Safety

Both the Range Rover Evoque and XT4 have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Range Rover Evoque has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The XT4’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Range Rover Evoque. But it costs extra on the XT4.

The Range Rover Evoque’s 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 XT4 doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the Range Rover Evoque and the XT4 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

Engine

The Range Rover Evoque’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. produces 9 more horsepower (246 vs. 237) and 11 lbs.-ft. more torque (269 vs. 258) than the XT4’s 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. The Range Rover Evoque R-Dynamic’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. hybrid produces 59 more horsepower (296 vs. 237) and 37 lbs.-ft. more torque (295 vs. 258) than the XT4’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 XT4 doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

The Range Rover Evoque has 1.8 gallons more fuel capacity than the XT4 FWD’s standard fuel tank (17.7 vs. 15.9 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups. The Range Rover Evoque has 1.4 gallons more fuel capacity than the XT4 AWD’s standard fuel tank (17.7 vs. 16.3 gallons).

Brakes and Stopping

For better stopping power the Range Rover Evoque’s front brake rotors are larger than those on the XT4:

Tires and Wheels

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Evoque offers optional 21-inch wheels. The XT4’s largest wheels are only 20-inches.

Suspension and Handling

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover Evoque is .8 inches wider in the front and 1.1 inches wider in the rear than on the XT4.

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover Evoque has a 1.5 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the XT4 (8.3 vs. 6.8 inches), allowing the Range Rover Evoque to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Chassis

The Range Rover Evoque is 9 inches shorter than the XT4, making the Range Rover Evoque easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Cargo Capacity

The Range Rover Evoque has a larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the XT4 with its rear seat folded (50.5 vs. 48.9 cubic feet).

Towing

The Range Rover Evoque’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the XT4’s (3968 vs. 2500 pounds).

Ergonomics

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the XT4 Premium/Sport, the Range Rover Evoque offers an optional driver and passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The Range Rover Evoque’s front and rear power windows all open or close with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside of the car. The XT4’s rear power window switches have to be held the entire time to close them fully.

The Range Rover Evoque’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The XT4 Luxury’s standard intermittent wipers change speed with vehicle speed, but can’t turn on and off or change speed based on changing rainfall.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the Range Rover Evoque to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The XT4 doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Range Rover Evoque offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The XT4 doesn’t offer headlight washers.

Recommendations
