2016 Range Rover Evoque Gets New Eyes, New Engines

While it's almost hard to believe, Range Rover's entry-level Evoque crossover is nearing four years old, which means a mid-life update is coming its way for 2016. Where has the time gone? Little is expected to change on the standard car's exterior for the new model year. However Range Rover is highlighting one very visible tweak – a new set of spectacles. Ranger Rover announced that the 2016 Evoque will adopt full LED adaptive headlamps, making it the first Land Rover to do so. They permit increased visibility in dark conditions thanks to road-following adjustments. The new design marks a striking change from the current Evoque and its rounded units.

In the US, the Evoque will net a 2.0-liter Ingenium gas engine, mated to the firm's nine-speed automatic gearbox and likely continuing to drive all four wheels as standard. A 2.0-liter diesel mill is also planned, though its US viability looks questionable. In 2012, Range Rover debuted an Evoque convertible concept at the Geneva Motor Show, and no less than three years later it appears that the concept will reach the production phase, according to the latest industry rumors. Range Rover says more details are on the way on February 23. Expect to see the Evoque in some format during the upcoming 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
