New to site
I'm not actually an Evoque owner yet but I expect to be soon. I am looking at used Evoques (2013 to 2015)... I am actually going to look at one today (white exterior, black interior, Pure Premium, 2013), leaving in about an hour or so. I have already found great info on this website (specifically about installing both roof rails and a trailer hitch, which I would plan to do). My wife and I both really like the style of the Evoque - my only concern is cargo capacity which is why I am looking at the roof rails and hitch.
I'm coming off a BMW X3... nice but not as interesting as the Evoque (although definitely more cargo space). Before that we had the Infiniti FX35 (now called the QX70) which is comparable size-wise to the Evoque.
Thanks for posting all the helpful info on this site.

Tony, Welcome to the forum.
Good luck on your hunt for an Evoque of the color and spec, that you and your wife both like.
Welcome. When I was shopping for a small suv, I liked the exterior design of the Evo more than the other choices in the segment. Still enjoying it after 2 years.
It's a beautiful SUV, but cargo space is so limited. IF the rear was 2-4" longer it would be acceptable. The Discovery has just enough room but it's cheap interior and funky rear sides is a deal breaker for me. I owned a 2015 for 18 months and just sold it. Fienzie Red color. Loved the design, loved the handling, hated the limited space. If the throttle control was linear and I never got that tranny update that killed the downshifting, then I likely would have kept it.
Just following up - last month we went to another dealership to look at another Evoque. Our only concern was the cargo size and, while at the dealership, we came across a Discovery Sport. Not quite as unique and cool looking as the Evoque but we really liked it. So we decided to go that route, just placed a custom order (yes, during that time we also decided to buy new rather than pre-owned).
Enjoy your Evoques!
