Rankings & Research The 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque's #2 ranking is based on its score within the 2013 Luxury Subcompact SUVs category. Currently, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has a score of 7.3 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources. 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Overview Is the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque a Good Used SUV? The 2013 Range Rover Evoque isn’t a great used luxury subcompact SUV. While the Evoque excites with crisp styling, brisk acceleration, and competent off-road ability, its poor reliability makes it tough to recommend over competitors like the BMW X1. Also, the Evoque has tight rear seats and poor rearward visibility. Used 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Performance and Interior The Range Rover Evoque has a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 240 horsepower. A six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard. The engine feels muscular, and it scoots the SUV up to speed quickly. The transmission shifts promptly, and fuel economy is fine by class standards: 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. The Evoque feels especially light and agile for a small SUV. It has accurate steering, good stopping power, and good stability around tight corners. Better still, the suspension yields a comfortable ride, soaking up bumps and dips in the road with poise. All Evoque models come equipped with Terrain Response, allowing drivers to adjust the SUV’s traction control to handle different off-road surfaces (like gravel, snow, and sand). The system works well, and it makes the SUV surprisingly capable on rough terrain. The Evoque can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. The Range Rover Evoque is available in three- and five-door body styles. Both models seat five, but the three-door Coupe is available with a four-seat layout as an option. The Evoque’s front seats are comfy, supportive, and provide ample head- and legroom. The rear seats feel rather cramped due to the SUV’s sloping roofline, and they’re especially awkward to access in Coupe models. There are two full sets of LATCH connectors for securing child seats. The low roof and slim windows compromise rear visibility as well. The Evoque five-door has 51 cubic-feet of cargo space with its rear seats folded, and the Evoque Coupe has a maximum capacity of 47.6 cubic feet. The Evoque’s cabin impresses with its high-quality materials and elegant design. Luxurious touches include a leather-wrapped dashboard, crisp aluminum trim, soft-touch plastics, and a large panoramic sunroof. The SUV’s climate controls are user friendly, but the 8-inch touchscreen complicates some of the audio and infotainment functions. It’s often slow to respond to inputs as well. Performance & mpg Every 2013 Range Rover Evoque comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. It drives all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. EPA fuel economy estimates are respectable at 18 mpg city/28 mpg highway/22 mpg combined. In Moda Cars performance testing, an Evoque went from zero to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds: a time that trails several rivals with more powerful engines. Used 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Prices The price of a used 2013 Evoque ranges from about $25,600 for a Pure model to $28,200 for a Dynamic model. Prices vary depending on the vehicle's condition, mileage, features, and location.

How Much Does It Cost to Insure a Land Rover Range Rover Evoque? The cost of insuring a Land Rover Range Rover Evoque will depend on a variety of factors, including your deductible, the level of coverage that you want, and the type of insurance that you choose. Your age, gender, location, credit score, and driving record can also have an impact on your insurance rates. Check out our car insurance guide to find the best policy for you. Driving Extensive use of aluminum and other lightweight measures help the 2013 Range Rover Evoque to be one of the lightest models in its class, and the lack of weight contributes to a palpable nimbleness that one doesn't always get despite compact crossovers' comparatively modest size. The ride is sophisticated and beautifully executed, particularly with the adjustable suspension of the Dynamics package. Placing a four-cylinder engine in a Range Rover might seem like a recipe for epic slowness, but it's quite a punchy engine, with a pleasingly sporty rasp. Is the 2013 Evoque the Best Model Year to Buy? Land Rover debuted the Evoque as an all-new model in 2012. The 2013 model became available with parallel park assist and an off-road navigation system, but it was otherwise unchanged from the year prior. If these features aren’t important to you, consider saving your money and shopping for a 2012 model. That said, you’ll want to look for 2014 models if you desire features like adaptive cruise control and forward-collision warning. Which Used Range Rover Evoque Is Right for Me? The 2013 Evoque comes in five trim levels: Pure, Pure Plus, Pure Premium, Prestige, and Dynamic. The base Range Rover Evoque Pure (five-door model, only) has an 8-inch touchscreen, USB input, Bluetooth, a CD player, parking sensors, a rearview camera, remote keyless entry, a power tailgate, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, partial leather seats, and alloy wheels. The Pure Plus trim adds full leather upholstery and a sunroof. The Pure Premium trim adds a navigation system, a surround-view camera, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive headlights, and proximity keyless entry. The Dynamic trim adds aggressive styling enhancements and is available with the MagneRide adaptive suspension. The Prestige trim (five-door model, only) gets additional leather updates. Optional features include heated front seats, satellite radio, rear-seat DVD players, and parallel park assist. Considering the Evoque’s poor reliability rating, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned model. Land Rover extends its original new-car warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles for certified pre-owned vehicles. Every CPO Land Rover must pass a 165-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Land Rover warranty page carefully. 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque and Other SUVs to Consider Which Is Better: 2013 Range Rover Evoque or 2013 Land Rover LR2? The 2013 Land Rover LR2 fits the mold if you’re shopping for a small SUV with off-roading potential. It has more cargo space than the Evoque, and used models are typically much less expensive. Despite its issues though, the Evoque is still the better option of the two. The LR2 offers lackluster acceleration, a jittery ride, low fuel economy (17/24 mpg), and subpar cabin materials. Both models rate poorly for reliability. Which Is Better: 2013 Range Rover Evoque or 2013 Audi Q5? We named the Audi Q5 the 2013 Best Luxury Compact SUV for Families. Like the Evoque, the Q5 boasts a luxe cabin with quality materials, good fuel economy, and athletic handling. However, it far surpasses the Range Rover when it comes to rear seating space, cargo room, and reliability. Used Q5 models tend to have lower prices as well. As long as you don’t need a luxury off-roader, the Q5 is the better buy. Which Is Better: 2013 Range Rover Evoque or 2013 BMW X3? The 2013 BMW X3 is a better luxury SUV than the Evoque, so long as you don’t plan on venturing too far off-road. The X3 impresses with its fun-to-drive handling, peppy turbocharged engines, roomy interior, and above-average reliability. Used models are often more affordable as well. Interior The 2013 Range Rover Evoque's emphasis on design extends to its interior, where rich, multitone combinations of leather, plastics, and metal combine in the various design themes, resulting in a cabin that certainly has more flair than the standard designs found in most other luxury crossover interiors. Visual interest centers on the "floating" center stack and the nifty rotary gear selector that has become an interior focal point for corporate cousin Jaguar. The standard 8-inch central touchscreen controls most infotainment and climate control functions and is easy enough to use, if sometimes slow to respond. The overall appearance of the dash, particularly the center stack and console, is classy but high-tech. The Evoque's rear-sloping roofline is a stylist's dream but does backseat occupants' heads no favors, while the upward-sloping door sheet metal cuts down the rear windows' size, contributing to the cramped and claustrophobic impression most will feel in the rear. The sensation is further heightened in the Coupe. The Evoque's styling and packaging also affects cargo capacity. The maximum of 51 cubic feet (47.6 for the Coupe) of cargo space trails just about all competitors by a wide margin.
