The 2016 Range Rover Evoque has been launched in India and it competes with the Audi Q5, Volvo XC60 and BMW X3. The luxury compact SUV now comes with a 3-year service plan and 3-years, 1-lakh kms warranty.
Land Rover has just launched the 2016 Range Rover Evoque in India at a starting price of Rs. 47.1 lakhs (ex-showroom, Mumbai). The Evoque has always been a very popular SUV in global markets as well as the Indian market and the vehicle has largely been known for its appealing looks and loaded interiors. The Evoque also boasts of pretty good off-roading capabilities. The vehicle was first launched quite a few years back in 2011 and now the company has given it a minor refresh.
On the exteriors front, the 2016 Range Rover Evoque now gets new bumpers, two grille designs (depending on the trim), all-LED adaptive headlamps and new alloy wheels. The vehicle also gets a new rear spoiler and LED rear brake lights. The insides also get some changes like new seats, door pads, soft-touch materials and a longer list of colour options. SE variants of the Evoque come with leather upholstery and 8-way adjustable seats and the HSE variants get 14-way adjustable seats with massage function.
In global markets, the 2016 Range Rover Evoque gets a new 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine but the Indian version continues to be powered by the same 2.2-litre oil-burner that is known to belt out 190 PS of power and 420 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 9-speed ZF automatic transmission. The Evoque also comes with AWD.
Land Rover sold more than 40,000 units of the pre-facelift Evoque in all markets combined and it is likely that the new model will sell even higher considering the fact that it comes across as a much better package. The Evoque was earlier available in India as a CBU but the automaker then started assembling CKD kits thus bringing down its price significantly. Bookings for the 2016 Range Rover Evoque began a month back in India and has received 125 bookings already. The vehicle is offered with 3-years/1-lakh kms warranty while a 3-year service plan is also offered.
