Range Rover Evoque Landmark Edition celebrates the compact SUV’s stellar success

It’s hard to believe that the first production-spec Range Rover Evoque rolled off the assembly line six years ago. But it’s not at all surprising that the luxury compact SUV has become Land Rover’s best-selling model in that period. Over 600,000 Evoques have been built at Land Rover’s Halewood plant in the U.K making it the company’s most successful model. To celebrate the momentous occasion, Land Rover has launched a limited-run special model named the “Landmark” edition. The model comes in a choice of three bespoke colors – Moraine Blue, Yulong White and Corris Grey – and arrives with 19-inch alloy wheels and dark grey body trims.

Inside the cabin, the Landmark Edition features Ebony leather seats with contrasting Light Lunar stitching and a dark gray-brushed satin center console. Technical features include a InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, on a 10.0in screen, with apps including Spotify and 4G wi-fi hotspot functionality. The special edition is priced at £39,000 ($50,500 approximately).

“What makes Evoque so special is its relevance. The design remains modern and fresh. The Evoque is widely acknowledged to have brought a whole new youthful generation of buyers into the Range Rover brand, including more women,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover chief design officer in a statement. Range Rover says an Evoque rolls off the Halewood production line every 170 seconds and it sold nearly 18,000 models in March. The automaker is already testing the second-generation on the British streets and is expected to be launched next year.
