Overall, the Evoque compact SUV is more about style than functionality. It's based on the LR2 and comes in two- and four-door versions. We tested the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder, mated to a six-speed automatic, and got 21 mpg overall. A new nine-speed automatic is standard. Acceleration and fuel economy are commendable, but the ride is choppy, and noise levels are elevated. Interior room and visibility are sacrificed for the striking silhouette. Controls are a bit quirky. Routine handling is quite agile but becomes disconcerting at the limits. The Evoque's Terrain Response system facilitates moderate off-road capability, uncommon in this class.
