The Range Rover Evoque and Discovery Sport are both getting updates for the 2024 model year. The two vehicles, which share a platform and a manufacturing site at Halewood, England, are taking on design tweaks to further align them with Land Rover's new stronger emphasis on their three primary product families, as well as taking on the latest PiviPro technology.
The biggest change in both vehicles is the introduction of the new 11.4" Pivi Pro screen, which integrates permanent sidebars to access functions like climate control, media selections, volume control, and navigation. The updated system, which debuted in the new Range Rover Velar, puts about 85% of all tasks within two taps of the home screen. This technology has already made it into most other Land Rover models, and is intended to bring the reductive design of buttonless controls to the lineup, while still providing an easy-to-use and functional system.
Range Rover Evoque gets some style updates to further align it with the new fifth-generation Range Rover, with a new grille and lights that mimic the new aesthetic. This unifies the entire Range Rover family with the same grille design, light aesthetic, and pop-out door handles.
The Evoque and Discovery Sport also offer Cabin Air Purification Plus for the first time, which among other things can filter out PM2.5 particulates from the fresh air intake -- a consideration this summer as Canadian wildfires have damaged air quality in many areas. An Air Quality Index app even allows you to see the difference in air quality at your origin and destination points on your journey.
Discovery Sport now offers a digital instrument cluster as standard, with steering wheel paddles also standard for gear shifts. The shifted screen creates a wireless charging dock, also now available in Evoque. There's also a new grille to tie Discovery Sport and the full-size Discovery together better and tweaks and changes to exterior cladding.
These changes integrate the two smallest models in these product families into the design aesthetic of each product family, further promoting Land Rover's new three-part "Family of Brands" strategy.
