All these attractive styling elements are not limited just to the sheet metal, as the 2016 refreshed Evoque gets significant updates in the interiors as well. The most important changes are the new seats, both front and back, which now get optional extras like heated and ventilated front while, the rear gets heated outboards. Additionally, a large 8-inch touchscreen has been integrated at the centre of the dash that looks aesthetically pleasing and is easy to use as well. This infotainment screen also comes with Land Rover’s InControl Apps that seamlessly integrates Apple and Android smartphones.
