The Si4 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which already delivers lively performance in current models, will be upped from 240PS to 285PS. To keep those extra horses in check, the front wheels will be fitted with larger, 350mm brake disks. Torque vectoring on all four wheels (using the brakes on the front and the Active Drivelines wet multiplate clutches on the rear) already comes as standard on the Si4.
JLR’s UK Managing Director, Jeremy Hicks says: ‘Demand remains strong two years after the start of production, and with the introduction of the Autobiography Dynamic, customers have more choice and access to a new heightened level of agility.’
As with current models, power will be delivered through the 9-speed ZF transmission, with the fuel-saving, torque-biasing Active Driveline coming as standard. The Autobiography Dynamic also promises sharper handling thanks to revisions to the chassis, stiffer springs and modifications to the active dampers.
Look out for a few exterior tweaks, including a revised grille, upgraded headlights and tail lamps and new 20-inch forged alloy wheels. The front wing vents and tailgate also receive Autobiography ingot badges, and all Dynamic models will also be available in the striking new Phoenix Orange.
Interior details include headrests embossed with the Autobiography logo, and Autobiography illuminated tread plates. Land Rover’s new InControlTM system, which enables owners to customize their vehicle using smartphone apps, will also be available across the Evoque range.
Deliveries will commence some time in the final quarter of this year, and if you want one you'll need pockets about £50,000 deep.
