2018 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Overview

Is the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque a Good Used SUV?

No, the Evoque is not a great used SUV. It’s one of the priciest models in the class, and it was overdue for an update and new features long before the 2018 model year. You’ll find that most rivals cost less, perform better, and use less fuel.

The 2018 Range Rover Evoque has some merits:

  • Energetic turbocharged engines
  • Easy maneuverability
  • Class-leading off-road abilities
  • Ritzy cabin made with first-rate materials
  • Straightforward infotainment system

The Evoque has even more flaws:

  • Below-average predicted reliability rating
  • Outdated compared to rivals
  • Unrefined transmission
  • Poor gas mileage for class
  • Entry and exit can be challenging
  • Sloping roofline cuts into headroom
  • Paltry cargo space in convertible body style
  • Hard-to-reach infotainment controls

How Much Does the 2018 Range Rover Evoque Cost to Own?

The 2018 Evoque’s five-year costs for gas, insurance, repairs, and maintenance are projected to be $30,100, or $6,020 per year. That’s about average for a luxury subcompact SUV.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Evoque?

Land Rover fully redesigned the Evoque for the 2020 model year. This new generation comes with more standard features, such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Land Rover also increased the SUV’s rear seating space and introduced the Terrain Response 2 system, which automatically adapts to varying road conditions. The latest model also offers some new options, including ClearSight Ground View, which projects a virtual image onto the touch screen showing what’s beneath the front of the vehicle.

Pricing for the new model starts at $42,650. A used model likely costs less, but the convenience of the 2020 Evoque’s easy smartphone connectivity, extra back-seat space, and updated adaptive suspension system may be worth considering.

There are few differences between the 2018 Range Rover Evoque and the 2012 model that marked the Land Rover's debut. You can save a good amount of money by purchasing a similar model from a previous year. The most notable changes to this SUV were the introduction of two new turbocharged engines and the discontinuation of the two-door coupe for 2018. For 2019, the Evoque's infotainment system was updated with quicker response times.

Which Used Range Rover Evoque Trim Is Right for Me?

The 2018 four-door Range Rover Evoque comes in six trims: SE, SE Premium, Landmark Edition, HSE, HSE Dynamic, and Autobiography. The two-door Evoque convertible comes in two trims: SE Dynamic and HSE Dynamic.

The base SE trim’s healthy features list should satisfy most shoppers checking out the four-door model. It’s available with several packages, so you may be able to find an SE equipped with extra climate, audio, and safety features. If you want a few more amenities, skip the SE Premium trim and go for the HSE trim, which comes with much more, including blind spot monitoring and a larger touch screen. 

If you want the convertible body style, take a look at the HSE Dynamic trim. It has a lot more standard features than the SE Dynamic convertible. Keep in mind, however, that the Evoque convertible is typically priced much higher than its hardtop counterpart. 

  • Range Rover Evoque SE: The base SE comes standard with push-button start, power-adjustable front seats, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and the InControl Touch infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, a USB port, Bluetooth, and navigation. The Evoque Convertible SE Dynamic adds a 10-inch touch screen and a 10-speaker Meridian sound system.
  • Range Rover Evoque SE Premium: The SE Premium adds a hands-free power liftgate.
  • Range Rover Evoque HSE: The Evoque HSE has a 10-speaker Meridian audio system, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and a 10-inch touch screen.
  • Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic: The HSE Dynamic is the first trim available with the 286-horsepower engine. It also features enhanced exterior and interior styling. The Range Rover Evoque Convertible HSE Dynamic adds heated front seats, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and keyless entry. Unlike the four-door version, the HSE Dynamic convertible isn't available with the more powerful engine.
  • Range Rover Evoque Autobiography: The top-of-the-line Range Rover Evoque Autobiography comes with ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, 14-way power-adjustable front seats with a massage function, lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking, driver drowsiness monitoring, traffic sign recognition, a 16-speaker Meridian surround-sound system, HD Radio, and satellite radio. It’s also available with the 286-horsepower engine.

What Does Land Rover's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Land Rover offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles five years old or less and with fewer than 60,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. Land Rover extends its original new-car warranty to seven years from the original sale date or 100,000 miles for certified pre-owned vehicles. Every CPO Land Rover must pass a 165-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing, roadside assistance, and trip interruption benefits may be available, so read the Land Rover warranty page carefully.

2018 Range Rover Evoque Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2018 Range Rover Evoque or 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA?

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA is a good option if you’re hoping to get into a luxury subcompact SUV without breaking the bank. Its average list price is on the lower end for the class, while the Evoque’s is one of the highest in the segment. The GLA is also projected to be more reliable. When it comes to spirited driving dynamics, the GLA delivers, especially with its high-performance AMG trim. This Mercedes has a user-friendly infotainment system with available features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Between these two, the GLA is the clear winner unless you want a convertible or an off-roader.

Which Is Better: 2018 Range Rover Evoque or 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar?

If you like the Evoque but need something bigger, take a look at the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar, a luxury midsize SUV. The Velar will probably cost you a lot more than the Evoque, but it offers solutions to most of the Evoque’s faults. It has more refined driving dynamics, including a smoother transmission and a hushed ride. The Velar comes standard with Land Rover's updated and easier-to-use infotainment system. You’ll also get more cargo and seating space with the Velar. Unfortunately, both models have the same subpar predicted reliability rating.

2018 Evoque Performance

How Does the 2018 Range Rover Evoque Drive?

The 2018 Evoque features a turbocharged, 237-horsepower four-cylinder engine. In select trims, you can get a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that puts out 286 horsepower. Both engines produce brisk, effortless acceleration off the line or on the highway. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard with either engine. Shifts are mostly smooth, but the transmission sometimes hesitates to find the correct gear unless you’re using manual mode.

The Evoque isn't the quickest vehicle in the class, but it’s small turning radius makes it easy to maneuver and a joy to drive on winding roads. Its ride is somewhat firm but far from harsh.

Land Rover equips every Evoque with four-wheel drive and the Terrain Response 2 system, which automatically adjusts the suspension to the current road condition. The Evoque is the class leader in off-road ability, and it can traverse just about any terrain in its path.

  • Base engine: 237-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder
  • Available engine: 286-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder
  • Drivetrain: four-wheel drive
  • Transmission: nine-speed automatic
Does the 2018 Range Rover Evoque Get Good Gas Mileage?

The Evoque’s fuel economy estimates are lower than average for the class, but not by much.

  • 237-horsepower engine: 22/29 mpg city/highway
  • 286-horsepower engine: 21/29 mpg
2018 Range Rover Evoque Towing Capacity

The Evoque can tow up to 3,968 pounds when properly equipped.

2018 Evoque Interior

How Many People Does the 2018 Evoque Seat?

The four-door Evoque seats five, and the two-door convertible model seats four. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, but the back seats are small, and the sloped roofline limits rear outward visibility and rear headroom. It’s difficult to get in and out of both models, but the convertible’s rear seats are particularly challenging to enter and exit. The Range Rover Evoque has one of the most attractive cabins in the segment, with elegant styling and top-notch fit and finish.

Standard seating features:

  • leather upholstery
  • power-adjustable front seats

Available seating features:

  • upgraded leather upholstery
  • heated and ventilated front seats
  • massaging front seats
  • heated rear seats
  • heated steering wheel
How Many Child Car Seats Fit in the 2018 Range Rover Evoque?

The 2018 Evoque has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the rear outboard seats and an upper tether on the rear middle seat. The convertible model has two complete sets of rear-seat LATCH connectors, but there’s no middle seat.

2018 Range Rover Evoque Features

The infotainment system may be difficult for the driver to reach, but the menu structure is fairly intuitive. Unfortunately, the Evoque isn't available with some desirable tech features, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which you can get in some rivals.

  • Standard infotainment features: the InControl Touch infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, a USB port, and Bluetooth
  • Available infotainment features: HD Radio, satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, an upgraded infotainment system (InControl Touch Pro) with a 10-inch touch screen, and a 10- or 16-speaker Meridian audio system
  • Additional standard features: push-button start

2018 Range Rover Evoque Dimensions

Range Rover Evoque Cargo Space

The four-door Range Rover Evoque has 20.3 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up and 51 cubic feet with those seats folded. The two-door convertible has an 8.9-cubic-foot trunk, which is very small for the class. The four-door model’s cargo bay is about average for a luxury subcompact SUV. The Evoque’s sloping roofline also reduces usable cargo space, and there are few small-item storage spaces in the cabin. A hands-free power liftgate is available.

These cargo dimensions are for comparative purposes. There is no substitute for visually examining the storage area in any car you’re considering.
