There once was a time when three-door sport-utes were commonplace, but they gradually gave way to the versatility of the five-door body style. The trio-portal is making a comeback these days in the luxury crossover market, thanks to the likes of the new Range Rover Evoque and upcoming Porsche Cajun. And while the three-door versions of both are scheduled to arrive on the scene first, both are being followed by five-door versions. Land Rover has just pulled the sheet on its five-door Evoque, which will make its official debut at theLos Angeles Auto Show.

The specs are largely the same as the three-door Evoque that bowed at this year’s Paris Motor Show, but with a couple extra doors thrown into the mix to enable easier access to the rear seats. Nothing too complicated there, but it could make all the difference for many consumers looking to keep the sleek profile but not willing to forgo the bodystyle.

There’s a wealth of details in the press release after the jump and a fresh batch of high-resolution images in the gallery below. If you want to know what a baby Range Rover looks like with the extra openings, check ‘em out.
