Hello, I just joined and am planning on ordering a 2013 Evoque probably around December. I'm actually going to get it through the US military sales program, so it'll be waiting for me when I get back from my deployment! I'm still figuring out which trim I want to get--did any of you have trouble choosing between the oxford leather interior and the adaptive dynamics?

Welcome to the Forum, and thank you for your Service, I am retired Navy.

I had no trouble, one drive of an evoque with the adaptive dynamic suspension and I knew I had to have it.:cool:

See, now you'll get nothing but conflicting opinions!! ;)The Oxford leather is amazing. Still smells awesome after 10,000 miles. Even more important, I found the standard leather stiff and cheap looking. The Oxford leather is soft, durable, and feels like a leather chair in a luxurious home. You use that every time you drive, unlike the adaptive dynamics.

Please check out my photo album- there I a good pic of the leather in there.

When you test drive one wiht Dynamic suspension, make sure you do a tight curvey road and some good bumps.:cool:

Test drove a dynamic today. The salesman wanted to keep miles low, so I could only go around the block. Nevertheless, I could definitely tell that teh dynamic mode completely flattens the vehicle out during quick lane changes and cornering. I just don't understand why this isn't a stand-alone option on the prestige here, like it is in the UK!

I do agree it would be nice if it was a stand alone option. For me, dynamic was a must have, I live on a very twisty hilly road.:cool: Most road by my are very curvy, in the hills of East TN.

For those of you who've owned a dynamic for a while, how is your seat leather and dash material looking?

The interior in my dynamic seems to be holding up well. I have had it for 8 months, but it does not see lots of miles.

Well, drove my wife by the dealership to try and convince her that Colima Lime was a legitimate color. No dice. I guess it's going to be Orkney Grey!

Re-reading the MT SUVOTY article, I note they criticize the Dynamic for a harsh ride. Anyone with a Dynamic think the ride could be more compliant?

I do not think it is harsh at all. I feel it is more firm, like a german sport sedan.

I personally really like the ride.

I must agree with Evocurious; The Prestige model with the higher end leather was the way I went. Once I saw it, I had to have it. I am happy with the way the vehicle handles as it is.

Well it seems consumers reports is not happy with the ride on the Evoque.

Best and worst cars of 2012 - Yahoo! Autos

Range Rover Evoque

With its cool, eye-catching styling, this new crossover SUV has created a lot of buzz. We liked the Range Rover Evoque's quick acceleration, decent fuel economy, and nicely finished cabin. But those high points can’t mask its many weaknesses, including a cramped cabin, a choppy ride, and artificial-feeling steering. In our emergency-handling tests, it scored poorly. And that sleek styling takes a toll on practical consid­era­tions, resulting in compromised visibility, driving position, and controls.
I do not feel cramped in the cabin. I also think the ride is very good, dynamic on or off.

Seems to me, they just have an issue with Range Rover in general, they never have anything nice to say. Seems most other magazines and such rave about the evoque, and it quality and ride and handling. Several have picked it as SUV of the year.
