How much does the Range Rover Evoque cost to run?

The 2.0L diesel is the most economical Range Rover Evoque to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Range Rover Evoque 2.0L diesel costs £30.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band C.

It does almost 66 MPG on average, which means it will cost £9.00* in diesel every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Suzuki Vitara 1.6L diesel and the more thirsty Volvo XC70 2.0L diesel.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 28, which is lower than the Audi Q5 2.0L diesel, but higher than the Ford Kuga 2.0L diesel. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Suzuki Vitara has the lowest insurance group.)

Range Rover Evoque: How big is the boot?

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque hatchback has a bigger boot than the coupe (it can hold 673 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This allows the hatchback to take one pushchair and 4 large bags or 5 large bags. While the coupe takes just 4 large bags.

Worth knowing, the Land Rover Discovery Sport SUV is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 7 large bags with its 981 litres.

Is the Range Rover Evoque easy to park?

This is one of the widest cars in the class, which makes it feel like a bit of a squeeze in the multi-stories. If that stresses you a bit, try the much narrower Suzuki Jimny.

If you park on the street regularly, this is one of the cars to shortlist. At 4366m long it gives you reasonable 434mm space to move the car in and out of the bay.

Which Range Rover Evoque has the best performance?

The fastest Range Rover Evoque from 0-60, is the 2.0L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 400 lbs/ft torque and 290 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 6.3 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Audi Q5 3.0L diesel, which will beat your Range Rover Evoque to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

What size caravan or trailer, can the Range Rover Evoque tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Range Rover Evoque 2.0L diesel which has 500 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 2000kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
