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.
