Take a look at the two Autoexpress and the Top Gear Video above to see what a polished all-rounder the Evoque is!
Here we have a truly super Range Rover Evoque Dynamic Si4 Auto 5 Door finished in the extra cost (£550) Indus Silver with contrasting two tone Grey and Ivory Hide. Its travelled just 8,981 miles from new by one lady owner and is in excellent order throughout!
It has a full Land Rover Service History visiting supplying main dealer workshop @3,101 miles, 5,645 miles and last serviced at 7,935 miles in May of this year.
The Si4 Dynamic is the only Petrol and also the most powerful model in the entire Evoque model range boasting a 4 cylinder 2.0ltr Turbocharged engine pushing out 237bhp and 251Ib/ft Torque. The fastest Evoque wth 0-60 coming up in just 7.1 seconds.
Its full fat four-wheel-drive system (The eD4 model is front wheel drive only if you didn’t know) but with a trick transmission which disconnects drive to the rear wheels when cruising to help reduce fuel consumption. We achieved 31mpg on our return trip from collecting this Evoque, which is more than reasonable for a mid size 4 wheel drive performance SUV and a lot more economical than its big brothers the Range Rover Sport and Range Rover! In my personal opinion the petrol version feels more sporting and refined to drive too than the Diesel models yet not a lot less economical and the Si4 would be my choice for sure!
The Dynamic specification is top of the range Including Touch Screen Sat Nav, Dual Climate Control, Heated Electrically Operated Front Seats with 3 Position Drivers Memory, Bluetooth, Cruise Control, Parking Sensors (with Rear View Camera), Heated Front Screen, Headlamp Washers, Meridian Sound System, Touch Screen Multifunction Display, Multifunction Steering Wheel and Electric Mirrors and Keyless Entry. An ipod and USB connector are both fitted. It also has the optional Park Assist too (£460) It also features Landrovers acclaimed Electronic Terrain Response System of course!
What the magazines say!
When the Evoque was launched in 2011, it caused a major stir in the crossover class, and even after four years in dealers and thousands of cars sold, its concept car looks still manage to turn most heads. The slab sides and small windows mean it appears sportier than the Q3, even though it’s taller, while the black window pillars and clamshell bonnet are a modern update to the traditional Range Rover look.
The ride and handling people have pulled off something a bit special here. The Evoque might be a Rangie, but there’s nothing wallowy about the way it corners. It attacks windy roads like an excited hot hatch, but still rides with the class of its big brother. This is a very well-rounded machine, and although purists might think it’s some fancy bit of chintz, it’s still a grafter when the road turns brown. Or white. Or yellow. We’ve driven the Evoque to the Scottish Highlands, across an Icelandic glacier and over mammoth dunes in Dubai. And it didn’t slip up once. Then we took it to Las Vegas, where it cruised quietly around the neon jungle and drew a bigger crowd than Siegfried and Roy.
A fast 4×4 may seem a bit of a contradiction but the Range Rover Evoque 2.0 Si4 can zap country lanes with ease.
The 236bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine is quick and provides a spread of power across the rev range all the way to the 6000rpm red line. In normal driving mode cruising on motorways is fine and there is plenty of punch under your right foot to overtake slower middle-lane traffic.
Get out a clear road, and it’s time to push down and twist the central gear selector to Sport mode. That’s when the Evoque becomes really responsive. Any slight change in pressure to the accelerator pedal causes the revs to instantly rise and fall.
Combine this with the steering-mounted paddleshifters and it becomes a really engaging driving experience as you speed from corner to corner. The broad spread of power ensures you don’t have to constantly change gear to be ready to overtake or build speed after exiting a tight corner.
The steering is quick to provide directional changes and it is easy to plot a line through a corner. You can’t feel what the front wheels are doing but there is a lot of grip, not least because of the four-wheel drive.
It’s fair to say that the Evoque Si4 feels best when going for it down a tight twisty lane. It takes just seven seconds to get from rest to 60mph and it’ll go on to a top speed of 135mph if you keep your right foot flat to the floor.
For those of a more relaxed disposition, it will be heartening to hear that the sharp handling has not compromised ride quality. It remains admirably smooth on bumpy and potholed roads and in normal drive mode it quietly gets on with the business of ensuring you are in the right gear to maximise fuel efficiency.
As you would expect of a premium brand, sitting inside the Evoque is a sumptuous place to be. The driver does have a lot of controls to play with especially on the steering wheel (cruise control, telephone, audio and car set-up info plus the paddle-shifters)
