RR Evoque: driven to extremes
The hottest, muddiest, coldest, glitziest test in history: we go global in the baby Rangey
Posted: 09 Dec 2011
Just like Vegas itself. ‘OUR BBQ RIBS ARE THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN TOWN!!!' blares a 50-foot-wide neon billboard. The concept of irony hasn't reached here, clearly. "Buy one, get one! Buy one, get one!" bellows a street vendor, hawking something unidentified and luminescent. That isn't a special offer: that's the definition of a transaction.
Vegas couldn't care less how the Evoque drives, but you'll be happy to hear it's as impressive in the city as it was in Scotland. We're in the more powerful, 187bhp diesel (a 148bhp version of the same engine is available), a unit as refined as it is massively torquey, with not a hint of diesel rattle and a mighty spit of low-end torque.
