Updated 2017 Range Rover Evoque announced

More equipment, better performance off-road and a new touch-screen infotainment system are the headline changes for the Evoque, alongside a new limited-edition model

  • All models get latest touch-screen infotainment system
  • Red and black Ember special edition launched at same time
  • On sale in the summer
Range Rover has announced a series of updates to the Evoque, adding extra equipment and introducing a new special-edition version.

The most obvious change is to the cabin, where the latest touch-screen infotainment system will be available. The ‘InControl Touch Pro’ system (as seen on the Evoque convertible, and also used by Jaguar on the XE, XF and F-Pace) is based around a 10.2-inch screen, which allows smartphone-style pinch and zoom operation, as well as a customisable home screen. It will be standard on the HSE Dynamic, HSE Dynamic Lux and Autobiography models.

The full range also now comes with a ‘Low Traction Launch’ system, which controls the amount of torque a driver can apply, limiting wheelspin to help the car pull away on low-friction surfaces.

At the same time, SE Tech models gain 12-way electrically operated seats and Automatic High Beam Assist; Autobiography models have the option of a new £2125 Graphite Design Pack, which includes unique alloys, as well as various details finished in black or grey; and, the new Ember limited edition (pictured above) has been announced.

Available for just three months this summer, this special model costs from £47,200 and first deliveries are expected in September. It stands out from other Evoques thanks to a red roof and several smaller details that contrast with the black body, which is itself enhanced by various components – including the 20-inch alloys, exhaust finishers and grille – all being finished in black.

The front and rear lights are also darkened, while the finishing touches come in the interior, where the black seats have red stitching, the carpets are red and black, and various pieces of trim are finished in gloss black.

The revised Evoque goes on sale in the summer, with SE Tech models costing from £33,000 and HSE Dynamic trim starting at £41,400.
