Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

THE Evoque might not be the most ca­pa­ble Land Rover, but you can’t fault the com­pany’s abil­ity to spot a niche. Af­ter all, who even knew they wanted a con­vert­ible SUV un­til the soft-top baby Range Rover came along?

Los­ing the roof has ac­tu­ally in­creased the Evoque’s weight thanks to the ex­tra body strength­en­ing re­quired, and this blunts per­for­mance. The boot is also tiny and prices are high; such are the sac­ri­fices one makes for driv­ing the most fash­ion­able SUV on sale. Price range: £45,250-£51,935 Our pick: TD4 SE Dy­namic (£45,250) En­gine: 2.0-litre 4cyl diesel, 178bhp Trans­mis­sion: 9-spd auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 121mph Econ­omy: 49.6mpg CO2: 149g/km
