The second-gen Range Rover Evoque had its world debut in November 2018. Dealer sources have informed IAB that it's scheduled to be launched in India in February 2020.
The Range Rover Evoque has gained a Range Rover Velar-inspired exterior design with the first full model change. The use of the slimmer Matrix LED headlamps along with the fresh design of the main front grille contributes to its much-sophisticated appearance. The front bumper blades with copper-coloured detailing, the flush door handles and the slimmer rear combination lamps further accentuate its premium presence.
Step inside, and you'll notice that changes to the cabin are even more prominent. It follows the footsteps of its premium cousin which is reflected on its interior styling as well. Speaking of which, it uses an uncluttered, minimalist and digital cabin. All the part such as steering wheel, the instrument cluster, the centre console and the floor console look Velar-derived.
The off-road capabilities of the Range Rover Evoque also have been enhanced with the lifecycle makeover. Its water wading depth has increased by 100 mm to 600 mm. Apart from that, it has also acquired Terrain Response 2 and ClearSight Ground View which is a boon for adventure drivers. The ClearSight Ground View function displays a 180-degree camera view of the underside of the front bumper. Hence, it can be used for precise steering inputs during tricky times in the rough terrain.
