What It Is: The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is new for 2012 and a mouthful to say the least. It’s also a luxury SUV with the young, affluent, and educated crowd in its crosshairs.
Best Thing: The coupe looks just as sharp as the day it was unveiled. This is because it’s closely based on the concept undergoing minimal changes before entering production.
Worst Thing: The off-road capabilities that will go to waste. Who would be crazy enough to actually go off-road in an SUV that can carry a price tag as high as a hair under $60,000?
Snap Judgment: Sister publication Motor Trend named the Evoque its 2012 SUV of the year, and for good reason. The baby Rover possesses similar off-road capabilities to the bigger LR4 and gets much better fuel economy compared to its bigger sibling.
