People who have allergies know that they can be very uncomfortable. One surprising place to find some relief is in the 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. This subcompact luxury SUV now has an available air filtration system to help purify the cabin’s air. Here’s a look at what the system does plus the other benefits of the 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque.
The 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque’s cabin air filtration system
Although the second generation just arrived last year, the 2021 model year is already being updated. Those updates include an available advanced cabin air filtration system. It is designed to remove allergens and fine particulates that are as small as 2.5 microns. This system should be a huge bonus for anyone who suffers from allergies. It’s able to turn on automatically, when in Purify mode, if it senses allergens above a certain level. The touchscreen enables the driver to check on the interior and exterior air qualities. A color scale on the touchscreen visually compares the interior and exterior air qualities.
The new system is also able to remove particulates that are often found in the air in polluted cities, according to ThisIsMoney.co.uk. It should even be able to remove strong smells from the air with its active carbon filter. In addition, the system recirculates and purifies the air already in the cabin, and it ends up cleaner than the outside air.
The new system goes along with the cabin air ionization technology, which was already available. This system condenses moisture in the cabin air to convert it into electrically charged particles that react with air contaminants and remove smells, allergens, and bacteria from the air.
Other technology that’s available
The 2021 Range Rover Evoque includes different technology this time. There is more tech in general, but it will no longer offer the mild-hybrid powertrain option. The new model year Range Rover Evoque includes Jaguar Land Rover’s new Pivi Pro touchscreen infotainment system. This quicker system will be an improvement on the slower one previously used, according to MotorTrend. The Pivi Pro system will offer better connectivity for services like Spotify, wireless charging with a signal-boosting option, and the ability to connect two phones with Bluetooth at the same time.
The infotainment system has a 10-inch screen. It comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility as well as navigation. A Wi-Fi hotspot, a head-up display, and a premium audio system are all optional.
The new electrical architecture, which appeared in the 2020 model, supports the Pivi Pro infotainment system as well as two Qualcomm LTE data modems. One of those modems is dedicated to over-the-air software updates, while the other handles streaming music and apps. The systems run on Snapdragon processors and a QNX operating system.
The Evoque will now come standard with a 3D surround-view camera. It also comes standard with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection as well as a lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist. Rear collision monitoring and adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving mode are available.
What the 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque gives you
The 2021 Range Rover Evoque is available in five different trim levels. The starting prices range from $44,350 to $54,450. Without the mild-hybrid powertrain, there’s just one option. The standard engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter Ingenium four-cylinder engine, which generates 246 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic transmission are standard.
The 2021 Range Rover Evoque has new exterior colors, including Portofino Blue and Lantau Bronze. It also has new 18-inch gloss black wheels with a split five-spoke design. The 21-inch wheels are still available though.
On the interior, the 2021 Range Rover Evoque, according to MotorTrend, has “a three-spoke steering wheel with capacitive-touch switches, USB-C ports, an optional wireless charging pad, standard satin chrome seat switches, and available satin chrome paddle shifters.” Car and Driver calls the 2021 Evoque’s interior “one of the most attractive designs in the business.” However, the rear seats are a bit snug.
The 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has plenty to offer buyers. Its cabin air filtration system brings comfort and cleaner air to drivers and passengers. The Range Rover Evoque includes plenty of other technology options to provide speed and connectivity and maybe impress your passengers.
