The 2016 Range Rover Evoque features a compelling balance between sportiness and luxury. With tight proportions and compact sizing, the Evoque stands as the perfect Land Rover for urban commutes. However, the compactness doesn’t hinder the comfort and luxury on offer with the Evoque’s cabin.

We Recommend

There’s a good deal of variety when it comes to the 2016 Range Rover Evoque. If you’re considering taking one home, we suggest going for the SE Premium trim. We feel that the SE Premium offers an extremely good balance of price and features. For $45,800, the SE Premium gets you an exquisite leather-wrapped cabin, along with 12-way power adjustable seats. There’s also a good deal of tech features on offer, which makes this trim a compelling deal. 

Engine and Performance
6.6/10

The 2016 Range Rover Evoque is offered with a 2.0L turbocharged Inline-4 engine, which is capable of making 240 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. The Evoque’s engine comes mated to a clever 9-Speed Automatic gearbox, which does a fantastic job of shuffling power though the powertrain. Additionally, the 2016 model year Range Rover Evoque is offered in AWD, which makes driving it easy. 

While the engine itself doesn’t feel particularly powerful, there’s plenty of grunt for powerful highway cruising and comfortable overtaking. Driving in the city feels like a breeze, and the AWD system makes handling comfortable. The 2016 Range Rover Evoque sprints from 0 to 60 MPH in 7.1 seconds, which is sufficiently quick for a vehicle of its size. Additionally, the 2016 model year Evoque also manages to hit top speeds of up to 135 miles per hour, which makes it a great choice for highway crunching.

Comparing the competition, the 2016 Range Rover Evoque comes out as the clear winner in terms of raw horsepower figure. Both the BMW X1 and the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 offer more torque than the Evoque, albeit by a small margin. Despite lower power, the 2016 model year BMW X1 showcases the best 0 to 60 launch time, while the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 follows closely. Quarter-mile times of all three cars stand fairly close, with the Range Rover Evoque being the quickest in this front. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 offers the highest top speed among the competition, going as fast as 145 MPH.

Fuel Economy
6.0/10

The 2016 Range Rover Evoque exhibits pretty decent performance merit, but lags behind in the fuel efficiency department. The 2016 model year Range Rover Evoque only manages to return 21 MPG in the city, and 29 MPG on highways. The result is a combined MPG rating of 24, which is lower than what is being offered with the competition. However, to compensate for the low fuel economy, the Evoque comes with a large 18.5-gallon fuel tank, which helps in delivering respectable driving range.

Comparing the competition, the 2016 Range Rover Evoque fares the worst in terms of fuel economy. On the other end of the spectrum, the 2016 model year Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 manages to return a steady 24 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway, which is significantly higher than that of the Range Rover Evoque. 

Interior
7.0/10

The 2016 Range Rover Evoque offers an extremely classy and well-appointed cabin. There’s a generous use of leather, especially on the higher trims. You get 12-way power adjustable seats as standard, while you also have the option for upgrading to 14-way power seats, with memory function, ventilation, and premium leather finish. 

You also have the option of customizing the Evoque cabin to a great extent, all the way from choosing the color of your seats and dash, to picking the finish of your dash. The 2016 Range Rover offers a fair bit of space inside the cabin, with up to 5 passengers being comfortably seated. There’s dual-zone climate control on offer, along with additional features such as a panoramic moonroof, ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel.

Comparing the competition, the 2016 BMW X1 offers the most interior space. At the front, the Range Rover Evoque, however, offers the most legroom. At the back, the BMW X1 remains the roomiest, with the Evoque following closely behind. In terms of cabin room, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA falls on the disappointing side, offering significantly lower passenger space than both of its competitors. Some key interior features offered with the 2016 Range Rover Evoque include:

  • Dual-Zone Climate Control. 
  • Leather Upholstery. 
  • 12-way/14-way Power Seats.

You also get an in-built navigation system, which is decent. Sound is channelled via a compelling 12-speaker sound system, and Bluetooth Audio Streaming makes playing your favorite playlists easy. You also have the option for upgrading to a 17-speaker Meridian sound system, which takes music to a whole new level. In addition, Land Rover also offers you Ambient Lighting with your Evoque, which makes night-time driving extremely enjoyable.

  • 8.0-inch Infotainment Screen.

Exterior
8.0/10

The 2016 Range Rover Evoque stands as an extremely handsome and well-designed SUV. The Evoque features sculpted, chunky bodywork with elegant aesthetic elements which seem very pleasing to the eye. The Evoque features intricately designed front and rear lights, which flaunt sophisticated LED matrices. 

The side profile of the Evoque is very unique, and genuinely no other vehicle in this segment matches the elegance and artsy aesthetic of the Evoque till date. Land Rover offers 18-inch alloys with the Evoque, which can be upgraded to 19-inch wheels with fancy finishes depending on your taste.

Among the competition, the Range Rover Evoque actually comes off as the heaviest vehicle in the lot, thanks to the exquisitely appointed cabin, and rather traditional construction. The BMW X1 measures the longest in the competition, while the Range Rover Evoque measures the widest. The Evoque also ends up as the tallest in the lot, while also featuring the greatest ground clearance. The Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 offers the longest wheelbase. Some highlight exterior features offered with the 2016 Range Rover Evoque include:

  • Chrome Grille Surround. 
  • Signature LED Headlights. 
  • Evoque Badging. 
  • 18-inch Alloy Wheels.
  • Optional Privacy Glass. 
  • Illuminated Tread Plates.

Safety
8.5/10

The 2016 Range Rover Evoque is a safe vehicle for daily commutes. The Evoque is based on an entirely new platform employed by Land Rover, which is rigid and ensures high structural integrity. This means that the Evoque can take impacts without deforming or transferring shocks to the occupants. Additionally, the 2016 Range Rover Evoque comes with a wide range of active and passive safety features, which make the compact SUV extremely safe for frequent use. Some key safety features offered with the 2016 Range Rover Evoque include:

  • ESP and ABS. 
  • Traction Control. 
  • Hill Descent Control.
  • Dual-Stage Airbags. 
  • Hill Start Assist.
  • Side Curtain Airbags. 
  • Lane Keeping Assist. 
  • LED Headlights with DRLs.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Monitor. 
Final Verdict

The 2016 Range Rover Evoque stands as a classier alternative to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLA and the BMW X1. While the Evoque promises great ride quality, cabin comfort and isolation, it misses out on performance, practicality and reliability. Additionally, the higher starting price of the 2016 model year Evoque can actually make it a difficult sell. However, if you’re not concerned about the practicality or the higher price, the 2016 Range Rover should be an excellent choice.

Pros - Design, Cabin, All wheel drive.

Cons - Rear visibility.

Precise British Engineering. I love the way my Range Rover Evoque looks. To me, it looks better than a Range Rover Sport. Coming to the interior, besides the comfy seats, I love the rotating gear knob and climate control buttons. It looks solid and well appointed. It gives me the feeling of sitting inside something premium. Moreover, the all wheel drive system is spot on. I have taken it for a fe...

Pros - Plush cabin, Easy to drive, Power

Cons - Nothing so far.

Engine has a lot of grunt. I own a 2016 Evoque. It is an amazing SUV in every aspect. The interior is practical yet plush and well appointed. The leather upholstery is so soft and cushiony. The center rotating gear knob feels solid and premium to use. It is also easy to drive around the city due to its compact size.

Unreliable and Waste of money.

Pros - Elegant looking design and nothing else.

Cons - False alerts, parts are of poor quality.

Waste of money. The '16 Range Rover Evoque is such an elegant SUV that I can't drive it. I'm not exaggerating, I literally can't drive it without a false check engine light or something else. I've taken it to both the local garage as well as the dealership. Dealer says everything is fine but the garage says I'll have to replace the entire electronic system because it's a wreck. Yes it's quite exp...
