrol (147kW and 320Nm), before you step up to the D180 diesel (132kW and 430Nm) and P250 petrol (183kW and 365Nm), all of which form the only engine choices in the entry-level S trim.

The 2.0-litre diesel in D240 trim makes 177kW/500Nm. The 2.0-litre diesel in D240 trim makes 177kW/500Nm.

The SE shoppers can choose from all of the above, but also add the D240 diesel (177kW and 500Nm) or the P300 petrol (221kW and 400Nm). HSE shoppers can choose between only the D240 and P300 engines. Finally, First Edition cars are equipped with either the D180 or P250 engines.

Annoyingly, Australia finds itself a victim of our own poor fuel quality. While international markets make use of a mild-hybrid system designed to plug any torque holes on take-of, it's been deleted on all petrol engines for our market, with the exception of the P300. Happily, the diesel engines do get the tech here, thanks to their diesel particulate filters.

Expect to see the Range Rover Evoque in dealerships from May.
