Land Rover has announced full pricing of its recently updated Range Rover Evoque. The chic baby SUV now receives a host of minor changes that include a new diesel engine capable of 68mpg - the firm's most efficient ever. It'll cost from £30,200 when it goes on sale in September 2015.

The wedgy Evoque has been around since 2011 and still looks fresh, but rivals have since caught up in other areas. So a a host of mid-life changes, comprising subtle visual tweaks, new engines and safety kit, are a bid to keep the car at the top of its game.

Full pricing details for the new Evoque have now been revealed, and the base 2.0-litre eD4 148bhp diesel (the one that hits 68mpg) will cost from £30,200 in SE spec.

What's new with the new RR Evoque?

The key Evoque facelift changes is six easy to swallow points... 

1. Engine: JLR’s new 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel now appears in the Evoque, and promises CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km.

2. Alloys: Six new designs offer greater scope for personalisation; buyers have 12 styles to pick from. 

3. Grille: Outgoing Evoque’s flashy two-bar grille makes way for mean-looking mesh.

4. Interior: New materials and colours appear inside, as does JLR’s slick app-based InControl infotainment system.

5. Rear: New spoiler features an integrated brake light, while smart tail-lamps have integrated LED daytime running lights.

6. Lights: Evoque becomes first Land Rover to get adaptive full-LED headlamps. It has new daytime running lights, too.

Range Rover Evoque 2015 revisions: in detail

On the outside, the changes are light, but they reflect just how radical the baby Rangie was and still is. The Evoque becomes the first Jaguar Land Rover model to get full-LED adaptive headlamps. The lights are standard on top-spec Autobiography models, offer increased range over versions fitted with projector lamps and move with steering wheel inputs.

Also, as part of the visual nip and tuck, the Evoque has even more distinctive LED daytime running lights which include LED indicators, a more muscular-looking front bumper with larger air intakes and slimmer foglamps, and two new mesh grille designs. To the rear, there’s a new spoiler with an integrated LED third brake light, new tail-lamps with LED daytime running lights and a ‘hands-free’ electric tailgate. Customers can pick from a greater range of paint finishes, too: Waitomo Grey Premium Metallic and Baltoro Ice Metallic join the ranks, bringing the colour choices to 13. Plus, there are six new alloy wheel designs. 

Inside, there are three new colour combinations, new seats and more leather-covered surfaces, plus revised dials including a new TFT display between the speedo and rev counter.

The cosmetic changes clothe more important developments under the skin, though. The 2.2-litre, four-cylinder diesel has been axed in favour of JLR’s Ingenium 2.0-litre engines. The entry-level 148bhp two-wheel-drive eD4 – marked out by special blue Evoque badging to denote its eco credentials – claims 68mpg economy and emits 109g/km of CO2,

The more powerful Ingenium unit, the 178bhp TD4, promises 59mpg and 125g/km and costs and extra £2,600 in the same spec. It rises to £46,000 for the HSE Dynamic Lux with all the kit.

Akk models get stop/start as standard, while the diesels get a choice of six-speed manual and nine-speed auto transmissions. But petrol fans can still choose the automatic-only 237bhp Si4 2.0-litre turbo from £43,000. Engineers have retuned the suspension in light of the featherweight engines to deliver improved handling, too.

It’s not just the engines which bring the Evoque bang up to date – the car’s technology has been overhauled, too. As with the new Jaguar XE, the Evoque now gets JLR’s InControl eight-screen touchscreen infotainment system, which offers a slicker interface than before and a whole raft of useful apps. 

InControl Touch Plus also debuts on top-drawer HSE Dynamic Lux and Autobiography models, and adds sat-nav, an 11-speaker Meridian sound system, rear-seat entertainment, digital wireless headphones and dual-view screen functionality. 

Upgraded safety kit on the new Evoque includes Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane-Keeping Assist, driver fatigue warning and all-new All-Terrain Progress Control. Buyers will get a choice of SE, HSE Dynamic and Autobiography trims, and while prices have yet to be confirmed, a spokesman said they’d be comparable with the current car’s. Deliveries will start in August, and the facelifted model’s arrival is expected to be followed closely by the launch of the Evoque Convertible
