2015 Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Editions Revealed

The folks at Land Rover are introducing Autobiography versions of the Range Rover Evoque for the 2015 model year. The included upgrades should make an already desirable small utility vehicle even more lust-worthy.

Autobiography Dynamic trim versions are powered by an upgraded 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder engine. In this application it delivers 281 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, a sizable increase compared to the regular version of this powerplant. Those enhancements come courtesy of revised management software and a new turbocharger, among other changes.

Standard Autobiography models are powered by a 240 hp 2.0-liter turbo or a fuel-efficient diesel. Whichever version you choose a nine-speed ZF automatic transmission is standard, as is four-wheel drive.

The Autobiography Dynamic’s chassis has received a number of upgrades; the revised suspension provides better handling while the front brake rotors have grown to span 350 millimeters for more confident stopping performance.

Land Rover is also offering some intriguing infotainment technology in the Evoque range. The company’s all-new InControl Apps system is compatible with Apple and Android smartphones.
