2019 Range Rover Evoque
I was never a big fan of the original Range Rover Evoque. It basically felt like a big Ford Focus and was too basic and I just didn’t like it. It wasn’t as bad as the Freelander and I can’t even drive the Defender’s (too big, legs are too long) but I do love the big Ranger Rovers, especially the new Discovery (the big one) the Sport and Autobiography/Vogue models. The SVR’s are awesome!
So the new Range Rover Evoque is about to come out and it’s awesome. From the front it looks like a Velar and from the side it looks like a Sport. Inside it has the same digital centre displays as the Velar but has the feel of the big Discovery came out a couple years ago.
Really cool tech that I saw was the rear view mirror. In one setting it’s a traditional mirror but with the flick of a switch it turns into a digital display, very cool. There’s also the clear view technology that allows one to see exactly where the front wheels are tracking. When looking through the centre console display, cameras under the car give the effect of the bonnet disappearing so in theory you’ll be able to stay on track, navigate through small passageways and (most importantly for me) not scuff your wheels.
So here are some photos. I must get round to doing something more arty with my car photos in the future (discussing shooting cars with drones with some people) but right now I simply don’t have the time.
Incidentally I’ve also just ordered myself a new car. I’ve finally given in and bought a Jaguar XF. I’ve been driving a Volkswagen mk7 Golf R for the last several years and while I love it it drinks petrol and I’m at a stage where I want something a big softer/more practical etc. Will share photos when I get it!
Other things coming up, I’ve photographed a couple weddings which I’ll share soon. I’ve also photographed a load more properties which I’ll share and I’m working on a new business called BNBMedia which will be entirely dedicated to media (photos, videos, drones etc) for properties. I’m also trying to get my web design business launched but have tonnes of work to do for that also. 2019 is going to be a busy year!
