Land Rover Refines Look Of 2016 Range Rover Evoque, Adds New Ingenium Diesel

Land Rover has released the info on the facelifted 2016 Range Rover Evoque line, with subtle modifications to one of the company’s most popular vehicles.

The details on the revised Evoque were spilled before its Geneva Motor Show debut next week. Exterior changes are fairly modest, but are highlighted by full LED lighting, new grilles and front bumper. Autobiography and the new HSE Dynamic trim levels of the five-door get the hood vents that used to be specific to the Evoque Coupe. Still no official word on that long-rumored drop-top Evoque, though.

Inside, Land Rover updated the Evoque’s interior with a new 8-inch touchscreen with swipe function. Seats and door trims have also been updated with new colors and upholsteries. A Gesture Tailgate is Land Rover’s name for the new function for the power liftgate that lets you wave your foot under the bumper to open the back. Lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking and a drowsy driver monitor are also new.

The Evoque sticks with the 2.0-liter turbo four with 240 horsepower and the 9-speed automatic that was introduced a couple years ago. Expect JLR’s new Ingenium four-cylinder gas engine to make its way into the Evoque soon, as the Ingenium TD4 replaces the old turbodiesel for 2016. That new 2.0-liter engine comes with either 150 or 180 horsepower and up to 68 mpg, according to Land Rover. New eD4 efficiency models will offer C02 figures as low as 109 g/km with front-wheel drive, or 125 g/km with all-wheel drive.

The 2016 Evoque will start rolling into showrooms in August.
