2018 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.8

The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has a premium interior. It looks great, and it's built with top-notch materials. The front seats are a great place to spend time, but the rear seats are a tighter squeeze in either body style. Cargo space is virtually nonexistent in the convertible, but it's adequate in the four-door. There are a lot of available driver assistance features, and the infotainment system is generally user-friendly.

  • "The all-wheel-drive Evoque has several characteristics that set it apart from the competition. Perhaps the most notable is its interior, which features excellent build quality, fine materials and pleasing aesthetics. Even in base trim, 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
  • "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 (2017)
  • "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)

Seating

The Evoque seats five in the four-door body style and four in the convertible body style. It comes standard with leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats. Upgraded leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, massaging front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel are available.

The front seats are supportive and comfortable, but driver visibility is somewhat limited by the roofline. That sloping roof also negatively impacts rear-seat headroom, and the rear seats can be tough to get into and out of – especially in the convertible.

There are two full sets of LATCH connectors for installing car seats. The system is not easy to use. The lower anchors are hard to find, and the moderately cramped rear seats mean some car seats won't fit easily. The LATCH connectors are easier to use in the convertible.

  • "Interior room and visibility are sacrificed for the striking silhouette." -- Consumer Reports
  • "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 … 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 (2017)
  • 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 (2017)

Interior Features

Standard features in the Range Rover Evoque include push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, 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 and navigation.

Available features include HD Radio, satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 10- or 16-speaker Meridian audio system, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, autonomous emergency braking, traffic sign recognition, driver drowsiness monitoring, a surround-view camera, automatic parallel and perpendicular park assist, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and an upgraded infotainment system (InControl Touch Pro) with a 10-inch touch screen.

The Evoque offers high-quality sound from the Meridian audio systems – especially the 16-speaker setup. The infotainment system controls may not be for everybody, but most should find them easy to use. The only real downside is that they are a little far from the driver's seat. The infotainment system's menu layout is intuitive.

  • Controls are a bit quirky." -- Consumer Reports
  • "Remote rotary dials and touchpads have become the preferred interface of navigating an infotainment system, but the Evoque's touchscreen menu is pretty easy and intuitive to use. The location of the touchscreen within the dash can require a bit of a stretch at times, but it isn't a deal-breaker." -- Edmunds
  • "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 Range Rover Evoque provides 20.3 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats up and 51 cubic feet with the seats folded. The two-door convertible has an 8.9-cubic-foot trunk. The convertible's cargo total is abysmal for the class, but the four-door’s is in the middle of the pack.

Both models might offer a bit more room were it not for the sloping roofline, which limits space and makes it harder to fit bulky items. There's not much small-item storage space in the cabin either. A hands-free power liftgate is available.

  • "The Evoque Convertible is a sport-utility vehicle, but only in name. It does the 'sport' thing pretty well, but 'utility' is a joke. The trunk is more a rear cubby, and not a very accessible one at that." -- 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 (2017)
  • 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)
