2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque will be available in the following trims: SE, HSE, HSE Dynamic, and Autobiography. A convertible Evoque is also being worked on.
Exterior-wise, the vehicle has undergone some pretty big changes. It has received a new front bumper installed with a pair of larger, aggressive air intakes; slim, integrated LED fog lights followed by two freshly designed grilles.
The base model of 2016 Range Rover Evoque has two horizontal bars and a fine mesh pattern, whereas the Dynamic model gets a hexagonal pattern. As for the turn indicators, they now completely belong to the LED running lamps. Speaking of the LED, the Evoque now comes with full-LED adaptive headlamps.
5-door HSE Dynamic and Autobiography have received the hood vents that could previously be only found in the 3-door models.
There is also a new tailgate spoiler with a wider LED third brake light and the hatch with “Gesture Tailgate”. Finally, the customers can choose from among three new wheel designs in two finishes.
2016 Range Rover Evoque Interior
As for the Evoque 2016 interior, it includes new seats, doorsills and premium soft-touch materials. Standard models come with 8-way power-adjustable seats, while the Dynamic and Autobiography go all the way up to 14-way seats with optional massagers.
Apart from the 11 existing colors, the vehicle will also be available in two new optional ones – Lunar Ice and Vintage Tan.
The greatest innovation of all is the arrival of Land Rover’s InControl Touch infotainment system. The system features user-friendly menus, allows its users to swipe between screens just like on smartphones and lets them access several phone-based apps by using the center-console touch screen via InControl Apps functionality.
InControl Touch Plus includes (standard on HSE and above) bundling nav, rear-seat entertainment with a pair of 8” screens and wireless headphones, and an 11- or 17-speaker stereo.
