Range Rover Evoque
Range Rover's Evoque has rewritten the 4x4 rulebook. It delivers the emissions of a supermini and the sharp handling of a sports coupé, but still manages to be as smooth and comfortable as Range Rover's larger models. The 2.2-litre diesel engine is efficient, too, returning close to 57.6mpg. The car is impressive around town, off-road and on long journeys, while the sharp looks mean you won’t go unnoticed, either.
- Stunning styling
- Equally capable on and off-road
- Comfortable and luxurious
- Enticing optional extras soon add up
- Fairly high running costs
- Too many versions
At last, something entirely fresh and bold has arrived in the small premium SUV marketplace. The Range Rover Evoque has achieved the seemingly impossible, combining the superb off-road ability you’d expect from Land Rover with excellent, almost sporty handling on the road, low emissions, impressive economy and sharp coupe looks. Throw in Range Rover's traditional comfort and luxury, add a modern twist, and the Evoque is a sure-fire winner.
