Range Rover Evoque is 2012 Best Compact SUV

The Range Rover Evoque has come to define the Compact SUV and this award just goes to prove it.

With its long record of over 100 international awards, the Range Rover Evoque is by far one of the hottest cars on the market today.

The 2012 Best Compact SUV accolade was awarded to the Evoque as it displays both style and efficiency.

Its compact exterior design has come to be an instantly recognisable quality of the Evoque as it is unique to any other car on the market with slicked back contours and a muscular body shape.

Auto Express editor-in-chief, Steve Fowler, said: “Last year’s Car of the Year is still the one to beat and easily keeps hold of its Best Compact SUV title.

“The Evoque is all about style, quality and driver appeal. It turns heads like little else, is built superbly and is great fun to drive – a truly brilliant all-rounder.”

The Evoque also offers an efficient 2.2-litre diesel powertrain which has been praised by Diesel Car Magazine as they voted it Car of the Year 2012.

The 2.2-litre eD4 diesel comes with both 150bhp and 190bhp power outputs. With this engine the Evoque emits just 129g/km and has an average fuel consumption of 56.5mpg.

The Range Rover Evoque starts from just £27,995.

Range Rover vehicles are available from Perry’s Range Rover dealerships.
