The Range Rover Evoque range has been expanded with the arrival of a new Autobiography Dynamic model that also includes a more powerful version of the Evoque’s petrol engine.

The Autobiography Dynamic is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that has been upgraded to produce 285PS and 400Nm – 45PS and 60Nm more than standard.

It’s mated to a nine-speed ZF automatic transmission that has also received a few tweaks to sharpen its responses.

The new Autobiography Dynamic model also includes the company’s Active Driveline as standard, the system engaging four-wheel-drive automatically when required.

The steering, too, has been sharpened, with a particular focus on precision around the straight-ahead position, while the chassis benefits from revised geometry, firmer springs and retuned dampers.

Larger 350mm front brake discs and the addition of Land Rover’s Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVB) system round out the mechanical changes.

Externally, the new model gains a new grille and lower front valance, new headlights and tail-lights, 20-inch alloy wheels, and Autobiography badges.

A new colour – Phoenix Orange – also makes its debut on the new model.

Inside, there are six colour options for the leather upholstery, plus the choice of dynamic plus or premium climate seats.

The Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
