When Land Rover officially revealed the Range Rover Evoque they didn't include a single shot of the five-door baby crossover utility. Thankfully, someone with early access to the upcoming Paris Motor Show floor decided that was some kind of crime, and so they took shots of the more family-minded Evoque occupying the Land Rover stand. The secret snapper also got images of the cabin, and we think it's beautiful distillation of the Range Rover Sport's interior language. We can't wait to see it ourselves next week.

For now, have a look at the link below for more shots of the Evoque five-door, and be sure to hit the jump for a video of the two-door.

UPDATE: Range Rover has written to say that this is a five-door prototype of the Evoque shown to dealers at a pre-show event for dealers in Paris. It will not be appearing at the show, only the two-door.

      This CUV seems like a better fit as a Jaguar than a Land Rover. I'm sure Jaguar is thinking about expanding into this market. The design itself is very new Jaguar-esque. Considering the size and front print of the combined brands, only one brand can really market the CUV. So, I guess a CUV isn't in the cards at Jaguar. But it should have been.

      Land Rover already has a vehicle it could have improved of the same size: the LR2/Freelander 2. Going into the CUV market didn't really go well for Jeep and I think it somewhat tarnished the Jeep brand. Seeing that Land Rover doesn't sell the Defender in the US, I think does stand to lose some of it's rugged image. Perhaps Land Rover should consider re-releasing the Defender in the US in conjunction with the Evoque.

      Another note, I don't see any logic in the Eqoque branding scheme. Double branding rarely makes sense. The Range Rover Sport is more of trim of the Range Rover than a fully fledged option of itself. However, the Evoque is not a Range Rover. Just don't call the 2-door version the "Land Rover Ranger Rover Evoque Sport." That would be ridiculous.

        The Evoque actually has no Land Rover badging.

      They can call it a Land Rover, but everything from the wheels up to the roof screams MINI.

      Ford Flex called and wants it roof back
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's a Mini-badged mini-sized Flex!

        Still, if Mini ever maxes a full-size CUV, I'm sure they can buy the Flex chassis and stampings for pennies on the dollar.

        Aeromax, there actually isn't an apostrophe there. You don't use possessive apostrophes on pronouns :). The single exception is "one's".

        I think some basic exterior aspects of MINI's & Land Rovers are forever connected. Their "floating" roof design, I think, is one big characteristic that they will always share, no matter who owns the brands.

      hmmm, in the video the led air inlet looks round...interesting. Not sure i'm sold on the styling, this overly sloped rear end doesnt cut it for me, Croostiurs Bimmers...they all look cartoonish...will have to see one in the flesh though. I do have a curiousity on the drivetrain, what changes if any will LR do to fords 2.0 ecoboost?

      They are returning to the fine British auto industry quality of the 70s and 80s

      Nice door alignment...
        • 4 Years Ago
        perhaps it may be the reson people like Land Rovers in Black....lol
      • 4 Years Ago
      I like these, though are the door/fender lines supposed to line up that way?
      • 4 Years Ago
      This might as well spew cash from the tailpipe. LR is going to sell a LOT of these. Well done (yeah, except for the door alignment...).
      • 4 Years Ago
      NOW I like the Evoque. A 3-door CUV is just silly.
        • 4 Years Ago
        *if they fix that jarring door missalignment.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Completely disagree. 2 door SUV is unique, cool, different. 4 door is just another boring me-too-mobile to get lost in the parking lot.
