The 2016 Evoque gets new available tech features and a modestly updated front fascia.Land Rover has unveiled the updated 2016 Range Rover Evoque at the Geneva Motor Show.Visually, the 2016 Evoque stands out from the outgoing model thanks to a redesigned front bumper with larger air dams, available adaptive full-LED headlights, a restyled rear spoiler and three new alloy wheel designs. Buyers can choose from two radiator grilles, an elegant-looking model with two horizontal slats and a more muscular-looking unit with mesh inserts.
The interior has been upgraded with more comfortable seats, new door panels, a redesigned instrument cluster and an eight-inch color touch screen that runs Land Rover's InControl Touch infotainment system. High-spec models can be ordered with new-for-2016 front massage seats at an extra cost.
Land Rover has not made any major mechanical changes to the U.S.-spec Evoque, meaning that the crossover carries on with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 240 horsepower. Buyers in Europe have access to an all-new Ingenium TD4 turbodiesel engine that is available with either 150 or 180 ponies.
The Evoque gains the Range Rover's All-Terrain Progress Control function that maintains a pre-determined speed in rough off-road situations. Additionally, the crossover can be ordered with Lane-Keeping Assist, Driver Drowsing Monitor and Autonomous Emergency Braking.
In a bid to make buyers' life a little easier, Land Rover has pared down the 2016 Evoque lineup to four trim levels called SE, HSE, HSE Dynamic and Autobiography, respectively. Pricing information will be published next fall when the 2016 Evoque lands in showrooms.
