The Range Rover Evoque has already made its mark in the retail market, but now the manufacturer is hoping for corporate success with the eD4 2.2-litre two-wheel drive diesel variant.

Like the 2WD Freelander ED4 that went on sale last year, Land Rover hopes the Evoque ED4 will make its way on to user-chooser lists with companies that might have four-wheel drive restrictions in place.

The 2.2-litre diesel engine is coupled with a six-speed manual transmission, giving a maximum speed of 112mph and 0-60mph in 10.6 seconds.

Fuel consumption figures from Land Rover suggest 47.1mpg in an urban environment, 62.8mpg in extra urban and 56.5mpg on the combined. We will see how that measures up in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, a 75kg weight reduction drops CO2 emissions down from 144g/km on the four-wheel drive version to 133g/km on the five-door. That equates to a 21% benefit-in-kind tax band for 2012/13.

The Evoque has an all-turbocharged engine line-up with a choice of state-of-the-art petrol and diesel power units. These advanced engines are hushed and relaxed when cruising at speed, but are tuned to deliver an enjoyable, sporty note during more spirited driving.

Diesel Evoque models are available in 190PS (SD4), 150PS (TD4) and our high-economy 150PS eD4 derivative, with a P11D price of £28,520.

In the interior, at the heart of the control system is an 8-inch, high-definition touch-screen display with crisp graphics and simple, intuitive menu.

The display is available with dual-view technology, so that driver and passenger can view completely independent content.

The package also includes Bluetooth hands-free mobile phone use and audio streaming, plus a range of USB and auxiliary inputs for iPods and other portable devices.
