The Range Rover Evoque has been given something of a facelift in preparation for the 2016 model year, plus revisions to the interior and the introduction of a new diesel engine.

The most obvious changes are the introduction of a new front bumper with larger air intakes and slim LED fog-lights, two new grille designs, and restyled headlights with LED illumination.

The rear of the Evoque sees a new tailgate spoiler, plus a new LED high-level brake light and LED tail-lights.

There are also three new alloy wheel designs to choose from.

The interior has received new seats and door casings, a redesigned instrument binnacle, new soft-touch materials, and a new infotainment system with an eight-inch touch-screen.

There are also more colour combinations to choose from, with 8-way electrically-adjustable leather seats now standard, with the option of 14-way adjustment and a massage function.

Engineering changes start with the introduction of a new ‘Ingenium’ diesel engine.  It’s up to 30kg lighter than its predecessor, and is offered in two power outputs – 150PS (with CO2 emissions of 109 g/km and up to 68 mpg), and 180PS (125 g/km and 59 mpg).

Land Rover says this makes the new Evoque its most efficient model ever.

The 240PS Si4 petrol engine continues to be available, with its 0-62mph time of just 7.6 seconds, economy of 36 mpg and emissions of 181 g/km.

The Evoque’s trim grades have been realigned to match the Range Rover Sport, with SE, HSE Dynamic and Autobiography models now available.

In addition, service intervals for diesel models have been extended from 16,000 miles to 21,000.

Update 16/4/2015: The revised Evoque range will be priced from £30,200 when it goes on sale in the UK this September.
