2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs. Its Competition

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque (European spec)
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The Range Rover Evoque is, hands-down, our pick for the most attractive in the luxury crossover segment, but there are attractive alternatives with different capabilities, sizes, and features in a similar price range.

BMW's X6, for instance, is larger and perhaps more recognizable, though much of that recognition is based on its controversial, and to many, ugly shape; the X6 isn't appreciably better to drive, either.

Infiniti's QX70 (which used to be called the FX) is nearly as odd as the X6 in appearance; though it's a potent driver's car in V-8 form, it's also very expensive.

Audi's Q5 might be the most logical pick in this group, with competitive features, clean styling inside and out, but it comes off a bit flat-footed in performance and cool in execution.

Volvo's XC60 is more safety-conscious (at least in marketing), but also somewhat frumpier; BMW's X3 is fun and car-like in its own right, but not nearly as unique in appearance or feel as the Evoque.

Quick Specs
The 2014 Range Rover Evoque may not be as burly as its bigger brand-mates, but it's every bit as sophisticated and stylish.
The 2014 Audi Q5 gets quite serious about fuel economy with TDI power; it's still one of the most elegant, truly carlike luxury crossover SUVs.
The 2014 BMW X6 bends genres, in mostly successful ways; but whether you like it depends on what you're crossing over from.
The 2014 Infiniti QX60 is luxurious and full featured, while offering families a roomy, reconfigurable layout that makes good sense.
The 2014 Volvo XC60 keeps in sync with Volvo's reputation for safe, luxurious wagons–just in a taller crossover package.
