The new Range Rover Evoque comes with the lat­est advanced dri­ver assis­tance fea­tures.

They include emer­gency brak­ing, lane keep assist, front and rear park­ing aids, and a rear cam­era as the stan­dard to help avoid road traf­fic acci­dents.

It has com­pre­hen­sive airbags.

The airbags will pro­tect those inside and out­side the vehi­cle.

Own­ers can add option­al fea­tures.

The park pack includes park assist, 360-degree park­ing aid, rear traf­fic mon­i­tor and exit mon­i­tor, while the dri­ve pack offers adap­tive cruise con­trol.

Options also include Blind spot assist and high-speed emer­gency brak­ing, for con­ve­nience and safe­ty wher­ev­er the road takes you.

Jaguar Land Rover Glob­al Prod­uct Mar­ket­ing Direc­tor, Fin­bar McFall guar­an­tees Range Rover Evoque is safe.

The new Range Rover Evoque suite of advanced tech­nolo­gies includes Land Rover’s Clear­Sight Rear-View Mir­ror.

A high Def­i­n­i­tion video screen at the flick of a switch offers a wider 50-degree field.

It shows supe­ri­or low light vis­i­bil­i­ty when dis­play­ing a rear-fac­ing cam­era feed from the top of the car.

This is ide­al when car­ry­ing pas­sen­gers in the sec­ond row or bulky items in the rear load space obscure the view.

Clear­Sight ground view tech­nol­o­gy is also avail­able.

It makes the bon­net invis­i­ble by pro­ject­ing cam­era imagery onto the upper touch­screen to show the dri­ver a 180-degree view under the front of the vehi­cle.

This is use­ful when nego­ti­at­ing dif­fi­cult park­ing spaces, nav­i­gat­ing high city cen­tre kerbs or tack­ling rough ter­rain.

The new Evoque will be avail­able in May 2019 to order priced from R734 300 in South Africa. Con­sumers can spec­i­fy their own vehi­cle at
