Used Car: 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Review
Reviewers said the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has an upscale interior and great driving dynamics, but its practicality is limited by poor rearward visibility and too little cargo and cabin space.
The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has a turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Reviewers praised the Evoque for its quick acceleration from a stop and said it has more than enough power for highway passing and merging. According to the EPA, the 2014 Range Rover Evoque earns 21/30 mpg city/highway, which is close to average for the class. Automotive journalists reported that the 2014 Evoque has agile handling and its ride is firm, yet comfortable. The Evoque comes standard with all-wheel drive, and reviewers pointed out that the 2014 Evoque offers good off-road performance for the class.
Reviewers praised the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque for its high-end cabin materials, which they said create a luxurious environment. According to auto writers, the 2014 Evoque has supportive front seats, but its rear seats have limited head- and legroom. Critics complained that the Evoque has poor rearward visibility. Standard equipment includes a rearview camera, an 8-inch touch-screen display, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 11-speaker Meridian stereo, two USB ports and Bluetooth. Available features include navigation, a panoramic sunroof, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, a 17-speaker Meridian audio system and a surround-view camera system that gives a 360-degree view around the SUV. Test drivers agreed that the upgraded Meridian stereo has excellent sound quality, and the available surround-view camera system is a convenient feature. The four-door Range Rover Evoque has 20.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 51 with them folded. The two-door Evoque has 19.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear row and 47.6 with the rear row folded. Those are some of the smallest cargo capacities in the class.
