The facelifted Range Rover Evoque has been around for over a year, but itís the first time that weíve been able to catch up with the flagship of the line-up in Autobiography trim. Items like 20-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and electric memory seats, as well as heated and cooled front chairs, a heated steering wheel, full leather upholstery, an in-car television and the latest InControl Pro infotainment system. As our car was an early build model, it didnít have the updated audio system, but our experience of it in other Land Rover vehicles has shown what a leap forward it is compared to the outdated system in our test car. Other kit on this Evoque includes a navigation system, an electric rear tailgate with gesture control and a suite of safety kit that includes lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, autonomous emergency braking, traffic sign recognition and reverse traffic alert.

Beautiful attention to detail. Still highly sought after. Superb off-road ability. Feels surefooted, especially in the wet. Refined diesel engine. Excellent ride. Agile steering. Good size boot.
Pricey. Old fashioned infotainment system, but now replaced. Shallow windows hinders the rearward view. Tighter on space in the rear.
