    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.

    My car

    My wife took delivery of her new Evoque just two weeks ago and I've taken the opportunity to drive it on a few occasions. The car is surprisingly nimble given that it looks so solid. The looks are not to everyone's tastes and I thought that the car would feel very claustrophobic given the high waistline. I was pleasantly surprised that it doesn't feel like that at all. There is plenty of light from the optional panoramic glass roof but even without this I don't think that the front seats would feel bad at all. There is a lot of room in the back although this is is at the expense of a tiny boot. With the optional dog guard that we had fitted (stupidly expensive by the way) it is impossible to fit the parcel shelf and we are wishing we'd opted for the tinted rear glass now! Fuel consumption is very disappointing and I'm wondering who or how they got to the numbers quoted in the tech specs. My wife could get over 40 mpg out of my diesel Cayenne but struggles to get over 30 in this much smaller engined car. The very worst bit of the car is the whole nab/phone/music interface. It's truly horrible. The screen has been really poorly designed, it's cluttered hard to read at a glance and frankly needs a lot of work. By comparison the one in my Porsche is absolutely fantastic, intuitive, clear, easy to read/use - Land Rover really needs to look at other systems and try again. If they're working on a face-lift I suggest they leave the car alone and invest all of their time on this!
