What used Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 4x4 will I get for my budget?
Used Evoques start at around £10,000, at the time of writing, but figure on spending more like £13,500 - £14,000 to secure an early car that's covered an average mileage for its age, with a service history, bought either privately or from an independent dealer.
Up your budget to £17,500 pre-facelift 2015 car, or £19,500 - £20,000 for a post facelift Evoque with an average mileage and a full service history. £26,000 will be enough for a year-old Evoque with below-average mileage.

How much does it cost to run a Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 4x4?
Not surprisingly, the diesel-engined cars are the most economical. The 2.0-litre eD4 engine helps the Evoque achieve an official NEDC combined figure of 65.7mpg, while the earlier 2.2 eD4 got 56.5mpg. The punchier 2.0 TD4 180 returned 55.3mpg or 43.5mpg in earlier 2.2 SD4 form. The 2.0-litre Si4 petrol engine initially returned just 32.5mpg, but this was improved in 2014 to 36.2mpg.
The worst offender throughout the life of the Evoque is the 2.0 Si4 petrol. Initially, it put out 199g/km, although this was reduced in 2014 to 181g/km. If you want to keep a lid on emissions, plump for the eD4 which emitted 133g/km in 2.2-litre form, or 113g/km after the new engine was introduced.
As you'd expect, both any model with four-wheel drive will produce more CO2, so an early TD4 has a figure of 149g/km and the SD4 174g/km. The newer engine in the post-2015 TD4 dropped this figure to 125g/km for the manual or 134g/km for the automatic.
Car Tax (VED)
Road tax for all models registered before 1 April 2017 will vary depending upon the emissions the engine produces (see paragraph above for more information). If you're buying one registered after the tax system changed on 1 April 2017, you'll have to pay a yearly flat-rate fee, currently £150 a year, plus an additional surcharge of £325 if your Evoque cost over £40,000 when new. However, this surcharge only applies on the first five occasions that the vehicle is taxed, not including initial registration.

Insurance and servicing costs
Insurance groups for the desirable Evoque range from 28 for the lowest front-wheel-drive diesel to 43 for the high-performance petrol car in top-spec Autobiography trim.
A used service plan is available for the Evoque. This takes the form of a one-off initial payment, which varies depending on engine and trim but currently starts at £625 and covers between two and five services. There are also fixed price servicing options that range from £330 for an interim service every 16,000 miles or one year, while a 32,000 mile major service every two years is £440.
