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 to reinforce its status as the market leader. The 2016 model year Range Rover Evoque is making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show this week.
The 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, two new grille designs, all-LED headlamps, and three new alloy wheel designs. These changes will enhance Evoque’s unique design to a broad range of customers.
Interior changes include new seats and door casings, new infotainment system, accessed via an eight-inch touchscreen, and the introduction of new colour and materials such as lunar ice, vintage tan and dark cherry, complementing Evoque’s bold architectural forms.
Land Rover’s advanced new diesel engine also debuts. 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. In fact the 2016 model year Evoque is now 18 per cent more efficient than the top-selling original model.
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.”
The new Evoque will be available in five trim levels and 15 option packs allow customers even greater personalisation.
