2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.9

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has a distinctive and colorful cabin full of premium, soft-touch surfaces, as well as some eco-friendly materials. While it doesn’t reach the quality of the larger Range Rover, its interior is still befitting the Land Rover name. Cargo space is typical among luxury subcompact SUVs, and while the rear seats are more spacious than in previous Evoques, they’re far from the roomiest in the class.

  • "Inside, the Evoque’s finish remains as rich as or richer than anything in this class, even with the leather-free options. The 'reductive' design theme generally streamlines and cleans things up." -- Autoweek
  • "The finishes and trim are upscale, with the dash, door panels, and center armrests were well padded even on our base-trim sample car. There's a new Eucalyptus fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, which it is not quite as rich-feeling as leather although it might assuage your green conscience." -- Autoblog
  • "The Evoque remains as distinctive, fashion-forward a design statement as you'll find in the SUV kingdom. That achievement is realized mostly on the strength of the Evoque's large, colorful -- and numerous -- displays, but also its varied and high-quality materials. Among modern production cars, only the Tesla Model 3 offers a more elemental interior, and Elon Musk's electric moonshot does so at the noticeable expense of ergonomics and convenience." -- CNET

Seating

The Evoque seats five people. Leather upholstery and 10-way power-adjustable front seats come standard. Upgraded leather upholstery is available, as are heated and ventilated front seats, 14- and 16-way power-adjustable front seats, massaging front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel.

The front seats are comfortable and roomy, but even though the redesigned Evoque has a little more rear-seat kneeroom than in previous models, taller back-seat passengers will still feel cramped. For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors on the rear outboard seats.

  • "Back in the physical world, Land Rover has given the Evoque a more spacious cabin that now includes a rear bench big enough to ferry around adults." -- Left Lane News
  • "The additional space between the axles has produced a welcome increase in rear-seat knee room, and redesigned mounts for the front seats allow for a bit more space for backseat passengers to wiggle their toes. A six-foot passenger can fit behind a similarly sized driver, but the Evoque remains less spacious than a BMW X1 or a Volvo XC40." -- Autoblog
  • However, while the interior feels plenty airy (especially when fitted with the panoramic roof) with front seat room, the rear seat remains tight for taller occupants." -- CNET

Interior Features

The base Evoque has a 10-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a navigation system, Bluetooth, a USB port, a six-speaker stereo, dual-zone automatic climate control, and push-button start. Some advanced safety features come standard too, such as front and rear parking sensors, traffic sign recognition, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, a driver condition monitor, and a rearview camera.

Options include a panoramic or sliding panoramic roof, a second 10-inch touch screen, a 10- or 14-spearker Meridian sound system, satellite radio, proximity keyless entry, and Land Rover’s Activity Key, which is a waterproof wristband that lets you lock or unlock your vehicle. More safety features are available as well, including a surround-view parking camera, safe exit assist, high-speed emergency braking, wading depth sensors, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and parallel and perpendicular park assist.

Most critics agree that the updated InControl infotainment system represents a step up from the outgoing system. The touch screens feature crisp graphics and respond quickly to inputs. However, the placement of those screens, and their small icons, means you may have to look away from the road for long periods of time to complete tasks. A 12.3-inch virtual cockpit is available, replacing the traditional instrument cluster with a digital one.

  • The new Evoque's interior is modern and minimalist. . . . Although sleekly handsome, the minimalism goes a bit too far by banishing the radio tuning knob, and the touch surfaces would benefit from some audible or haptic feedback." -- Autoblog
  • The Evoque's new dashboard is dominated by InControl Touch Pro Duo, Land Rover's latest and greatest infotainment system. … With crisp graphics and a clean layout, ICTPD is a massive improvement over the outgoing Evoque's system, though there are still discernible moments of lag between finger press and on-screen action. In any case, it's nice to be able to have the navigation playing on the upper screen while leaving the lower display for audio or HVAC chores, and a user-definable home screen helps keep things manageable. A crisp new full-color head-up display and a 12.3-inch fully digital gauge cluster are optional, adding substantially to both the configurability and tech-forward feel of the cabin." -- CNET
  • The screens look great and are quick to respond to your inputs. But the two-screen setup's location and layout make it distracting to use. You have to take your eyes off the road to really see anything on the screens, and the icons are small and hard to spot at a glance. Some knobs and buttons reside directly behind the gear lever; you'll have a hard time using them to make climate or radio-volume adjustments on the fly." -- Edmunds

Cargo

The Evoque has 21.5 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. Folding them down opens up 50.5 cubic feet of space. While that’s a bit more room than older Evoque models had, it’s typical among luxury subcompact SUVs.

  • Cargo room has improved slightly, but remains a modest 21.5 cubic feet (expandable to 50.5 with the rear seats folded)." -- CNET
  • This cargo space isn't exactly cavernous, but it's on par with the segment and enough for a few large suitcases. The mild hybrid model's batteries are located under the front seats, so its cargo space is unchanged. Similar-size competitors include the Audi Q3, the BMW X2 and the Mercedes GLA." -- Edmunds
  • A redesigned rear suspension yields a bit more cargo space, now 21.5 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 50.5 with them folded, which puts the Evoque's cargo hold about on par with the coupe-like BMW X2." -- Autoblog
