New Range Rover Evoque

Tackle all terrains with confidence in the new Range Rover Evoque. Available in coupé and five-door body styles with the choice of four and five different trim options respectively, the Evoque offers endless possibilities.

Exterior design

The award-winning Evoque design is distinctly Range Rover, with a bold athletic profile, harsh contours and striking touches. The entry-level Evoque five-door SE trim features 18-inch alloy wheels and halogen headlights as standard, while higher grades add sophisticated features such as adaptive LED headlights, panoramic roof with power blind and unique 20-inch alloy wheels. The HSE Dynamic Lux and Autobiography trims add a Gesture Tailgate, which opens and closes with a simple kick gesture under the rear of the car once the smart key is detected. Choose from a variety of paint options made using the latest in pigment technology, from rich glosses to radiant metallics – all to suit your unique tastes.

Interior design

Settle into beautifully soft-grained leather seats, offered as standard on all Evoque trims. A four-way manually-adjustable steering column is wrapped in Oxford leather, sat among satin-brushed aluminium horizontal and centre console finishers. Push-button start and Land Rover InControl Protect technology are also offered as standard. The SE Tech trim adds automatic climate control and InControl Touch satellite navigation for comfortable journeys made easy. Opt for the Evoque Autobiography for a complete Oxford leather interior and sophisticated InControl Touch Pro infotainment system with eight-inch colour touchscreen. A functional space, the Evoque is cleverly configured to suit your requirements. Load a healthy 575 litres into the boot with the rear seats up, or 1,445 litres when folded.

​Performance 

A number of engine options are available depending on the selected trim level. A 2.0-litre 178bhp TD4 Ingenium diesel is available across the range in either a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission, except on the range-topping Autobiography which is only available with the automatic gearbox. A lower-powered 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel with six-speed manual is available on the entry-level SE and SE Tech trim, which is powerful enough for most drivers. Hitting 60mph from standstill in around 10.6 seconds, this unit also delivers impressive fuel economy at 65.7mpg combined and CO² emissions less than 113g/km. A powerful 237bhp 2.0-litre Si4 turbocharged petrol with nine-speed automatic transmission is available on the HSE Dynamic and Dynamic Lux trim. This formidable unit uses 340Nm of torque to race from 0-60mph in 7.1 seconds and achieves a maximum speed of 135mph. Choose from 2WD on the entry-level trims or 4WD units on higher grades. Intelligent start/stop is offered as standard, improving fuel consumption between five percent and seven percent. 

Technology and safety

A five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP supports the Evoque’s capability both on and off-road. Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a safe and steady speed on motorway journeys, while adaptive dynamics and Torque Vectoring ensure optimum balance between ride, control and smooth cornering. Land Rover’s patented Terrain Response system, available on all 4WD models, and All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) help to maintain a steady speed and ideal traction on off-road drives. A Blind Spot Monitor and traffic sign recognition are other active safety features ensuring secure journeys. Bluetooth® connectivity with audio streaming is offered as standard on all trim levels, so you can make and receive calls safely on the move.

First Drive: Range Rover Evoque ​

​What's is it?

The Evoque first arrived on the scene in 2011 and provided a classic example of ‘Why didn’t they think of this earlier?’ The downsized Rangie came with much of the kudos and presence (thank you Mrs V. Beckham) of the full-size version but with a smaller price tag, fuel bill and parking space requirements.

What's new?

Several years on and it’s on the receiving end of some notable enhancements. Outside there’s mild tweaks to keep it fresh but more importantly it gains the latest Ingenium diesel engine already keeping fuel bills low in the Discovery Sport. There’s also a revised suspension set up, some new off-road gadgets and updates to the cabin too.

What's under the bonnet?

One of Land Rover's latest Ingenium diesel engines sits under the Evoque's bonnet, where it produces a healthy 173bhp, but is capable of returning over 40mpg on the combined cycle. Here, it's driven to all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic gearbox.

What's it like to drive?

The most important change to the Evoque’s driving behaviour comes down to the new engine provision. The Ingenium diesel unit has already proven itself elsewhere, and mated to the nine-speed automatic gearbox it’s a willing companion in high output 180PS form. Although nine forward ratios might seem like a lot, in truth the Evoque switches between them smoothly to make the most of the generous torque on offer to give pleasingly fuss-free progress. Push harder and the Ingenium unit is a little more vocal but the relaxed cabin ambience isn’t hurt.

Better still is the way the Evoque effortlessly blends a comfortable ride with responsive driving dynamics. Most of the time you simply enjoy the way road imperfections are soaked up without fuss, especially impressive when it’s wearing large alloy wheels. Conversely on those relative rare occasions when you need to hurry along a challenging B-road the Evoque responds with much more alacrity and accuracy than it has any right to. It’s still a relatively tall car and the steering is geared for comfort rather than razor responses but fun it most certainly is.

How does it look?

So popular is the Evoque – it accounts for one in every three Land Rovers sold – that it’s easy to forget just how radical it looked when it first arrived on the scene. Familiarity hasn’t hurt its appeal, but the updates are welcome. The new LED headlights look very smart, while the restyled front bumper freshens up the face and ties it in more closely with its sibling products. There’s additional colour options and more alloy wheel designs to choose from too.

Popularity hasn’t hurt its image either. There’s no denying it; the Evoque is a bit posh and that’s exactly why you’d be happy to be seen stepping in or out of one. For a relatively small car it packs a lot of cred.

What's it like inside?

There are more practical models in the Land Rover/Range Rover line up, but that’s not to say the Evoque can’t handle family duties. Front seat occupants sit nice and high and have plenty of space to stash odds and ends, while welcome comforts such as ventilated and massage seats are now on the options list. If you’re using the rear on a regular basis the five-door version makes a lot more sense, and it’s less generous than the front thanks to the sloping roof but this isn’t an issue unless you’re approaching six foot tall.

What's the spec like?

The mechanical improvements are matched by enhancements to the specification. All Evoques now get the latest InControl Touch infotainment system, upgraded materials on the door trims and new features such as the ATP off-roading system.

Verdict

The updated Evoque retains its broad appeal and will no doubt continue to be popular with a broad spectrum of buyers. Fashion-conscious young people and older folks who want something with style and comfort will both enjoy the smart looks inside and out, and it is one of the few design-heavy cars that appeals to both men and women. In five-door form it also suits smaller families and even tweedy farmers will find it has more off-road ability than they could ever need.
