In addition, there are two new grille designs to choose from one of which has a motorsport-like mesh inserts while the other has a two-horizontal slat.
Having talked about the exterior, this part will offer the details on the interior. The powered eight-way seats are leather upholstery, and a further optional 14-way front seat massaging feature. The multimedia system here is similar to a smartphone’s where app-integration and swiping capabilities are possible. The safety concerns have been adequately addressed evidenced by the availability of emergency-braking system, lane-keeping feature, a drowsy-driver detection system, a warning system in case of head-on collisions, not to mention the airbags.

The passengers seated at the back won’t have to worry about the earphone wires since there are wire-less earphones to keep them entertained whilst enjoying the comfy ride.
Engine, Fuel Economy, Specs
Many times, these three features are intertwined hence the need to write about them here. The new Range Rover Evoque 2016 is going to be powered by a turbo-charged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine capable of producing 240 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. It will be paired with a four-wheel drive system and a 9-speed automatic transmission. When it comes to the fuel economy, it is expected that this new model will be rated between 21 and 28 mpg, while emitting 109 g/km of CO2. A pair of TD4 diesel units will be available only in Europe, delivering 150 PS and 180 PS (about 147.8 hp and 177.4 hp, respectively). Top speed is 135 mph. With the above specifications, the vehicle’s performance will hardly disappoint.
2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque SVR
The SVR variant will be somewhat different, borrowing some features from the Sport model. It will feature a different front end with wider grille, larger wheels, gloss black finishes, while the fog lamps are replaced with larger air inlets. The interior is also going to feature minor changes, including the bolstered sports seats and aluminum accents, among the standard equipment. The engine and transmission will most likely remain the same, although it could be tuned up to deliver more horsepower.
