2016 Range Rover Evoque launched at Rs. 47.1 lakhs
Land Rover has just updated one of its most popular products in the Indian subcontinent, Range Rover Evoque. Replacing the model that was launched in India in 2011, the 2016 Range Rover Evoque is priced at Rs. 47.10 lakhs (ex-showroom, Mumbai). The facelift is not much different from its predecessor except for a few changes here and there.
Overall, the new model looks more or less like the outgoing one. However, the front features adaptive LED headlights and newly-designed grille along with a tweaked front bumper that features larger air dams. The side profile is fairly unchanged but for a new set of optional alloy wheels. Changes to the rear profile come in form of a new rear spoiler and redesigned LED taillights. To sum up, the Evoque is now an even better SUV to look at.
Interior changes on the 2016 Range Rover Evoque includes soft touch materials, new door pads, new seats and loads of colour options. The SE variant is equipped with leather upholstery and 8-way adjustable seats. The higher HSE trim on the other hand has 14-way adjustable seats along with massage function.
Though Land Rover retails the 2016 Range Rover Evoque with a completely new 2.0-litre diesel engine, the Indian model continues to be driven by the outgoing 2.2-litre diesel mill that produces 190 PS of power and 420 Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Other features include a panoramic sunroof, All-Terrain Response Control, Driver Fatigue Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking. All these features are available as standard on all four models.
The Tata Motors owned British company has retailed more than 40,000 units of the Range Rover Evoque in international markets till date. The new model is expected to add on to this number and keep the model fresh till the next generation model is launched. Prices of the SUV have dropped by a good amount as the company has started assembling the vehicle in India. Offered with 3 year/100,000 km warranty, Land Rover has already received 125 bookings for the 2016 Evoque in our country.
Prices (ex-showroom, Mumbai) of all variants are as follows:
Pure – Rs. 47.1 lakhs
SE – Rs. 52.9 lakhs
HSE – Rs. 57.7 lakhs
HSE Dynamic – Rs. 63.2 lakhs
