RANGE ROVER EVOQUE RECEIVES HOST OF UPDATES FOR 2016
Land Rover has strengthened its fastest-selling model, the Range Rover Evoque. The luxury compact SUV features a comprehensive range of new design feature technologies to reinforce its status as the market leader.
Range Rover Evoque’s cutting-edge exterior design has been further enhanced with a selection of carefully chosen revisions. These updates include a new front bumper, and two new grille designs. The updated Evoque will also be the first Land Rover to feature all-LED headlamps, this advanced technology, which provides superior visibility at night, both enhances safety and creates a more striking visual statement. Additionally three all-new alloy wheel designs will be on offer in two finishes and an extended palette of exterior colours makes Evoque customer’s bespoke specification options almost endless.
Interior changes include new seats and door casings, a new infotainment system, accessed via an eight-inch touchscreen, providing a more intuitive experience, and the introduction of new colour and materials such as Lunar Ice, Vintage Tan and Dark Cherry, which is exclusive to Autobiography, all of which complement Evoque’s bold architectural forms. Customers can also configure their interior lighting and have the option to add unique-in-class front massage seats.
Also debuting is Land Rover’s advanced new diesel engine, manufactured in the West Midlands in the UK. The new EU6-compliant four-cylinder Ingenium unit brings a class-leading combination of performance, refinement and efficiency. The cutting-edge engine, which is designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK, provides up to 180PS, fuel economy of up to 68mpg (4.2l/100km) and CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km*. That makes the class-leading Evoque the most efficient Land Rover ever produced, saving customers up to €5,000†, over three years, in some markets.
An innovative hands-free tailgate function completes the line up of updates and also adds a new dimension to the convenience of Evoque ownership. It allows owners to automatically open and close the tailgate by waving a foot beneath the rear bumper, whilst not compromising security. The handy feature is even compatible with a tow bar and greatly improves access to the luggage space when returning to the vehicle with your arms full of shopping.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer said: “The Range Rover Evoque first established and then dominated the luxury compact SUV sector generating worldwide acclaim and sales success. Our challenge has been to evolve the Evoque design without diluting its distinctive character.”
Evoque has been the subject of much critical acclaim and won more than 165 international awards since launch. The hugely successful model will also be the most efficient car in its class when deliveries begin in August 2015, in over 170 markets worldwide.
