2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque - Review

out of 10
The crossover coupe category is a bit of an odd space. It's not entirely clear what these half-SUV-ish, half-sporty vehicles are supposed to do. Fortunately, with the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, we just don't care.

We don't care because it's a fantastic thing simply to sit inside; it's gorgeous to look at; and it's suprisingly  quick.

Available in five-door as well as three-door versions, the Range Rover Evoque is the least expensive model in the Range Rover range, and while it'll still run you about $42,000 to get in the door, that's about $2,000 less than it would have been for a 2012 model; a new Pure trim level shaves the price without giving up much in the way of equipment.

Under the hood of the Evoque lies a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 240 horsepower. Paired to a six-speed automatic transmission driving all four wheels, the Evoque's engine feels peppy once the turbo is spooled. Handling is very car-like, its small dimensions are relatively light weight helping the Evoque to feel nimble on-road.

The Evoque is more capable than you might think off-road as well, with Land Rover's Terrain Response system helping to cope with a variety of surfaces to provide traction in almost any condition. New for 2013 is an off-road navigation feature that helps you keep track of your off-map excursions. MagneRide dampers also help the Evoque overcome its road-biased nature.

The interior of the Evoque is even more attractive than its exterior, with spacious front seats trimmed in qulaity materials and set before an attractively laid-out dash. The rear seats are a bit tighter, especially when getting in or out of them in the three-door model. Cargo space isn't enormous (it's a small crossover, after all) but at about 24 cubic feet of space, it can haul a fair quantity of gear.

Pricing starts at just under $42,000 and ranges upward from there as you add equipment, features, and appearance upgrades. For the full details on the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque's standard and available features--and much more--read the review at The Car Connection.
