I have yet to find one. But I have heard that a cobalt is one might work and a focus ST should work given they share a similar engine. The roadblocks I've read are that the Evoque has some advanced sensors that tend to be problematic for installing performance upgrades. In other words, MAF and 02 sensors might freak out when you start shoving cleaner, more cold air into the engine.

Sorry to necro this thread but I thought Id update. With CAI mod. While they wont set off a CEL, the airbox is slightly different in where it mounts. However, it uses the same box. * for a free mod you can open up the port on the bottom, this will allow more colder air when your going 20-30 mph because the hole is smaller it should act as secondary.

I am currently prototyping - and fabricated my own CAI, I had a shop Cut the Hood Vent holes out ( which all evoques have) and installed oem like hood vents with the mesh cut out. I cut the factory box where it connects to the first filter and RTV'd the shit out of it, I then fabricated a small pan to catch any water because its right about electrical. Overall, I am seeing intake temperatures usually 0-8 degree usually 5ish above ambient. Because the box is under vacuum and the piping decreases size it will be under increased vacuum. The advantage of this is that the new intake sits 3 or 4 inches under the vent. At high speeds it will depressurize the engine bay and allow that colder to escape from the top while siphoning some of it. At slow speeds its sits close enough to draw in air from the top. 20191005_123129.jpg 20191005_123116.jpg

Im still working on making enhancements and measure the effect.
