The Range Rover Evoque balances several desirable elements from sister models. The classic desirability of the Range Rover is combined with enhanced styling and a luxurious interior. Unlike the Range Rover, however, the Evoque offers all these features at an affordable price. The tubocharged four-cylinder engines within the Evoque are accessible to most at less than £30,000; while the diesel engine version is slightly more expensive at £40,000. Other affordable features of the Evoque include a petrol engine, manual gearboxes, front drive, and enhanced refinement features that cost about £50,000. Read on to know the real worth of the varying enhancements included in the latest Evoque.
The Evoque successfully displays how a relevant, successful, yet distinguishable modern day 4x4 can look. Unlike other 4x4s or off-roaders limited by size and capacity, the Evoque is able to offer slimmer rear and side windows along side its wedgier waistline. The forward nature of the design continues in the interior: the dashboard’s new dials feature more spunk and the centre console is positioned downwards, steeply approaching the transmission tunnel. Smaller switchgear that is more neatly designed than the previous Rover models are found along the rotary gearlever dial.
The cabin balances all the necessary design elements, without ever crossing the line of adding too much glamor to the look. Overall quality is not just luxurious in nature but appear durable via the top notch textures, plastics, and leathers that compose the cabin. The Range Rover Evoque’s Prestige Trim sports the classiest interior features, offering not just leather seats for surfaces but also a shape that eases the driver into the right position. Plus the widely adjustable steering wheel allows the Range Rover Evoque owner to get comfortable and find the right angle for their daily driving. Passengers are assured comfort as well in the three-door model that offers enough headroom. Boot space is adequate enough at 550 litres and can be expanded to 1350 litres with the rear seats pushed forward.
The Land Rover’s Terrain Response System enhances the Evoque’s available engines’ performance. This system doesn’t just react to road surfaces but also specify the kind of accelerator movement required to move along. Both the Dynamic and no program selected options are best for road driving. The response remains smooth and clean all throughout.
Similar engines as the previous and/or similar generation models are offered in the latest Evoque. Expect the same 2.2-litre diesel unit as the Freelander but is only offered as a four-wheeler with a 187bhp. The other alternative is the front-wheel drive at 148bhp. A stronger alternative would be the 2.0-litre turbo petrol at 237bhp that’s a 4WD, but only paired with an automatic gearbox.
The Evoque may appear like a powerful Range Rover off roader, but even the company admits this model cannot reach as far as its stronger models. It should be considered that this is the smallest yet most road-focused line in the Range Rover and is also meant to be driven along regular roads. Nonetheless this car is able to reach farther than rivals finding the balance between being an off roader and a 4x4 vehicle.
