Range Rover Evoque review - Reliability and safety

The Evoque has plenty of active on-board safety kit and a full five-star rating from Euro NCAP

The Evoque was tested by Euro NCAP in 2019 and achieved a maximum five-star overall rating, with 94% adult occupant and 87% child occupant scores.

All models come as standard with a rear camera, front and rear parking assistance, lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking (AEB), a driver condition monitor and cruise control with a speed limiter.

Safety kit includes an intrusion sensor, child locks, six airbags and a deployable bonnet with pedestrian airbag. S models add traffic sign recognition with an adaptive speed limiter, SE models get a standard ‘Park Pack’ (park assist, 360-degree camera, rear traffic monitor, clear exit monitor), while HSE models add Land Rover’s Drive Pack (blind spot assist, adaptive cruise control, high-speed emergency braking).

The Evoque didn't feature in our 2021 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, while Land Rover itself showed a little improvement, moving up from 25th place (out of 30 manufacturers) in 2020 to 22nd spot - ahead of Audi and Ford.

Warranty

The Evoque is subject to the same competitive warranty as other Land Rover products: three years with unlimited mileage. This is the same as you get with the Jaguar E-Pace or BMW X2, but beats the standard three-year/60,000-mile warranties from Audi and Lexus.

Servicing

The Evoque should be serviced annually or every 10,000 miles. Land Rover includes a two-year parts warranty on all its servicing and maintenance work, while it also offers its Land Rover 3+ Servicing for vehicles over 3-years old.
