Land Rover, or more precisely its Range Rover part made quite an influence within posh and luxury part of the automotive world. Aristocratic tendencies of top Range Rover can be matched only by equally British Bentley Bentayga, but you don’t have to go that far to catch a part of that lavishness. Brand’s smallest SUV carries enough of its own character, luxury and trendiness to suit variable tastes of people looking for prestige crossover.
Evoque was introduced in 2011 and it became an instant hit, without breaking a sweat, while Mini Countryman got its match, though not direct one as it is situated one class above it. Brits continued with the daring story in 2016, when the topless version was offered, making it first SUV cabriolet sold in Europe, while the US had an opportunity to taste Nissan Murano in the same configuration from 2010 to 2014. Despite everything six years has passed since introduction and Land Rover has to keep us entertained, so new and special 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Ember Edition is strolling down the streets these days.
WHAT IS IT?
It is a special edition of compact crossover which has so far won 182 global awards for its funkiness among else. This should push its poshness even further but in limited numbers.
Model in question was available for order only during a three-month period last year, while vehicles are still delivered as we speak, with starting price of £47,200 or about $59,000.
The special model received unique color treatment, for which executive of British car maker Phil Simmons stated it should emphasize its sportiness. The body is covered by Santorini Black paint, while roof contrasts that in a wild manner with Firenze Red coloring.
The same fiery tint is located on the front bumper and overlays skid plate at the back. Both front and tail lights are blacked out, and same goes for exhaust tips. Other special touches are Satin Black 20-inch alloy wheels and unique black and red carpet mats. Rest of the cabin hasn’t been left out, as black leather upholstery and gloss finishes are matched with contrast red stitching.
There is some new tech for 2017 model, and it is not reserved for just this special version. All Terrain system features new Low Traction Launch technology that limits the amount of torque that engine sends to wheels, thereby eliminating possible wheel spin and improving traction.
Another novelty would be updated InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, with a 10.2-inch touchscreen that reacts much faster and provides better resolution than the older 8-inch display. Besides other things, it can communicate by itself with you family or friends notifying them via SMS that you are going to be late and it also features view from above of your vehicle which does come handy in crowded city streets or parking lots.
