Opening up a new marketDriven Range Rover Evoque ED4 2.2 2WD - on sale nowBy Tom SeymourThe runaway success story of the Evoque continues with the launch of a two-wheel drive model which could unlock the door to the corporate market for Range Rover.A 75kg weight reduction on the Evoque ED4 drops CO2 emissions down from 144g/km on the four-wheel drive version to 133g/km and improves fuel efficiency from 49.6mpg up to 56.5mpg.Like the 2WD Freelander ED4 - on sale since last year - it's hoped the Evoque ED4 will make its way on to user chooser lists with companies that have 4x4 restrictions in place.Land Rover believes there are 472 companies that represent a market of 60,000 fleet vehicles that have 4x4 exclusions in place.It will be interesting to see how well sales do pick up as the number of Evoque buyers that will use or need 4WD capabilities is arguably minimal. There's a £750 price difference between the 4WD and its 2WD equivalent so customers could save cash, get improved fuel economy and the benefit of lower taxation.If an Evoque customer happens to fancy some off-roading in their 2WD model, they will be pleased to know it can perform pretty well when faced with some challenging terrain. It powered up some pretty steep inclines and waded through water with ease.Cosmetically, the 2WD and 4WD are identical; the only hint of change is the rear badging and the lack of Terrain Response system.The ED4 is still chunky and feels solid on the road, but that weight reduction is noticeable with slightly lighter steering.Interior quality on the Pure trim tested is high and the seats are supportive and extremely comfortable. The 2.2-litre diesel still offers the same 148bhp power output, but torque is reduced slightly from 400lb/ft to 380 lb/ft.There's still plenty of power and the ED4 will swiftly accelerate up to 62mph in 10.6 seconds, only very slightly slower than the 4WD's 10.3.Ride quality was thoroughly tested at Land Rover's Gaydon proving track and suspension is quite firm when rocking over the type of bumps that crop up across Britain's roads. Handling is tight and the ED4 is smooth, quiet when cruising and still lively enough to be enjoyable when driven quickly.SpecificationPrice £27,955Engine 2.2-litre dieselPerformance 0-62mph 10.6secs, top speed 112mphTransmission 6-sp manualEfficiency 56.5mpg; 133g/km CO2RV (3yr/30k) TBCRivals Audi A3 sportsback, Volvo XC60, BMW 320d SE
