There are many luxury car brands on the market. Few are as well-known as the Land Rover Range Rover. However, for folks who want a Range Rover but don’t need a big SUV, Land Rover has the Range Rover Evoque. Here’s a look at why the 2021 Range Rover Evoque is rightfully one of the most luxurious cars of the year.
How the 2021 Range Rover Evoque fared
According to U.S. News, not only is the Evoque one of the most luxurious SUVs on the market right now, but it’s also likely the best offroader in its segment. This is a pretty good claim to fame since the subcompact luxury SUV segment the Evoque is in is very competitive. Popular SUVs like the Lexus UX or the Mercedes-Benz GLA Class are also part of the segment, yet U.S. News said that the Evoque was better offroading than many of them.
Luxury is where the Evoque really shined. U.S. News wrote that the Evoque’s interior was not only “handsome and stylish,” but it was also “spacious and comfortable.” As such, it’s no surprise that U.S. News gave the luxury SUV the nod, but no ranking. Regardless, the Evoque is in good company with other luxury SUVs like the BMW X5 and the Genesis GV80 that also made the list.
The 2021 Range Rover Evoque’s luxurious interior
According to U.S. News, despite being great for offroading, the Evoque has a very comfortable ride. Combined with its standard luxury features such as leather upholstery and a 10-inch touchscreen display, it makes the Evoque one of the most luxurious SUVs available.
The Evoque also has a 7-inch driver information display and many comfort features such as dual-zone automatic climate control. The Evoque has some tech that the regular Range Rover doesn’t have. It uses the Pivi Pro infotainment system, and it’s a far superior system to what the regular Range Rover uses right now.
U.S. News wrote that the Evoque has a long list of other tech and safety features that are standard, such as a voice recognition system, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a surround-view parking camera system, among many others.
How much does this luxury SUV cost?
The luxurious and high-tech interior isn’t the only selling point of the Evoque. It’s one of the best SUVs to go offroad, partially because it comes with all-wheel drive as standard. With that being said, despite all those great standard features, the Evoque only starts at approximately $43,000.
For shoppers looking for a luxury SUV, that’s an excellent deal. But of course, for those looking to add features onto their Evoque, it’ll cost a bit more. For example, according to U.S. News, the most expensive option for the Evoque is the R-Dynamic HSE trim starting at about $53,000. The mid-tier trim is the SE, and it’ll start at about $48,000.
There are plenty of interior upgrades available for the Evoque as far as options go. The Evoque’s already luxurious seats can come with heating and massage capabilities, and its 10-inch touchscreen can be paired with another 10-inch touchscreen. And of course, fun features such as a cabin air purification system as well as a head-up display are also available.
