Used test: BMW 3 Series Touring vs Range Rover Evoque verdict

With a badge as stylish as Kim K, the Range Rover Evoque is a compelling buy, especially used. But can it better a similarly priced BMW 3 Series Touring?...

Used test: BMW 3 Series Touring vs Range Rover Evoque

Our verdict

If we're talking luxury, the Range Rover Evoque, for the most part, has top trumps. It has a more comfortable ride, a more commanding driving position and a slightly plusher interior. 

However, the BMW 3 Series Touring remains an impressively premium product, and crucially it surpasses the Evoque in a few important areas, namely practicality and fuel economy. And don't even get us started on the driving experience – it's as sharp to drive as estate cars come, and much more fun than the Evoque. Forget the Hollywood glitz, the 3 Series Touring is our winner.
