2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque KBB Expert Review
One of Land Rover’s smallest and most affordable SUVs might also be its most desirable. Completely remade this year, the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has an alluring shape, a powerful new hybrid option and all the clout of its big brothers minus the exorbitant price. Although the look and size are familiar, the 2020 Evoque gets a big boost in the areas of power, cabin technology and off-road ability, not to mention more rear-seat legroom and a larger cargo bay. Up against rivals like the BMW X4, Acura RDX and Audi Q5, the Range Rover Evoque definitely stands out as unique, although the Alfa Romeo Stelvio may give it a run for its money.

If you’re looking for a small-luxury SUV with big presence, the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is certainly one to watch. Stunning styling is teamed with an even more stunning interior, yet, should the need arise, the Evoque’s ability to get down and dirty makes it a true off-road-capable SUV.

The 2020 Range Rover Evoque is all-new this year, so we can’t speak to its reliability or resale. However, past models have not been all that stellar. The Evoque is also a small SUV, so rear-seat and cargo space is limited. The hybrid model isn’t as efficient as the Lexus NX Hybrid, or as advanced.
What's New for 2020
For 2020, Land Rover has completely remade the Range Rover Evoque. Sitting on the company’s new Premium Transverse Architecture, the new Evoque offers a more rigid chassis and more advanced electronics, such as its 48-volt mild-hybrid option and new driver-assist features.
Thanks to its new Premium Transverse Architecture, the 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a much quieter and more rigid SUV, with a modern electrical architecture necessary for today’s high-tech features. Power for the non-hybrid models comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder making 246 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. New this year is a 48-volt mild-hybrid that employs a belt-integrated starter generator and under-floor battery, which is mostly used to apply torque when starting from a dead stop. At speeds under 11 mph, the system shuts down the gas motor to gather energy via regenerative braking, power that is then applied to aid acceleration. The hybrid, which is only available on the R-Dynamic trim, puts out 296 horsepower, although the increase is due to revision to the turbocharger and not because of the electric assist.
Also new this year is the addition of the Terrain Response2 system, a first for the Evoque, which now comes standard. Terrain Response2 is an advanced all-wheel-drive system providing settings for General, Eco, Sand, Grass-Gravel-Snow, and Mud & Ruts, as well as an Auto mode. To prove its off-road chops, the Evoque can wade through 23-inch-deep water and even offers a Wade Sensing feature that employs an ultrasonic sensor to detect water depth. Ask that of an Audi Q5 or Lexus NX and see what happens.
To prove how serious Land Rover is about the Evoque’s off-road ability, it offers an optional Wade Sensing feature that uses ultrasonic sensors to measure water depth. The feedback is displayed on the central touch-screen display via a graphic depicting the Evoque and a rising blue line signifying water depth.
CLEARSIGHT REARVIEW MIRROR
This optional feature replaces the traditional mirrored rearview with an HD video display screen hooked to a rear-facing camera. The display gives up to 50-percent-better rear vision, with no obstruction from the rear headrests or pillars to block the view.
The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque’s strongest selling point might just be its interior. The simplistic, clean design is punctuated with premium materials, large elegant touch screens and a protruding dash pad color matched to the seats. Technology abounds inside the new Evoque, which also now features more rear-seat legroom and a slightly larger cargo bay. Among the more interesting tech gadgets are the Pro Duo system’s twin 10-inch glass touch screens, a high-definition HD rearview mirror, an undercarriage camera that lets you see objects under the front of the vehicle, and rear-seat tablet holders with charging capabilities and a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices.
You may have to look twice to discern the difference between the 2019 and 2020 Range Rover Evoque, and given the first generation’s impressive good looks, that’s probably a good thing. The new Evoque rides on a longer wheelbase, but its overall length and width are nearly identical to the previous model. The coupe-like silhouette and rising side beltline remain a mainstay of the Evoque design, although the 2-door model has been dropped. New features include narrower LED headlights, flush-mounted side-door handles and new wheel designs.
Notable Standard Equipment
The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque comes in three models: Base, R-Dynamic and First Edition. Within those are three trims: S, SE and HSE. The base S comes with all-wheel drive, the Terrain Response2 system, 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, 10-inch Touch Pro display screens, LED headlights and taillights, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, leather seating, a rear camera, 180-watt sound system and a 10-way-power driver seat. The SE adds automatic high beams, automatic headlight leveling, 14-way-power seats, Touch Pro Duo dual 10-inch touch screens, a power rear liftgate, 12.3-inch interactive Driver Display instrument cluster and park assist.
Notable Optional Equipment
Moving to the R-Dynamic S brings a more powerful engine with the mild-hybrid system, R-Dynamic styling and more features. The HSE version ups the game with the ClearSight rearview mirror, power-gesture liftgate, 16-way-power front seats, 380-watt Meridian sound system and 20-inch wheels. Some popular packages include a Cold Climate package (heated washer jets, windshield and steering wheel), the Driver Package (blind-spot assist, adaptive cruise control and high-speed emergency braking) and Adaptive and Configurable suspension dynamics. The First Edition comes pretty much loaded, although it doesn’t get the more powerful hybrid motor, but does have unique exterior and interior trim.
Under the Hood
If you buy a base S, SE or First Edition Evoque, you’ll get a 246-horsepower 2.0-liter engine mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission, which itself is then paired with a sophisticated all-wheel-drive setup.
The R-Dynamic models get a 48-volt mild-hybrid upgrade using the same turbocharged 2.0-liter and a starter-generator hybrid system. The hybrid models also feature Active Torque Vectoring. The standard engine can run to 60 mph in about seven seconds flat, while the hybrid does it in just 6.3 seconds. As for fuel economy, there is no major difference between the two engines, with the base engine actually getting better highway fuel economy by one mpg. Both engines require premium fuel.

The all-new 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque S carries a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $43,645 including the $995 destination charge. The SE trim bumps that price up to $48,195. The R-Dynamic models come in S, SE and HSE, ranging from $47,595 to $56,795, while the First Edition starts at $57,845. Options can add thousands to the Evoque’s bottom line, so keep that in mind while shopping the competition.
Pricing for the Evoque is higher than the Audi Q5, Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Lexus NX, but well below the BMW X4 and Porsche Macan. Before you set out to purchase a new Range Rover Evoque, be sure to check the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for their new car. As for resale, we expect the Evoque to hold only average values, well below the class leaders but on par with some domestic names like the Cadillac XT4 and Lincoln MKC.
