Safety

The Range Rover Evoque HSE/Autobiography’s optional driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Allroad doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

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

Reliability

To reliably start during all conditions and help handle large electrical loads, the Range Rover Evoque has a standard 700-amp battery. The Allroad’s 420-amp battery isn’t as powerful.

Engine

The Range Rover Evoque’s optional 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. produces 38 more horsepower (286 vs. 248) and 22 lbs.-ft. more torque (295 vs. 273) than the Allroad’s 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.

Fuel Economy and Range

Regenerative brakes improve the Range Rover Evoque’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Allroad doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

The Range Rover Evoque has 2.8 gallons more fuel capacity than the Allroad (18.1 vs. 15.3 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

Environmental Friendliness

In its Green Vehicle Guide, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rates the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque higher (7 out of 10) than the Audi Allroad (5). This means the Range Rover Evoque produces up to 8 pounds less smog-producing pollutants than the Allroad every 15,000 miles.

Transmission

A nine-speed automatic is standard on the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only a seven-speed automatic is available for the Allroad.

Brakes and Stopping

For better stopping power the Range Rover Evoque 286 HP’s front brake rotors are larger than those on the Allroad:

Tires and Wheels

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Evoque offers optional 20-inch wheels. The Allroad’s largest wheels are only 18-inches.

Suspension and Handling

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover Evoque is 1.7 inches wider in the front and 2.4 inches wider in the rear than on the Allroad.

The Range Rover Evoque 5-Door handles at .86 G’s, while the Allroad Premium Plus pulls only .81 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

For better maneuverability, the Range Rover Evoque’s turning circle is .8 feet tighter than the Allroad’s (37.3 feet vs. 38.1 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover Evoque has a 1.8 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Allroad (8.3 vs. 6.5 inches), allowing the Range Rover Evoque to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Chassis

The Range Rover Evoque is 1 foot, 3 inches shorter than the Allroad, making the Range Rover Evoque easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Ergonomics

The Range Rover Evoque has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Allroad doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

Unlike the driver-only memory seat and mirrors optional in the Allroad, the Range Rover Evoque offers an optional driver and passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The Range Rover Evoque’s optional easy entry system glides the driver’s seat back when the door is unlocked or the ignition is switched off, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The Allroad doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

If the windows are left open on the Range Rover Evoque the driver can close them all from a distance using the remote. On a hot day the driver can also lower the windows the same way. The driver of the Allroad can’t use the remote to operate the windows.

The Allroad’s cornering lamps activate a lamp on the front corner when the turn signal is activated. The Range Rover Evoque HSE/Autobiography’s optional adaptive cornering lights turn the actual headlight unit up to several degrees, depending on steering wheel angle and vehicle speed. This lights a significant distance into corners at any speed.

When the Range Rover Evoque with available tilt-down mirrors 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 (except SE)’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.

Model Availability

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque comes in four door and soft top bodystyles; the Audi Allroad isn’t available as a convertible.
