Arden Evoque

We’re pretty sure we could write an entire blog that focused solely on the Land Rover aftermarket and bespoke vehicle markets. There seems to be a nearly endless array of accessories, kits, wheels, and full-on bespoke Land Rover and Range Rovers. Unfortunately, U.S.-based tuners are apparently too busy designing obnoxious bolt-on Honda Civic body kits to pay much attention to the Evoque, so once again we have a custom offering from Europe.

Arden, a German tuner of Jaguar, Land Rover, Bentley, MINI, and classic vehicles is offering a few custom bits for Range Rover Evoque owners. These are in addition to its previously announced Arden AR8 City-Roader (inset photo). The Arden AR8 City-Roader promises to be Arden’s flagship Evoque offering, and will feature custom front and rear styling updates, side skirts that have available optional illumination, a custom stainless steel exhaust system designed to offer increased power and a more throaty exhaust note, and Arden’s Dakar II custom wheels.

Arden AR8 City-Roader EvoqueOverall, Arden’s treatment of the black Evoque seen below is minimal compared to the aforementioned Arden AR8 City-Roader. There’s really one stand-out feature and that feature is, of course, the internally lit sidebars you can see in action in the photos below. The lights inside the sidebars can be activated by remote, which we suppose could come in handy. In addition to the sidebars — which beside offering a little light, appear to have no function other than to look kind of nifty and offer something to destroy when attempting to get into the bank parking lot — the Arden Evoque features stainless steel mesh grill inserts for the lower intakes, an ECU remap that increases horsepower by 25 to 30 and torque by about 36 ft.-lbs. on the 2.2-liter diesel, and a 30mm (1.18 inches) lowering job. 

Arden also stated the company plans to expand its Range Rover Evoque offerings in the future.
