Review

It’s easy to forget that only a short while ago the suggestion of a sub-140g/km Range Rover would have seemed laughable.

Land Rover has managed to take what was already an impressive 144g/km on the four-wheel drive version to 133g/km on the five-door eD4.

A 75kg weight reduction helps reduce CO2 emission and in its two-wheel guise makes it a contender for user-chooser lists with companies that might have 4WD restrictions in place.

There’s a £750 price difference between the five-door 4WD and its 2WD equivalent so customers could potentially save money, get improved fuel economy and benefit from lower taxation.

At 133g/km, it means it’s in the 20% benefit in kind tax band for the current tax year and with a P11D value of £28,520, a 40% tax payer will be looking at a bill of £190.17 per month, while a 20% taxpayer would expect to pay £95.08 a month.

The Pure specification is the base level trim but the standard kit list is pretty impressive and includes climate control, cruise control, electric adjustment for the driver’s seat, audio controls on the steering wheel, electrically adjustable and heated wing mirrors, heated front seats, leather trim, parking sensors, sat-nav and Bluetooth connectivity.

Our version includes the rear view camera at a cost of £300 and the fixed panoramic roof which is well worth the additional £790.

As far as fuel economy is concerned, it’s still struggling to hit the quoted figures.

Driving around town the Evoque has fallen to a new low of 30mpg, while on the motorway the 2.2-litre engine continue to performs much better, but at 55mpg it is still shy of Land Rover’s quoted 62.8mpg.
