Einer der erfolgreichsten Land Rover ist der Range Rover Evoque. Für das Modelljahr 2014 erhält das schicke SUV eine neue 9-Gang Automatik und einiges an neuen Elektronik-Features. Die Motoren sollen weniger Sprit verbrauchen und äußerlich aufgehübscht wurde der Evoque zudem.

Hier noch die erste englische Pressemitteilung über die technischen News beim neuen Range Rover Evoque im Modelljahr 2014:

For the 2014 model, the driver assistance capabilities of Evoque are significantly enhanced by the introduction of features including: Park Exit (to automatically exit parallel parking bays), Perpendicular Park (to position the car centrally in parking bays), Closing Vehicle Sensing and Reverse Traffic Detection (to warn drivers of oncoming traffic), Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition and Wade Sensing.

The brand new Land Rover InControlTM connected car system, available as an option, incorporates two new features – InControlTM Remote and InControlTM Secure.

Land Rover InControlTM Remote allows owners to trigger an SOS Emergency Call which automatically informs the emergency services of the vehicle’s position, in the event of an accident.  A button concealed behind a flap in the overhead console (to avoid accidental triggering), activates the system manually.  A second button connects to Land Rover Assistance if the need for technical assistance arises.

Land Rover InControlTM Secure tracksthe vehicle in the event of a theft using advance tracking technology. It raises a silent alarm at a secure operating centre where a third party service provider will assist the relevant local authorities in a timely recovery of the vehicle.  The system ensures the vehicle complies with the Thatcham Category 6 standard.

Available as an option, Active Driveline, is the world’s first ‘on demand’ four-wheel drive system which enhances agility and improves fuel efficiency by operating in front-wheel drive only during steady-state driving at speeds above 22mph.  The new system monitors vehicle dynamics and automatically reconnects four-wheel drive (within 300 milliseconds) whenever it is needed.  Active Driveline also features Active Torque Biasing with electronic-Diff (e-Diff) technology to distribute torque between the rear wheels, optimising traction and stability. Active Driveline will be available initially on the Si4 petrol engine.

In addition, a Torque Vectoring by Braking feature, available across all powertrains, further enhances agility and safety by redirecting torque between all four wheels to counteract understeer. It features in both the Active Driveline and the Evoque’s standard four-wheel drive system.
