The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque comes completely redesigned this year though changes are barely noticeable to regular eyes. Starting at just $42,650, it offers a turbocharged engine that can be upgraded to a 48-volt mild-hybrid setup in the R-Dynamic trims. Both the engines are mated to a ZF-sourced nine-speed gearbox and are powerful enough to motivate this subcompact SUV with ease.

Like the rest of the Land Rover lineup, the Evoque shares the Land Rover's invincible off-road capabilities, a plush cabin, and sleek exterior styling. It can carry four passengers in comfort although seating for five is what the company claims. Evoque's rivals are priced similar to it and they offer everything that Evoque does except that none can match its off-road capabilities.

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque impresses on various aspects. First and foremost is the way it looks. Even in a sub-compact proportion, it still flaunts the bold and masculine curves and edges of the larger Range Rover. Unlike the gentle crossover-like stance of its rivals, like the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, Audi Q5, and the BMW X3, the Evoque looks very capable and sturdy.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Front View

Talking about capability, it's a Range Rover after all and it does possess the offroading proficiency of its larger sibling. Apart from the looks and skillfulness, the Evoque features robust powertrain options and excellent handling, making it fun to drive and maneuverable around city traffic. Lying in the luxury category, it does have a premium interior layout and build quality. Thus the 2020 Evoque barely misses out on anything at the given price point.

We Recommend

Since the Land Rover is generous enough to offer all the higher trim features as an optional extra on the lower trims we suggest picking the base trim and as per your need and requirement, you can add the available features.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Engine and Performance

7.0/10

"In sharp contrast to the traditional Land Rover look, the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque offers buyers all the luxury and off-road ability expected of a vehicle carrying the legendary British name, but in an SUV that is sleek, low and sporty." - Autotrader

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque comes with two engine options, the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder generates 246 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. On R-Dynamic editions, the same engine adds a 48-volt mild-hybrid setup that raises the power to 296 hp and torque to 295 lb-ft. Most drivers will find the base four-cylinder engine to be more than adequate. Each comes with an AWD and a nine-speed transmission that is smooth in terms of gearshifts and hardly struggles to find the right gear. Although paddle shifters are also given in case you want to take things under your control.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Engine Bay

The Range Rover Evoque accelerates enthusiastically with little to no turbo lag. The 2020 Evoque can go from 0-60 mph in 7.0 seconds flat while the Evoque with the mild-hybrid engine setup does the same sprints in 6.0 seconds flat. The Range Rover Evoque is athletic on-road than most of its bigger cousins. The steering is responsive but feels disconnected from what's happening on the road. Thus it requires more than necessary inputs from the drivers. Because of its Land Rover DNA, the Evoque’s suspension is tuned for a smooth on-road experience and a composed rough tarmac drive. Stil it maintains composure on curvy roads and highways without feeling too stiff.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Driving View

The Evoque is a capable off-roading SUV. It comes standard with all-wheel-drive, hill descent control, and All-Terrain Progress Control, which is like a low-speed cruise-control system for off-roading. You can adjust the Terrain Response settings to match your landscape, with General Driving, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud and Ruts, and Sand modes or put it in the Auto mode and carry-on. The Evoque is equipped with high-performance brakes and provides acceptable stopping power. The pedal is soft initially and it gradually firms up giving reassuring feedback and a composed stopping.

In this comparison, the GLC-Class puts out the best power and torque figures. Though all the SUVs are priced in the same ballpark figure as the Evoque, they do not meet the Evoque in terms of driving dynamics or off-road ability. While when it comes to acceleration the Evoque is the slowest and thus left behind with the Audi Q5 doing 0-60 mph in under six seconds followed by the GLC-Class which did it in six seconds flat. 

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Fuel Economy

4.0/10

The 2020 Range Rover Evoque powered by the base 2.0-liter engine returns 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway while the mild-hybrid version of the same engine offers 1 mpg more in the city and 1 mpg less on the highway compared to the base engine. The 2020 Evoque gets a 17.7-gallon fuel tank which is not enough to breach the 400 miles city range or 500 miles highway range.

Looking at the table it is evident that the Evoque is the least efficient SUV among all. While the BMW X3 is the most fuel-efficient returning 5 mpg more in the city and 2 mpg more on the highway compared to the Evoque. When it comes to range from a tankful the X3 offers the best 430 miles in the city while the Q5 has the highest 518 miles of range on the highway. 

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Interior

7.9/10

Cramped inside, moderate cargo space and pricey compared to other SUVs of roughly similar capabilities, few are as stylish as the Evoque but many deliver much more function for the money - Kellybluebook

With the 2020 Range Rover Evoque, you won't need to forfeit a comfortable cabin to have a competent 4WD vehicle. Grained leather seats, soft-touch doors and trim, and brush aluminum are among its highlights. Inside, the Evoque has a swanky and well-laid interior which is much inspired by Discovery while the infotainment setup has been lifted from the Velar. The front leather seats are comfortable with ample bolstering, it is power-adjustable, and comes with a heated and ventilated function to make for a comfortable traveling experience.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Dashboard

Rear seating quarters are cramped, though that's common for a compact crossover. Although ingress and egress at the rear are easy due to the rear wheels being pushed back in the rear bumper. Six-footers seating back to back will have snug legroom and the headroom will be tight but for people lower than that the space is adequate. New for the 2020 Evoque is the Land Rover's Touch Pro infotainment system that comes with a 10-inch touchscreen screen which on the higher trims gets upgraded to Touch Pro Duo and thus adds another 10-inch display for HVAC controls, heated seats, etc.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Infotainment

As standard, the Evoque comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, navigation, Wi-Fi hotspot, etc. The base model gets a six-speaker sound system while the higher trims come with a choice of 10- or 14-speaker Meridian sound system which is available as an optional extra on the base trim.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Cargo

The four-door Evoque even though being a compact SUV offers a generous 21.5 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 50.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. The rear seats can be folded in 40/20/40-split to increase the space. For added convenience, you get a power liftgate which can be upgraded to a gesture-controlled liftgate that opens the boot lid by just waving your foot under the rear bumper.

When it comes to the cabin space the front headroom and shoulder room are snug on the Evoque and taller folks will be at ease on the likes of Audi Q5 and the BMW X3. Moving to the rear seats the major difference among the SUVs here is of the legroom on offer. The Evoque offers the least amount of rear leg space while the Audi Q5 offers the best rear legroom among all. Behind the rear seats, the BMW X3 offers the best cargo capacity of 28.7 cubic feet followed by the Q5 while the GLC-Class offers the least amount of space behind the rear seats for cargo.

"You may have to look twice to discern the difference between the 2019 and 2020 Range Rover Evoque, and given the first generation’s impressive good looks, that’s probably a good." -Kelly Blue Book

The 2020 Evoque looks very flashy and takes design cues from the bigger kin Velar. Unique colors, stylish wheels, optional two-tone paint jobs, and a long list of accessories make the Evoque highly customizable. For 2020, Land Rover claims that the Evoque has undergone a big change but sadly it isn't noticeable at the first glance except for the design of the headlights. 

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Front Three-Quarter View

The front and rear fascia are inspired by Velar with chiseled side proportions and a raked roof structure. The grille has been shrunken and the air vents are enlarged. Evoque maintains a graceful appearance with a squarer front and boxier jaw that matches with premium models.

That being said, the X3 measures the longest and the tallest while the GLC-Class has the longest wheelbase among all.

9.0/10

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs 2020 Audi Q5

Starting at a slightly premium the Audi Q5 is a worthy bargain. It gets a more powerful motor that is fuel-efficient too. The cabin and cargo space in the Q5 owing to its bigger dimensions is better than the Evoque any time of the day.  

2020 Audi Q5

But all this comes in the form of a compromise on the off-road capability which the Evoque wears as a badge of pride in the segment. So if you are looking for a luxurious off-roader go with the Evoque else Q5 is the better choice.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

The 2020 GLC-Class is a tad bit cheaper than the Evoque but in no way it is less in terms of comfort and luxury. Rather in these two aspects, both the SUVs are equally matched. The cabin space is slightly better on the GLC-Class while it also strikes a fine balance between performance and gas mileage.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Also, the GLC-Class offers a more powerful engine option and bigger dimensions while the cargo space is better on the Evoque. Another down point for the GLC-Class is that it is a strict soft-roader, unlike the Evoque. So the Evoque might invoke an instant celebrity status but unless you frequent the trails the GLC-Class will suffice your luxury cravings.

2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Final Verdict

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is intended to lure younger buyers who can’t opt for a pricey Land Rover Range Rover Sport. It is stylish yet pretty capable off the beaten path, following its family tradition. With a starting price of just under $43,000, the Evoque may very well be the best-looking bargain in the Land Rover fleet.
