Safety Comparison

The Range Rover Evoque offers optional Intelligent Emergency Braking, which use forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision ahead. If the driver doesn’t react and the system determines a collision is imminent, it automatically applies the brakes at full-force in order to reduce the force of the crash or avoid it altogether. The Allroad doesn't offer collision warning or crash mitigation brakes.

The Range Rover Evoque offers an optional Surround Camera System to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The Allroad only offers a rear monitor and rear parking sensors that beep or flash a light. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the front or sides.

To help make backing safer, the Range Rover Evoque’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Allroad doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the Range Rover Evoque and the Allroad have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, plastic fuel tanks, all wheel drive, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.

Tires and Wheels Comparison

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Evoque has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the Allroad. The Range Rover Evoque’s optional 20-inch wheels are larger than the 19-inch wheels optional on the Allroad.

Suspension and Handling Comparison

The Range Rover Evoque offers an optional driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads or off-road. The Allroad’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover Evoque is 1.6 inches wider in the front and 2.1 inches wider in the rear than on the Allroad.

For better maneuverability, the Range Rover Evoque’s turning circle is .6 feet tighter than the Allroad’s (37.1 feet vs. 37.7 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover Evoque has a 1.2 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Allroad (8.3 vs. 7.1 inches), allowing the Range Rover Evoque to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Chassis Comparison

The Range Rover Evoque is 1 foot, 2.4 inches shorter than the Allroad, making the Range Rover Evoque easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Cargo Capacity Comparison

The Range Rover Evoque has a larger cargo area with its rear seat folded than the Allroad with its rear seat folded (51 vs. 50.5 cubic feet).

Ergonomics Comparison

The Range Rover Evoque’s standard easy entry system glides the driver’s seat back, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The Allroad doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

On a hot day the Range Rover Evoque’s driver can lower all the windows using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Allroad can’t use the remote to operate the windows.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Range Rover Evoque has a standard rear fixed intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the Allroad only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors available for the Range Rover Evoque detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Allroad doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

When the Range Rover Evoque is put in reverse, both rearview mirrors tilt from their original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirrors into their original positions. The Allroad’s mirrors don’t automatically adjust for backing.

The Range Rover Evoque has a standard dual zone air conditioning allows the driver and front passenger to choose two completely different temperatures so people with different temperature preferences won’t have to compromise. This makes both the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. Dual zone air conditioning costs extra on the Allroad.

To help keep rear passengers entertained, the Range Rover Evoque offers optional rear seat controls for the radio. The Allroad doesn’t offer rear seat audio controls.

The Range Rover Evoque’s optional Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Allroad doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
