Range Rover Evoque - Streets of London Video

Back in August, after Land Rover had unveiled the Range Rover Evoque at KP but before we got the mountains of bumph from LR giving us the inside leg measurments of the Evoque, we had a nudge from LR towards some ‘Spy’ shots of the Evoque out filming in London.

As we suspected at the time, that was just LR PR doing their job. But as our beady little eyes spotted different back ends on the Evoques in the ‘Spy’ shots we thought it worth the story. What we now know, of course, is that one of the Evoques in the shots was the Evoque Prestige and one was the Evoque Dynamic. Different models, different arses.

It’s always nice to complete the circle and answer your own questions, so when the VT of that ‘Spy’ shoot crossed our desks we thought it worth running. After all, although we had video of the RR Evoque when it was still the Land Rover LRX, we haven’t had video footage of the Range Rover Evoque.

Unlike Jaguar with the XJ who got to go to Paris to play at being Jacques Demy, Land Rover got lumbered with London. But London is every bit as beautiful as Paris and the VT for the Evoque is nicely shot. Familiarity breeds contempt, so shots of the Evoque on the Embankment and the City and Canary Wharf (and even the Limehouse Link?!) aren’t exactly evocative for us; but it’s a nicely produced video. Land Rover even saved up and managed to get a soundtrack on this one.

And the Evoque does look good.
