2020 EVOQUE CHEAP HACK TOP OF RANGE LOOKS
Added: 21st of November 2020
When it comes to buying a car there’s always a flagship spec in each model that looks special. Usually with a much more powerful engine, bigger alloys, unique styling features and overall a more expensive look, distinguishing itself from the cheaper “inferior” models. If you want a car that looks like the top of the range model that, to the majority of people, would be indistinguishable to the real thing, then read on. The majority of JLR models come in a range of trims but the only one you need to know about is the R-dynamic. In this thread we are focusing on the evoque so the base model was a D150 2WD Manual (there’s an updated model coming in 2021 which will have a D165 2WD Manual as the base model, but no facelift or any visual changes) the base model from the exterior is very bland, lots of black plastic on the bumpers, small alloys, no tinted windows and not very sporty and starts at £32100. The top of the range autobiography starts at £52110 and comes fully loaded with an exterior body styling kit complete with bonnet vents, sporty front bumper with fender strakes, sporty rear bumper with, albeit fake, dual exhausts, side skirts and 21” alloys. There’s a difference of £20k between these 2 models but, for an extra £1500 you can upgrade the base model to an r-dynamic and have the same exterior looks as the autobiography less the alloys. The only visible difference would be the DTR lights, the autobiography’s are a little more unique but only saddos like me would notice! You can get the 20” black gloss alloys style 5079 brand new with tyres online for £1000, landrover want £2350 for the exact same ones! Get the black styling pack and tinted windows for a total of £1090 and you have a near on identical car to one costing £16410 more! This can be done with the majority of JLR models, if you care more about exterior looks than ridiculously priced interior extras that will hardly be used then this is the way to do it! Obviously if you don’t request the car to be de badged when ordering then everyone will see it’s only a 2l diesel!
