Land Rover has strengthened its fastest-selling model, the Range Rover Evoque. The luxury compact SUV features a comprehensive range of new design features and technologies.

RR_Evoque_3These updates include a new front bumper, two new grille designs, all-LED headlamps and three new alloy wheel designs.

RR_Evoque_7Interior changes include new seats and door casings, new infotainment system, accessed via an eight-inch touchscreen, and the introduction of new colour and materials. The all-new eight-inch InControl Touch infotainment system is fitted as standard equipment on SE Evoque models, featuring easy-to-navigate menus and allowing users to swipe between screens just like a smartphone. It also allows owners to access many popular smartphone apps using the centrally-mounted touchscreen on the central console. Additionally, the six-speaker stereo system can be upgraded to include SD-card based satellite navigation.

RR_Evoque_8InControl Touch Plus, standard on HSE Dynamic and Autobiography, can also be specified, comprising HDD-based navigation, a rear-seat entertainment system complete with a pair of eight-inch video screens and wireless digital headphones, and an 11- or 17-speaker Meridian audio system.

RR_Evoque_5Land Rover’s advanced new diesel engine also debuts. The new EU6-compliant four-cylinder all-aluminium Ingenium TD4 unit is 20-30kg lighter than its predecessor. It is available in two power outputs: 150 PS (eD4 2WD) offering fuel economy of up to 68 mpg (4.2 l/100km) and class-leading CO2 emissions of 109g/km, while the potent 180 PS unit offers 59 mpg (4.8 l/100km) and CO2 emissions from 125g/km. The 150 PS unit is 18% more fuel efficiency versus the Evoque’s previous diesel engines. That makes the Evoque the most efficient Land Rover ever produced.

RR_Evoque_1The 2016 model year Range Rover Evoque’s class-leading capability has been enhanced by the introduction of Land Rover’s innovative All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC), first seen on the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. The stress-reducing technology maintains a pre-determined speed (selected using the cruise control function) in forward or reverse gears between 1.1 mph and 19 mph (1.8 km/h to 30 km/h), allowing the driver to concentrate on negotiating tricky terrain.

RR_Evoque_4The 2016 model year Evoque’s trim levels have been realigned to match those of the Range Rover Sport so customers have the choice of three highly-desirable models: SE, HSE Dynamic and Autobiography.
