► Range Rover Evoque Landmark
► Special edition hails SUV’s sales
► Marks 600k sales, priced from £39k
Big Ben, the white cliffs of Dover and the Angel of the North need to move along, as there’s a new Landmark in town – albeit in car form. This is the new Range Rover Evoque Landmark, a special edition of Land Rover’s baby posh-roader that hails the car’s global sales success.
The Halewood factory in the north west of England has built its 600,000th Evoque since 2011. That’s an astonishing stat – and one that makes you realise how significant the trend-setting small Range Rover has been for Gaydon. The LRX concept car has a lot to answer for…
Range Rover Evoque Landmark: prices, specs
What you get for your £39,000 is a 178bhp Evoque TD4 diesel with a six-speed manual gearbox, while another £1840 on top will mean your Landmark is equipped with a nine-speed automatic.
Along with this rather lurid Moraine Blue – ‘inspired by the turquoise lakes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains’, don’t you know – there’s also Yulong White or Corris Grey.
Other exterior tweaks to the Landmark special edition include a sporty body kit, fixed panoramic glass roof, 19-inch alloys and lots of grey detailing.
Open the doors and you’re greeted to black perforated leather seats with contrasting stitching and brushed satin on the centre console (above).
Standard kit includes keyless entry and a gesture-operated, waggle-foot-to-open tailgate, while Land Rover’s 10-inch InControl Touch Pro system is optional.
This isn’t LR’s first Landmark car either; the edition name was wheeled out for the Discovery 4 to celebrate/mourn the passing of the boxy ladder-framed off-roading waftmobile in 2015.
The Landmark is available to order now, and is priced at £39,000 for the manual and £40,840 for the automatic.
