** Double roof fins are for vehicles with the hotspot option, second antenna is for the 3G radio – 3G, is it 2010? How many people in the car are actually supposed to share that lightning fast 3G connection? Will the extra antenna really make any difference?
** Dial graphics have been refreshed and the 5” screen resolution has doubled to VGA levels – 640 x 480.
** Ingenium TD4 brings a new blue badging to Evoque, highlighting its E-Capability
** I hate to call out a JLR employee but I’ll paste in the quote below – I think it explains why the current generation systems are so rough – no one at Jaguar Land Rover should be talking about “vast experience” or “competitive advantage” with regard their current and/or previous systems. Here’s hoping InControl Touch lives up to the hype but it’s still worrying. Do the people within JLR realize how many edges were left unpolished in the current systems?
“Land Rover has vast experience with touchscreen infotainment systems, providing a huge competitive advantage as consumers increasingly become accustomed to touchscreen technology via smartphones and tablets,” said Danella Bagnall, Vehicle Line Director, Evoque.
** Evoque’s Hands-Free Tailgate can be activated both from directly behind the vehicle, and from either side of the bumper

Striking new headlamp signature for 2016 model year Range Rover Evoque
First Land Rover to feature full LED adaptive headlamps
Image previews latest version of Land Rover’s most successful model
Whitley, UK, 16 February 2015 - Land Rover has today revealed the first glimpse of the 2016 model year Range Rover Evoque, previewing a striking new headlamp signature for the most successful Land Rover ever produced.
The 2016 model year Range Rover Evoque will be the first Land Rover to feature full LED adaptive headlamps when it makes its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show on 3 March 2015. The powerful technology provides superior illumination in dark conditions, following the curves of the road, and is identifiable by the distinctive headlamp graphic.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer, said: "Our challenge has been to enhance Evoque without diluting its iconic design. The design refreshments give it an even greater presence on the road yet retain the emotional appeal that has made it so popular with more than 400,000 consumers around the world."
The 2016 model year Range Rover Evoque includes a new engine line-up, new safety and convenience features, and interior enhancements all wrapped in the trademark exterior design.
Further details of the 2016 model year Range Rover Evoque will be released on 23 February 2015.
