2014 Range Rover Evoque Review
  • Improved fuel economy; mostly excellent auto; satisfying to drive; conceptual exterior design; stylish and functional interior; proper off-road ability
  • Rear-view camera not standard; long options list; auto’s downshifts not always the quickest; not a huge financial stretch to stronger-performing SUVs; some turbo lag detectable

7.5 / 10
