What alternatives should I consider to a used Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 4x4?
The Evoque covered a lot of ground, price-wise, when it was new, so its rivals range far and wide. Cheaper versions went head to head with the Audi Q3 and BMW X1, while top-spec Evoques were more in line with sporty SUVs such as the Porsche Macan.
The Audi Q3 is refined, in some versions, and comes with a classy interior. However, its steering could be better and it’s not that much fun to drive. Its ride can also be a little unsettled.
The BMW X1 is spacious, practical and has a high quality interior. It also offers fine handling and a great infotainment system. Countered against that, there’s too much road noise and the ride can be firm, too.
The Porsche Macan is very good to drive, with precise steering, an excellent automatic transmission and a strong engine. It’s not very big in the back, though, so those carrying lanky passengers will need to look elsewhere. It’s also expensive to buy, even used, and to run.
