2016 Range Rover Evoque facelift debuts with a new look and technologies

Land Rover has updated its fastest-selling model, the Range Rover Evoque for the 2016 model year.

The luxury compact SUV gets both new design features and technologies.

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

Moving on to the interior there are 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.

The Evoque also gets a new EU6-compliant four-cylinder Ingenium diesel, delivering fuel economy of up to 68mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km.

The all-aluminium Ingenium TD4 engine is up to 30kg lighter than its predecessor and will be available in two power outputs: 150hp offering fuel economy of up to 68mpg and 180hp unit offering up to 59mpg with CO2 emissions from 125g/km.

The fuel savings at least on paper are very impressive as the 150hp unit is 18% more fuel efficient than previous diesel engines.

The 2016 model year Evoque is also offered with 240hp Si4 petrol engine, taking the compact SUV from 0-62mph in just 7.6 seconds on to a top speed of 135mph, and returning fuel economy of 36mpg and CO2emissions of 181g/km.

The 2016 model year Range Rover Evoque will be the first Land Rover vehicle to be designated as an ‘E-Capability’ variant, with a blue ‘Evoque’ badge, applied to the eD4 109g/km (coupe) and 113g/km (five-door) front-wheel drive models, as well as the 125g/km all-wheel drive derivative, highlighting the status of Land Rover’s most efficient vehicles.

The 2016 Range Rover Evoque also gains a lane keeping assist system featuring a stereo digital camera to detect unintended lane changes with system, that will automatically apply the steering to keep the car in lane.

Autonomous emergency braking system is there to diminish the severity of an impact by automatically applying the brake in case of an imminent collision. Other updates include attention assist estimation system, detecting whether the driver is at risk of falling asleep behind the wheel.
