It might well be the Evoque’s looks that piqued your interest, but it’s a fine car on more objective levels, too. It’s good to drive, really posh inside and is even fairly practical by class standards. It’s one of the more expensive cars in the class, but slow depreciation means you should get a lot of that investment back when you sell – and monthly PCP finance costs are also surprisingly competitive.get the best price
Trim: R-Dynamic S
R-Dynamic adds a sportier look inside and out to the regular S trim.
Engine: 2.0 D180
The 178bhp D180 comes as standard with four-wheel drive and is our favourite; it's not as quick as an XC40 D4 but feels more than flexible enough in the mid range, has the poke for reasonably crisp overtaking and it'll happily sit all day long at 70mph on the motorway. It's pretty refined, too, though not great for emissions or fuel consumption.
