Evoque 2017 - HSE > Side Rear View Mirror (Adjustment / Memory Position Hold)
As a former owner of a 2016 DISCO Sport HSE, I was use to the side rear view mirror maintaining a specific downward angle (per my adjustment) when the transmission shifter knob was positioned in R (reverse). With the new EVOQUE -- I can see the mirror dip downward, but the angle is very minimal or not enough to view the curve of the sidewalk during R (reverse) parking. I tried to adjust (and even press the Memory # Setting) hoping it would hold and maintain position the next time I placed the EVOQUE in R (reverse). No luck Any suggestions ?
Ps - I am still trying to get use to NOT having the remote Key Fob close the trunk 😉 ! One of many nuisances I have noticed between the EVOQUE and DISCO...

Gma, Welcome to the forum!
Our MY13 Evoque Coupe has the reverse dipping memory capability. However, I believe from MY16 on, the mirrors only go to a factory fixed position, and cannot be adjusted to where you want/need them, and the position saved. Don't know why JLR would do away with the memory setting, but they have.
EDIT: From the MY16 owner's manual:
