The Range Rover Autobiography Dynamic is set to be the most powerful version in the Evoque range, with a 281bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine.

As well as the 44bhp boost over the standard Evoque, the new edition also gets the new nine-speed automatic gearbox plus revised chassis. The transmission has also been recalibrated to make it respond more sharply than other Evoques.

Range Rover's active driveline four-wheel drive system is standard on the Autobiography Dynamic. The system engages the four-wheel drive system automatically and seamlessly when required.

To further boost the handling, the Autobiography Dynamic comes with upgraded 350mm brakes and Torque Vectoring Braking as standard to help reduce understeer.

The Autobiography Dynamic gets a series of visual upgrades to set it apart from the rest of the Evoque range, including a restyled grille and front valance, 20-inch alloy wheels and Autobiography badging on the tailgate and front wings.

Inside, it gets leather upholstery, a choice of six colours and Autobiography logos on the headrests and sills.

Performance figures have not yet been released for the upgraded Autobiography Dynamic, but it is expected to reach 0-62mph in comfortably less than 7.0 seconds.

The Autobiography Dynamic will be offered in both Coupe and five-door bodystyles, with prices expected to start at just over £50,000. The car made its debut at the Geneva motor show with the first deliveries scheduled for the autumn.
