Range Rover Evoque teased

If you're getting a sense of déjà vu, you are not the only one.

The original Range Rover Evoque debuted back in 2010 and became an immediate hit.

The sculptures, created in-house by Jaguar Land Rover's design team, mimic the basic outline of the second-generation Evoque, and show that characteristic traits of the model, such as the coupe-esque sloping roofline, will carry over into the second gen.

Ahead of a full launch later this month, Land Rover has begun teasing the brand-new Evoque in the form of full-sized wire structures dotted around London in the UK.

The front end retains its slim headlight and grille design, but the lower airdam is significantly larger - something no doubt inspired by all of today's "two-tier" designs - while the tail end sees a taillight structure extending across the rear end, reminding us of the Velar.

While technical specifications are still shrouded in mystery, rumors say the 2020 Evoque will ride on an updated platform of the current model rather than switching to all-new hardware.

Expect power to come from a selection of turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, which could also be joined by a plug-in hybrid.

Order books for the new luxury compact SUV, which has been designed, engineered and will be manufactured in Britain, are due to open at the same time as the world debut in London.
