2014 Range Rover Evoque Brings its 9-Speed to Frankfurt

The 2014 Range Rover Evoque, which will be on sale by the end of the year, is showing off its styling tweaks and nine-speed automatic transmission at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The new nine-speed transmission will be standard across the 2014 Range Rover Evoque lineup, which also received a number of other changes to help improve fuel economy and driving dynamics. Minor tweaks to the exterior styling are subtle while the British automaker has also added a stop-start system, which was previously unavailable on the automatic Evoque.

More fuel-saving technology that’s new include Active Driveline, which allows four-wheel-drive Evoques to operate in front-wheel drive above 22 mph. According to Range Rover, all the additions help improve fuel efficiency by as much as 11 percent compared to the 2013 model year. Inside, the 2014 Range Rover Evoque remains mostly unchanged though it will receive Land Rover’s new InControlTM system that enables the driver to trigger emergency calls automatically in the case of an accident.
