    Considering purchase, Narrowed it down to 2

    Considering an Evoque purchase but torn between two vehicles at the moment.
    Both cars are similar price maybe $300-400 difference in the bottom line price.

    The Evoque is a 2013 5-door Pure premium pure plus with climate comfort and sat radio.
    Santorini Black - Ebony

    vs

    2013 BMW X5 35i Base + NAV
    Jet black - black (Leatherette)

    I don't know how I got to cross shopping both of these cars the size difference is huge.
    I feel there's no wrong choice both seem to be very high quality vehicles.

    The vehicle will be a DD for me, my wife, and 4yo daughter
    No plans to take it off road
    Coming from a 2012 STI sedan DD


    Just looking for opinions, personal experiences and any comments to persuade me in any direction

    Thanks!

    I cannot speak about the BMW X5 but I can elaborate on the Evoque. I have the dynamic with all the bells and whistles. I truly love the vehicle. I am passionate about what I own and the Evoque is up there as one of the best vehicles on the market today. The interior is so well done that it breadths " upscale". The exterior looks are undeniably the most futuristic of all the SUVs out there. The 240 hp motor has a great pickup with little or no turbo lag. I have owned my vehicle for nine months and I have not had one reliability issue. I have a Santorini black exterior and a two tone black and pimento interior. The Range Rover cache , in my opinion, trumps a BMW SUV.

    Z4Dave I have both of these vehicles in my carport so I can provide some feedback. Regarding my Evoque (see signature); it's a more exclusive vehicle, it's a sportier ride, more nimble, with better gas mileage, pretty comparable acceleration but more apparent turbo lag and the higher line models are finished with better interior materials. The X5 (a 2012 35i Premium) is bigger (better utility value), more comfortable seats (with the Multi Contour Seat option), an operable Panoramic sunroof, a smoother linear power delivery with a better mechanical sound, a little firmer ride quality (partially attributable to run flat tires) and a little more trouble free than the Evoque. In a nutshell I believe it's a comparison of a sporty crossover compared to a utility SUV. I don't believe you will go wrong with either vehicle. Good luck!
    2012 5 Door, Santorini Black over Lunar/Ivory Interior, Dynamic Premium Package, Climate Comfort Pack, Satellite & HD Radio, Style 7 20" Shadow Chrome Wheels with Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season tires, RR Wheel Locks, XPel Clear Paint Protection, Lexerd Infotainment Screen Saver, RR Loadspace Rubber Mat, Lloyd's Clear Carpet Mats and Escort Solo Radar Protection. Now that's the way I roll.

    The 2013 Evoque is seems a fairly decent leap in "sorted-out-ness" over previous years. Mine is a Dynamic with MagneRide (one of the main reasons I bought it and which you cannot get on many cars). This car is, indeed, a sports sedan (especially with the MagneRide) first, and a very capable 4x4 second. I looked at everything in the class before buying. This is our 8th LR product and we have had great luck with the brand.

    Hope I have similar luck. Should pick up my Range Rover Evoque this weekend. Fuji white with ebony interior with climate comfort pack and HD radio. Didn't want or need the other bells and whistles. Plenty of desert to roam here in Arizona. I'll give you an update, when I've logged a few miles both on and off road.
