2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Reliability - Consumer Reports

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Don’t be sucked in by the Evoque’s attractive styling, flashy interior, and Land Rover brand cachet. This overpriced luxury SUV has a disappointing drivetrain, a rough and bumpy ride, and confounding controls. By the time our testing was complete, we came to the conclusion that the redesigned Evoque is the least talented luxury compact SUV, yet the most expensive.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
