2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Overview

Is the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque a Good Used SUV?

The Range Rover Evoque isn’t a great option if you’re shopping for a used luxury subcompact SUV. The Evoque has snug back seats, mediocre fuel economy, and a transmission that feels hesitant. Not only does this Land Rover have a low predicted reliability rating, but it also has higher projected ownership costs than many class rivals. These drawbacks largely overshadow the Evoque’s handsome interior and competent off-road ability. Before you buy, consider top-rated alternatives like the 2017 BMW X1.

That said, you may want to spring for the newer model if you’re looking for better performance.

Which Model Year of the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Is Best?

Land Rover introduced the Range Rover Evoque for the 2012 model year, and there hasn't been a full redesign since. This means you can save a lot of money with a very similar yet older model. It’s worth mentioning that none of these Evoque models are highly ranked, however, due to their lower-than-average reliability ratings.

If you want an Evoque with the latest active safety features, limit your search to the 2014-and-newer models. The earlier 2012 and 2013 models weren’t available with adaptive cruise control or forward collision warning with brake assist. If you want an Evoque convertible, opt for a model from 2017 or after.

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque or 2017 BMW X1?

The 2017 BMW X1 can’t match the Evoque’s off-road ability, but it outshines the Range Rover in most other areas. The BMW rates higher for predicted reliability, and it delivers zippier acceleration and better fuel economy (up to 23/32 mpg). Its cabin has more rear-seat and cargo space and an easier-to-use infotainment system. Used X1 models are often less expensive as well, rounding out the reasons why it’s a better choice.

Which Is Better: 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque or 2017 Audi Q3?

The 2017 Audi Q3 isn’t as well-rounded as the BMW, but it’s still a better pick than the Evoque. The Audi rewards occupants with a smoother and comfier ride. It rates higher for predicted reliability as well, and used models are typically much less expensive.

2017 Evoque Performance

How Does the 2017 Range Rover Evoque Drive?

The Evoque has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 240 horsepower. A nine-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive are standard. Though the Evoque’s powertrain provides adequate passing power after you get moving, it struggles initially to get the Evoque up to speed. The transmission seems hesitant to downshift when needed, and it occasionally clunks into gear in stop-and-go city driving.

Thanks in part to its responsive steering and strong brakes, the Evoque feels confident around turns. Its suspension yields a firm ride, but not to the point of feeling uncomfortable.

All models come equipped with two handy off-roading features. Land Rover’s Terrain Response system allows the driver to adjust the traction control for different off-road surfaces like gravel, grass, snow, mud, and sand. All-Terrain Progress Control functions like a low-speed cruise control for off-road driving. Both systems work well, and they make the SUV surprisingly capable on rough terrain.

Does the 2017 Range Rover Evoque Get Good Gas Mileage?

The Evoque gets low fuel economy for a luxury subcompact SUV. It returns just 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, or 20/28 mpg with the convertible.

2017 Range Rover Evoque Towing Capacity

The Evoque two- and five-door models can tow up to 3,960 pounds when properly equipped. Evoque convertible models are rated to tow 3,300 pounds.

2017 Range Rover Evoque Interior

How Many People Does the 2017 Range Rover Evoque Seat?

The 2017 Evoque is available as a five-door SUV, a two-door coupe, and two-door convertible. The two- and five-door models have five seats; the Evoque convertible seats four.

The front seats are comfortable, supportive, and roomy in all three body styles. However, the rear seats are cramped, and they’re especially awkward to access in the coupe and convertible models. Rear visibility is poor as well, due to the SUV’s sloping roofline and slim windows.

That said, the Evoque’s cabin showcases Land Rover’s signature sleek styling and lush interior materials. There’s plenty of crisp metal accents, soft-touch plastic, and upholstered surfaces. Leather seats are standard; heated, ventilated, and massaging seats are available.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2017 Range Rover Evoque?

The Evoque has two full sets of LATCH connectors for installing child safety seats.

2017 Range Rover Evoque Features

The Evoque comes standard with an 8-inch touch-screen navigation system, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and a USB port. Available features include a larger 10-inch touch screen, a CD player, satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a hands-free power tailgate, and a head-up display. The basic audio and climate controls are user-friendly, but the 8-inch touch screen can be a little slow to respond to inputs. The InControl Pro’s larger 10-inch screen reacts a bit quicker and is easier to see when driving.
