2018 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

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

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

CG Says: The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque gets a new turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that is offered with two horsepower ratings: 237 and 286. The previous engine was also a 2.0-liter turbo that was rated at 240 hp. Evoque’s available Wi-Fi has been upgraded to 4G, while the Evoque 2-door wagon has been discontinued. Ranger Rover Evoque is a premium compact crossover SUV available as a 4-door wagon or 2-door convertible. The only other convertible SUV is the Jeep Wrangler. As expected of a Land Rover, all-wheel drive is standard. Available features include blind-spot alert, lane-keep assist, surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, heated/cooled front seats, park assist, and hill-descent control. 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 Convertible model.
