Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
The Range Rover 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 for a buggy or, if you're a golfer, a set of clubs. However, we managed to squeeze only five carry-on suitcases below the parcel shelf, compared with seven in the Volvo XC40 and eight in the BMW X1. Boot space for the P300e remains the same as it is for the non-plug-in hybrid models.
The 40/20/40 split rear seats fold down to leave an almost completely flat extended load bay to help when you need to cart around more clobber.
