Adding to the long list of accolades piled upon the 2012 Range Rover Evoque, Fred Lavery Company is proud to announce that Automobile Magazine recently gave it a 2012 All-Star Award. The magazine annually recognizes ten vehicles that represent the best-of-the-best in the automotive industry for the model year. In each category, the magazine aims to pick the car that stands out from the crowd - which, they acknowledge is becoming an increasingly difficult task.
Automobile Magazine applauds the iconic value of the Land Rover from its first inception. For years, the company has been able to create vehicles that fit a thriving niche market. And their latest iteration isn't any less unique or rugged. According to the magazine, "The Evoque is first and foremost a design triumph...it telegraphs the new truck's off-road chops while carrying a heavy load of aspirational snob appeal."1
What of those high-end off-road chops, anyway? Well, the 2.0L Turbocharged, four-cylinder engine pumps out 240 hp and 251 lb.-ft. of torque, while still boasting an impressive 28-mpg. It's the ultimate in luxury, of course, while maintaining the high-standards for performance that Land Rover has become famous for. That's right, even in a luxury SUV, you can wade through 20 inches of water, operate at tilt angles of up to 45-degrees and drive through sand, mud, ruts, grass, gravel and snow with the Land Rover Terrain System.
Andy Goss, company President, says, "We're excited to have the 2012 Range Rover Evoque be named an All-Star...to receive the Automobile Magazine honor and other recent SUV of the Year accolades demonstrates that the world is in fact ready for a smaller, more fuel-efficient, luxury SUV."2
Automobile Magazine claims to be the best at knowing when a new car on the market will become an icon. And, here at Fred Lavery Company, we happen to agree with them when they say that the Evoque is destined to become a member of the iconic cars of history. That said, we invite you to come and visit our showroom at 34602 Woodward Avenue Birmingham, MI 48009 to get a taste for the Range Rover Evoque and its "Power of Presence"3 for yourself.
