The Evoque could be a bag of nails on the road and it would probably still continue to sell strongly. We're under no illusion that its success hinges largely on the exterior appearance and the appeal of a relatively affordable Range Rover badge. Indeed, the LRX concept car that sired the Evoque was badged Land Rover until someone in the company had an epiphany.
Four years after launch the Evoque still looks great, especially in bold colours on big wheels. The three-door Coupé retains the concept car's stance, though the five-door model is attractive by any measure. A minor update in 2014 brought new colour and trim options to further personalise the Evoque, while the 2016 model year adds a new light signature as well as a more comprehensive design update. It hasn't changed the core look of the Evoque though, and it didn't need to.
