The standard issue Range Rover Evoque Autobiography sits on 20-inch alloy wheels and features a few exterior enhancements, such as a revised bodykit and new grille. On the inside there’s wonderfully supple Scottish leather everywhere, available in your choice of six different hues. The Evoque Autobiography features either a 177kW 2-litre turbocharged petrol or 140kW turbo-diesel motor under the hood powering all four wheels via a 9-speed ZF automatic transmission.

The Dynamic version of the Range Rover Evoque Autobiography is the first of its type to receive the more powerful version of the 2-litre turbo petrol with 210kW of power and 400Nm of torque at its disposal. Power goes to all four wheels via a fast-acting version of the 9-speed ZF auto.

Both the Evoque Autobiography and Autobiography Dynamic are available in an exclusive eye-catching (and, probably, fast depreciating) shade of orange, dubbed phoenix orange.

The Geneva Auto Show will also see the debut of Land Rover/Range Rover’s InControl application suite. Owners download the InControl smartphone apps onto their Android device or iPhone, which can then be displayed and controlled via their car’s touchscreen entertainment and nav interface.
