Land Rover has had a long presence in the luxury SUV and crossover market. The Evoque model, for example, has been in production since 2012 and has been a popular vehicle since its inception. The exterior design, as well as the wonderfully stylish and comfortable interior, have always appealed to a specific type of public. We’re confident they’ll adore the 2017 Range Rover Evoque because it’s simply bigger, better, and more ready for action!

The Range Rover Evoque Convertible available in 2017 for those who enjoy driving with a bit of wind in their hair.

Exterior design

The exterior of the Land Rover 2017 Range Rover Evoque will be similar to that of the 2016 model. The headlights were significantly updated in that model year. The front bumper, larger air intakes, and grille were also modified. On the standard models, it has horizontal bars and a fine mesh-like pattern. Furthermore, higher trims received a hexagonal, finer-meshed grille. The front bumper on the 2017 model is a little more subdued, which adds to the modern appearance.

Furthermore, the Evoque now comes in a new trim level called Graphite Design Pack for 2017. The 20-inch wheels are finished in a lovely silver grey color. The front grille will remain black and grey throughout. This trim is tall, dark, and handsome thanks to a different shade of black on the roof and black exhausts.

The 2017 Range Rover Evoque will be available in four new colors in 2017. This brings the total number of color options to 18. Finally, there is the Evoque Ember edition, a limited edition that features red and black as the primary exterior and interior colors.

Interior design

Land Rover kept the interior design simple. At the top of the center console is an updated 8 or 10 inch LCD screen with some buttons underneath it. The remaining useful buttons are located on the steering wheel, where they are easily accessible to the driver. Furthermore, the entire interior features heavy stitching, a Land Rover trademark.

The 2017 Range Rover Evoque with automatic transmission does not have a stick shift, but rather a rotary gear knob. This adds a new twist to automotive interior design and was a brilliant architectural idea by whoever came up with it.

Ambient lighting is standard on the 2017 Evoque. On the HSE dynamic trims, this includes a variety of colors that can be selected via the infotainment system.

The standard audio system includes eight speakers distributed throughout the cabin. Finally, the higher trims include a Meridian 17-speaker sound system.

Engine specs

The available engine in the United States will be a 2.0-liter intercooled and turbocharged gasoline-fueled four-cylinder with direct injection. As a result, the horse power is 240. It has a nine-speed automatic transmission and is four-wheel drive. In Europe, this engine is also available.

Aside from the gasoline engine, Europeans can choose between two types of diesel engines for their 2017 Range Rover Evoque. They are both 2.0 liter turbo diesels, but one produces 150 horsepower while the other produces 180 horsepower. They are available with both automatic and manual transmission. Finally, four wheel drive is standard.

Electronic Stability Control and Roll Stability Control are standard safety features on the base trim of the 2017 Evoque. Additionally, ABS and driveline traction control, side impact beams, InControl Protect Emergency S.O.S, airbag occupancy sensor, and a backup camera are included.
