2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Pros: Head-turning, concept-vehicle styling; premium interior trimmings; still boasts impressive off-road capabilities

Cons: Stiff pricing, especially considering the 4-cyl. powertrain; cramped back-seat area; impracticality of 2-door model

CG Says: For 2016, Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has refreshed exterior and interior styling. Trim names have been revised to better align with other Land Rover ranges. New options include hands-free power tailgate, full LED headlights, head-up instrument display, lane-keeping assist, and driver-drowsiness alert. Evoque was created to expand the Range Rover brand’s market reach with a blend of more-affordable pricing, head-turning looks, city-friendly size, zippy performance, reasonable fuel economy, and Land Rover off-road cachet. It succeeds on all those fronts, but it is still too expensive compared to most of its similarly luxurious class rivals. Evoque appeals most to shoppers who place a premium on style and designer-label cachet over value and cargo functionality… and that goes double for the panache-over-practicality 2-door Coupe models.
