Range Rover Evoque | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – The Evoque may be the first truly sensuous SUV in history. It’s a captivating stiletto heel in a closet full of Land Rover earth shoes. Some loose family features are appliqued on its taut, angular body one that, you won’t be surprised to hear, has a fan in the form of taut, angular hominid Victoria Beckham. But those are mostly for show, little geocaching leftovers of Range Rover’s past. This soft-roader is all about tomorrow, and it lives to be seen with every hair in place, not covered in muck.
Front drive is an option. So, too, are manual gearboxes, a petrol engine, one trim level lower and one higher than our test car, and a host of other trim, styling and refinement features aching to take an Evoque towards £50k. To find out if it is worth that or any kind of money is our purpose today.

Range Rover Evoque Interior and Exterior :
Range Rover Evoque Interior and Exterior. – A sexy fusion of its own LRX concept vehicle and of course the MINI Cooper, the 2012 Range Rover Evoque is the first coupe like SUV to really work. It’s an aesthetic home run from the outside, and pretty successful inside as well.
Whether it’s trimmed out with cool metallics or warm woods, the Evoque’s cabin is just as suggestive of bigger Range Rovers, without aping their formal construction. Big, round gauges are topped by a twin-stitched dash cap, a loving, couture touch. Cut-corner rectangles frame the console, the LCD touchscreen, the gear selector, the door panel inserts. Pay your way into “Dynamic” Evoques, and some electrifying color and trim combinations won’t remind you of anything British, except maybe Wham!, or go with “Prestige” combinations to be coddled and swaddled in the usual walnuts and leathers. Where there’s metal inside the Evoque, it’s real and pleasantly cold to the touch. Land Rover’s also paid special attention to interior lighting: ambient LED casts a driver-selectable set of colors, which turn to red on Dynamic models when sport driving mode is engaged.
If you expect to give up a lot, other than extra cash, to fit into the Evoque lifestyle, you may want to try one on for size first. There’s less room than the LR2, but the Evoque is wider, so overall interior volume isn’t intolerable. Up front it’s quite comfortable for adults, a little less so in the back seat but not objectionably so, so long as you’ve bought into the coupe-like premise. What’s not easy to swallow is a big adult gut, if you have to clamber into the back seat of three door Evoques. Meanwhile, the car itself can tote almost a couple dozen cubic feet of luggage, no matter which body you choose.
Range Rover Evoque Engine :
Range Rover Evoque Engine. – The 2.0-liter “Si4″ engine is, in fact, essentially the same one Ford installs in the latest EcoBoost editions of the 2012 Edge and 2012 Explorer. A 2.0-liter four cylinder with direct injection and turbocharging, the engine spins out 240 horsepower more than the Ford derived in-line six fitted to the Land Rover LR2. As it’s doing across the Ford lineup, the turbo four provides a little jet-fuel jolt to the Rover identity, trading brawny strength for something more raucous, and surely less refined, but just as quick. There’s plenty of whistle and thrum in the Evoque’s cabin when the turbo hits full boil, and a measurable bit of lag until it does fine for on road merging, not so ideal for delicate off-pavement mudding and it can launch the Evoque to 60 mph in about 7.0 seconds, Land Rover says, without much doubt.
