A few weeks back, Land Rover launched the 2021 Range Rover Velar in India. Now, the carmaker has launched the updated version of the baby Range Rover, the Evoque, at a starting price of Rs 64.12 lakh (ex-showroom India). It is available in two variants: S and R-Dynamic SE. While the S variant is available with a diesel engine only, the R-Dynamic SE is a petrol-only variant.

It also gets updated tech in the form of a 3D Surround Camera, wireless mobile charging and Cabin Air Ionisation with a PM2.5 filter. The updated Evoque also gets the latest version of the Pivi Pro infotainment system (consists of two 10-inch touchscreens).
