The Evoque has caused a bit of a stir among Range Rover die-hards. It’s the first Range Rover without a low-range transfer case and the associated heavy-duty off-road ruggedness.
Everyone else however would seem to be pretty chuffed that the stunning LRX concept finally made production (earning it 2012 World Car Design of the Year). And with an entry price just over half that of the next-in-line Range Rover Sport.
The Evoque is based on the Freelander 2 platform, with a shorter and lower body over the same 2660mm wheelbase. The turbocharged 2.0 litre petrol Evoque Si4 Dynamic model tested here shares the honor of being sportiest in the Australian range with the three-door Coupe Dynamic.
