“Hold that Evoque”. Really? We jest a little, but Jeep is serious about its cars having a premium edge to them. The company is on real high right now; last month was its best ever for UK sales, while 2015’s total registrations here outstripped those of 2011, ’12, ’13 and ’14 combined. This poshed-up Cherokee Overland aims to ride that wave of positivity. So what’s new? It has what Jeep calls ‘sophisticated styling’. So body coloured bumpers replace more rufty tufty black ones, there are swankier, bi-xenon headlights and a set of 18in polished alloys so bright you can use them to do your hair. Those wheels also house a little Willys motif, a frivolous extra that fits with Jeep’s current philosophy of sneaking little Easter Eggs into the styling of all its cars.
