2020 Evoque is a baby Velar

RR recently showcased the new look for the 2020 Evoque and it unsurprisingly borrows a lot of styling cues from the Velar. It will also offer the first mild hybrid for the brand, with a new 48V system. Things look relatively unchanged inside the cabin. Thoughts on the new guise?

Love what they have done with the rear of the car. Not expecting much pure electric range from the mild hybrid but its good that JLR is finally developing these kinds of powertrains.

Not impressed at the fact the front end still looks like the outgoing model. Influence to the front end from the Velar in proportion to the rear end would have done the new Evoque some real justice.

Most hybrid SUV's only deliver around 20 miles of pure electric range, so I wouldn't expect anything class leading from the Evoque. I do think they should consider expanding this 48V system to their XE and XF models.

Taking care of the more fundamental stuff like platform/chassis weight and ability to keep the Evoque competitive was my main concern anyways.
As long as Range Rover follows up with improved powertrain and drivetrain configurations i'll stay interested.

There are already some leaks that suggest the 2019 XE is doing exactly this. Hybridization is the way forward for JLR, especially with the growing disinterest in their diesels.

I'm hopeful that will happen. So far I really dig its sportier design profile. The XE's design has been too dull for my taste
