2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Safety

8.0
Safety
Though it's entering its second year on the market, the 2013 Land Rover Ranger Rover Evoque hasn't yet been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS).

Our score, therefore, is based on the Evoque's safety features, including: front, side, and curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes; traction and stability control; and user-selectable all-wheel drive with trailer stability assist and hill-descent control. The latter two features rely on the Evoque's anti-lock braking system to enhance vehicle stability in more extreme driving (especially off-road) or towing conditions. New for 2013, the optional Park Assist system offers automated parking, and off-road navigation is added to enhance travel off the beaten path.

Hands-free phone operation is easy with standard Bluetooth. A standard rearview camera and rear parking sensors makes backing up easier. An optional surround-view camera enhances the view further, and blind-spot detection is available for highway lane-changes. These two optional extras are worth looking at, as the Evoque's high-rise rear end, rear headrests, and rear pillars can impair visibility.

The 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque hasn't yet been crash-tested, but it carries a full set of safety equipment.

Not that visibility in general isn't very good--it is. Just beware the view out the back.
