My Wife's - Range Rover Evoque
           


If you need a second car, this is a gem


Land Rover engineers have developed the Range Rover Evoque to provide customers with a polished all-wheel driving experience that combines dynamic and sporty handling with responsive, effortless performance and refinement. The Evoque's chassis and Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) has been tuned to deliver precise and responsive steering at lower speeds, making the car nimble and fun to drive in the city. As the Evoque is lighter, with a compact footprint, it reacts quickly and positively to driver inputs at higher speeds, ensuring that enthusiastic drivers are offered the agility they want from a car.

Steering :

Achieving the desired dynamic character in the Evoque required an evolution of the Range Rover DNA. Particular objectives were to increase steering precision and agility at lower speeds, so that the car was more responsive and fun-to-drive in typical urban driving conditions. While the Evoque's lighter weight, more compact footprint and lower centre of gravity helped to achieve a more agile character, key engineering changes were required to deliver the required responses.
  • Electric power assisted steering
  • The variable-ratio speed-sensitive EPAS system was tuned for immediate responses around the straight-ahead position, and a precise, linear character.
  • To enhance the precision and feedback, the steering rack is solidly mounted on the front subframe.

Brakes :
  • Front - Ventilated 11.8 in discs with 2 piston callipers
  • Rear - Solid 11.9 in discs with 2 piston calipers
  • Master Cylinder - Servo-assisted master cylinder
  • Assistance - Anti-lock braking system, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist
  • Fluid - Mercedes-Benz DOT 4+
  • Electronic park brake (EPB)
The braking system is complemented by the latest generation of electronic active safety systems, including :
  • Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
  • Electronic brake force distribution (EBD)
  • Emergency brake lights (EBL)
  • Emergency brake assist (EBA)
  • Corner Brake Control (CBC) - this function has been carefully calibrated to prevent rear end instability when braking in corners. The system optimises the side-to-side braking balance for all four wheels, to help ensure that the car follows the driver's intended path.




Stability and Traction Control :

Active safety performance is further enhanced by a comprehensive range of state-of-the-art traction and stability systems, configured using Range Rover's expertise in all-terrain performance to maximise stability and safety in the widest range of driving conditions.

At the heart of the systems is a sophisticated electronic control unit which monitors the car at all times, and can individually adjust the braking forces and engine torque applied to each wheel to optimise the handling and help the driver retain control in extreme manoeuvres.

The control unit takes into account a wide variety of inputs including individual wheel speeds, cornering yaw rates, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, vehicle speed, gear and clutch engagement, brake pressure, accelerator position and the settings of the hill descent and Terrain ResponseTM systems.

To complement the car's responsive on-road handling, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque features refinements to the Dynamic Stability Control and Roll Stability Control systems which further enhance cornering behaviour and stability.

The full suite of traction and stability systems includes :
  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)
  • Roll Stability Control (RSC)
  • Traction Control System (TCS)
  • Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) - for improved towing safety
  • Hill Start Assist - holds the brakes for a few seconds, to help the driver pull away smoothly and safely on steep inclines
  • Hill Descent Control (HDC) and Gradient Release Control (GRC)
  • Engine Drag torque Control (EDC)

Wheels and Tryres :
  • 19 Inch Six-Spoke �STYLE 603� Alloy Wheels
  • 235/55R19 Tyres Front and Rear
