Article by Christian Andrei, on April 17, 2015

Land Rover’s 2016 Range Rover Evoque that will arrive this September will be offered with a range of new technologies and design features that enhance the owner’s experience as well as boost efficiency and cut the running costs. Land Rover considers the Range Rover Evoque to be its fastest-selling model. For the 2016 model year, customers can opt for the EU6-compliant four-cylinder Ingenium engine that produces up to 68mpg for the eD4 2WD.

This advanced diesel engine was designed, engineered, and built in the UK. It leads in its class in terms of efficiency, refinement, and performance. Customers also get the chance to customize their Evoque with a wider range of both standard and optional equipment. Starting this September, the Range Rover Evoque will be available in these variants: SE, SE Tech, HSE Dynamic, HSE Dynamic Lux and Autobiography.

The exterior received several modifications including two new grille designs, new front bumper, all-LED headlamps (offered as an option), three new alloy wheel designs, and a tailgate spoiler. It features a new seat design with an updated interior scheme that’s more luxurious and is available in various new colours and materials. The model also comes with InControlTM Touch, the automaker’s new infotainment system.

The user gets an enhanced experience via an eight-inch touchscreen, with a variety of new applications and driver aids available. For the first time, a Land Rover model is equipped with a new Gesture Control feature. It allows the user to effortlessly access the boot space by opening the tailgate hands-free.

In the UK, the Range Rover Evoque is priced from £30,200 on the road to include the following new features as standard: Lane Departure Warning, rain sensing wipers, heated eight way adjustable front seats, powerfold door mirrors, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), automatic headlamps, and automatic climate control on top of the 2015 model year specifications.

The Range Rover Evoque is the most efficient production Land Rover ever built due to its top-of-the-class new aluminium Ingenium diesel engine. The new TD4 engine is lighter than its predecessor by 20-30kg.

It comes with stiff cylinder blocks and decoupled injectors to guarantee low levels of vibration and noise intrusion and is offered in two power outputs. The 150PS (eD4 2WD) comes with a fuel economy of up to 68mpg and CO2 emissions of 109g/km (class-leading).

Meanwhile, the powerful 180PS unit provides 59mpg and CO2 emissions from 125g/km. The 150PS unit is more efficient than Evoque’s previous diesel engines by 18%. The Ingenium engines are available with a range of advanced features to guarantee excellent environmental performance, which includes variable valve timing and a series of low friction technologies.

NOx emissions are significantly reduced due to its selective catalytic reduction and a new low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation system. Running costs are lower because the service intervals for the TD4 engine have been extended from 16,000 miles to 21,000 miles.

Land Rover’s existing sophisticated 240PS Si4 petrol engine is also available on the 2016 Model Year Evoque. Si4 derivatives offer a powerful performance, capable of accelerating from zero to 100km/h (0-62mph) in only 7.6 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 217km/h (135mph) and boasts a fuel economy of 36mpg (7.8 l/100km) and have CO2emissions of 181g/km.
