General Land Rover Defender reviews for Uganda

The Evoque was facelifted in 2014, but it kept its overall styling the same. However, the line-up has been expanded with new interior and exterior colours, new trims and a subtly redesigned badge on the boot lid and grille. The MY17 updates added infotainment upgrades, as well as a new Ember Special Edition, with gloss red and black details for the exterior styling.

While the cabin looks good, it’s also pretty well equipped. You get heated leather seats as standard and two-zone climate control is also included. Plus, there are plenty of extras you can add.

One downside of Evoque ownership used to be that you had to use Land Rover’s rather dated infotainment system, which still lags behind BMW’s iDrive system for functionality. However a round of updates for the 2017 Model Year brought in JLR's InControl Touch Pro system, which is much improved and features HD graphics with pinch-to-zoom functionality.

Getting to the boot space and comfort, the Range Rover Evoque is by no means small, at almost five meters long and two meters high. It's no surprise then, that there's plenty of space for passengers

It's worth noting that the low-slung roofline on the Evoque means headroom is a bit tight, and shallow side windows create a slightly hemmed-in feel when you sit in the rear.

Look elsewhere in the cabin and you’ll discover plenty of useful storage space and a number of handy cup-holders. The five-door Evoque is spacious enough thanks to its vast 420-litre boot, but rivals are more spacious.
