What should I look for in a used Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 4x4?
Although most people use their Range Rover Evoque for school runs and commuting, some might have taken theirs off road; it is a Land Rover, after all. So, have a look underneath for evidence of off-road damage such as dented panels, caked-on mud or broken bits of plastic.
Many will be available for sale through the Land Rover Approved Used scheme and should still look like new. Nevertheless, you ought to carry out the obvious checks for dents, scratches and kerb damage. Make sure the infotainment system works and has been updated to the latest software (the Pivi system allows over-the-air updates, so there shouldn't be any need to visit the dealer to complete this). Also inspect seats and carpeting for scuffs and stains.
