Top Gear On Ice: Range Rover Evoque vs Audi Q3
Do these suburban show-offs have the all-weather traction to match their pseudo-suv overcoats?
Posted: 05 Apr 2012
Last week, this road was under attack from WRC cars, on shakedown before Rally Sweden... sweeping between snow banks, oblivious to what lay beneath. If you were to cut out a portion of this surface, it would look like some sort of frosty sandwich. Gravel at the bottom, snow in the middle, icy crust on top. And today, we've added a garnish of Range Rover, a three-d oor Evoque in festive red. With its terrain-response system in the most suitable setting - Grass, Gravel and Snow - it digs down into the layers, drawing two lines in the tundra, up to its wheelnuts in winter.
