Land Rover has brought a series of well-known road signs to life as part of a unique urban capability test for the New Range Rover Evoque.

The original compact SUV not only showcased its all-terrain credentials in London’s financial district, but also demonstrated the smart technology that makes it a leader in its class.

Drivers and passers-by watched on as the Evoque traversed obstacles framed by four-metre high warning triangles, recreating the familiar road sign graphics used to warn drivers of ‘uneven road’ and ‘steep hill’. Both challenges showcased the indisputable all-terrain capability of Land Rover’s new vehicle architecture in an urban environment.

Pete Simkin, Chief Programme Engineer, said:

“The New Range Rover Evoque is built for the city, but not at the expense of trademark all-terrain capability. Bringing these two worlds together in such an eye-catching and unique way was a great demonstration of the engineering and technical revolution behind our luxury compact SUV.”

On the banks of the River Thames, the smallest SUV in the Range Rover family negotiated a 40-degree ramp representing ‘steep hill’ to demonstrate how the new Evoque’s short overhangs, 25-degree approach angle and use of Land Rover’s renowned Hill Descent Control enable the Evoque to go above and beyond. 

The introduction of second-generation Active Driveline combined with 212mm ground clearance provided optimum traction and assured on-road ability and refinement as the Range Rover Evoque drove across staggered speed humps, representing the ‘uneven road’ warning sign. 

A real-world version of ‘wild animals’ then deftly demonstrated the segment-first ClearSight Rear View Mirror technology. With the flick of a switch, this smart tech enables the driver to see past objects obscuring visibility of the road behind.  

The Range Rover Evoque has been built on Land Rover’s new Premium Transverse Architecture to accommodate a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) powertrain which will join the range later this year. Offered with a suite of advanced technologies from launch - including the world’s first ‘Ground View’ technology – the new Evoque is more capable than ever before providing driving refinement, precise body control and agile handling across any terrain. 

The New Range Rover Evoque will be available in South Africa from May.
