RR Evoque: driven to extremes
The hottest, muddiest, coldest, glitziest test in history: we go global in the baby Rangey
Posted: 09 Dec 2011
True, we're driving the finest Evoque to exploit TopGear's inherent weakness for fast, agile things: the top-spec three-door petrol version in range-topping Dynamic trim, with a 240bhp four-cylinder turbo - essentially the same engine that'll appear in the next Ford Focus ST - mated to a six-speed ZF auto 'box atop the most sporting chassis and 20-inch wheels.
But still, you should have seen the way it made mincemeat - black pudding, even - of that twisty, cambered, slippery, potholed road. In the hands of anything but a Stig-spec test driver, I am sure the Evoque would go down that road faster than even the Golf R, our current 4WD hot-hatch champion.
