Ember Special Edition
Pinching some elements from the existing Black Pack – namely Satin Black 20-inch alloy wheels, Dynamic Black exhaust finishers, Dynamic Narvik Black grille and darkened front and rear lights – the new Ember Special edition introduces a red-and-black contrast theme with the combination of Santorini Black bodywork and a Firenze Red roof. The theme continues inside, where black leather is offset by Pimento Red stitching and black-and-red carpets.
Meanwhile there’s unique ‘EVOQUE’ tailgate badging in black, with a silver surround, and Narvik Black ‘RANGE ROVER’ lettering on the bonnet.
‘We wanted to give the Range Rover Evoque Ember Special Edition a sporty feel,’ said Phil Simmons, Land Rover’s Studio Director for Exterior Design Realisation. ‘Contrasting the intensity of the Firenze Red with Santorini Black really shows off the Evoque’s stand-out proportions.’
The Range Rover Evoque Ember will be available to order for a limited three-month period over the summer. First deliveries are expected from September, and prices will start from £47,200 on the road.
Off-road launch control
A new feature for Land Rover, ‘Low Traction Launch’ is a manually selectable mode that controls the amount of torque the driver applies to the wheels – ideal then for those impromptu drag races on the beach you keep finding yourself caught up in…
New infotainment – hooray!
JLR’s InControl Touch Pro infotainment system will become available across the range for the new 2017 model year. The recently-launched Evoque Convertible was the first Evoque to receive the 10.2-inch touchscreen, which aims to mirror the usability of a tablet – a big improvement on the previous version. Now optional across the range, it comes as standard for HSE Dynamic, HSE Dynamic Lux and Autobiography.
Extra standard equipment, but price hikes to match
The Evoque SE Tech (one up from the base SE spec) sees the addition of 12-way powered seats and Automatic High Beam Assist with pricing starting at £33,000 (up from £32,600).
The HSE Dynamic (now up from £40,900 to £41,400) and higher spec levels now come with All Terrain Progress Control (automatic versions only), as well as InControl Touch Pro and it’s associated package of apps.
For the Autobiography, a newGraphite Design Pack gives the option of unique 20-inch alloy wheels in Satin Technical Grey, a Dynamic grille in Narvik Black, plus black contrast roof and a range of extra black and grey exterior detailing. The Graphite Design Pack will cost UK buyers £2125.
A wider range of exterior body colours is also available, with the addition of Aruba, Farallon Black, Carpathian Grey and Silicon Silver to the palette.
