Safety

The Honda CR-V has Daytime Running Lights to help keep it more visible under all conditions. Canadian government studies show that driving with lights during the day reduces accidents by 11% by making vehicles more conspicuous. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer Daytime Running Lights.

Both the CR-V and the Range Rover Evoque have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, rearview cameras, available all wheel drive, crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, rear cross-path warning and driver alert monitors.

For its top level performance in all IIHS frontal, side, rear impact and roof-crush tests, with its optional front crash prevention system, and its available headlight’s “Acceptable” rating, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety grants the CR-V the rating of “Top Pick” for 2018, a rating granted to only 85 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The Range Rover Evoque has not been tested, yet.

Warranty

Honda’s powertrain warranty covers the CR-V 1 year and 10,000 miles longer than Land Rover covers the Range Rover Evoque. Any repair needed on the engine, transmission, axles, joints or driveshafts is fully covered for 5 years or 60,000 miles. Coverage on the Range Rover Evoque ends after only 4 years or 50,000 miles.

There are over 6 times as many Honda dealers as there are Land Rover dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the CR-V’s warranty.

Reliability

J.D. Power and Associates rated the CR-V third among compact suvs in their 2018 Initial Quality Study. The Range Rover Evoque isn’t in the top three in its category.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Honda vehicles are better in initial quality than Land Rover vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Honda 23rd in initial quality. With 58 more problems per 100 vehicles, Land Rover is ranked 31st.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Honda vehicles are more reliable than Land Rover vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Honda 12th in reliability, above the industry average. With 64 more problems per 100 vehicles, Land Rover is ranked 30th.

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Honda CR-V uses regular unleaded gasoline. The Range Rover Evoque requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

The CR-V has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

Transmission

The CR-V has a standard continuously variable transmission (CVT). With no “steps” between gears, it can keep the engine at the most efficient speed for fuel economy, or keep it at its peak horsepower indefinitely for maximum acceleration. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer a CVT.

Brakes and Stopping

The CR-V stops much shorter than the Range Rover Evoque:

Car and Driver

Chassis

The Honda CR-V may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 550 to 950 pounds less than the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque.

The front grille of the CR-V uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

The CR-V uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

Passenger Space

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the CR-V’s rear seats recline. The Range Rover Evoque’s rear seats don’t recline.

Cargo Capacity

The CR-V has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the Range Rover Evoque 5-Door with its rear seat up (39.2 vs. 20.3 cubic feet). The CR-V has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the Range Rover Evoque 5-Door with its rear seat folded (75.8 vs. 51 cubic feet).

The CR-V’s cargo area is larger than the Range Rover Evoque’s in every dimension:

Pressing a switch automatically lowers the CR-V’s rear seats, to make changing between passengers and cargo easier. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.

Ergonomics

The CR-V has a standard locking fuel door with a remote release located convenient to the driver. A locking fuel door helps prevent vandalism, such as sugar in the tank and fuel theft. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer a locking fuel door.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the CR-V has a standard rear wiper. The Range Rover Evoque Convertible doesn’t offer a rear wiper.

Consumer Reports rated the CR-V’s headlight performance “Good,” a higher rating than the Range Rover Evoque’s headlights, which were rated “Fair.”

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the CR-V has standard extendable sun visors. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer extendable visors.

Model Availability

The CR-V is available in both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer a two-wheel drive configuration.

Economic Advantages

According to The Car Book by Jack Gillis, the CR-V is less expensive to operate than the Range Rover Evoque because it costs $351 less to do the manufacturer’s suggested maintenance for 50,000 miles. Typical repairs cost much less on the CR-V than the Range Rover Evoque, including $41 less for a water pump, $308 less for a muffler, $129 less for front brake pads, $166 less for fuel injection, $203 less for a fuel pump, $370 less for front struts and $198 less for a timing belt/chain.
