The Range Rover Evoque and the Evoque Dynamic are getting the Autobiography nameplate for the 2015 model year. The Autobiography trim is well-known among Range Rover enthusiasts and it was only a matter of time before the Evoque received the honor of wearing the badge. It’s almost hard to believe that the Evoque will have been around for four model years when the Autobiography trim hits dealer floors.

The top-of-the-line 2015 Evoque will be set apart from its “lesser” brethren by a premium grill design, lower front valance, updated head and tail lamps, 20-inch alloy wheels, and unique interior details. The Evoque Autobiography (pictured below in Orkney Grey and sporting rather unusual luggage) will be available with the standard 236-horsepower (240 PS*) gasoline engine or a 187-horsepower (190 PS) diesel (at least in the UK). The Evoque Autobiography Dynamic (pictured below in the new Phoenix Orange) will get a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that produces 281-horsepower  (285 PS). A nine-speed transmission is standard on both.

Land Rover InControl Apps

Land Rover’s InControl™ Apps technology will also be featured. This functionality connects Land Rover InControl Apps hosted on the owner’s smartphone to the Range Rover’s touchscreen via a dedicated USB port. Hopefully this technology won’t go the way of the now-useless phone cradle as found in my former Land Rover LR3. I was always tempted to turn that space into something useful, but never quite got around to tearing that console apart.
