One of the most convincing reasons to buy a Range Rover Evoque is how well it’s likely to hold on to its value. Our depreciation experts expect it to be worth more than any of its rivals – including the Audi Q3 and Volvo XC40 – at three years old.
For private buyers, that’s especially sweet when you consider that the entry-level Evoque’s price tag is somewhere in the middle of its key rivals, including the BMW X1 and the XC40. PCP finance rates are often competitive, helping to offset the Evoque’s relatively poor fuel economy (the petrols are especially thirsty).
S trim gets 18in alloys, along with heated 12-way electrically adjustable front seats, leather upholstery and rear animated directional indicators. This trim is our pick for the best value-to-toys ratio.
R-Dynamic S is the same as S, but gets different 18in alloys. R-Dynamic SE trim is worth considering – it adds an electric tailgate, automatic high-beam assist for the headlights and blind-spot assist. Autobiography is luxurious but very expensive.
This isn’t usually an area of strength for Land Rover. Indeed, the brand finished 29th out of the 30 manufacturers in our 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey (Fiat came bottom). Audi, BMW and Volvo finished 18th, 13th and 19th respectively.
