Les Potts said, I went into this course thinking the Range Rover Evoque would be a upmarket Freelander 2, how wrong was I. The Evoque is a proper Range Rover with technology that overshadows even the latest Vogue in some key areas. The Evoque is a well thought out design and as the sales have shown so far is guaranteed to be a hit for Land Rover. I have attended many product launches with Land Rover but have never felt as positive about a product as I have with the Evoque.
