Defining the niche of coupe-like luxury crossovers is no easy thing, but at least two vehicles make it their life mission.
The BMW X6 landed from its peculiar planet first, and yes, it does feel a little like a BMW underneath, but it's not much better to drive than an X5, and loses lots of interior space in the process.
The Infiniti FX strikes out on its own styling tangents, with wavelike details on its bubbly shape adding up to something a little cartoonish.
Better to compare the Evoque to the more forthright utes like Audi's heavy, not so nimble and rather plain Q5; the lovely Evoque cousin preoccupied with safety, the Volvo XC60; and even the latest BMW X3, a rorty performer with much more cabin space and much more 3-Series baked into it this time around.
