    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!

    My car

    I have had the Evoque for five months now and covered just over 3000 miles. Most of the driving has been in the city but all of it has been good. I was new to the brand having driven various BMW's , Audi's and the odd Lexus in the past. The service at Range Rover was excellent, way better than the appalling Audi garage in Glasgow. The car is excellent to drive on the school to office run everyday. The driving position is excellent, the engine is a good size for the car, test drove a quashqai and it nearly died on a hill near our house, all the kit in the car works just as it should is all in easy reach. Only had one long run to Aberdeen since I got the car. In appalling driving conditions with unbelievable amounts of surface water it handled it effortlessly. All round it's a fantastic car, one minor niggle, when its below freezing the panoramic roof squeaks, that's it, nothing else to worry about.

    My car

    I have had the car for over six months, agree with everythingwhcih has been said, the only thing to add is that I have had a noise vibration coming off the consol and a an on and off Diesel smell coming inside the cabin, took it back to the dealer and was told that they could do much until the smell gets worse, wonder whether I have been unlucky or it is a common problem out there but people are putting up with it. the Dealer did sya that they have that reproted before but were vary vague about the number number and the models of the car!!
