RR Evoque: driven to extremes
The hottest, muddiest, coldest, glitziest test in history: we go global in the baby Rangey

Nine days and a couple of thousand miles later, I've figured it out. Firstly, most Evoque buyers won't choose this car on a box-ticking basis. Instead, it's an iPad, an I-want-one-of-those purchases. There isn't, so far as I can tell, any rational reason to buy Apple's shiny tablet over a cheaper, more flexible netbook, but millions still do, because the iPad has that halo glow of... specialness.
Similarly the Evoque. But it's more than a mere luxury purchase, a flavour-of-the-month addendum for the family with four cars on their driveway already. The Evoque adds up on strictly rational grounds, too. It's an impeccably behaved, luxurious road car with the ability to tackle almost any terrain.
