2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque SUV Pure 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

We have had our Evoque for 1 year now. I can't get it away from my wife. This car is such fun to drive and we have never had any issues with it. I can tell you unless something drastic changes we will be purchasing another one in 2 years. Quick and maneuverable are 2 words that come to mind. Plenty of power and zip.


Best Features

Style and the "fun" factor.

2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque SUV Pure Plus 2dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I have had my RR Evoque for over a month now, and get quite a few looks. A drastic improvement over the BMW's, Lexus, and Infinity round SUV's out there. A classy, fun to drive alternative. Handles great in the snow, getting 26mpg combined, and making going to work a pleasure.


Best Features

Looks, handling and gas mileage.

Review

I got the Dynamic because I liked its sportier looks, but I cannot get over how much I HATE the transmission programming. Around 30 mph if you are maintaing speed in traffic and give it just a little gas, it drops a gear, jumps the rpm's to 3000, the turbo kicks in, you yank your foot back off and try to slowly accelerate. HORRIBLE, especially for a >$60k vehicle. I have never had a more jerky ride, and it is making me hate this vehicle. And on top of that, my tail lights filled with condensation after the first car wash. 6 months later, I am still waiting for the "new improved ones coming out in 2014." Kind of ruins that look of quality and prestige...


Best Features

The vehicle handles well, the seats are comfortable, the sound system (Meridian) pumps out great bass, and the vehicle just looks fast while parked. I love the way the Dynamic, especially, looks. It's why I bought it instead of a Q5.


Worst Features

Well, I already see they realized the transmission was wrong, as they changed it in the 2014. However, I am stuck with a jerky version with a bad program. I had the dealer upgrade the program, which improved max highway mpg from 22 mpg to 25mpg. This is not using your brakes, on cruise at 68mph average over 20 miles. My 4.2L V8 BMW X-5 got 23 mpg on the same tests. Having half the engine and none of the guts gets me a couple mpg?? NOT WORTH IT. With 9,000 miles, I average 22.5 mpg in 90% highway driving, and I play a game to see how high I can get my mpg, and this is all I can get. I averaged 21 mpg in my X-5 driving the same route.

Review

I liked this SUV because it was different than the competition in style (e.g. A5, X3, etc.). Also, I need a vehicle that does operate off road in a serious manner, and all the reviews says this one can while the others cannot. I really like how this drives and handles. Was excellent in recent snow storm, and gets looks from other drivers because it's pretty cool on the outside.


Best Features

Looks, off-road capability, and good stability at high speeds on highway, sharp handling, good back seat leg room, fit and finish.


Worst Features

Like reviews said, 6 speed transmission either slow to respond, or you get immediate turbo kick. Needs to be smoothed out. 2014 supposed to have 9 speed auto, so that may solve problem. In my 6 speed auto, driving on "sport" mode seems to solve my problem. Base vehicle costing $46K should have homelink and driving lights.

Review

Bought car january 2 from Patrick jaguar Naperville. Car towed one week later. All warning lights on, car would not shift to another gear, power steering did not work. Took one week to repair replace module. Complained to land rover and received $500 land rover certificates. Scheduled service appt. today because neither smart key worked. Tried to start car and would not start. Car towed again. Called land rover prior to appt. stated I had received one time certificate before and car under warranty. Did not offer help? Worst service I have had from a luxury car. Regret purchase. Will not buy again. My husband was considering jaguar. After this service changed mind.


Best Features

Outside looks nice


Worst Features

Termpermntal, does not like cold seatbelts hard to buckle in front latch sits to far down, windows sit to far up-hard to use ATM or drive up
