Land Rover has managed to sell more than half a million Range Rover Evoque units following its production kick off back in July 2011 and the popular premium crossover has now been treated to a mid life-cycle update.
The model still has a fresh design after half a decade on the market so the automaker hasn’t actually touched the exterior design, instead taking its time to improve the bits and pieces that make up the technology package. The facelifted Evoque now gains a new InControl Touch Pro infotainment system that will deliver better in-car connectivity through “faster responses and more intuitive operation.” The system was actually first available on the Range Rover Evoque Convertible and it will be offered as an optional extra starting with the 2017 model year on the coupe and five-door versions. The In Control Touch Pro comes with a 10.2-inch touchscreen with a customizable graphics and Land Rover its operation is inspired by the ubiquitous smartphones and tablets.
Additionally, for the first three months of production of the 2017 Evoque the new Ember Limited Edition model will become available, developed starting from the HSE Dynamic trim. It wears a Santorini Black paint job with contrasting Firenze Red roof and also has black 20-inch alloys, black exhaust surrounds, a black grille, and darkened lights as part of the Black Pack. The theme is also found inside, with Ebony Black seats and contrasting Pimento Red stitching. Land Rover will only deliver the Range Rover Evoque Ember Limited Edition in the United Kingdom, South Korea, Australia, Russia, Japan, South Africa, Brazil, India, and China. First deliveries are expected for September.
