Detailed Review

The Range Rover Evoque, the baby SUV of the range has been a runaway hit since the very beginning. It defies the conventional SUV design and goes on to show that if you pack style, luxury and comfort in a small lucrative package, it is going to work like it was to meant to succeed.

The Evoque is truly British at heart and features a host of creature comforts while still maintaining its sporty character with a powerful engine under the bonnet. The baby range rover has been all the rage in States and aims to build further with its latest iteration.

The 2017 Range Rover Evoque arrives with a bevy of mild upgrades over the outgoing model. The car now features cosmetic exterior facelifts and a posher cabin to further enhance its reach in the segment.

We Recommend

The Evoque menu is filled with a multitude of standard and optional features shared amongst the 6 trim levels. Higher the options harder the choice, however, the base SE trim is itself a solid deal. You get a few standard features, but a lot of optional ones to pick and customize your Evoque. 

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Engine

6.9/10

While it lacks the low-range gearing of its bigger brothers, it's definitely more capable than you might expect for something as stylish as this. Around town the Evoque's firm suspension and sharp steering make it feel like a sports sedan, but it also means the ride's on the stiff side- KBB

Engine and Transmission 

The engine that does duty on the 2017 Range Rover Evoque is a 2L 4 cylinder inline turbo charged motor paired to a 9 speed automatic gearbox. The engine is good for producing 240 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. The engine is rev happy and produces more than enough power to make the car feel sporty.

The Range Rover Evoque is the most expensive and most powerful vehicle in the segment. The only car that comes close to it in terms of power is the Lexus NX200t at 235 hp.

Acceleration

The Range Rover Evoque is a small and sporty SUV and it reaches 0-60 mph in an impressive 6.2 seconds and goes on to complete the quarter mile in 15.8 seconds. The car pulls up beautifully composed from a standstill but the power dies down around the rev limit.

The Range Rover Evoque is the fastest accelerating vehicle in the segment. A special mention to the BMW X1 which is the only 1/10th of a second slower than the Evoque.

Ride and Handling

The Range Rover Evoque is a mini SUV that handled more along the lines of a hot hatch. The suspension stiffens up appropriately around the corners yet remain soft and compliant on uneven surfaces. There also a host of electronic aids that help the car tackle off road terrains with relative ease.

Braking

The 2017 Range Rover Evoque features a set of 11.8-inch rotors in the front and 11.9 inches in the rear. The brakes allow the mini SUV to stop from 60 mph in under 117 feet. The brakes are not overly stingy and allow the car to remain surprisingly still even braking hard.

The BMW X1 with its biggest set of brakes in the segment bags the top accolades by stopping in under 112 feet when braking from 60 mph.

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Fuel Economy

6.8/10

Mini SUVs such as the Range Rover Evoque are notorious from returning below par fuel economy and baby Rangie is no exception. It returns a sad 24 mpg combined and that is when you drive it rather conservatively.

MPG (city) 21 22 22 24
MPG (highway) 29 27 31 33
MPG (combined) 24 24 25 27

No rivals in the segment return a decent fuel economy. However, the Mercedes Benz GLA is the closest to a decent number at 27 mpg combined.

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Interior

8.0/10

The Evoque certainly looks like a Land Rover inside. There are high-quality materials throughout, and the overall design is stylish and appealing- Cars.usnews

Seating and Comfort

The Range Rover Evoque features a beautifully sculpted interior that allows comfortable seating for up to 5 occupants. The front seats are probably one of the best in business allowing even the tallest passengers to sit comfortably. The rear seats, however, get a little cramped especially due to the sloping roofline.

The Range Rover Evoque is the most spacious car in the front side of the cabin while the BMW X1 remains the king in term of back seat comfort.

Infotainment

The Range Rover Evoque features a dash-mounted 8-inch infotainment screen that is rather grand to look at. The MMI is fairly decent to use but can a little slow especially when compared to rivals system. The car also features InApps control suite that allows the users to connect their smartphones and use the apps directly from the car.

Cargo Capacity

The official numbers for the cargo capacity of the Evoque are yet to out but one can expect the boot to be compromised in size. Boot size is not exactly a strong point of the Evoque but then, it wasn\u2019t what the vehicle was meant to do anyway.

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Exterior

8.5/10

Aggressive and funky, the 2017 Evoque boasts big wheels and tires, a tall and blunt nose, and stubby overhangs. But it's all very Land Rover: The front end couldn't be anything else and the sloping clamshell roof lends distinctive individuality- KBB

Dimension and Weight

The Range Rover Evoque is a stylish and well executed mini SUV. The overall dimension and each line and cut on the exterior look like they were made to go on the car. The Evoque might be mini but it still weighs a substantial 4059 lbs.

The Range Rover Evoque is the heaviest car in the segment with the Lexus NX200t a close second at 4050 lbs.

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Competition

Lexus NX200t vs Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

The Lexus NX200t is a premium crossover Suv from Lexus. It features a curvy and space age design and potent engine setup on paper. Even when it comes to features, the Lexus is in a league of its own with a lot of advanced techs loaded on the car.

However, the car suffers from too many gimmicks, low boot space and a lackluster performance. All of this makes the Range Rover Evoque a better offer.

BMW X1 vs Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

The BMW X1 might be a mini SUV but it follows in the foot stepf of its bigger sibilings. The car offers a no fuss simple design both outside and inside. The car offers a simple yet utilitarian approach. It also has the biggest boot amongst all its rivals.

The BMW X1 is the most hatchback like SUV in the segment and just lacks the pizzaz of the Range Rover Evoque. If you want a stylish SUV that can also handle a bit of off roading, the range is still a better bet.

Mercedes Benz GLA 250 vs Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Just like the BMW X1, the Mercedes Benz GLA offers a very low key and less intimidating design. However, the interior and the overall luxury of the car is unparalleled even in more premium cars.

But, the car is still not as good looking as the Evoque and no even as utilitarian as others in the segment. Therefore, the Range Rover Evoque is the still a better bet.

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Final Verdict

The Range Rover Evoque has been a steady seller in the segment for JLR. This signifies a change in the SUV trend. People nowadays want everything in a small conspicuous package which is what the baby rangie offers. It a pleasant to look at, drives like a much smaller hot hatch and can even take a bit of off roading. The Range Rover Evoque looks destined to succeed in a niche market that it has carved for itself.
