According to a number of surveys, the Range Rover model has often been accompanied by the word, comfort, style and class. You can identify the manufactures taste in high quality vehicles from the Range rover sport and also the Range rover Vogue. Now come in the Range Rover Evoque, this model of the range rover family tops all other vehicles in the compact premium SUV class.
The 2016 Range Rover Evoque
Five years done the line since this baby was first launched, now is when the manufacturer has decided to update the car. The brand can be accused of being lazy by many people since it has taken this long them to update this model. But that’s far from the truth, and that can only be said by people who don’t have the facts. The Range Rover Evoque is the fastest-selling model ever manufactured by this brand, so one can easily assume that there hasn’t been any reason to change it. After all ‘if it’s not broken, don’t fix it’.
Exterior and Interior
Looking at this car from the outside, one might struggle to see any changes made, in fact Range Rover is referring to it as a ‘model year update for 2016’. Take a closer look and you’ll see a slightly reshaped front as well as rear bumpers. The grille has also been altered. Moreover the car is fitted with fresh headlights. In any case, the Range Evoque hasn’t aged one bit.
When it comes to the Evoque’s interior, it is very much expected that the manufacture will maintain the great cabin feel and elegant décor from its predecessor. Range Rover has added new seats, as well as materials on the dashboard and the doors. This nip and tuck generally strengthens the car’s kerb appeal.
Under the hood is where the Evoque will undergo major changes as most customers having cleaner engines and refinement on top of their wish lists. Luckily JRL has just the tool that could hit both birds with one stone. Land Rover has fitted a new 2.0-liter Ingenium diesel engine same as the one under the hood of the Discovery sport. This engine is offered in two tune states. One is 148bhp and the other is 178bhp while you also have the option of the 236bhp 2.0-liter petrol. The car as expected has four wheel drive available with a nine speed automatic and a six speed manual are the gearbox options. The vehicle goes from 0-62mph in well under 12 seconds and hits a top speed of 113mph.
The updated Evoque is about 18per cent more fuel efficient than its predecessor. The car does around 67.3 miles per gallon and 109 grams per km CO2 emissions, the previous best was 55.6mpg and 133g/km making the 2016 Evoque greener.
Release date and price
The 2016 Evoque is already on sale in the wider market, with the base going for around $32,200.
All in all the Range Rover Evoque is certainly going to give the buyers more luxurious feel and a touch of class as well as offer a cleaner car to the environmental conservatives.
