What's new: All-new model; most fuel-efficient Land Rover model
The Range Rover Evoque went on sale in October. The "most fuel-efficient Land Rover" historically wouldn't be saying much, because the brand relied on big, thirsty V-8 engines. But the Range Rover Evoque has a turbocharged, direct-injected, 2-liter engine, like a growing number of sporty European sedans.
It's powerful for its size, at 240 horsepower. Together with a six-speed automatic transmission, the four-cylinder gets a respectable EPA-estimated 18 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. There's also a two-door coupe version. Land Rover hasn't turned its back on off-road capability as an SUV. U.S. models come with all-wheel drive and with push-button settings for different conditions, like snow, mud or sand.
