2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Interior Review

Making its debut at the Geneva Auto Show is the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque model. All of the details of the car have been unveiled ahead of time and before its official showcasing so there are not many details that may be regarded as new or unknown for the car. Thus we do get to provide a full review for you with all the news available before the scheduled release date.

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque brand has been introduced for the first time in 2012 as part of the compact-luxury-crossover  expansion of the market and was dubbed as an immediately luxury SUV. As the brand quickly became popular there was a slight update in 2014 in order to keep the model afloat and continue the popularity which has been brought on it. The 2016 model year is going to do the same as there are a few quirks that have been enhanced and changed for the brand not making any drastic moves at the same time.

The exterior of the car is going to make just a few changes and is not going to change a whole lot of the Evoque. The biggest news is actually the release of the new lineup of engines that the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is going to use. Sadly, although this rumor is true, none of the new engines are going to be available for the US market.

2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is battling it out with the new version of the Mercedes-Benz GLA and the latest Audi Q3 which pose a great threat to the Evoque. It was a great car on its initial release but they still have to do something in order to keep it competitive.
