2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs. Its Competition

Compared to pretty much any other luxury crossover on the market, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque adds more style—and a dramatically different style at that.

Although it may be the most stylish, there are definitely some alternatives with different capabilities, sizes, and features, in a similar price range.

The BMW X4 occupies a similar space, mimicking the shape of the larger X6, but based on the more practically shaped X3.

It, predictably, offers a good mix of handling and comfort but sacrifices some space and usability in back for the profile.

The Infiniti QX50, formerly called the EX, is a surprisingly sporty vehicle—feeling like a sport sedan from the driver's seat—and now has more seating space, as it's gained wheelbase for 2016.

Stepping back to somewhat more practical models, the Audi Q5 might be the pick for that, as its competitive features, clean styling inside and out, and an SQ5 performance variant make it quite the quick, versatile wagon.

And on the very safety-conscious (but not entirely boring) side, the Volvo XC60 remains a strong contender, provided you don't make flamboyance your top priority.
