Land Rover has not prepared any big surprises for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, but the company decided to still come at the show with some updates for the stunning Evoque . The luxury SUV is going to receive a new Black Design Pack offered on the sporty Dynamic version and set to be put on sale in April.
As its name suggests, the new Black Design Pack will add a host of striking black exterior details, starting with darkened front headlights and fog lamps, Santorini Black exhaust pipes, a gloss black rear bumper, a black rear sport spoiler and "Range Rover" lettering across the hood and tailgate also painted in Santorini Black. Specially designed for this package are also the 20-inch wheels offered in a nine-spoke design and painted in gloss black.
On the interior, this special edition will add yellow contrast stitching on seats, central storage area, door trims and fascia mid-section, plus an anodized yellow horizontal finisher.
Customers will have the possibility to choose between two exterior color schemes: Sicilian Yellow with a Santorini Black contrast roof, or Santorini Black with a Sicilian Yellow contrast roof and door mirrors.

A striking Fuji White Range Rover Evoque showcases the new Black Design Pack to full effect on Land Rover’s Geneva Motor Show stand. Available on the bold and sporting Dynamic derivative, customers can place their order from April this year.
The stunning coupé and 5-door models already offer unprecedented customer choice and personalisation options across three design themes: Pure, Prestige and Dynamic, to give every customer the opportunity to tailor their Evoque to suit their lifestyle.
The Black Design Pack emboldens the assertive and confident stance of the Range Rover Evoque ’Dynamic’, with a host of striking black exterior detailing exclusive to this model, including 20-inch, 9-spoke forged wheels painted in gloss black, never before offered as an option.
All exterior bright finishes have been removed to create the Black Design Pack. Dark exhaust finishers painted in Santorini Black are complemented by a gloss black rear bumper and inner and outer sump guard, which is carried through on the front.
Darkened front headlights and fog lamps continue the black theme whilst the rear lamps have been modified to give a clear effect so that they do not visually appear permanently red. Santorini Black painted ’RANGE ROVER’ lettering across both the bonnet and tailgate and a rear sport spoiler complete the look.
"With over 100,000 vehicles sold in its first full year of sales - more than any other previous Land Rover model, and 124 global awards, the Range Rover Evoque has proved itself as our most desirable product and continues to show rapid growth worldwide," said John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.
"Offering our customers even greater choice with the option of the striking Black Design Pack can only make the Evoque appeal to an even bigger audience. With its dynamic and sporty handling, formidable all-terrain performance, choice of premium luxury interiors and colour and feature combinations, customers truly can personalise their Evoque to suit their personality," added John Edwards.
The Black Design Pack made its debut earlier this year on the Sicilian Yellow Special Edition Evoque. Available in coupé and 5-door, customers can choose from two exterior colour schemes unique to the Special Edition: a Sicilian Yellow exterior body finish with a Santorini Black contrast roof, or a Santorini Black exterior body finish with a Sicilian Yellow contrast roof and door mirrors. Unique interior finishes include yellow contrast stitching on seats, central storage area, door trims and fascia mid-section, plus an anodised yellow horizontal finisher. Orders are being taken now for the Special Edition, with deliveries beginning in May.
The Range Rover Evoque is powered by a choice of engines. Land Rover’s powerful, efficient and lightweight 2.2 litre diesel engine, in both TD4 150PS and SD4 190PS guise, combined with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. The two-wheel drive eD4 is powered by the 150PS TD4 version of the engine combined with a six-speed manual gearbox and produces just 129g/km CO2. The lightweight Land Rover Si4 petrol engine delivers 240PS and is combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive.
Customers can also choose from a broad selection of Range Rover accessories. The accessory range includes exterior and interior features, together with a comprehensive choice of practical loading and towing items.
