Ed' take: The acceleration of the diesel and petrol engine of the Evoque is good and it doesn’t feel any smaller. The performance has gone notches above as it now has better performance thank to better gearing with the new nine-speed ZF transmission.
Both its petrol and diesel power plants are mated with a nine speed automatic transmission gear box, which sends the engine power to its all wheels. This light weight petrol engine enables the vehicle to cross the speed mark of 100 Kmph in close to 7.6 seconds from a standstill. At the same time, it helps in attaining a top speed of 217 Kmph, which is incredible. On the other hand, its diesel trims are capable of achieving an impressive top speed of 195 Kmph and consumes around 8.5 seconds to break the speed barrier of 100 Kmph from a scratch.
Ed's take: Considering mind over matter, then the 2.2-litre diesel engine is the most sensible buy as the petrol is expensive and is only available in 3-door.
As said above, this model series is available in both petrol and diesel engine options for the buyers to select from. The diesel variants are powered by a 2.2-litre, SD4, turbocharged power plant, which comes with a displacement capacity of 2179cc. It is integrated with four cylinders and sixteen valves using double overhead camshaft based diesel engine. This power plant has the ability to produce a maximum power of 187.7bhp at 5200rpm in combination with a commanding torque output of 420Nm at 2000rpm. On the other hand, the petrol variant is fitted with a 2.0-litre power plant under the hood. It is integrated with 4-cylinders and can displace 1999cc. This engine can churn out a whopping power of 237.3bhp at 5500rpm, while generating a peak torque output of 340Nm at just 1750rpm. Both these engines have been mated with an advanced nine speed automatic transmission gearbox that distributes the engine power to all four wheels. This sophisticated gearbox not just improves the performance of the engine but it also reduces the fuel consumption by 20 percent. For delivering a healthy fuel economy, both petrol and diesel mills are incorporated with an advanced direct injection fuel supply system.
Ed''s take: The diesel engine of the Evoque is frugal despite having good performance. And now it has improved further as it is offered with a nine-speed ZF transmission.
The diesel engine of this sports utility vehicle is incorporated with a direct injection fuel supply system, which allows it to deliver a decent mileage under standard traffic conditions. It has the ability to generate a fuel economy of 12.7 Kmpl on the expressways and it comes down to 8.5 Kmpl approximately within the city limits. On the other hand, its petrol motor is integrated with an advanced high pressure direct injection fuel supply system, which makes is capable of returning a maximum mileage of 7.4 Kmpl, when driven on bigger roads and gives around 4.2 Kmpl in the city traffic conditions.
Ed's take: The Evoque gets the smallest engine from the JLR stable, which is the new 2.0-litre petrol. But the power rating of these engines is good.
The 2.0-litre Si4 petrol engine has the ability to churn out a maximum power of 237.3bhp at 5500rpm along with with a commanding torque output of 340Nm at just 1750rpm, which is rather good. At the same time, its diesel power plant allows it to produce a peak power of 187.7bhp at 5200rpm in combination with a maximum torque output of 420Nm at 2000rpm.
Ed's take: Being a luxury vehicle, the Evoque gets touchscreen music system, cruise control, ESP, premium leather.
This sports utility vehicle has an advanced Meridian sound system with a single slot CD player, MP3 disc, file compatibility, USB interface and i-Pod port. This music system supports Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming. The high resolution 8-inch touch screen display has various controls for convenience.

The owners can add many more features for their convenience like rear view camera, navigation system, i-Pad holder, rear seat entertainment system, coat hanger, load space aperture net, seat back storage, luggage compartment mat, rigid load space protector and so on. On the other hand, we can also customize the exteriors by adding illuminated tread plates, mud flaps, stainless steel exhaust finisher, stylish body graphics, hood decals, side protection tubes and primed mirror caps.
Ed's take: The ride and handling characteristics of the Evoque are good, as the ride is plush like any Range Rover and the handling is just like a sedan
This sports utility vehicle has a reliable braking and suspension mechanism, which keeps it well balanced and stable at all times. All its wheels are fitted with powerful disc brakes that are accompanied with high performance calipers. In order to enhance the braking mechanism, the company has incorporated it with several advanced aspects like anti-lock braking system along with electronic brake force distribution and emergency brake assist system. It also features cornering brake control, dynamic and roll stability control, electric parking brake and trailer stability assist function.

While other trim gets a sturdy set of 18-inch, 7-spoke alloy wheels. These rims are further fitted with 235/60 R18 sized terrain capable tubeless radial tyres. The manufacturer has affixed a full size spare wheel in the boot compartment with all other tools required for changing a flat tyre. It is a standard feature across all the variants.
