RE: Hi Everyone!

Are you ready for this.......... there are a lot of variants
Evoque S/SE and HSE
Evoque R-Dynamic S/SE and HSE
Evoque First Edition (only for the 1st 12 months production)

It was much simpler in the days of Pure, Prestige and Dynamic!

RE: Hi Everyone!

Thank you everyone for the lovely welcome! It gets more confusing then with the different variants! Lol! It’s the older models I’m looking at so it will be the dynamic I’m looking at.

An evoque will be much cheaper to run than the X6 but still trying to decide if it’s worth the swap. Does the evoque have all the 4x4 abilities where you can chose the terrain as you can on a RRS?

Anything I need to watch out for when buying?

RE: Hi Everyone!

Yes you have the terrain response in the Evoque (including dynamic mode in the errrrm Dynamic spec ) The only ones that don't have terrain response are the ED4 2 wheel drive variants.

You obviously don't have the air suspension or diff locking or hi/lo ratio that the RRS has but the electronics sort that out for you, and you also don't have the same ground clearance the RRS has however the Evoque into almost everywhere you will probably need to get, and get you out if you get stuck.

As for things to watch out for, just have a good read of the forums as there is plenty of information on them from owners. Rear diffs are prone to going and the Haldex should really be serviced a lot more than the LR recommended 150k miles intervals but both can resolved for a lot less than LR can fix them.

just go for the newest, best spec one you can afford with a decent warranty. Many think the auto is the best to go for to and I would be inclined to agree but its personal preference really.

RE: Hi Everyone!

If you want to do some off-road driving or heavy towing with the Evoque then you need to consider something after 2013 as in October 2013 LR introduced the 9 speed automatic that has 1st gear as a crawler gear instead of low range which is why the car will always pull away in 2nd or 3rd in normal driving.
The Evoque doesn’t get the rock crawl mode in it’s TR as that requires the air-suspension as well as a transfer gear box. Having offroaded both my Evoques I can assure you that not having rock crawl is no loss, the other programs get it through most situations just fine and as well as any old Series Landy or Disco1 or 2 and better than a Freelander2 as the Evoque has a little more ground clearance- it’s only millimeters more but it makes a difference(as the Actress said to the Bishop)
