RR Evoque: driven to extremes
The hottest, muddiest, coldest, glitziest test in history: we go global in the baby Rangey
Posted: 09 Dec 2011
Didn't bother the Evoque. Sand, gravel, snow, this little monster - no longer than a Ford Focus - demonstrates a rottweiler-like determination to haul its way over everything in its path. Yesterday, we found ourselves on a rocky beach beside an iceberg-filled lagoon, where the giant floes queued patiently, waiting their turn to escape to sea.
Our only escape route, however, was a mile of bouldery beach, the ultimate test of the Evoque's suspension. In sand or mud, a car can simply sink, which is inconvenient but rarely terminal. But fail to deal with a foot-high rock, and it'll simply shear the wheels straight from the car.
