Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
The Evoque is quite a substantial car, so you wouldn’t expect to struggle to fit in the front, and, sure enough, you won’t – unless you’re exceptionally tall.
The front seats slide a long way back on their runners, and you’d have to be close to seven feet tall to feel your hair brushing the ceiling, even if you opt for a panoramic glass sunroof (a feature that often severely restricts head room).
You can ignore the official boot capacity in litres because Land Rover measures boot space in a different way to most other manufacturers. There's certainly enough space in the Evoque's boot for a buggy or, if you're a golfer, a set of clubs.
We managed to squeeze only five carry-on suitcases below the parcel shelf, compared with seven in the XC40 and eight in the X1. The plug-in hybrid P300e has the same boot capacity as non-PHEV Evoques.
The 40/20/40 split rear seats fold down to leave an almost completely flat extended load bay for when you need to cart around more clobber.
