After just under five years, the Range Rover Evoque is getting a facelift. The refresh that the smallest Range Rover undergoes is remarkably brief and is therefore very similar to the update that the Range Rover Velar recently underwent.
You have to have the current generation Range Rover Evoque in mind to immediately see the differences with the pre-facelift model. The Evoque gets new Pixel Led matrix headlights with a different interpretation and the signature in the rear lights is also being overhauled. Furthermore, the customer can choose from new paint colors and a handful of small external details will change for a number of versions.
Inside we see a bigger change as we find a completely new center console in this sharpened Evoque. The Range Rover Evoque gets a new curved 11.4-inch infotainment screen that is no longer integrated into the center console but appears to float slightly in front of it. The second screen that you used to find one floor below and with which you controlled the climate control, among other things, makes way for a storage compartment with an induction charger. The buttons for the climate control are now virtually housed in the infotainment screen. Leather upholstery is no longer available in the Evoque from now on. Range Rover does supply the Evoque with Kvadrat (wool) from now on.
The updated Range Rover Evoque is available in S, SE, HSE, and Autobiography trims. As before, there is a plug-in hybrid powertrain again. It is called P300e and gives the compact SUV a range of up to 62 kilometers thanks to a new composition of the 14.9-kWh battery. The P300e again has a three-cylinder petrol engine that, together with an electric power source, produces a system power of 309 hp. You can sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds. Of course, there are again mild hybrids.
