underpinnings, but it feels very different to drive. How different? Well, Land Rover’s engineers wanted hot hatch and coupe drivers to be able to jump into this car and feel at home. They will. handling but ultimately, they’ve still been SUVs, both to drive and to look at. This model is different.
In all the ways that matter - space, off road ability, that commanding driving position - it’s a 4x4. Just as in all the ways that also matter - efficiency, cutting edge style and driving pleasure - it very definitely isn’t.
Contradictory qualities we’ve been waiting for all too long from a car of this kind.
That Land Rover has delivered them in a machine so fashionable, relevant and clever marks this Evoque out as a very desirable thing indeed, even at the expensive prices being asked.
If you can afford one and you can afford not to be too sensible in your choice of car, you won’t be disappointed.
