Range Rover confirms five-door Evoque

Land Rover will be producing a five-door version of the Range Rover Evoque, Phil Popham, the companys managing director, confirmed today at the Paris Motor Show.

The official announcement comes less than a week after photographs of the car taken at a dealer conference were leaked on a Romanian website.

However, there was no sign of the larger car in France today; instead, the company was concentrating on the launch of the three-door model. We dont expect to see the five-door model until the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.

The five-door Evoque is slightly taller than the three-door, giving passengers extra headroom in the back. Theres a decent-sized boot, too.

Despite the separate launches, both the three- and the five-door versions are tipped to go on sale at the same time next summer with prices of the five-door expected to start at around 32,000.
