2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Ratings & Reliability
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, and then the power comes on too abruptly. The ride is overly 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 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. Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane keeping assist are standard; other advanced safety features are optional.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Ratings & Reliability
Overall, the Evoque is more about style than function. It offers 2-door convertible and 4-door versions. The standard nine-speed automatic was neither smooth nor responsive in the similar Discovery Sport we tested. The Evoque's ride is choppy, and noise levels are elevated. Interior room and visibility are sacrificed for the striking silhouette. Controls are a bit quirky. Handling is sprightly but becomes disconcerting at the limits. The Evoque's Terrain Response system facilitates moderate off-road capability. Recent updates include optional lane keeping assist, the addition of the InControl infotainment system, and new seats. A more powerful 286-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine is available. A redesigned Evoque just went on sale.

The compact Evoque is based on the LR2 and offered in two- and four-door versions. Overall, the Evoque is more about style than functionality. Interior room and visibility are sacrificed for the striking silhouette. Its Ford-supplied 240-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is mated to a six-speed automatic, (nine-speed from 2014) and returned 21 mpg overall in our tests. Acceleration and fuel economy are commendable, but the ride is choppy and noise levels are elevated. Controls are a bit quirky, which is typical of Land Rover. Routine handling is quite agile, but can become disconcerting at the limits. The Evoque's Terrain Response system facilitates moderate off-road capability, which is uncommon in this class.
