The 2015 Range Rover Evoque is one of GAYOT's Top 10 Dog-Friendly Cars 

The smallest vehicle to wear a Range Rover Badge, the Range Rover Evoque offers style and prestige befitting the iconic British brand. Unlike other Range Rovers, however, the Evoque is fuel-efficient enough to be a practical commuter vehicle for those outside the Paris Hilton tax bracket. Plus it still has plenty of room for a Pomeranian or two.

Inside, the Evoque is stylish and nicely appointed. Once you get past the unusual gear selector, the ergonomics are fine, as well. Despite the low roofline, the cabin doesn't feel cramped, and drivers get a typical tall-SUV view of the road ahead. The Evoque's styling does create some side and rear blind spots, however. Our Fuji White test car's surround camera, part of a $15,500 Dynamic Premium Package, compensated for these somewhat.

Helped by all-wheel drive and torque vectoring, the two-ton Evoque feels reasonably nimble on the road. Definitely one of the better handling vehicles in its class, it has sharp steering and decent brake feel. The Evoke will, predictably, understeer when pushed, thanks to the heavy front weight bias and all-season tires, but then, this is hardly set up to be a sports car.

The Evoque's big draw is doubtless its unique style. Inside and out, this luxury "cute-ute" is a fashion statement. Halfway decent EPA fuel economy ratings, thanks to its smallish 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine and 9-speed transmission, are a bonus.

Warranty/Service: 4-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, 6-year/unlimited mile corrosion warranty, 4-year/50,000-mile roadside assistance
