Range Rover Evoque 5 door

Last Updated:

This is one good looking SUV/crossover.
The only engine available in the US will be the 2.0 Liter with 236hp.
Europe also gets a couple of diesels with 150 or 190hp.

This makes every other models in the Land Rover show room look ancient.

The larger LR2 starts at around $36 000 over here. Let’s hope this smaller model stays close to $30 000.

  1. Vince, you have no idea what heritage means, do you?

    I am just a happy camper that you don't run a single manufacturer, because vehicles would NEVER be refreshed and there would be no styling cohesion with anything.

  2. "This makes every other models in the Land Rover show room look ancient."

    Not ancient enough. They should bring the Defender back to USA. Every other Landie looks like it probably belongs to a dentist.

  3. It would sell well in the mid 30k's to mid 40k's, and that'll probably be with FWD. The AWD would do well in the mid-40k's, but then again, Land Rover thinks its name is worth more then that, so I'm guessing tht this'll come in at 45k base for the FWD, 55k for the AWD. It is shorter then the Audi Q5 (which is pretty small), about the size of an A3, so there is no way they can sell this higher then the Range (80-120k) or the Rover Sport (65-85k)

    I personally believe it's closest comparison is to the Mini Countryman, which the Range beats in every dimension but price(the countrymen starts at 22k.)

    I think this looks better then the two door, and the matching body-colored roof looks better then the white one, very sharp!!!

  4. Aren't they owned by Tata now? There must be a reason the Brits sold them to BMW who sold them to Ford who then sold them to India. Think I'll pass on this skanky brand.

  5. A few years ago, I would have thought that this was amazing. Hyundai, Kia and even Ford have raised the bar for design, and for a SUV in this price range I would expect it to look better than a Ford Explorer or a Kia Sorrento.

  6. "Stays close to $30000" ??????

    It will start at $48000. Its much much nicer than the LR2. I should know since i own one.

    I mean, have you seen the interior photos? It is clearly not entry level.

  7. A four cylinder? No freaking way. Is this supposed to compete with an economy SUV like a Hyundai or CRV? They really need to offer a 6 at least. I like the style, but the mechanicals (FWD???) seem very feeble.
