New Range Rover Evoque Achieves Five-Star Euro NCAP Safety Rating
Maximum rating secures the Evoque's position as one of the most capable and safe luxury compact SUVs available.
The new Range Rover Evoque has achieved the maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, achieving 94% adult occupant safety and 87% child occupant safety. The new five-star rating of the new Evoque is a further addition to the previous five-star ratings awarded to the Range Rover Velar and Land Rover Discovery SUV. The 94% score for adult occupant safety is the highest percentage to come from any Jaguar or Land Rover model thus far. These scores are as a result of Land Rover's new Premium Transverse Architecture which ensures maximum occupant safety.
The new Range Rover Evoque includes a number of safety features as standard in order to help reduce road traffic accidents. Some of these features include; Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Front and Rear Parking Aids, along with a Rear Camera.
Further safety features are also available as optional extras. The ‘Park Pack’ offers drivers parking assistance features including; Park Assist, 360-degree Parking Aid and Rear Traffic Monitor/Clear Exit Monitor. The ‘Drive Pack’ offers Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Assist and High-Speed Emergency Braking, providing additional safety and convenience on the road.
The new Range Rover Evoque has been engineered to provide an exceptional level of safety on all road types. The airbag system and in-cabin restraints provide further reassurance for occupants as well as those outside the vehicle – due to the pedestrian airbag – demonstrating that safety is a key element throughout the luxury compact SUV.
“The Range Rover Evoque is at home in the city and the country, so we added the latest technologies aimed at preventing accidents and a new vehicle architecture to protect occupants in the event of an incident. The result is another five-star performer from Land Rover.”
Global Product Marketing Director, Jaguar Land Rover
ClearSight Rear View Mirror is an example of the level of exceptional technology included. The cutting-edge technology means drivers can transform the rear view mirror into a HD video screen, offering a wider 50-degree field of vision, as well as significantly improved vision in low light conditions. This is implemented by adding a rear-facing camera which runs a live feed from the top of the car. This feature also aids drivers when visibility is impaired due to large items in the load space or passengers in the rear seats.
Similarly, ClearSight Ground View technology can be added, offering a 180-degree view under the front of the vehicle. The feed is shown on the upper touchscreen, making difficult parking spaces, high kerbs or rough terrain easier to navigate.
With such stringent standards to meet du, achieving the maximum five-star Euro NCAP Safety Rating is an outstanding achievement for Jaguar Land Rover. Following their highest scores to date, the Evoque is an exceptional addition to the already extensive list of five-star rated SUV’s at Jaguar Land Rover.
