Range Rover Evoque: Ember limited edition and tech upgrade for baby Rangie

The Range Rover Evoque is enhancing its appeal to fashionistas and technophiles alike with a special edition model and the availability of a smarter, smartphone-influenced infotainment system.

Sales of the baby Rangie aren’t quite on fire like they were during its initial launch phase, though the Ember Limited Edition instead reflects a black and red theme that builds on the Evoque’s smouldering looks. 

The body is dominated by a Santorini Black paintjob, with a dying-fire effect created by a Firenze Red applied to the rear diffuser, front bumper, and roof (bordering a large panoramic roof).

Satin Black 20-inch alloy wheels fill the guards, front and rear lights are darkened, and the exhaust tips, grille, and Range Rover bonnet lettering are also finished in black. 

To help buyers further justify burning the extra $16,504 in their pocket over the $76,995 Range Rover Evoque Td4 180 HSE Dynamic five-door on which the Ember is based, LED adaptive headlights and signature lighting are added, and the interior also gains some themed upgrades.

Occupants sit on Ebony Black leather seats with red stitching, and rest feet on black/red carpet mats. Black Oxford leather with red stitching is also applied to the dash fascia. 

The $93,499 Range Rover Evoque Ember Limited Edition, powered by a 132kW/430Nm 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel, goes on sale in the last quarter of 2016.

The Evoque range, including the new Convertible variant, is also now available with Jaguar-Land Rover’s flagship infotainment system – the InControl Touch Pro that features a 10.2-inch touchscreen with tablet-style pinch-and-zoom functionality.

The Range Rover Evoque continues to be priced from $51,995 to $80,605 in five-door form, and from $73,995 to $80,605 in Coupe guise.
