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.
