The Evoque is more about style than function.
Sure, it wears the prestigious Range Rover logo, but the SUV is frustrating on several levels.
There is a pronounced initial delay when accelerating from a rolling stop, then the power comes on too abruptly.
The ride is too stiff, fuel economy is among the worst in its class, and outward visibility is hampered.
The dual-screen infotainment system echoes other Land Rover models.
We find it to be convoluted and rather slow to respond to commands.
On the plus side, handling is quite nimble, the front seats are comfortable, and fit and finish is impressive.
FCW and AEB with pedestrian detection are standard.
BSW and rear cross traffic warning are standard on all except the base trim.
