Which Range Rover Evoque does Edmunds recommend?

As far as the regular Evoque goes, we'd opt for the upgraded engine. It's only available on two trims, however. Although we like the Autobiography's ultra-luxury feature set, we'd save a few bucks and choose the HSE Dynamic trim instead.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

Subcompact luxury crossovers have grown in popularity over the last few years in part due to their relatively low cost. While many vehicles in this class are similarly priced, the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover bucks convention and costs almost as much as larger compact crossovers. Still, the Evoque's substantial list of standard features and superior off-road performance could make it worth the financial stretch for the right buyer.

Another Evoque highlight is the stylish, expressive design. Most small luxury crossovers lack a sense of style, but the Evoque's sleek exterior sets it apart. If you really want to stand out from the crowd, the Evoque also offers a drop-top variant. It's the only luxury SUV convertible on sale today.

From a logical standpoint, rivals such as the Audi Q3, BMW X3 and Cadillac XT4 deliver more value for your money. But if you don't mind paying a little extra, the Evoque's seductive sheet metal, impressive standard features and off-road prowess should make this small SUV pretty enticing.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque models

The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a subcompact luxury SUV sold in two body styles: as a conventional four-door or a two-door convertible.

Every model is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. By default, it produces 237 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque. A more powerful version of this engine — producing 286 hp and 295 lb-feet — is available on HSE Dynamic and Autobiography trims. All-wheel drive is standard.

Standard exterior equipment on the base SE trim level includes 18-inch wheels, automatic wipers, heated and power-folding mirrors, keyless ignition, front and rear parking sensors, and a rearview camera with trailer hitch guidance. Inside, you'll find power-adjustable front seats, leather upholstery, a 60/40-split rear seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, dual-zone climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, and an eight-speaker audio system with a USB port.

The SE also boasts Land Rover's suite of off-road technology features, which includes hill descent control; All-Terrain Progress Control, which acts like a low-speed cruise control; and the Terrain Response system, which adjusts how the vehicle behaves for preset settings such as Gravel, Snow, and Mud and Ruts.

One step up is the SE Premium, which adds xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, foglights, auto-dimming exterior mirrors, a panoramic glass roof, a hands-free liftgate, keyless entry, memory settings for the front seats, and perforated leather upholstery.

Think of the Landmark Edition as a variant of the SE Premium that prioritizes style. It comes with 19-inch wheels and the more aggressive exterior design from costlier trim levels, along with different interior trim.

The HSE reverts to the SE Premium's bodywork and adds 19-inch wheels, automatic high-beam control, upgraded leather upholstery, heated front seats, configurable ambient lighting, and blind-spot monitoring. Also included are a 10.2-inch touchscreen and an 11-speaker audio system.

The HSE Dynamic adds revised exterior styling and trim details as well as unique wheels.

The top-of-the-line Autobiography rolls on 20-inch wheels and boasts adaptive LED headlights and a heated windshield. There are other perks such as upgraded front seats, a heated rear seat, a heated steering wheel, extended leather upholstery, a 17-speaker audio system, an automated parking system, a surround-view parking camera system, lane keeping assist, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

Many of the extra features found on the upper trim levels can be added to the lower trims through a variety of option packages.

The Convertible's two trim levels mirror those of the four-door's with a few exceptions. The SE Dynamic is largely the same as the four-door SE. Differences include driver-seat memory settings, a wind deflector, and the 10.2-inch touchscreen with the 11-speaker stereo system. The HSE Dynamic matches the upgrades fitted to the four-door HSE Dynamic with negligible differences.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible (turbo 2.0L inline-4 | 9-speed automatic | AWD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2017, the current Range Rover Evoque has received some revisions, including a new, less powerful base engine, a more potent optional engine, and a new tech interface. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Range Rover Evoque, however.

Scorecard

Overallundefined / 5

Driving

The Evoque convertible offers some off-roading capability, but typical buyers won't be seeking it out for off-path exploration. Instead, this SUV delivers a unique combination of sporty handling dynamics, a commanding road view and top-down freedom.

Comfort

As with many convertibles, the Evoque sacrifices some top-up sound insulation for drop-top fun. The convertible top blocks out wind noise exceptionally well, and the ride quality is surprisingly good. But squeaks seem to find their way into the cabin when driving on bumpy roads.

Seat comfort

The front seats are cushy and offer a good amount of support and adjustability. They are even suitable for more spirited driving. Perforated leather seats provide adequate breathability, even without powered ventilation. The rear seats aren't as comfortable. Oddly, the Evoque lacks outboard armrests in back.

Ride comfort

The Evoque offers decent ride comfort, even over fairly rough roads. It's impressive considering how well this SUV handles when going around turns.

Noise & vibration

On bumpy roads, you'll hear squeaks coming from the doorjambs and convertible roof seals. It's expected and forgivable to a degree in convertibles and can be drowned out by the stereo. There is also some road noise that creeps into the cabin, but wind noise is minimal.

Climate control

The climate features all function well and provide nice temperature modulation. The controls are clearly laid out with dual dials for temperature adjustment and buttons for vent control and defrost functions.

Interior

The compact Evoque has more interior space to offer than what appears. Its touchscreen infotainment, while easy to use, requires a bit of a stretch to reach the controls closer to the passenger side. And for those who are less limber, getting in and out — especially when it comes to the back seat) requires an above-average effort.

Utility

The Evoque convertible is a sport-utility vehicle but only in name. It does the "sport" thing pretty well, but "utility" is a joke. The trunk is more a rear cubby, and not a very accessible one at that. Storage for small items within the cabin is scant.

Small-item storage

Small-item storage is scarce, limited to a modest armrest bin and narrow door pockets. There are a couple of cupholders for the driver and front passenger, plus a small bin concealed behind the center console that isn't that useful.

Cargo space

The rear trunk of the convertible is laughable. It's a deep cubby with a capacity of 8.8 cubic feet that requires you to bend at an awkward level to load and unload items. That could cause some ergonomic strain, especially for those with back issues.

Child safety seat accommodation

LATCH anchors are easily located and accessed under plastic flip covers. But maneuvering a car seat into and out of the back seat is more difficult in the two-door convertible versus the four-door hardtop.

Technology

There are a lot of driving aids, some of which are optional and ones we recommend. If you plan to drive with the top up a fair amount, the surround-view camera and blind-spot systems will save a lot of headache. We experienced some issues with the touchscreen, voice controls and phone integration.

Smartphone integration

Bluetooth pairing worked as it should, but at times the system wouldn't recognize our smartphone when connecting through the USB cable. We had to disconnect and reconnect to resolve the issue.

Driver aids

Adaptive cruise control works decently in bringing you to a complete stop, but it isn't the best at managing traffic gaps. Lane keeping assist applies mild steering corrections but is ineffective on curved roads. The forward collision warning system provides just the right amount of warning.

2 out of 5 stars, Very Disappointing Ride on Many Levels
Dan Cazukos,
SE 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 9A)

The transmission is horrendous around town. On the highway it’s fine. Otherwise rough shifting and jerking. It has the ZF 9HP transmission which is known to have this issue, it’s been around a long time but has never been fixed. Other bugs are road/wind noise from mirrors, poor storage space, nowhere convenient to put your phone, poor placement of USB ports, seats don’t hug you, the heated windshield option is very irritating and messes with your sight, no Apple CarPlay support, no wireless charging, weak headlights. Didn’t even come standard with universal garage remote or memory seats. The options, safety and tech you get at the SE level are an awful value, you’d get much better tech and options on almost any other brand. What is Land Rover thinking? Very uncompetitive - will be my first and last Land Rover. At least the design is nice (yet getting stale).

2 out of 5 stars, Horrible Ride on 2019 SE!!!
Steve,
SE 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 9A)

Safety

Our experts’ favorite Range Rover Evoque safety features:

All-Terrain Progress Control
Holds your speed at a preset target between 1 and 18 mph on unpaved roads. Think of it as off-road cruise control.
Park Assist
Steers for you while parallel or perpendicular parking. All you have to do is use the gas and brake pedals.
Blind-Spot Monitor
Notifies you during a lane change if a vehicle is in your blind spot or quickly approaching from behind.

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs. the competition

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs. BMW X3

As a compact luxury crossover, the BMW X3 is naturally larger than the Evoque, even though the two have nearly identical price tags. Redesigned just last year, the X3 earns high marks for its roomy interior, comfortable seats and user-friendly infotainment interface. Its exterior design is less flashy than the Evoque's, but there's no doubt the X3 is more practical.

Compare Land Rover Range Rover Evoque & BMW X3 features

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs. Volvo XC40

Like the Evoque, the Volvo XC40 is a subcompact crossover that prioritizes style over ultimate passenger comfort. Backseat passengers won't have much room, but drivers will appreciate the XC40's quick acceleration, cushy ride and unique interior design. Its base price is also many thousands of dollars less than a similarly equipped Evoque.

Compare Land Rover Range Rover Evoque & Volvo XC40 features

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs. Audi Q5

The Audi Q5 is a compact luxury crossover redesigned for the 2018 model year. Even though the Q5 costs the same as its chief rivals, its high-quality interior materials and high-tech cabin make it feel more expensive. The Q5 suffers from lackluster performance characteristics, but it excels in just about every other area.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
