The new Range Rover Evoque is currently on display at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, sadly only available for the press until Saturday when the show will be open to visitors. Just as we told you in mid-September, the Evoque will be manufactured at the Halewood plant in the United Kingdom and is scheduled to reach the market in the fall of 2011.

Based on the LRX concept, the Evoque relies on a 2.0-liter Si4 turbocharged engine with direct injection and twin variable valve timing, developing a maximum power of 240 hp. Performance figures are not yet available, but we do know that it will be offered with a new Adaptive Dynamics technology that benefits from MagneRide continuously variable dampers which maintains a comfortable and safe ride no matter the weather conditions.

Obviously, it will be offered with all-wheel drive with electronically-controlled Haldex center coupling, plus a number of other features such as hard drive navigation system, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry system, Surround Camera System with five digital cameras, including a reversing system for easier parking. Adaptive headlamps with auto headlamp dipping and heated windscreen will be offered as well.

A five-door version of the Evoque is also in the works but details are pretty limited when it comes to this particular configuration. However, it appears that such a model is likely to hit the market after the original version, so more details are expected to surface in the months to come.

Pricing details and specific market launches are to be revealed at a later date.
