For most of its history, Land Rover has built large, boxy SUVs that placed an unapologetic priority on outstanding off-road performance. In recent years, however, the British automaker has given its utilitarian vehicles a new sense of on-road luxury and style. And none is more stylish than the Range Rover Evoque, released in 2012.
For the 2013 model year, the compact and agile Evoque receives only a few changes that could easily go unnoticed: the addition of the new Pure trim level, a slightly revised grille and off-road guidance in its navigation system. The Pure trim level is joined by the Pure Plus trim level, which is more like the base model we saw in 2012.
The Range Rover Evoque's base trim level is Pure, but it is luxurious nonetheless. Standard features include: power and heated side-view mirrors with integrated turn signals and puddle lamps; tinted glass; automatic headlights; a rear spoiler; 19-inch alloy wheels; power front seats with partial leather upholstery; a rearview camera; automatic climate control; an auto-dimming rearview mirror; customizable ambient lighting; a Meridian sound system with 380 watts, 11 speakers, iPod connection and AM/FM/CD/MP3 capabilities; and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with stereo, Bluetooth and cruise control buttons.
The Pure Plus trim level adds a few key features to the Pure's standard equipment list: LED fog lights; headlight washers; adaptive xenon headlights; a fixed panoramic glass roof; a universal garage door opener; a full-leather interior; and a folding center console.

Peppy four-cylinder engine, only 6.2 seconds to 60 mph and better mpg, but faux leather
Lower price, decked-out cabin and roomier interior, but not as agile and underpowered base engine
Powerful base V6, good mpg and zippy to 60 mph, but standard front-wheel drive and borderline luxury status
Powerful optional engines, unique look and low price, but poor mpg, sluggish to 60 mph and not too agile
