More than a major cosmetic makeover, there are small changes that enhance the look of the car. The fascia boasts of a new front bumper with a pair of larger, more aggressive air intakes. With a new fine mesh grille design, the car features slim, integrated LED fog lamps with full-LED adaptive headlamps. The turn indicators are now completely a part of the LED running lamps. The car rides on 20-inch alloy wheels with a new design pattern. There is a new ‘Gesture Tailgate’ and the new tailgate spoiler comes with a wider LED third brake light.
The interior features new seats, premium soft-touch materials and doorsills. The front seats are eight-way power-adjustable with the option of having fourteen-way seats with optional massagers. The standard interior colour options now get two new options - Lunar Ice and Vintage Tan. This enables a prospective buyer to choose from a total of 13 choices.
The vehicle will be powered by an all-aluminum Ingenium TD4 turbodiesel engine that is 20-30 kg lighter than its predecessor. This mill is expected to be offered in two states of tune - 150bhp and 180bhp. There is this new All-Terrain Progress Control that allows the driver to set a low speed so that he can concentrate more on picking through rough and obstacle-strewn terrain.
The new Evoque, globally called the 2016 Range Rover Evoque, was first unveiled in February this year, followed by its launch at the Geneva Motor Show. For the Indian market, the sub Rs 50 lakh car is expected to be made available in three variants - Pure, Dynamic and Prestige. Exact variant-wise prices will be available on the day of the launch this month.
