An update for the Evoque has been a long time coming, and it looks like we will see an update at the beginning of this next month in Geneva. If this update is anything like the two updates to the big body Range Rover and the Sport, we should see a boom in demand. The lead time on a new Big Body Range Rover was almost a year out. Many early adopters were forced to pay well above the MSRP for months after the release (if they could even get their name on the list). The Sport saw a very similar boom in demand. People were on long wait lists as their "local" dealer awaited their allotments. It was almost a year after the launch of the new generations before you could find an updated Rover on the lot and available for sale.
I am excited to see the new lines that they have sculpted for the Evoque. Will they take queues from the bigger Rovers, and have a similar lines to in the rear, or are they going to depart from the traditional Rover lines like they did with the Evoque. How will they update the power plant? How about the drivetrain? I personally LOVE the driving characteristics of the current Evoque. It feels like a plucky little car that, for me feels a lot like an Audi A4 2.0L Turbo. I hope they don't monkey with that too much!

(MAHWAH, NJ) - February 15, 2015 - Land Rover revealed today the first glimpse of the 2016 Range Rover Evoque, previewing a striking new headlamp design for the global best-selling Land Rover vehicle ever produced.
The 2016 Range Rover Evoque will be the first Land Rover vehicle to feature available full LED adaptive headlamps when it makes its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in March 3, 2015. This powerful lighting technology provides superior illumination in dark conditions, following the curves of the road, and is identifiable by its distinctive headlamp design1.
