I'm having a hard time figuring how large, or small I should say, it is. Are there any pictures out there of an Evoque next to another compact SUV or maybe a Range Rover Sport or Cayenne?

Curious about this myself. Would like to see it come in a bit larger then the LR3 but I'm afraid it will actually be smaller... but hard to tell in the pictures.

Specs from the LR website gives the 5-door a Length of 4365mm; Height 1713mm and width 1965mm (excl mirrors). This compares to a Freelander 2's (LR2) specs of Length 4500mm; Height 1740mm and width 2005mm (excl mirrors). So yeah, it will be smaller than a Freelander 2 (LR2). Boot space is supposedly similar to the BMW X1 at 420 litres.

Sweet, thanks for that. Smaller then I was hoping for... but I guess I need to see it in person.

So who are the competitors for the Evoque? I read that it is pitched at the X3 and Q5 (and certainly looks that way price-wise), but in terms of size, it is up against the X1 and Q3. Would people pay a premium for a smallish SUV? Certainly seems that way if the orderbooks are anything to go by.

That's a good question! For the price you'd think it would have to be a bit larger and compete directly with the X3 and Q5.

The 3dr is the about size of the nissan qashqai mabey slightly taller, and the 5dr is a little bit taller still, not a very big car however the cabin space is very clever as it still maintains very good ground clearance because it sits on 18" alloys, its very good the way the space has been designed to have enough space inside but still be light and have enough clearance to pass as a land rover, I have been lucky enough to see and have a look around a few.... Perks of living near one of the JLR test drivers who has a different variation each night of the week. Any further queries i probably will be able to help.

No problems I see it every day now, it is 100% true to the internet images, every detail is the same inside and out, the pictures of the final production lrx which has been dubbed "Evoque" appear exactly how the customers will recieve the car, i will dig out my camera, i have about 30 snaps of the 3dr in silver with the trademark chrome alloys, the s14 spec level (Highest Spec) vogue equivalent

Snaps.... Enjoy

Evoque 3dr pictures by harleycheetham - Photobucket

Have a good look, i will get some of the 5dr when it is here soon, Plenty of close ups here including the addition on the reversing cam, autodimming mirrors and the Entertainment systems

Also have a look at the tax disc, the "so called" green land rover costs £215 to tax for 12 months, doesnt sound as good as first indicated.


DVLA are showing limited information on the registration plate, other than 2000cc, date of registration and tax price the make and model is not registered

The car was registered in worcester in the seven valley, not sure why really because they are produced in merseyside

Thanks for the pics! I went head and added some photos with the IMG tags so that they would embed properly for you :)

Have you ridden in the car? If so, how's the ride?

Nope unfortunately I haven't quite plucked up the courage to approach the guy, the best it has got is sneaking a few snaps at night when its on the road and not in his garage hidden

Would love to get a ride though, i can imagine it would be like riding megan fox ;-)

I'd be willing to bet that the guy would be honored to give you a ride, so he can show off his companies product and hopefully win a customer. If I were him, that's what I'd be thinking!
