Best featureI have been in love with the Evoque’s looks from the moment I first laid my eyes on it. For me, this is the most beautiful car in the world. There are two versions, coupe and four-door. Although the four-door is far more practical, I have no apparent need for it, so I opted for the coupe and I have loved it ever since. I always read up on car concepts and the Evoque looks more like a concept than a real road car. There is no other car on the road that looks like it. None. It is a joy to watch how people turn heads as I drive by. The engine I have is a 2.0l petrol with 240 hp. It reaches well over 200 km/h and comes to 100 km/h in just 8 seconds. The fuel consumption is also astonishing. In the city it is about 11, or 12l/100km, on the highway the sixth gear drags it down to about 6l/100km and the combined figure is between 8 and 9l/100km. The interior is similarly outstanding by my standards. The seats are wonderfully comfortable and supportive in corners. The brushed aluminum accents make the interior seem very elegant. The steering wheel is massive with multifunctional buttons at hand at any moment. Slightly tilted middle console is an amazing addition which brought me to question why all cars don’t have it. Big side mirrors are astounding. You will see a lot more than you actually need and you will always know what is going on on your sides. The Range Rover Evoque is a fantastically designed car in every respect. It is a fashion statement as much as it is a mode of transport and I have never regretted buying it.
I bought the Range Rover Evoque because I loved the looks, but there are several gripes I should mention.
First of all, the motor that moves the front seats so that you can access the rear ones is incredibly slow. Personally, I would prefer to have manual control of this, than such a slow setup. On the other hand, there is a four-door version, so if you need rear seats often, go for that one. The car is similarly beautiful even with two doors more.
Even though the interior materials seem very expensive, I have experienced some creaks from door and dashboard at times. This is not very common, but I feel it shouldn’t happen at all.
Even though the Evoque has a lot of power, it is not very sporty when it comes to handling.
Moreover, driving on the 20” wheels made the ride very firm. They do look great, but you should go for 18”, which I have switched to. The Evoque still looks great and it is a lot more comfortable.
Small window at the back is a problem for reversing. Large side mirrors help with this a lot, but to really know what is going on in places the side windows don’t reach, you will need a rear camera, which is available as an additional feature.
