Why Lease The Range Rover Evoque?

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Review 2021

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a small, premium SUV with some of the fanciest 4x4 tech on the market. 

Featuring a high-class interior and more off-road ability than you'll ever need, the Range Rover Evoque is an excellent lease alternative to rivals such as the Audi Q3, BMW X2, Volvo XC40 and Mercedes GLA.

Our Range Rover Evoque review covers:

Range Rover Evoque Key Features

  • Sporty, chiselled body style with huge headlights
  • Spacious and high-quality interior with upmarket fabrics
  • 591-litre boot, which expands to 1,383 litres with rear seats down
  • Two diesel, three petrol and a plug-in hybrid engine available
  • Range of trims including R-Dynamic, S, SE, HSE, HST and Autobiography

Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The Evoque may be the smallest Range Rover model, but its chiselled body style certainly makes it stand out from the crowd. Inspired by the Range Rover Velar, the Evoque's huge sharp headlights give this small SUV a sporty look, while its eye-catching angles and proportions make it instantly recognisable on the road. 


Unlike the old Evoque, the latest generation model comes with five doors as standard, instead of three, making it easy for passengers to get in and out of the back, hence its appeal with growing families.

There's also enough space in the back for six-foot-tall adults to ride comfortably, and the seats are nice and supportive. However, the Evoque's sloping roof does mean that rivals such as the Volvo XC40 and Audi Q3 boast better headroom and rear space.

In terms of boot space, the Range Rover Evoque has 591 litres on offer, which is excellent compared to the BMW X2's 470 litres. You can also expand the boot capacity to 1,383 litres if you fold the rear seats down, which can be split in a 40:20:40 configuration by a simple handle in the boot. 

The Evoque also comes with plenty of practicality-boosting accessories such as seat-back stowage, a rubber boot mat and a cover to protect the rear bumper when loading and unloading luggage. 

Interior and Trims

Inside, the Range Rover Evoque's interior is equally as appealing as its stylish exterior. Its shiny, minimalist dashboard features glossy trims around the slender air vents and the central infotainment display. You also get a single 10-inch touchscreen as standard, which looks more futuristic than the basic controls you get in the BMW X2 and Audi Q3.

A range of trims are available with a generous specification as standard, including 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, Bluetooth and DAB radio on the entry-level model. 

The Evoque S models come with 18-inch alloy wheels, heated leather seats and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. SE models add a 360-degree parking camera, a Touch Pro Duo dual-screen infotainment system and 20-inch alloy wheels.

R-Dynamic models boast an enhanced exterior and interior style with perforated leather seats and a host of dark satin and copper styling touches. The range-topping HSE R-Dynamic adds 20-inch alloy wheels, a powered tailgate, premium LED headlights, high beam assist and keyless entry and start. 

A luxury Autobiography model is also available and comes kitted out with a panoramic sunroof, 21-inch alloy wheels, four-zone climate control, 24-way heated and cooled seats, a 360-degree camera and a Meridian stereo.

Power and Performance

Under the bonnet, the Range Rover Evoque is available with two diesel engines, three petrol engines and a plug-in hybrid variant, two or four-wheel drive and a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic gearbox.


Diesel options include a D165 2.0-litre turbocharged with 163bhp and a D200 version with 201bhp, ideal for drivers who cover many miles. 

Petrol engines include the P200 2.0-litre turbocharged with 197bhp, the P250 2.0-litre with 246bhp and the top-spec P300 2.0-litre engine, which offers hot-hatch levels of performance with 300bhp.

A P300e plug-in hybrid is also available, combining a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol unit which powers the front wheels, with a 107bhp electric motor which controls the rear wheels, for a respectable 197bhp. 

Out on the road, the Range Rover Evoque is as happy cruising to the shops as it is clawing its way up rugged farm tracks, thanks to its fantastic driving aids, such as Land Rover's Terrain Response 2 system. 

For those who mainly drive around town, the 2WD model is best suited, making for a leisurely drive thanks to its wide range of tech, including a clever camera system that lets you manoeuvre in tight spaces without scraping the alloy wheels on tall kerbs.

Stephen Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 2.0 D165 R-Dynamic 2WD

The experience I have endured for having a brand new land rover is nothing short of shocking. Been into Land Rover 6 times for media nav faults, engine man light on, mirror issues , constantly back and forth to dealers, and cost to me and fuel and time off work and still no further forward. In motion with Lex to have it taken back and replaced with something else and I am looking for compensation for time and monies lost at no fault of my own.

Kelly Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 2.0 D200 S Auto

I think for such an expensive car, little extras should come as standard…is ridiculous that I had to pay extra for a cup holder! Not as spacious in the back as I thought but overall relatively happy with it.

Elaine Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 1.5 P300e SE Auto

the car will not drive on just electric - it originally did but now goes in and out of electric with no reason. I took it to the garage and they advised i needed to clear my sat nat history (what a load of rubbish). Also the drive shaft broke after 3 months. I paid for a charging point on my house but for the amount of electric i can get the car to use it really is not worth it!

Jeremy Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 2.0 D165 Auto

I think the monthly lease cost is expensive for the type/size of vehicle. There are a lot of similar small suvs that offer far more for less monthly payments. Also, I have been asked to pay an additional £5 towards the increase in road fund license that went through in April 2021. I thought the lease company had to bear these costs?

Handling does make me feel unsafe on the road. Very little room in the boot space for a big car

Hazel Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 2.0 P200 S Auto

The boot space is too small so we are frustrated that we chose a 4yr deal as already would have been looking to swap to a Range Rover with larger boot space. However the car itself that fact aside is absolutely brilliant and I love it!
