    Add the fact that remote starts are not available among other things lacking.
    You would think that these would be standard, but not available at all is a disappointment.

    As they say... "The US and the UK, two countries separated by a common language." Here in the US "Keyless Entry" is defined as unlocking a vehicle by pressing a button on a key fob. "Passive Entry" is defined in the US, as having to not use the key fob, and just touch the door handle. The Brits define "Keyless Entry" by what we call "Passive Entry". So unless your Evoque is equipped with Passive Entry, which was an upgrade option on most models, you can't lock/unlock the doors by just touching the door handles. To add to the confusion, the door handles, for most model years, are the same whether you have Passive Entry or not.

    I don't know what MY Evoque you have. I do know that up through MY13 the door handles are the same with or without passive entry. The electronic door lock module is different for passive entry. You can have a look at the parts list at the link below, to see that they list a lock actuator with passive entry, and one without passive entry. Don't know if other electronic components would have to be changed out as well.

    They sell both passive and non passive.
    Im sure it would take a reprogramming from the dealer. Wonder if they would do it?
    I already talked to my dealer about activating daylight running lights and they said there is no way to do it and I know that other owners have had it done.
