2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque was new.

Scorecard

Interior: 7.9

The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque's interior is replete with premium materials and handsome styling. The front seats are comfortable, but the rear seats are cramped. The simple-yet-smart layout of the dash is attractive, though the infotainment system responds slowly to commands. The Evoque's cargo capacity is lower than that of other luxury subcompact SUVs.

  • "I tested the HSE version, which features extras such as black visual accents, auto-leveling headlights, a more robust navigation system and Oxford leather seats. Cabin materials are up to par for a vehicle wearing the Range Rover moniker as part of its long name, and it has a luxurious cabin." -- Cars.com
  • "The Range Rover Evoque's attractive styling doesn't stop at the sheet metal, especially with the 2016 refresh that has added new refinements to the interior. … The integration of the large, 8-inch touchscreen in the center of the dash is superb, and the uncluttered, steeply angled center stack is effective and pleasing to the eye." -- Edmunds (2016)
  • "The Evoque has several characteristics setting it apart from the competition. Perhaps the most notable is its interior, which features excellent build quality, fine materials and pleasing aesthetics. Even in the base model, the Evoque's interior is stunning, with soft-touch materials, brushed aluminum trim and an automatic gear selector that rises out of the center console." – Autotrader (2015)

Seating

The 2017 Evoque seats five (four in the convertible) and comes standard with leather upholstery. Upgraded leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated front seats, massaging front seats, heated rear seats, a heated windshield, and a heated steering wheel are available.

The front seats are comfortable, but the sloping roofline limits rear headroom and keeps the interior fairly dark. In two-door models, getting in and out of the rear seats proves challenging. The Evoque's roofline and narrow windows impair visibility in all directions.

  • "Step inside the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, and you'll find a passenger cabin that looks great but is really meant for two people, not five. Front seats offer good comfort and support, and the heated and ventilated versions are a boon in climate extremes. The rear seats are another matter entirely, however, as the sloping roofline reduces headroom dramatically. Getting in and out of that backseat can also be a challenge, especially in the two-door coupe and convertible models. Finally, the narrow side and rear windows conspire to impede visibility, making the available 360-degree camera system a valuable tool for maneuvering in tight quarters." -- Edmunds
  • Another convertible caveat: You lose one seat – there's only seating for four instead of five as in other versions of the Evoque. I found the Evoque Convertible to be a real convertible in the sense that the front seats are comfortable but the backseat is not. With the driver's seat set where I like it (I'm 5-foot-11), I couldn't physically fit behind it to climb into the back. I was able to get in from the passenger side more easily and, once there, it's a usable seat for short journeys, but I wouldn't recommend putting anyone you like back there for more than an hour or so." -- Cars.com
  • The seats are comfortable yet supportive, and passenger space is good though a little tight in back. Sitting three across is strictly short-term. Accessing that rear seat is obviously more challenging in the 3-door." -- Kelley Blue Book (2015)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2017 Range Rover Evoque include push-button start, automatic climate control, an 11-speaker Meridian audio system, a USB port, Bluetooth, emergency brake assist, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and the InControl Touch infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen. Available features include HD Radio, satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 17-speaker Meridian audio system, navigation, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, driver drowsiness monitoring, blind spot monitoring, automatic parallel and perpendicular park assist, and a 360-degree camera system.

The infotainment system’s touch screen makes apps look the same way they do on a smartphone, but it is slow to respond to inputs. The available 17-speaker audio system sounds sublime.

  • "The Range Rover Evoque's stylish exterior is carried over inside the cabin with a sleek, logical control layout and quality materials throughout. The good-sized 8-inch touchscreen in the center of the dash looks great, but it can be a little slow to respond to inputs compared to competing systems. The convertible's new 10.2-inch display is a big improvement thanks to both its larger screen and its greater computing power. The infotainment system's InControl Apps suite that allows apps on a connected smartphone to be accessed from the in-dash touchscreen is another plus, as are the remote control features that allow you to lock and unlock doors, start the engine and adjust the climate control from your smartphone's screen." -- Edmunds
  • "The Evoque's power tailgate worked fine, and the backup camera was pretty convenient, but the main 8" touchscreen wasn't super easy to use. … nor was the interface intuitive." -- Jalopnik (2013)
  • "High-end audio with up to 17 speakers is supplied by Meridian, a company that claims to have invented surround sound, and it sounds brilliant." -- Autoweek (2012)

Cargo

The four-door 2017 Range Rover Evoque model offers 20.3 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up and 51 cubic feet with the seats folded. The two-door model offers 19.4 cubic feet of space with the rear seats up and 47.6 with them folded. The two-door convertible has an 8.9-cubic-foot trunk. Both models have less cargo space than luxury subcompact SUV rivals. A hands-free power liftgate is available. The Evoque’s sloping body design limits cargo space. There is plenty of room for groceries and similar items, but larger objects may not fit.

  • "Last but not least is the Evoque's cargo capacity, which is diminished due to that down-swept roofline. The four-door hatchback offers just 20.3 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats and 51 cubic feet with those seatbacks folded down. While these numbers are suitable for adventure getaways for two people, they fall short compared to the cargo holds offered by compact crossover competitors such as the BMW X3." -- Edmunds
  • "There are also compromises to cargo room. A small opening in the rear flips open to reveal 8.9 cubic feet of cargo space, which is enough to carry bags for a weekend getaway or a set of golf clubs but not much else." -- Cars.com
  • Cargo space is okay in both models with fold-down rear seats adding some room for loads, but the rakish, tapering body design does squeeze space." -- Kelley Blue Book (2015)
  • "[T]he sharply angled hatch reduces cargo space to the point where an equal-size sedan would probably offer more actual load capability." -- Autoweek (2013)
