    My car

    I’ve owned my Evoque Prestige for two and a half years now, being one of the first to take delivery in 2011, after having fallen in love with the shape of the LRX Concept and putting down a deposit a year before. Initially I was rather surprised at the Evoques success as I thought there would be quite a small market for relatively small(it's really a 4 door high riding Audi TT alternative)packed with luxury features costing over £40K. As a serial purchaser of German cars I’ve been used to buying what was on the face of it a sensibly priced base car only to find I needed to shell out another £5-£10k on options so it actually felt like a luxury car. Then come trade-in time losing my shirt because those “options” weren’t taking into account. Where this nonsense that German cars are slow depreciators comes from I have absolutely no idea. Thank you Land Rover for recognising this so my gorgeous Prestige Lux came fully loaded with all those items that make a car actually feel like a luxury item and because they are standard they will actually be taken into consideration come resale time – Great, a win-win. I have to say I love this car, it’s quite irrational really. I know it’s just a car but the way it makes me feel when I get in, it always gives me a lift. I call it my Zen space, sumptuous interior, polished wood and Glass roof and that smell of leather. Two years on I still love it both inside and out, its been 100% reliable plus it makes every journey an occasion. Gorgeous.

    My car

    I swapped my BMW 330d 07 yr for an SD4 Evoque prestige lux with the new 9 speed auto in march and the Evoque feels like a massive upgrade in every way. The design is fab from every angle (sorry but the awkward styling styling of the X3 doesn't do it for me) and the luxurious interior has every piece of tech you could wish for in this spec...it even parks itself when asked which is freaky but works well. The engine and 9 speed gearbox work very well and its much more eager than my old bmw despite the smaller engine. It does choose very high gears when it can which means you coast much further unless you slip it into sport mode but its also very quiet. In terms of negatives in the reviews yes the boot isn't big enough for a family with 2 kids and firm ride picks up some minor road imperfections. On the other hand it handles potholes and speedbumps very well and cornering is pretty flat. I hoped for similar mpg to the old car but helped by the unobtrusive stop start and 9 speed its actually a big improvement. In heavy london traffic 27 and mixed london 35. Out of town 40 to 43. The improvement is 7 to 10 mpg everywhere except at a steady french motorway speed without stops where both get around 37 to 40. Service costs £499 for 5 yrs with a pack so v low, For a mix of London and some long distance trips its ideal while having full 4x4 attributes as well its just about perfect, Problems? Slight delay when selecting reverse.. Might be the stop start. A real joy so far.

    My car

    Range Rover Evoque 5 door Auto SD4 Pure Tech (Fiji White)

    Best Features 1. The engine – the SD4 Diesel engine is a true delight. Powerful, quiet and very flexible. It puts the Mercedes 250 CDi to shame.

    2. Six speed Automatic gearbox. This is a delight and the transmission is both fluid and responsive. I wish I had been able to wait for the new 9 speed auto box due out soon.

    3. Design, Looks, styling, leather interior and brushed aluminium trim.

    4. Tech Pack – Satnav; Digital; Radio and the brilliant media sound system.

    Worst Features

    1. The Passenger front seat is non-adjustable (this is just mean & penny pinching and not really acceptable). Anyone shorter than 5ft 6 ins. complains they cannot see out properly. 2. Door Mirrors – these are huge and well styled. The Pure model is non-power folding. The Evoque is a really wide car and I cannot get my car into my double garage without manual folding them in and out each time. This is a real pain and just very annoying on a car costing >£36k. This should be standard on all models for such a wide car– just increase the price! 3. Range Rover have really missed a trick with the door mirrors also with the side repeater trafficator not being visible to the driver (as per the Audi models). 4. The boot light is feeble, inadequate and in completely the wrong (recessed) place. The Mercedes E Class has two boot lights in the rear pillar. These shine to the back of the boot. The boot light

    My car

    Having experienced Mercedes, BMW's and Audis, The Evoque stands held and shoulders above these generic brands.

    The car ticks all the boxes, especially in London, its big inside but small on the outside, making it easy to park.

    The interior is incredible, easily on a par with much more expensive vehicles and again the handling defies logic, being such a tall car, it handles as well as any hot hatch.
