Range Rover Evoque (2013-2019) review – with once exotic style now familiar, does the Evoque still have what takes? - MPG and running costs

Concept car looks and a luxurious interior compensate for some less than inspiring handling

Evo rating
Price
from £30,760
  • Comfort, interior quality, off-road capabilities
  • Steering feel, tech still a big step behind, rivals better it dynamically

Servicing an Evoque can be quite affordable thanks to Land Rover's five-year service pack, costing just £499. Insurance won't be cheap though, as the Evoque sits in insurance bands 32P to 41P.

If fuel economy is a priority take a look at the front-drive e-Capability model. It has a manual gearbox as standard and returns 67.3mpg with CO2 emissions of 109g/km.

That drops a to 57.7mpg and 125g/km in the cheapest four-wheel drive, manual diesel, but that drop is hardly likely to guzzle you out of house and home. If you're considering buying a petrol-fuelled Evoque, forecourt visits will be far more frequent. A sub 40mpg return and greater emissions from 165g/km to 185g/km (depending on the body style and power output chosen) should come as no surprise.
