To celebrate the sale of over 520,000 Range Rover Evoques, Land Rover has introduced enhanced technology, increased customer choice and a distinctive Limited Edition.
Available in Coupe, Five-door and Convertible bodystyles, the Evoque is built at Jaguar Land Rover’s Halewood plant in the UK, where a new vehicle is built every 80 seconds.
Having won over 182 international awards since its launch in 2011, the Evoque is widely regarded as the world’s most desirable luxury compact SUV. To further enhance the global appeal of the sector defining vehicle, Land Rover is introducing the striking ‘Ember’ edition complete with a bold red and black theme adding an individual touch for customers wanting an even more distinctive design.
Responding to consumer demand for ever greater connectivity, the latest Range Rover Evoque now offers next-generation InControl Touch Pro infotainment. Market leading technology provides a 10.2-inch tablet-style pinch ‘n’ zoom touchscreen complete with streetview map options and a customisable home screen.
Ember Limited Edition
The red and black themed ‘Ember’ Limited Edition builds on the attributes of the Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic with striking exterior and interior details. A distinctive Firenze Red roof contrasts with the Santorini Black body colour and is complemented by matching exterior design elements, including the front and rear tow eye covers.
Phil Simmons, Land Rover’s Studio Director for Exterior Design Realisation said: “We wanted to give the Range Rover Evoque Ember Limited Edition a sporty feel; contrasting the intensity of the Firenze Red with Santorini Black really shows off the Evoque’s stand-out proportions.”
The addition of unique ‘EVOQUE’ tailgate badging in black, with a silver surround, and Narvik Black ‘RANGE ROVER’ lettering on the bonnet gives the limited edition further definition.
Black Pack elements including Satin Black 20-inch alloy wheels, Dynamic black exhaust finishers, Dynamic Narvik Black grille and darkened front and rear lights give the Ember a more purposeful appearance.
The ‘Ember’ theme continues inside, with Ebony Black seats sporting a contrasting Pimento Red stitch, complemented by black and red premium carpet mats and Gloss Black trim finishes.
The Range Rover Evoque ‘Ember’ will be available to order for a three-month period this summer.
The new InControl Touch Pro infotainment system optimises in-car connectivity by providing faster responses and more intuitive operation. Introduced from launch on the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, this now becomes available as an option from 2017 model year on the Range Rover Evoque Coupe and Five-door. The enhanced set-up includes a 10.2-inch touchscreen with a customisable home screen to ensure customers’ favourite apps are always at their fingertips.
The touchscreen behaves like a smartphone or tablet with swipe, pan and pinch to zoom controls and provides a clearer 21:9 super-wide format with 1280×542 pixel resolution – an 80 per cent increase over the Evoque’s standard eight-inch touchscreen.
Graphite Design Pack
A new Graphite Design Pack also enhances the exterior of Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic and Autobiography derivatives with a host of subtle design changes. Unique 20-inch alloy wheels in Satin Technical Grey are complemented by the Dynamic grille in Narvik Black with a Satin Dorchester Grey Surround, while the tow eye outer covers front and rear sport the same grey tone. A black contrast roof, bonnet and tailgate lettering, darkened front and rear lights and Dynamic black exhaust finishers complete the look on HSE Dynamic models.
In addition, the flagship Autobiography model benefits from black detailing on the door mirror caps, bonnet louvres, foglight surrounds, fender vents and tailgate finisher to highlight Evoque’s exterior design trademarks.
Customers will also be able to choose from a wider palette of exterior body colours than before. The addition of Aruba, Farallon Black, Carpathian Grey and Silicon Silver premium metallic paint finishes takes the total number of colour options to 18.
