Range Rover Evoque

20140202-184225.jpg

Luxury, style, technology, comfort and elegance are just a few words that can be used to describe this coupe-crossover by Land Rover.

Everything about this car is pleasing to the eyes, from the exterior design, the leather stitching, down to the Evoque logo projected on the ground from the side mirrors… this car has the lot.

There are a number of variations you can choose from, but this review will be specifically about the Evoque DYNAMIC model.

Once you step into the drivers seat you never want to leave. The drive is comfortable, the gear changes are noticeably smooth and when you put your foot down it sure as hell goes. For fuel efficiency, I can only comment about the 2.2 litre, 4cyl Turbo-Diesel. The Evoque gets a drink every 2 weeks which is a massive improvement from the Kia Sportage (my girlfriend upgraded recently).

On the technology side, the designers at Land Rover did not hold back. I could go through the whole list but you will end up with RSI on your scrolling finger, so here are a few of my favourites:

o Push Button Start
o 8 inch High Resolution Touch-screen entertainment system
o Bluetooth connectivity
o Interior mood lighting
o Reverse Camera
o Folding Mirrors
o Electric front seats with memory
o Active blind spot sensors
o Park Assist

If I had to mention something negative in this review it would have to be the creaky doors. I will have to get it checked out by Range Rover soon, but for now I highly recommend that you visit your nearest Range Rover dealership to book a test drive.
