Ace Indian cricketer and batter Smriti Mandhana brought home a new Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. An image of the cricket player taking delivery of her new prized possession is going viral online.

The British SUV appears in the Silicon Silver shade and is available in the fully laden top variant in India. The Evoque is the smallest Range Rover that one can get in the automaker's line-up and is priced at Rs. 72.09 lakh (ex-showroom). It's offered with petrol and diesel engine options with mild-hybrid technology. However, it is unclear which engine option did Mandhana opt for.



The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque was updated in 2020 and the SUV is offered in the single R-Dynamic SE trim. The styling is more in-line with the previous generation of Range Rover family models. It gets a new grille, sweptback bonnet and distinctive LED DRLs. There are also flush door handles and new alloy wheels as part of the exterior upgrades.

Range Rover Evoque is equipped with features such as Pivi, Apple Carplay and Android Auto. It comes with an intuitive Touchscreen as well. It comes fitted with Meridian Sound System for an immersive sound experience.

Apart from 9-speed automatic transmission, the Range Rover Evoque R‑Dynamic SE sports premium LED headlights with signature DRL, driver memory seats and 48.26 cm (19) alloy wheels. It has a 3D Surround Camera as well.

It has a maximum claimed speed of 213 km/h (mph) and it can touch 0-100 kmph in 8.7 seconds, as claimed the manufacturer. The 1997 CC engine generates a maximum power of 150kw and it will deliver the torque between 1750 and 2500 revs/minute.
