Safety

Both the Range Rover Evoque and MKC 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 MKC’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 MKC.

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 MKC only offers a rear monitor and front and rear parking sensors that beep or flash a light. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the sides.

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

Warranty

The Range Rover Evoque’s corrosion warranty is 1 year longer than the MKC’s (6 vs. 5 years).

Engine

The Range Rover Evoque R-Dynamic’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. hybrid produces 51 more horsepower (296 vs. 245) and 20 lbs.-ft. more torque (295 vs. 275) than the MKC’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.

Fuel Economy and Range

On the EPA test cycle the Evoque gets better fuel mileage than the MKC:

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

Regardless of its engine, the Range Rover Evoque’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) Lincoln only offers an automatic engine start/stop system on the MKC 2.0 Turbo.

The Range Rover Evoque has 2 gallons more fuel capacity than the MKC (17.7 vs. 15.7 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

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 six-speed automatic is available for the MKC.

Brakes and Stopping

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

13.2 inches

The Range Rover Evoque R-Dynamic’s standard front and rear disc brakes are vented to help dissipate heat for shorter stops with less fading. The rear discs on the MKC are solid, not vented.

Tires and Wheels

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Evoque offers optional 21-inch wheels. The MKC’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 1.6 inches wider in the front and 1.7 inches wider in the rear than on the MKC.

Chassis

The Range Rover Evoque is 7.1 inches shorter than the MKC, making the Range Rover Evoque easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Passenger Space

The Range Rover Evoque has .6 inches more front shoulder room and .1 inches more rear shoulder room than the MKC.

Towing

The Range Rover Evoque’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the MKC’s (3968 vs. 2000 pounds).

Ergonomics

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the MKC, 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 offers an optional heads-up display that projects speed and navigation instruction readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The MKC doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

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 MKC’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 MKC 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 MKC doesn’t offer headlight washers.

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 MKC’s mirrors don’t automatically adjust for backing.

Economic Advantages

Insurance will cost less for the Range Rover Evoque owner. The Car Book by Jack Gillis rates the Range Rover Evoque with a number “3” insurance rate while the MKC is rated higher at a number “10” rate.

According to The Car Book by Jack Gillis, the Range Rover Evoque is less expensive to operate than the MKC because typical repairs cost much less on the Range Rover Evoque than the MKC, including $256 less for a water pump, $88 less for a muffler, $373 less for a timing belt/chain and $895 less for a power steering pump.
