2015 Evoque Updates: Land Rover’s Most Efficient Car

2015 Evoque Update: Land Rover’s Most Efficient Car

After a series of new updates the Range Rover Evoque is now officially Land Rover’s most efficient car. A combination of interior and exterior aesthetic tweaks has been matched with new engine options and even a new safety kit.

Set to make its debut at the Geneva Motor show next week the new Evoque is pretty much certain to maintain the success it has seen since its first production back in 2011.

The new model sees its biggest change in the introduction of a new 2.0 Litre Ingenium diesel engine with CO2 emissions lower than 109g/km. Petrol fans are also able to choose the Si 4.2litre turbo and the new range will have a choice of a 6 speed manual or a 9 speed automatic transmission. In consideration of this much lighter engine, engineers have retuned the suspension in order to improve the handling capabilities of the Evoque.

The updated safety kit includes autonomous emergency braking, lane keeping assistance, driver fatigue warning and All-Terrain progress control. This maximises the Evoque’s appeal to the family market as well as for those travelling long distances regularly.

Aesthetically the exterior of new model boasts a choice of grilles, the regular or the new mesh version paired with a freshly contoured front bumper. As well as this, 6 new alloy designs have been added for customers to choose from raising the number of options to 12! There is also a new spoiler with an integrated brake light at the rear.

Internally changes have also been made to both the design and the technology within the car. Design-wise there are new material and colour choices for the interior of the Evoque. The technology has also seen a major overhaul, the app-based InControl Infotainment system has been introduced with Meridian speakers and sound system.

Prices for the new Evoque have yet to be confirmed but a spokesperson has announced that they will be comparable with the current model. Deliveries are set to being in August this year and the announcement of the new Evoque is expected to be closely followed by the launch of the Convertible Evoque later on in 2015-early 2016.
