Range Rover Evoque – Motorshow Focus
Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!
Was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
The facelift of the Range Rover Evoque made its Thai debut at the Thailand International Motor Expo 2015. The car was unveiled for the first time at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and has just gone on sale in India.
The 2015 model receives minor changes on the outside. The front gets LED headlamps and redesigned LED DRLs, which are the most apparent modifications. The bumper has been given larger air intakes with LED fog lamps positioned at the top, and the bonnet gets vents. At the rear, the full-LED treatment is meted out to the tail lights and the tail gate can now be opened by the owner by also waving his leg beneath the bumper.
The cabin is updated with better quality materials, revised MID graphics and a standard 8-inch display for the InControl Touch infotainment system. The seats come with optional massage ability and the ambient lighting feature can be customised to suit different tastes.
The 2015 Evoque in the UK market is fitted with a 2.0-litre inline-four Ingenium diesel engine which comes in two guises of 150 hp / 380 Nm and 180 hp / 430 Nm. The former comes only with the 6-speed manual transmission while the latter can be paired to either a 6-speed manual or 9-speed automatic gearbox.
