    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.

    My car

    My friend and colleague kindly lent me her much admired Evoque.I was quite excited at the prospect but after 48 hours happy to hand the keys back. It has a really stylish and nicely crafted interior but it is a really feminine car, with little highlights and accessories. This seems at odds with its 4x4 roots. I live in the country and commute 100 miles a day and this car felt strangely out of place in the country. It’s too manicured. At a practical level the performance was better than I expected and the mid-range acceleration is good. Link this to good sound suppression and it makes a good motorway car. However the fuel consumption is dire. I drove this manual version quite gently for 150 miles of largely motorway cruising and only achieved 35 mpg. The engine stop start facility is silly because after a very short time the facility de-activates because it detects that the battery is going flat. Surely they should have put a larger capacity battery in. Overall it’s a really nice suburban car for a lady but I am happy to have saved £10,000 and drive my slightly more crude but honest and more economical Kia Sportage.
