Here’s a rundown of what you can expect from this SUV and why it’s perfect for those who like Britain’s reputation for upholding established customs.

The 2021 Range Rover Evoque demonstrates how Britain loves time-honored traditions. When you buy a car from this beloved automaker, you’re investing in a treasured brand name. The Evoque is a shining example of how Range Rover is committed to creating cars that depict a minimalistic yet polished design.

The Evoque is a subcompact luxury SUV with a starting price of $44,350. It has standard performance and certain technological features aren’t surprising, but two new additions, related to ensuring that the driver has enough support when navigating through treacherous conditions, are impressive.

Here’s a rundown of what you can expect from this SUV and why it’s perfect for those who like Britain’s reputation for upholding established customs.

Range Rover Favors Tradition Over Modernization

Range Rover is synonymous with prevailing customs, as the Evoque and its design know all too well. The design remains unchanged, as there is a distinct back curve and the front headlights resemble a coupe appearance. There’s a panoramic sunroof waiting to be enjoyed. While the Evoque appears sporty, the latest BMW and Mercedes-Benz SUVs will interest buyers more because these two companies guarantee more thrills.

The interior is luxurious- the seats are Windsor leather- and we were expecting nothing less from Range Rover. However, the elegant seating is the only stellar interior trait in this SUV. Cramped seating means that long road trips are not ideal. Cargo space- 21.5 cubic feet- is limited. Folding the seat frees up additional space, as there’s now 50.5 cubic feet. Still, Range Rover’s rivals perform better in this category: The Cadillac XT4 has 22.3 cubic feet of space, and the Lincoln Corsair has 27.6 cubic feet of space.

The engine capabilities additionally have not improved. The all-wheel-drive SUV is equipped with a four-cylinder engine and nine-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces 246 horsepower, and accelerating t0 60 miles takes seven seconds. The Evoque can reach 143 miles per hour, and you’ll need to fill this SUV up with premium fuel.

Fuel economy is okay, as the Evoque delivers 27 miles per gallon on the highway and 20 miles per gallon on the city. Overall, the BMW X1 and the Volvo XC40 are stronger cars.

The Technology Is Standard

There is a ten-inch touchscreen that has Pivi Pro, a hallmark technology trait in a Range Rover. A November 2020 article on the automaker’s website reports that, “To enable almost instantaneous start-up, Pivi Pro has its own dedicated power source, so navigation is ready as soon as the driver is behind the wheel, while the embedded apps available – including Spotify, Deezer, and TuneIn – provide full functionality even without your smartphone. Further connected features include Google and Microsoft Outlook calendar integration which enables the driver to view work diaries and even join important calls through the hands-free system. Meanwhile, weather at destination gives a forecast depending on the route entered in the navigation system.” The Pivi Pro feature is better than the previous InControl Touch Pro feature, as it’s more suitable to this digitalized word and feels refreshing to use.

The car accepts Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Wi-Fi hotspots, wireless charging, and a Meridian audio system are noncompulsory.

Certain Features Boost This Car’s Approval Rating

Several traits make this car memorable. To begin, Water Wade Sensing is incredible, as the SUV can drive through 23-inch deep water. There’s a 3D Surround camera in this SUV. A December 2020 article from the Kelley Blue Book mentions that, “It helps you see potential hazards in front of the Evoque and it can be operated at speeds up to 18 mph.”

Terrain Response 2 has five functions-Auto, General, Eco, Sand, Grass-Gravel-Snow, and Mud & Ruts- and proves that this car is prepared to assist drivers in navigating unstable roads. This feature scans the road and automatically picks the most appropriate driving mode.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not evaluated this SUV yet, but the Evoque comes with various safety capabilities: emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. Evoque’s warranty is disappointing, as it’s subpar and not suitable for people who do long-distance driving and accumulate many miles. The Lexus NX is the ideal option for those who drive everywhere, whether that’s driving to run errands or driving cross-country. While the NX is nice for those who drive on long journeys, the Evoque is best for short local trips.
