Land Rover Range Rover Evoque RANGE ROVER EVOQUE HATCHBACK 2011 - 2015

5 star review

Plenty has been said about the Range Rover Evoque over the last few years and you probably think you've heard it all, but the Milner LRM-1 version brings a whole different kettle of fish to the table, and with it comes a selection of superlatives and whoops of enjoyment. Developed by the Milner Off Road team deep in the Derbyshire Dales, this is no Chelsea Tractor. Originally designed as an off road race car, but then offered to customers in either turn key or kit car forms, the LRM-1 is a whole different beast. From the exterior, the styling of the tested all black version certainly looks fierce (imagine if Bruce Wayne had a 4x4 bat mobile) but not too far removed from its parent Evoque, however once you go under the shell the real differences begin to show. Out goes the 2.0L engine of the originals and in comes a hefty 5.0L supercharged V8 developing an enthralling 550bhp and an apocalyptic growl to go with it. Throw in the earth shifting 680nm of Torque (Ferrari 458 develops 540nm, just for reference) and this vehicle has some of the most explosive power around. Transmission comes courtesy of a 6 speed sequential gear box with a Milner transfer box and Milner differentials, allowing quick, smooth changes through the gears. A double wishbone fully independent suspension system has also been applied, and it's no surprise given its roots that this is a vehicle which is extremely comfortable off road - if you have the guts to take it on that is! Of course this is not the vehicle you will choose for your every day activities or long range trips. The body shell has been scaled down to 4/5 of the size of the original Evoque and the luxurious, spacious interior is now replaced by roll cages, corbeau racing seats and harnesses. It also goes without saying that given that the original Evoque was never highly thought of for its fuel efficiency, the LRM-1 is not going to go easy on the pumps, but then again, that really isn't the point of a vehicle such as this one. To many people, the LRM-1 is more like something out of a fantastically fun dream and will probably stay that way, however for those who do choose to purchase one, they will soon find that dreams can come true.

5 star review

This car is excellent, well built, stunning, BUT!!!.. My Partner has a 2 month old Evoque a 2.2 Dynamic diesel auto. On Saturday 11th Feb at 7.30am it was -14 Degrees Celcius in Northampton. It started, but went about a mile before it shuddered to a stop, and then went into "safe"/restricted performance setting, and kept shuddering to a complete stop when trying to re-start. Range Rover assist (needs help with "customer Service") had no technician available until 5.00pm, and they don’t just "recover" a car until a technician has seen it. After much argueing, they agreed to send out AA truck from Aylesbury 1.50hours away to get recovered to the dealer. Meanwhile, my partner called the local dealer to where it is being sent (Hartwell, Northampton), where one of the sales guys, has had exactly the same thing happen to him on his way into work with his diesel Evoque. Then, we contacted a friend who has the same model having had his since December and his too had broken down in exactly the same way. After then talking to the dealer where my partner got his car from, they confirmed they also had 9 cars that at this time were having the same issue. Another friend, who has a friend who is a RR dealer up near Grimsby, has had the same problem with severel cars.. It seems that diesel is waxing in the fuel filter, and stopping the cars NOT a good thing for such a Range Rover marque. I guess RR headquaters will be having a big meeting today...

5 star review

WOW! The Range Rover Evoque Coupe really is every bit as good as the media hype that it receives! I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to drive the Evoque at the "Range Rover Evoque Unleashed" event in Manchester. The car is superb. Really easy to drive. Fabulous design, very comfortable, responsive, classy with the excellent build quality that you would expect from Range Rover. The car really does handle like a Golf GTI on the road, but is equally as capable off road on the obstacle course! The Dynamic model is packed with fun gadgets and all the latest technology. The park assist is brilliant! No need to drive around looking for a parking space any more. The Evoque will recognise if it will fit into a space and literally park the car for you! Quite an odd feeling! Space in the back is good and the panoramic roof really makes the cabin feel a whole lot bigger than it actually is. Boot space is good, but I’m sure a lot of buyers won’t be too concerned about that!

Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic TD4 AWD 2016

There can be no question that Land Rover’s decision to build the Range Rover Evoque was an inspired one. It’s by far the company’s best seller, and though purists seem unwilling to forgive what they see as a dilution of the brand, everyone else has flocked to the Evoque in droves. If you can look [...]

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 5dr 2.2 SD4 190 4WD auto road test report

The Range Rover Evoque 5dr is the more practical alternative from Land Rover’s brand new sporting compact SUV range. It adds extra doors, more rear headroom and a slight shift towards practicality rather than outright catwalk looks, and is likely to be the bigger seller of the two Evoques. It actual [...]

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Coupe 2.2 SD4 190 4WD auto road test report

An SUV Coupe - sounds radical? Yes, but that's just what a groundbreaking new car the Range Rover Evoque is. Sitting beneath the Range Rover Sport, it is smaller than even the Land Rover Freelander, and much sportier than both. Technically, the Range Rover Evoque Coupe is a 3-door, but not to Range [...]
