That strength comes largely from its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which delivers good power (240 horsepower, to be precise) while still achieving an estimated 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. Final EPA numbers haven't been confirmed, however.
But the smaller, turbocharged engine isn't the full story. Land Rover shaved weight from the Evoque to just 3,600 pounds--about a ton lighter than the larger Range Rovers. On top of that, each Evoque includes about 35 pounds of recycled plastics.
