Dual-view screen

We’ll leave it to the Evoque to show off the flashiest bit of technology here.

We’ll leave it to the Evoque to show off the flashiest bit of technology here. All our readers were keen to try the ‘dual-view’ screen, which lets the passenger watch a film while the driver sees, say, the sat-nav, on the same screen.

It first appeared on the Range Rover in 2010 and continues to amaze. “ It’s incredible,” said Nathan, watching TV in the passenger seat. “I’ve never seen anything like it.” And Sam told us: “The tech’s bang-on, although I’dprefer a passenger who I can talk to rather than one who’s watching TV.”Phil wondered if he’d use it. “It’s pointless if it’s just you going to work,” he said. “You might use it when shopping with your wife, but that’s a short trip.”

Pete told us he’d prefer to pay for rear screens, adding: “I’d rather shut the kids up. I needn’t worry about the missus.” And Sam delivered the knock-out blow, telling us: “If my partner wants to watch something, she’ll use her iPad.” All this was before we told them the price: £600 – and you have to spec the £1,430 HDD navigation, too. Practical Nathan asked: “Would you get the money back when you come to sell the car? I’m not sure.”

Verdict: leave it
