All Range Rover Evoques come with an 8.0in colour touchscreen, and on SE and SE Tech models the straightforward home screen makes it easy to jump between key functions. However, beyond the core home menu, some tasks, such as finding a new radio station or inputting a new destination, can be quite convoluted, and many of the icons are small, making it tricky to select precisely when you’re driving.
Fortunately, the graphics are clear and all models get Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, a digital radio, a USB input that gives full control of your MP3 player or iPhone through the car’s system, and a multi-function steering wheel. SE and SE Tech models both have an effective eight-speaker sound system, while the higher trims add more speakers and more powerful amplifiers.
Oddly, with the higher trims (HSE and above) you get entirely different software that makes the touchscreen slower to respond and harder to use. However, as compensation, you do get a built-in hard disk to store your music on, 'say what you see' voice control and, with HSE Dynamic Lux and Autobiography trims, a digital TV.
