The Top Gear car review:Land Rover Range Rover Evoque
Running costs and reliability
Prices start at £31,600 for the 150bhp diesel. All others have four-wheel drive, auto transmission and the mild hybrid system. They proceed well beyond £50k. But then model-for-model it’s no dearer than the first generation, so people must be OK with paying these amounts.
You choose an engine, a visual trim level (base or R-Dynamic) and then one of four equipment levels: base, S, SE and HSE. You get built-in navigation and phone mirroring by ascending to S, while SE brings the multi-screen setup. HSE gets better driver assist, adaptive cruise and Meridian sound, but you can order some of these separately.
For company car drivers, the CO2 outputs range between 143 and 186g/km. Mild hybrid or not, these are mediocre numbers. You’re paying for the off-road ability. On fuel, the mid-power diesels do manage just better than 40mpg on WLTP, while the petrols are around 30mpg, which you might just equal on a run.
Warranty is three years, unlimited mileage. You might need it. Which? has found the outgoing Evoque and current Discovery Sport to be among the least reliable cars you can buy. Just hope the new platform has brought more trustworthy design and manufacturing.
