Land Rover is expanding the Autobiography name and introducing it to the Range Rover Evoque for the first time with the more powerful, more agile Autobiography Dynamic model, featuring a 281bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 400Nm of torque and optimised chassis for enhanced performance and sharper handling.
The engine packs an extra 45bhp, compared to standard Evoque’s 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and the 9-speed ZF transmission now responds even more keenly to sportier driver inputs, including when left in Drive.
Active driveline comes as standard equipment on the Autobiography Dynamic, improving traction, enhancing agility and improving fuel efficiency by engaging four-wheel drive seamlessly and automatically when required.
Other updates include tuned steering for additional on-centre precision, upgraded suspension geometry, firmer spring rates and recalibrated adaptive dampers, as well as upgraded 350mm front brake discs.
Land Rover InControlTM Apps also debuts across the range with this new model, enabling vehicle-optimised smartphone apps to be displayed and controlled with their original look and feel from the vehicle’s touchscreen.
Visually the Autobiography Dynamic is distinguished with a new premium grille design, lower front valance, jewel-like headlights and tail lamps and 20-inch forged alloy wheels, along with Autobiography badging.
The Evoque is the fastest-selling Land Rover of all time with more than 270,000 sales worldwide.
