All-New 2020 Range Rover Evoque Leaks Online Ahead Of Today’s Official Unveiling

Even though we’re just a few hours away from the 2020 Evoque’s official unveiling in London, the British crossover has just been leaked on Instagram, with Velar-like qualities both inside and out.

The images were shared on social media by one Dr. Müller, giving us a lot more than just a sneak peak at the new Evoque’s exterior styling, as well as the overall design of the cabin, which looks a lot more high-tech than before.

If it ain’t broke..

It’s quite obvious that Land Rover did not meddle with the Evoque’s “recipe”, so to speak, which makes perfect sense knowing just how successful the nameplate has been on a global level. Unless you’re completely unfamiliar with this vehicle, odds are you won’t be mistaking the new model for anything else once they start appearing on our streets, which will begin to happen next year.

Right off the bat, we notice that Land Rover designers used the Velar as inspiration not just for the front end design of the new Evoque, but also the rear, which has similar or dare we say nearly identically-shaped taillights. In fact, calling this a baby-Velar wouldn’t be that much of a stretch, despite the fact that it definitely has its own separate identity.

Overall, it looks pretty much just like we thought it would, although the bottom half of the front bumper is perhaps a bit more rugged-looking than what we envisioned with this rendering.

Future-proof cabin

Even though the overall design of the dashboard is very similar to what it was like before, the new Evoque has a slightly different upper dash design, where the air vents are not as exposed anymore (like on the Velar). Then there’s the fact that instead of one touchscreen display, you now have access to three screens, two of which you can operate with your fingers – the third being the digital gauge cluster.

The steering wheel is also new, or should we say borrowed from the Velar, although you won’t hear any complaints from us, since the overall aesthetic of the interior is without a doubt an improvement. The older model actually had a slightly sporty-looking cabin and in some places, it didn’t look nor did it feel all that qualitative.

As for engine specs, performance figures and available active safety and convenience features, we should learn everything once the all-new 2020 Evoque is officially unveiled later today, at 14:45 EST (19:45 GMT).

    The guys at Jaguar Land Rover managed to create a second-gen Evoque that looks as good as the original one, specially considering how well designed is the soon to be succeeded model.

  • Jason Panamera

    This baby velar looks like class above than previous gen.

    • Andrewthecarguy

      Agreed.

  • Anton Yuri Calderon

    Looks too much like the Kia Soul. : (

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      Oh my goodness! You’re right!
      How could they not see this during the design phase…

    • no25

      I hope you’re joking. Kia Soul? Really?

    • Iberian Rekluse

      I agree.

      • Dr Bjorn K. Von Strangefingger

        Yeah, it kinda does. Designers getting lazy or what???

    • Lol What?!?!?

  • Frase

    Oh my god, and I thought Jaguar’s been lazily coasting. I’ll be honest, while I was never a fan of the first Evoque, I do understand the superstition in keeping its face to keep the money coming, but could they have been just a tiny bit more creative?

  • john1168

    This looks great! I love how there’s a lot of Velar inspiration in it’s design. I hope it’s got good performance to match it’s looks.

    • Let’s hope better than the previous

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    it looks similar compared to the first one but this time it has velar’s influences

  • Bash

    I don’t like this gear shifter anymore, once you’ve seen the rotary one on all thier reset products then will look like a step back not forward!

    • People and journalist complained about it, you had to wait fo it to rise. Now it’s simple like on all auto gear boxes. But I agree for design looks like a step back, and it’s no like if this was a sport car or going offroad in real life. The surprise comes from the new dash having big rotary dials… And this shifter is big, in the middle, waist of space (still is the same as for Jaguar, a shame).

  • محمد علي

    Ugly as always

  • Save India

    disappoint to see that evoque has lost its unique styling appeal . first gen evoque was only sold for its bold design . it looks like a mini velar .

  • Marwan Abdul Hak

    It is good looking but soooo expected and not shockingly striking like the previous Evoque. Could have been more special rather than a shrunken Velar. And yes, why no 2 doors anymore ?! 😡

  • Nordschleife

    While sexy I just don’t see any innovation when it comes to design. The Evoque brought in the styling current styling cues and now it’s just a hodgepodge of all the current cues.

  • Probably is ZF tech inside. But they make their own JLR gear shift.
    The problem is… With dash, Jaguar and Land Rover products are becoming too similar, it’s going to hard just making fun of VW ag for that. They should really decide wich cars are supposed to be what. Maybe the Range Rover, the Velar and the Evoque are not supposed to be sporty, keep the regular shift gear for Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Jaguars? Whatever they do they should think about not loosing each cars and brands identity and purpose. Land Rovers cars are becoming too similar.
