One of the main reasons of selecting the 2016 Evoque was the technology features. For example:Lane-Keeping Assist to prevent unintended lane changes by monitoring road markings. If the vehicle begins to drift into an adjacent lane without the driver signalling beforehand, Lane-Keeping Assist applies a gentle steering correction to maintain its lane position.Park Assist - Parallel Park/Parking Exit/Perpendicular Park.Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist, Forward Alert, and High-Speed Intelligent Emergency Braking.From what I have seen so far owning the vehicle for about 4 weeks now. None of the technology in the vehicle really works properly! I would say its more "half-baked" in its current form. I previously have owned Lexus, BMW and other high-end vehicles and have never had issues with technology packages as much as I have with this vehicle. My BMW could parallel park itself in spaces that I am 100% positive I could not personally squeeze into. That's the whole point of adding these packages as they provide a convenience! The Parking Assist is worthless. The system has never correctly parked itself, not even once! Pulling perpendicular into space the size of an RV is hilarious to watch. The vehicle moves front, back, front, back, so many times its the definition of insanity. I would say 90% of the time, regardless of perpendicular or parallel parking, if I didn't disengage the system the vehicle would just plow into one of the vehicles it's trying to park between. How is this an added feature? They should stop selling this feature or touting it as advanced technology when it's utterly a failure before someone slaps them with a class action lawsuit. The lane assist feature does vibrate the steering wheel (sometimes) assuming all conditions are met, however doing so lightly, but it doesn't aid in automatic corrective measures as the brochure claims it does. The Forward Alert and High-Speed Intelligent Emergency Braking don't seem to work either, or if they did I wouldn't be willing to bet my life on it. The other day, as traffic slowed, I elected to see how far I could "push" the systems before it would alert me or engage. It did neither. If not by human or otherwise divine intervention I would have plowed into the traffic jam in front of me.It's shocking to me that no one else other than me seems to be complaining of these technology failures. I sometimes wonder if we are the only ones that "bought into" the technology promises and were "upsold" on the premier packages!?

Apparently your carriage return has also failed. :lol:

In what I was able to make out I would highly suggest you actually read how these functions work on NAS models and not follow what they do in other markets. Thinking that your accessories are going to work the same as the marketing materials show for ROW and EU spec rigs is setting yourself up for disappointment. In addition comparing anything on the technology front to marques like BMW is just begging failure from the start. No Land ROver vehical has ever been at the same level of tech for BMW, Mercedes etc.

ACC, forward alert and queue assist all work properly as they are designed. I have had no issues with the park assist IF I am correctly positioned from step one. If I am off then the system dos not park properly... no surpise there.

Apologies, but once I saw the lame, sue happy stance of "lawsuit" I stopped trying to read. Get to know your systems and how they are suppose to work instead of how you think they should work. In addition to a huge learning curve there are basic steps for each system... like making sure it is turned/activated in your setup/accessories screens.

I don't understand your comment regarding "Apparently your carriage return has also failed."

Lame, sue happy stance.... If you are sold a vehicle and the specifications sheet says it can do A B and C and then you take possession only to be told, the window sticker is wrong and it can only do C you would be quite upset as well.

As for comparing technologies, I am becoming aware that RR cannot compete with the likes of the Germans and Japanese and their respective technologies.

In what I had the option to make out I would exceptionally recommend you really read how these capacities work on NAS models and not follow how they treat different business sectors. Believing that your embellishments will work equivalent to the advertising materials show for ROW and EU spec rigs is setting yourself up for dissatisfaction. Moreover contrasting anything on the innovation front with marques like BMW is simply asking disappointment from the beginning. No Land ROver vehical has at any point been at a similar degree of tech for BMW, Mercedes and so on
