Like most cars, it looks a lot better in the metal. It has a certain James Bond/stainless steel element to it. It's suave, modern and quite practical. It also comes in two and four-door forms, so it suits a somewhat broader spectrum of the market.
There's a range of petrol and diesel engines, including a 2.0-litre EcoBoost Si4 engine producing 177kW, or a TD4 2.2-litre turbo diesel producing 110kW or 140kW, depending on the trim level. With prices starting out as little as $53,395, the Evoque is sure to sell like hotcakes when it hits the market later this year.
The Evoque will be available in three different trim levels; the Pure, Dynamic and Prestige. Each of them present a slightly different personality and come with varying levels of equipment. Standard features include, at minimum, a five-inch TFT Driver Information Centre colour display, Bluetooth, climate control, as well as parking sensors and 17-inch alloy wheels.
