The Range Rover Evoque made a splash as soon as it was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2010. The main reason for this was that its design made all the other SUV's look outdated. Suddenly, the brand became just as much about fashion and glamour as it was about old money and off-roading. So how do you go about replacing such a style icon? The key is by being very sympathetic to the original design. The 2020 Evoque also improves on the model it replaces, thanks to new mild-hybrid engines, more interior space and a more sophisticated infotainment system.
Even though it looks suspiciously like the 2019 model, the 2020 Evoque is indeed a ground-up redesign. It’s available as an SUV and a convertible and either way, it has a high-end cabin with lots of high-tech safety features, standard all-wheel drive, and solid handling. Two different 4-cylinder powertrains are offered - both turbocharged - including one that uses a 48-volt hybrid system to generate extra oomph.
The Evoque is one of the best off-roaders in the class, but check out rivals if you plan to stick to paved roads. Many competitors such as the BMW X1 and the Volvo XC40 offer more boot space and better fuel economy estimates due to the Evoque's fashion-before-comfort ethos. If making a statement, driving enjoyment or having a comfortable off-roader is important to you, consider buying the Evoque.
