Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Owner Reviews (2)
Evoque Dynamic is superb

Took delivery of a top of the line Evoque Dynamic in December. In short, the first 1,000 miles have been a dream. The nine speed transmission is excellent, the torque quite amazing for such a small powerplant, it is a blast to drive, easy to handle, and exceptionally comfortable in the front. Yes, the back is smallish, especially if the front passengers are over six feet tall. But, if you're looking for a really good looking, well made, all weather mid-sized cross over, the Evoque may be just the ticket.
Avoid this one for sure

This is one for sure to avoid. It's not at all reliable and constantly in the shop for repairs. Yes I know it look dazzling and it is but the one very important issue is it's reliability is non-existent. This vehicle left us stranded 900 miles away form home and staring at a $3000.00 towing bill. In 23 months the vehicle has been in the shop 9 times for repairs.
WORST SUV I'VE OWNED

This car looks great standing still. The sound system is great, the seats firm and comfortable, the ride decent, great gadgets - high beam assist works like a wizard - I'm an engineer and the ability for the car to figure out when to turn on and off the high beams is quite cool. HOWEVER, I get similar mpg to my 4.2 liter V-8 BMW X-5 (about 2-3 mpg more), but with a gutless 4 cylinder. At a standstill, you floor it, count to two, then the car starts accelerating. Under 3000 rpm you get nothing. At 3000 rpm, the turbo kicks in and gives you too much. It's really an issue in traffic. At 30 mph in moderate traffic, you barely give it a little gas and it drops what feels like two *********** 3000 rpm, snaps your head back, you get off the gas, tap the break, and start over. It is enough to make me hate driving it. I believe Land Rover realized this, as well as the horrible gas mileage, and put a 9 speed in the 2014. It's sticker is 30 mpg highway instead of 28. After shelling out mid 60's for the Dynamic version, I find myself regretting the commitment I made. I called Land Rover to see if they would take it back, and they said it is operating as designed, so no. The head mechanic at the dealership explained to me there is way too much piping between the turbo and the engine, making the turbo lag worse. I have been driving on the gravel/snow program, which reduces the hard downshifts, but decreases acceleration as well. I have never owned a vehicle I paid more for, and also hated it any more than this one. Shame on Land Rover/Tata for selling such a poorly designed vehicle.
