Aravind

Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Facelift includes minor visual upgrades and a new Ingenium diesel engine.

Land Rover will take the wraps off the 2016 Range Rover Evoque at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show tomorrow, previewing the new changes in tow for the baby Range Rover. Chinese auto portal AutoHome however already have the images of the car from the stall.

Building upon the impressive design, the new Range Rover Evoque comes with cosmetic changes that further improves the dynamic appeal of the crossover. The most noticeable changes are the new LED headlamps and DRLs, which are more angled than the previous design.

The top-spec Dynamic variant now comes with a honeycomb grille, while all variants have enlarged air intakes, which now feature slim LED foglamps on the upper portion. The 5-door model comes standard with vents on the bonnet (previously standard on the 3-door model only).

Similar to the headlamps, the taillights also receive the full LED treatment with a redesigned cluster. The facelift also features a new tailgate spoiler that houses a wider, slimmer LED brake light, and also integrates a new a hands-free function, where the owner can automatically open and close it by waving his/her foot beneath the rear bumper.

Equipment wise, the new Evoque now comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen display powered by the InControl Touch infotainment system. Higher variants feature InControl Touch Plus which can be spec’d with navigation, a pair of eight-inch video screens and wireless digital headphones for rear passengers, and a 11- or 17-speaker Meridian audio system.

The facelifted Evoque now comes with an all new 2.0L Ingenium diesel engine. The all-aluminum engine will be available in two variants: 180 PS or 150 PS, the latter being 18 percent more efficient than the previous Ford-sourced diesel unit.

The 2016 Evoque will still retain the Ford-sourced 2.0-liter EcoBoost petrol engine, producing 240 PS. Transmission options haven’t been confirmed yet, although it will most likely keep the 9-speed ZF unit from the previous model.

Prices will be announced closer to its market launch.
