Manufactured only in the UK, China and India, 2016 Range Rover Evoque from Land Rover will make its debut in India on the 19th November 2015. It will be seen with subtle updates on the exterior and interiors, along with new added features. Engine options remain unchanged.
First launched in 2011, Range Rover Evoque has become Land Rover’s best selling car globally. It was in March this year that Land Rover India started CKD operations of the Evoque from their plant in Pune. This saw the price of Evoque decline by INR 20 lakh, as compared to the price of CBU Evoque. This resulted in Evoque sales increasing by 30%, as compared to what was expected.
Speaking about the updates one will see on board the Evoque facelift, these will be in the form of full-LED headlamps, new grille, new alloys, and new bumper. On the inside, Evoque gets new colours, premium material, 8 inch touchscreen system, new seats, and new door casings.
New features on board the Evoque facelift includes – head-up display, rear seat entertainment, 825 Watts MeridianTM Surround Sound System with 17 speakers, surround camera system, and hands-free tailgate function.
Engine options on board will include 2.2 liter diesel engine generating 188 bhp and 420 Nm torque. This is delivered to all four wheels via a 9 speed autobox. The petrol 2.0 liter coupe variant, will continue to be sold as a CBU in the facelift line-up as well.
Price of CKD variants of Evoque facelift are expected to be in the range of INR 60-70 lakh, on-road, Pune.
