Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

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.

Reliability

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. 

Overview

It may well be the Range Rover 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 reasonably practical by class standards. Slow depreciation means you should get a lot of that investment back when you sell – and monthly PCP finance costs are surprisingly competitive. The icing on the cake is a plug-in version that offers seriously cheap company car costs.

  • Great driving position
  • Well-equipped
  • Slow depreciation
  • Limited boot space
  • So-so fuel economy and emissions
  • Land Rover’s reliability record
