"Hello, I'm interested in the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. Is this a good buy? – Maxime
We understand your interest in Land Rover Range Rover Evoque because it's an attractive little SUV that stands out from the crowd in its class. In fact, we invite you to watch our quick test of the vehicle in which we analyzed it in depth.
The strongest part of the Evoque is its design which, we will tell ourselves, is quite successful, both on the outside and inside. This small SUV has a rich, sporty and modern look. Ditto for its dashboard which is equipped with no less than three LCD screens, each displaying a clear, attractive and well thought-out interface.
However, we criticize the Evoque’s cabin for being a bit stuck, especially for older people, and for lacking storage space. Also be warned that, while its starting price of $ 47,950 is all in all competitive, this charming SUV can easily exceed $ 70,000 when properly equipped. To us, this high price is nonsense.
We also have to report some noticeable assembly faults, including poor quality plastic fittings and moldings. The Evoque's performance also falls short of the competition, and its fuel consumption is decent, nothing more. In short, this vehicle disappointed us. In fact, we much preferred the previous generation model.
The saddest thing about the Evoque is its disastrous reliability. As we know, Land Rover products do not have a good reputation in this area. We would like the manufacturer to improve, but unfortunately it is not in the game. Low initial quality ratings paired with a pitiful resale value just add to the list of cons.
Due to these shortcomings, we unfortunately cannot recommend the purchase of an Evoque. Even though it is beautiful, comfortable, and its handling overall remains attractive, there are much better products at comparable prices.
Thank you for trusting the RPM team.
