Jaguar Land Rover India has announced the launch of 2016 Range Rover Evoque in November 2015 in the country. The Range Rover Evoque facelift had its world premiere at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show on March 3, 2015. The British luxury marquee has also announced that the bookings for the new Evoque are now open at all authorised Land Rover retail outlets, nationwide. The 2016 Evoque comes with several cosmetic changes as compared to the current model.
Rohit Suri, President, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd (JLRIL), said, “Over the years, the response to the Range Rover Evoque has been phenomenal across the world and India has been no exception. With its striking lines, muscular shoulder and tapered roof, the 2016 Range Rover Evoque sets itself apart from its contemporaries and is loved by the young at heart who want to make an ultimate statement of their style and individuality. The fabulous design, coupled with class-leading technology and luxury features make the 2016 Range Rover Evoque an unbeatable choice.” For those asking, 2016 Range Rover Evoque gets several class-leading features such as Hands-free tailgate function, Head Up Display, Surround Camera System, 17 Speakers, 825 Watts MeridianTM Surround Sound System, and Rear Seat Entertainment among others.
Land Rover, during the world premiere of 2016 Evoque at Geneva Motor Show, revealed that it is the most efficient production Land Rover ever as it comes loaded with the all-aluminium Ingenium TD4 diesel engine. Just so you know, the aforementioned engine is around 20-30kgs lighter and 18 percent more efficient than its predecessor. It develops power in two tunes: 148bhp and 177bhp. However, it is still not clear that which power tune the India-spec model would come with or even the Ingenium powertrain would really make its Indian debut with the Evoque. Currently, the Evoque SUV in India is offered with a 2.2L SD4 diesel engine which churns out 188bhp of power. JLR India started the local production of Evoque at its Pune facility in March, and due to which the pricing of the baby SUV fell by some good 8-10 Lakhs. As of now, Range Rover Evoque comes in three variants - Pure, Dynamic and Prestige - starting from Rs. 48.73 Lakhs and going as high as Rs. 56.21 Lakhs (Both prices are Ex-Showroom Mumbai, Pre-Octroi).
