The segment of the crossover coupes is an odd one but when you see the 2013 Range Rover Evoque, you will really not care about the other half sporty and SUV-ish vehicles in the market. This creation of Land Rover is really nice to look at, it is quite comfortable to sit in, and is pretty quick.
You can get the 2013 Evoque as a five-door or a three-door version. It is the least expensive ride you can get from Range Rover with the entry-level model starting at $42,000. That is actually cheaper by as much as $2,000 than the 2012 MY. Land Rover introduced a Pure trim that allowed for the lower pricing without sacrificing much on the equipment.
In the engine bay of the Evoque is a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with a turbocharger. The engine can give out 240 horsepower, and this power is transferred to the wheels via a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Driving the Evoque is pretty much like driving a car. It is pretty light and nimble on the road. Do not under estimate the Evoque since it is also capable off-road with the brand’s Terrain Response technology that helps it adjust to different surfaces. The 2013 model also comes with off-road nav features and MagneRide dampers.
If you love the exterior of the Evoque, you will love the interior more. Everything is made of high quality materials and the dashboard has a nice layout. The front cabin also has a generous amount of space even for tall occupants. The rear seats can get pretty tight especially with the three-door model. The Evoque is a small crossover so do not expect a generous room for your luggage as well.
Prices start at around $42,000 and goes up as you add more features, equipment or when you upgrade its looks.
