Introduction

What Car? says...

The original Range Rover Evoque changed Land Rover forever. Prior to its watershed launch, the British brand's SUVs were handsome enough, but in quite a functional, boxy sort of way. After it, though, Land Rover was as much about fashion and glamour as it was off-roading and country estates. 

It’s hardly surprising, then, that the designers of this second-generation model opted to take an evolutionary approach – it would have been daft not to, given the huge popularity of the original Evoque.

FAQs

  • No, not by modern car standards. In our 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey the Range Rover Evoque came third from bottom in the family SUV table, with the previous-generation (2011-2019) Evoque in last place. It’s safe to say that reliability is not a Land Rover strength: the manufacturer finished 29th out of 30 brands in the car makers section of the survey. Read more here

  • There is no electric car version of the Range Rover Evoque but there is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model, called the P300e – and it also happens to be our favourite version. The P300e combines a petrol engine with an electric motor and battery, allowing you to do shorter journeys on electric power alone. It has an official electric-only range of 34 miles, which is longer than the rival BMW X1 and Volvo XC40. Read more here

  • The plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version, the P300e, is our pick of the Range Rover Evoque engine range. It has the best performance, and as long as you can charge it up regularly, will be far more efficient than other versions. Our favourite trim is S, because although it’s one of the cheaper options, it includes lots of luxuries, including heated 12-way electrically adjustable front seats, leather upholstery and rear animated directional indicators.

  • The Range Rover Evoque’s R-Dynamic SE trim is in the middle of the model price range, while the R-Dynamic HSE version is at the top (and costs a lot more). Both versions get a powered tailgate, memory seats, automatic high-beam assist and blind-spot monitoring. R-Dynamic HSE adds adaptive cruise control, keyless entry, 14-way electrically adjustable seats and a heated steering wheel to the mix. Read more here

  • The Range Rover Evoque should be a very safe car, having scored the maximum five-star rating in its Euro NCAP test. It has plenty of safety technology to prevent collisions, including automatic emergency braking (AEB), lane-keeping assistance and a system that lets the driver know when they are showing signs of tiredness. Read more here

  • The Range Rover Evoque has quite a small boot by family SUV standards, and our road testers managed to fit only five carry-on suitcases into it, compared with eight in the BMW X1. The Evoque’s rear seats do fold down in a versatile 40/20/40 arrangement, though. Read more here
