2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Features

As expected with a modern Range Rover, the Evoque offers plenty of luxury right from the base SE trim, with features like automatic wipers, keyless ignition, dual-zone climate control, a capable infotainment system, power-adjustable front seats with leather upholstery, and more. The Premium model ramps up the luxury with a panoramic glass roof, xenon headlights, keyless entry, and a hands-free tailgate. Landmark trim is SE Premium’s trim upgraded version which has almost the same features but is focused on interior and exterior styling which sets it apart. The Landmark model adds a lot of design improvements like bigger 19-inch wheels, a body kit, updated body panels, and some new color options. 

While the HSE model reverts back to the standard styling, it adds a lot more features like automatic high-beam headlights, heated front seats, an upgraded 10.2-inch infotainment system, and a suite of active safety features. The HSE dynamic trim has the same features as the HSE trim but makes changes to the interior and exterior appearance with Narvik Black hood vents and grille, perforated Windsor leather steering wheel, and bright square exhaust finisher. If you’re still not satisfied, splurging for the range-topping Autobiography trim adds automated parking, massive 20-inch alloys, adaptive headlights, heated rear seats, and more. Autobiography trim costs $65,600 with a power output of 286 hp.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Engine and Performance

8.1/10

The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque gets a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit in two states of tune. The regular models produce a modest 237 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque, while the top-end HSE Dynamic and Autobiography trim can also be bought with a power bump up to 286 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque for $3,000. 

The engine is paired with a slick-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission. Engine response is good and the Evoque sprints forward as soon as you dab the throttle. Even the regular models can reach 60 MPH in just 6.9 seconds, which is impressive considering the off-road equipment weighing it down. Quarter-mile time is also impressive at 15.2 seconds, which drops down to the 14-second category with the high power tune.

Despite having the lowest power figure in the segment, the GLA takes the lead with a lighter chassis, taking just 6.1 seconds to reach 0-60mph, while the XC40 which has the leading horsepower, finishes the 0-60 mph in 6.7 seconds. The Range Rover finished third while the second least powered Audi finished in the last place. 

How well does the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque handle?

While most models in the class lean towards being an urban crawler with light steering and plucky handling, the Evoque takes a different approach. Despite its diminutive size, it packs in all the off-road equipment of its siblings. The suspension is set up on the firmer side and the wheelbase is shorter. But it does allow good handling through the corners but the slow steering is a limiting factor.

Like all Range Rovers, the Evoque also gets a capable all-wheel-drive system with a terrain management system that gets different and, mud, and snow modes. A low-speed cruise control mode also helps the Evoque crawl over tough terrain with ease. The Evoque can also wade deep water, making it impressive both on and off the tarmac compared to the urban-focused rivals in its class.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Braking Performance

Because of its heavier build, the Evoque is equipped with average-sized 12.8-inch rotors at the front and 12.5-inch rotors at the rear. Braking is impressive and the Evoque stops on a dime with good feedback from the pedal. The Evoque is one of the heaviest SUVs in the compact SUV segment, which all play a role in stopping it at an idle distance. Features such as brake assist, stop/start, and automatic emergency braking plays a crucial role in braking performance.

GLA Class is not only agile when it comes to acceleration but it also stops in the least possible distance in the competition. On the other hand. The XC40 requires 15 feet more to come to a complete standstill as compared to the GLA Class. That said, the XC40 has the biggest front brake rotor whereas Range Rover Evoque has the biggest rear brake rotor.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Fuel Economy

7.1/10

With its 2 Liter turbocharged powertrain, the Evoque delivers a fuel economy of 22 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway, while in the higher state of tune, they drop down to 1 MPG. Land Rover has also equipped the Evoque with a massive 18.1-gallon fuel tank, giving it a highway range of over 500 miles.

With a combined rating of 25 MPG, the Evoque trails behind both the Volvo XC40 and Mercedes-Benz GLA Class by 1 MPG. However, it’s still a lot more efficient than the Audi Q3 which returns just 22 MPG. The XC40 and GLA Class, both share the same fuel economy figures but GLA has a slightly bigger fuel tank which results in a better range.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Interior

7.9/10

With its sci-fi pop-up gear knob and high-quality materials, the interiors of the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque look modern and classy. The simple overall design with minimal switchgear and a centrally placed infotainment system indicates excellent ergonomics. The overly gray color palette looks drab and outdated compared to modern competitors after almost a decade into production. The base trim gets Grained leather seats but you can upgrade it to Perforated grained or Windsor leather seats. The cabin has standard dark sport textured aluminum trim while textured aluminum trim is optional.

The front seat has a standard 12-power adjustment, the steering wheel is covered in leather, and comes with an optional heating function. The front seats offer plenty of support and get features like standard memory adjustment and heating on the higher trims, however, the rear seat passengers will feel cramped because of the limited legroom. The small rear windows because of the raised window line also give the cabin a claustrophobic feeling especially at the rear unless you opt for the panoramic glass roof which brings in a lot of light. Trunk space is average at 20.3 cubic feet, which can be expanded to 51 cubic feet by folding the rear seats flat in a 60/40 split configuration.

A large wheelbase of the GLA Class does not provide it a spacious interior as it has the least airy cabin of all. On the other hand, Evoque offers more interior space than the Mercedes-Benz GLA Class, it falls behind both the Audi Q3 and Volvo XC40 in terms of rear seat and cargo space. Some standout interior features include:

  • Heated front and rear seats (optional)
  • Manual tilt and telescopic steering column
  • Heated steering wheel (optional)
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Configurable ambient lighting
  • Keyless entry
  • Perforated leather upholstery

Lower trims also get a premium 10-speaker audio system as standard, which can be switched out for a 17-speaker premium system from Meridian on the range-topping trim. Some standout features include:

  • 8-inch touchscreen

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Exterior

8.5/10

Evoque has a standard front Brunel grille, flared wheel arches, and side vents. The massive wheels along with short overhangs also give the Land Rover Evoque an off-road-ready look. The Hood has a massive bump that is protected by two body lines. On the side profile, Anthracite door claddings and Brunel fender blade can be seen. A Black or grey contrast roof is optional on the base trim which lifts the exotic look of Evoque. 

At the front, halogen headlights are given which can be upgraded to Xenon headlights with LED signature while HSE and higher trim get adaptive LED headlights with LED signature lights. Other than base trim, all other trims have standard fixed panoramic roofs. For even more style, both the Landmark and HSE Dynamic trims get updated styling with a unique body kit, bigger alloy wheels, and a contrast roof with extra color options.

Infrared reflective windshield, the heated rear window is given standard across the trim range while the Heated windshield and heated washer jets are optional. Power fold, heated door mirrors with approach, and puddle lights are given on the base trim while the auto-dimming function is added on the higher trims. 2019 Evoque runs on 18-inch 5 split-spoke ‘Style 506’ alloy wheels which be replaced with 19-inch 10 spoke ‘Style 103’ alloy wheels and unique 20-inch 5 split-spoke ‘Style 527’ alloy wheels are given on the higher trims.

The GLA class is the more compact SUV in the competition but has the least amount of ground clearance which does provide greater stability, however, off-roading is not the best option with it. On the other hand, on the weight scale, Q3 is the most healthy one while in terms of wheelbase XC40 has the lead. Range Rover Evoque has the shortest wheelbase and length in the segment. Some notable exterior features include:

  • 18-inch 5 split-spoke ‘Style 506’ alloy wheels
  • Fog lights (optional)

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Safety

9.0/10

Even after 8 years since launch, the Evoque still gets the same platform and chassis. Unfortunately, the Evoque still hasn’t been tested by either the NHTSA or IIHS. While the base models are very limited in terms of driver assistance features, higher trim levels like the Landmark and HSE can be bought with safety features like a surround-view camera system, automated parking, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control. Intelligent emergency braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, driver condition monitor, and traffic sign recognition, are standard on the range-topping Autobiography trim. Some notable safety features include:

  • Rearview camera
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Blind-spot monitoring (optional)
  • Reverse traffic detection (optional)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (optional)
  • Lane departure warning (optional)
  • Automatic High Beam Assist 

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Competition

8.1/10

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs 2019 Audi Q3

While the Evoque offers better off-road capability and plenty of luxury for the price, its compact dimensions and cramped interiors limit practicality compared to the Q3. The Audi is also a better all-rounder with more storage space, better handling, and excellent build quality. Although Q3 has a slight disadvantage against Evoque in terms of performance, Q3 is still the better pick of two because of the price difference.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs 2019 Volvo XC40

While practicality is limited with the XC40, it does manage to offer a more comfortable and compliant ride with lighter handling to suit urban conditions. XC40 also has a higher fuel economy compared to Evoque. The Volvo XC40 is designed for the tarmac, unlike the Evoque which is also capable off-road, making it a better choice as an SUV.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA Class

While the Mercedes-Benz GLA can be considered as a jacked-up hatchback with rugged styling, it brings a lot to the table at an affordable price compared to the Evoque. The GLA is also more fun to drive thanks to the lighter and capable chassis. The Evoque on the other hand focuses on being more of an SUV than an ordinary luxury crossover with a capable four-wheel-drive system and a long list of features. Luxury is the name of the game in this segment where the Evoque has the edge. 

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Final Verdict

With the Range Rover Evoque, Land Rover has managed to bring all the capabilities and luxury of its bigger models to a compact footprint. It looks handsome and is a capable off-roader. But, as a compact SUV meant for city streets, the Evoque is limited in terms of interior space which makes it less practical while higher price as compared to rivals makes it lose on affordability. However, the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque still focuses on people looking for style and luxury above all else. Importantly, the Range Rover Evoque is mostly gonna get a redesign for 2020. Therefore, you can either wait for a new model or go with the Volvo XC40 as the best alternative.
