Starting with the diesels, the lowest-powered D165 has a quoted WLTP CO2 emissions figure of 157g/km, with average WLTP fuel economy of up to 46.9mpg. The D200 is slightly less efficient, delivering 44mpg and from 168g/km. The latter compares well with rivals, while the former is beaten by the 35 TDI Audi Q3 which can manage 49.6mpg, and has emissions of 152g/km.

The petrol models emit more CO2 and return slightly worse fuel economy figures than their diesel counterparts. The lowest-powered P200 emits 196g/km of CO2, with 32.6mpg on average, while stepping to the P250 sees 199g/km of CO2 with economy of staying the same at 32.1mpg combined. 

But, there's also the P300e plug-in hybrid to consider. The Evoque PHEV is able to travel up to 39 miles on electric charge alone, which is superior to that of both the T4 Recharge and T5 Recharge versions of the Volvo XC40, which will only do 29 miles on a charge. The P300e Evoque in S trim reaches a claimed 201.2mpg on the combined cycle and emits 31g/km of CO2.

The P300e Evoque is quite unique in this class in that it offers the capability to be rapid charged. If you find a charger of up to 50kW, you can refill a flat battery in just 30 minutes. We wouldn’t recommend doing that because it’s quite an expensive way of topping up an Evoque, so we’d suggest you do it via a 7kW wallbox charger at home using cheaper overnight electricity. Doing it this way will take about two and a half hours.

However, if you’re not a company car driver, then we’d recommend the mild-hybrid D200 diesel, which seems to offer the best trade-off between performance, economy and emissions.

Insurance groups

The Range Rover Evoque starts in insurance group 25 for the lowest-powered diesel model, climbing through groups 29 to 37 for the D200 and P300e models, respectively.

By contrast, the BMW X2 starts in group 25 in the basic sDrive20i M Sport form, while the performance-orientated X2 M35i has a group 34 rating. The Audi Q3 ranges from group 24 to 32 depending on spec, while the Volvo XC40 sits in groups 23 to 30.

It’s likely that the cachet of that Range Rover badge might have something to do with the Evoque’s higher rating versus its rivals, although there have been some historic issues with Land Rover owners getting insurance coverage for their cars. The brand has been working hard on ways to improve theft resistance, though.

Depreciation

Our experts predict that the latest Range Rover Evoque should hold onto between 61 - 67 per cent of its value after three years and 36,000 miles, with P300e plug-in hybrid models performing particularly well. The Evoque's excellent depreciation figures far exceed that of the Audi Q3’s 50 per cent, the BMW X1’s 59 per cent and even the Mercedes GLA’s 57 per cent.
