It's a loaner. The wife's LR4 is in for an issue with the touch screen. I'm glad they gave us the Evoque as I've wanted to see what it was like living with it for a few days. It's surprisingly roomy for its size with a decent cargo area, but you're not hauling much. Drives well, good power, solid and hwy mpg in the upper 20s. It's a road car with an off-road pedigree, so you just need to resist the "would like to meet that on the trail" comments.

One thing it has in common with the Defender is that it's a head turner. My wife has answered numerous questions about the vehicle in just a couple of days.

Is this like a party joke....Q: Name two things blue and one has a bottle opener attached to it?

A: Two sad drunks?

I give up...


That evoke is too damn small. They should make a big boy version.

You're right! There are just so many contrasts between the D90 and Evoque in those pics. The Range would have just softened the effect.

Evoque is based on the LR2, same chassis.
