Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5
  • Large enough for small families
  • Boot space has grown over old model
  • Still less room inside than most rivals

How much space is there?

The old Evoque was a bit of a struggle for families, really. But this latest Evoque is much better in this regard – it’s pretty much the same size as the old one on the outside, but thanks to a longer wheelbase, it offers more space inside than before, especially in the rear.

It’s roomy for front-seat passengers, but the rear is a tight fit for those over six foot. Headroom’s not bad, even with a glass roof fitted.

There are decent storage cubbies in the door bins, centre console and underneath the rear armrest, plus two cupholders. At the rear, door bins are equally generous and large enough for 500ml bottles.

Boot space and storage

The Range Rover is capable of carrying up to 591 litres with the rear seats up, and 1,383 litres with them down. That compares with 525/1,430 litres for the BMW X4, 432/1,308 for the Volvo XC40, and 530/1,525 for the Audi Q3.

In other words, if you’re looking at the Evoque as a load-lugging family car, it’s not really at a disadvantage compared with its rivals anymore. That’s good news for families who might have struggled with the last Evoque.

Is it easy to park?

Like any other SUV, the Range Rover Evoque is larger than a typical family hatchback. It’s also pretty wide, something worth considering if you’re an urban dweller.

It’s not the best thing to see out of, with narrow windows and thick pillars, but there are parking sensors, various cameras and automatic parking functions available as options if you’re worried.

Safety

  • Extensive safety equipment fitted as standard
  • Two Isofix points on the rear seats
  • Five-star Euro NCAP safety rating

The Range Rover Evoque comes with a list of safety features, resulting in a five star rating from Euro NCAP.

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) 
  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)
    This system reduces the risk of skidding on the road by limiting engine torque and applying the brakes to the appropriate wheels to correct the skid.
  • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
    Automatically varies the braking force to each axle in order to minimise stopping distance, while still maintaining stability and the vehicle’s ability to steer.  
  • Electronic Traction Control (ETC)
    Reduces torque to the spinning wheel, then applies braking to the wheel, if required.
  • Cornering Brake Control (CBC)
    Automatically varies the braking force to each wheel when the vehicle’s brakes are applied around a corner and the limit of grip is reached. The system will prevent the vehicle’s wheels from locking up and skidding.
  • Roll Stability Control (RSC)
    Integrated with DSC to reduce the possibility of rollover, while providing agility and ability to steer around obstacles.
  • Emergency Brake Assist (EBA)
    Boosts the brake pressure through the ABS system to ensure you stop efficiently in an emergency situation.
  • Emergency Stop Signal
    Automatically activates the hazard warning lights during emergency braking.
  • Isofix and airbags
    Two Isofix points for baby/child seat restraints are fitted on each side of the rear seats. Six airbags including driver, passenger, side curtain and thorax airbags are standard to protect occupants.

One feature fitted here that’s also making its way onto other Land Rover vehicles is a small blind-spot indicator that illuminates on each of the rear doors, warning of any approaching vehicles behind you. This aims to prevent rear passengers from opening them onto any overtaking vehicles.

Adaptive cruise control continues to be available on the Evoque, but our experience with it was far from relaxed, thanks to its abrupt responses to vehicles ahead of you. The system simply slams on the brakes as you approach the detected vehicle, regardless of what your preferred distance setting is. There are far better systems out there.
