All-Star Award Adds to Growing List of Honours for the Smallest, Lightest, Most Fuel Efficient Range Rover Ever Produced
MAHWAH, N.J. (November 9, 2011) – Land Rover is proud to announce that the all-new 2012 Range Rover Evoque is an AUTOMOBILE Magazine 2012 All-Star adding to the newest Range Rover model's growing list of accolades.
"We're excited to have the 2012 Range Rover Evoque be named an All-Star by AUTOMOBILE Magazine," said Andy Goss, President, Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC. "To receive the AUTOMOBILE Magazine honour and other recent SUV of the Year accolades demonstrates that the world is in fact ready for a smaller, more fuel efficient, luxury SUV."
"Easily the best work credited to designer Gerry McGovern’s studio, the Range Rover Evoque is first and foremost a design triumph. The company has demonstrated an uncanny ability to find increasingly small and sometimes tiny holes in the market and fill them with capable off-road vehicles whose style expertly complements their serious substance."
- AUTOMOBILE Magazine contributing writer and columnist Jamie Kitman.
The prestigious All-Star awards recognize 10 vehicles chosen annually by the editorial staff of AUTOMOBILE Magazine.
The 2012 Range Rover Evoque is the smallest, lightest, most fuel efficient Range Rover ever produced. The vehicle stays true to the core values of Range Rover, providing premium levels of craftsmanship, luxury, performance and Land Rover multi-terrain capability while embodied in a more compact package. The Range Rover Evoque 4WD achieves 5.7 l/100km (2WD 4.9 l/100km) and sends a message that the company is serious about sustainability and determined to deliver vehicles that are both relevant and highly desirable.
