2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Review

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque offers a premium cabin, a refined ride, and exceptional off-road ability. However, its subpar predicted reliability rating and a few shortcomings compared to rivals confine the Evoque to the middle of our luxury subcompact SUV rankings.

Pros & Cons

  • Premium cabin
  • Capable off-roader
  • Below-average fuel economy with gas engines
  • Small cargo hold
  • Slow-shifting transmission

Is the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque a Good SUV?

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a pretty good luxury subcompact SUV. It has a high-end cabin with lots of high-tech safety features, standard all-wheel drive, and solid handling. However, its performance isn’t flawless. Its base engine is underpowered for an SUV of its weight, and its transmission and steering could be more precise. It's one of the best off-roaders in the class, but check out rivals if you plan to stick to paved roads. Many competitors offer more cargo space, a higher predicted reliability rating, and better fuel economy estimates.

Should I Buy the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque?

If driving enjoyment or having a comfortable off-roader is important to you, consider buying the newly redesigned Evoque. Few classmates can rival the Evoque's off-road capability, but many have appealing traits of their own. For example, the Volvo XC40 has similar on-road performance and state-of-the-art technology, including a semiautonomous driving system. With a starting price roughly $8,900 below that of the Evoque, it’ll cost you less too.

You might want to look beyond the class as well. The Range Rover Velar is a luxury midsize SUV with many of the Evoque’s strengths, but it adds roomier rear seats, a larger cargo hold, a higher max towing capacity, and better fuel economy estimates.

Should I Buy a New or Used Land Rover Range Rover Evoque?

Land Rover redesigned the Evoque for the 2020 model year, adding more standard features – including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the Terrain Response 2 system – a new mild-hybrid powertrain option, and slightly more rear-seat space. For 2020, Land Rover also introduced some new available features, including ClearSight Ground View, which projects a virtual image of what’s beneath the front of the vehicle through the touch screen. You could likely save money with a used model, but you’d miss out on the new Evoque’s substantial updates.

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: Land Rover Range Rover Evoque or Land Rover Range Rover Velar?

The Land Rover Range Rover Velar is a luxury midsize SUV. As such, it has a lot more passenger and cargo room than its smaller sibling. Surprisingly, it also has slightly better fuel economy estimates. The Velar also offers a potent V6 engine option, which is something you won’t find in the Evoque. Both vehicles have luxurious cabins and incredible off-road prowess, but you'll pay around $7,000 less for the Evoque. At the end of the day, choosing between these two Land Rovers is a matter of personal taste, budget, and how much cargo and passenger space you need.

Which Is Better: Land Rover Range Rover Evoque or Mercedes-Benz GLA?

The Mercedes-Benz GLA is not a good luxury subcompact SUV. Acceleration with the base engine feels tepid, and the ride is harsh over most surfaces. There are also a few cheap plastics used around the cabin, which isn’t acceptable for a vehicle that starts at nearly $34,000. On top of that, this Mercedes-Benz has cramped rear seats and a small cargo hold. While the GLA’s tech features may be more intuitive, the Evoque boasts a longer standard equipment list that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, all-wheel drive, leather seats, and more. The Land Rover is the better choice.

Range Rover Evoque Interior

How Many People Does the Range Rover Evoque Seat?

This Land Rover seats up to five people on leather upholstery, and the front occupants get 10-way power-adjustable seats. Options include ventilated and heated front seats, front seats with added power adjustability, massaging front seats, heated rear seats, upgraded leather upholstery, and a heated steering wheel.

The front seats are comfortable and supportive. The second row has a little more kneeroom than previous-generation Evoques, but back-seat space is still a bit tight.

Range Rover Evoque and Car Seats

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has two full sets of LATCH connections for securing child car seats.

Range Rover Evoque Interior Quality

As you’d expect from a luxury SUV, this Land Rover has a premium cabin. It’s attractive, quiet, and filled with soft-touch surfaces.

Range Rover Evoque Cargo Space

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has 21.5 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 50.5 cubic feet with them folded down. That’s about average for the class, though rivals like the Jaguar E-Pace have more room. A power liftgate and a gesture-based liftgate, which allows you to open the liftgate by waving your foot under the bumper, are available.

Range Rover Evoque Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

Standard equipment in the Range Rover Evoque includes a 10-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a navigation system, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a six-speaker stereo. A second 10-inch touch screen is available as part of the InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, as are a head-up display, a digital instrument cluster, a Meridian stereo, satellite radio, HD Radio, and a sunroof.

While the Touch Pro Duo interface is a step up from the old InControl interface, the touch screens can be hard to read while driving. Smartphone users will appreciate standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Range Rover Evoque Performance

Range Rover Evoque Engine: A Wide Range of Power

The Evoque comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 246 horsepower. R-Dynamic models pair this engine with a mild hybrid system, boosting output to 296 horsepower. A nine-speed automatic transmission comes standard with both.

The base engine isn't particularly muscular, but it provides sufficient power for daily driving. R-Dynamic Evoques have brisker acceleration thanks to their gas-electric powertrains. Critics were divided on the transmission, with some finding that it makes timely shifts and others noting that the shifts could be crisper. Most agreed that it was an improvement from the transmission in the outgoing model.

Range Rover Evoque Gas Mileage: Low

This 2020 Land Rover gets an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Models with the gas-electric powertrain gain 1 mpg in the city but lose 1 on the highway. Those figures are below average among luxury subcompact SUVs.

Range Rover Evoque Ride and Handling: Mostly Agile

The all-wheel-drive Range Rover Evoque may not be as agile as the Jaguar E-Pace or BMW X1, but it tackles turns confidently while keeping its occupants comfortable.

Range Rover Evoque Off-Road Performance

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has on-road composure, but it really shines off-road. It leads the class in adventuring capability, thanks in large part to standard features such as Land Rover’s Terrain Response 2 system, which automatically adapts to varying conditions. The Evoque also has 8.3 inches of ground clearance and a wading depth of 23.6 inches.

Range Rover Evoque Towing Capacity

This vehicle can tow up to 3,968 pounds when properly equipped.

Which Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Model Is Right for Me?

Land Rover offers the 2020 Evoque in three main variants: Evoque, R-Dynamic, and First Edition. Some of those can be further divided into trim levels. The Evoque comes in S and SE trims, and the R-Dynamic comes in S, SE, and HSE trims. The First Edition comes as is.

A ton of options and packages are available throughout the lineup. Because of that, you can get a base Evoque S equipped with just about everything this Land Rover offers.

If you want a stronger engine, you’ll have to move to an R-Dynamic model. Its S and SE trims mirror the equipment list of the Evoque S and Evoque SE, and all R-Dynamic models come with a 296-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Land Rover refers to the hybrid system as P300 and the standard system as P250.

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque S

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque S has an MSRP of $42,650. It comes with the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, which includes a 10-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a navigation system, a Wi-Fi hot spot, the InControl Remote app, a six-speaker stereo, and Bluetooth. Comfort amenities include 10-way power-adjustable front seats, leather seats, push-button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control. You'll also get a good number of advanced safety features, including a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, lane keep assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, rain-sensing windshield wipers, traffic sign recognition, and a driver condition monitor.

A panoramic roof is available for $1,280, and a sliding panoramic roof costs $1,800. Other options include heated front seats for $500, heated front and rear seats for $1,000, 14-way power-adjustable front seats for $420, a heated steering wheel for $250, a second 10-inch touch screen for $400, a digital driver display for $550, a head-up display for $900, and a 10- or 14-speaaker Meridian sound system for $350 and $800, respectively. An adaptive suspension costs $715, and satellite radio costs $500.

You can also get proximity keyless entry for $550 or an Activity Key wristband, which lets you lock or unlock the car via a waterproof bracelet, for $205. A powered tailgate costs $355, and a gesture-based tailgate that opens when you wave your foot under it costs $450.

Land Rover offers several packages that bundle various safety features. The Park package adds a 360-degree parking camera, rear cross traffic alert, parallel and perpendicular park assist, and safe exit assist for $800. For $1,700, you can get the Drive package. It adds the 14-way power-adjustable seats listed above, as well as blind spot monitoring, high-speed emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. Once you’ve added the Drive package, wade sensors that alert you when the vehicle is approaching its maximum water depth is a no-cost option.

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque SE

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque SE retails for $47,200. It adds a second 10-inch touch screen to complete the Touch Pro Duo system, a 12.3-inch digital driver display, a 360-degree camera, safe exit assist, rear cross traffic alert, parallel and perpendicular park assist, automatic high beams, adaptive headlights, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, and a power tailgate.

Otherwise, the same options are available, though prices may vary.

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque R-Dynamic

The R-Dynamic S comes with the stronger turbocharged four-cylinder engine and starts at $46,600. Other than the engine, its equipment list mirrors that of the Evoque S. Likewise, the R-Dynamic SE matches up with the Evoque SE. There are some notable differences with the R-Dynamic HSE, however.

With a base price of $55,800, the HSE features a hands-free tailgate, proximity keyless entry, 16-way power-adjustable front seats, upgraded leather upholstery, a 10-speaker Meridian sound system, and the contents of the Drive package.

The same options are available, though pricing may vary. The R-Dynamic HSE also offers massaging front seats for $800 and heated and ventilated front seats along with heated rear seats for $1,300.

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque First Edition

The First Edition ($56,850) reverts to the base Evoque’s engine but keeps many of the R-Dynamic SE’s features, as well as a head-up display, satellite and HD Radio, and the Drive package.

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a great off-roader that also feels confident on-road. It has a premium cabin and comes standard with many high-tech safety features. On the other hand, this luxury subcompact SUV has a subpar predicted reliability rating, and many rivals have peppier engines, larger cargo capacities, and more affordable starting prices.
