2012 Range Rover Evoque Coupe Review

Cross Coupe

In short: A sporty, stylish and compact coupe SUV.

Blurring the lines between compact crossover and luxury coupe, the all-new Evoque is Range Rover's smallest, sportiest SUV to date. Available in either a three-door or five-door model, Range Rover's "crossover coupé" features bold styling and a lively, 240-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that makes driving about town a blast. However, lest you think that Range Rover has gone soft, the Evoque Coupe is equally as comfortable in the mud and the muck thanks to advanced off-road features like Land Rover's carefully-tested Terrain Response system.
