2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Take the glossy, more urban side of the Allroad and amp it up, and you may find your way to the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. As a “coupelike crossover,” the Evoque manages to look at home in the city as no off-roader truly can. As with the Allroad, it's all car underneath; but Land Rover has worked a lot harder to make some real off-road components available at least for occasional use. You can dial in the type of surface with Terrain Response, or just zip around the city, with a strong 240-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four. In usefulness, most will find the Allroad the better bet for anything family-related; the Evoque is probably best kept for single folks and couples, as it's more of a tall five-door (or three-door) hatchback—just one with a rugged edge and a true Range Rover pedigree all around.

  1. Aside from the Outback (its configuration), the others compare more closely to the Audi Q5 which starts a lost $10 less than the Allroad. You could throw the Ford Edge/Lincoln MKX into the mix, too. About 18 months ago, I crossed shopped the Edge/MKX, Volvo, Evoque with the Q5 and came away with the Q5 as the winner. It has given 18 trouble-free months while averaging almost 24 mpg with it turbo four in all kinds of driving and I'm a somewhat aggressive driver who doesn't get left at the light. Had the option been available, I'd probably opted for the new diesel which Audi will have on the road here in the fall. I don't deny the allure of the Allroad, but the Q5 is, I think the better choice.

    Bad stuff?

     
  2. How about comparing the AllRoad with the 3 Series Sportwagon? Both are German vehicles with Teutonic characteristics. They're approximately the same in size, including passenger and cargo space. Comparable in price. I've owned them both, and think both offer that rare combination of great driving satisfaction and functional utility.
