Land Rover has made a few changes to the Range Rover Evoque lineup by releasing a new Ember Edition, along with new technology for some of the other variants in the model range.
While the carmaker tries to make a big deal out of the new special edition model, we cannot help think that the 2017 Range Rover Evoque Ember Edition interior is not that original. If you look closely it will remind you of the Jaguar XE and F Pace, and so just feels like a bit of recycling to us.
Not only that, but we can also see a similarity with the Evoque Ember Edition and the Nissan Juke Sport Edition, which is not a very good thing when you consider the price of the new Evoque model, which is £47,200.
This model is to go on sale in the summer, although not sure how many of you will want to be seen in one of these over-the-top Evoque’s? Ok, we know we are being a little harsh, but we have never been into this model because it reminds us of what a car roof would like like after it had been rolled in an accident.
So whats different about the Ember Edition Evoque – This only comes in the one color option, and that is Santorini Black with a Firenze Red roof. To complete the over-the-top paint-job is the satin black 20in alloy wheels, black grille and exhaust surrounds, along with darkened lights.
It’s the same dark affair on the inside, as the seats are black leather, along with black gloss trim and red stitching and red carpets.
The 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine is mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox and produces 177 horsepower and delivers 55mpg. For full details visit the JLR website.
