Safety

Both the Range Rover Evoque and Golf Alltrack 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 Golf Alltrack’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.

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 Golf Alltrack 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.

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 Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the Range Rover Evoque and the Golf Alltrack have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available blind spot warning systems and rear cross-path warning.

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque weighs 540 to 724 pounds more than the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. The NHTSA advises that heavier vehicles are much safer in collisions than their significantly lighter counterparts.

Warranty

The Range Rover Evoque comes with free roadside assistance for 4 years 50,000 miles. Land Rover will send help if you run out of gas, need a jump-start, lock your keys in or need any assistance on the road. Volkswagen doesn’t give free roadside assistance for the Golf Alltrack.

Engine

The Range Rover Evoque’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. produces 78 more horsepower (246 vs. 168) and 70 lbs.-ft. more torque (269 vs. 199) than the Golf Alltrack’s 1.8 turbo 4 cyl. The Range Rover Evoque R-Dynamic’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. hybrid produces 128 more horsepower (296 vs. 168) and 96 lbs.-ft. more torque (295 vs. 199) than the Golf Alltrack’s 1.8 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 Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the Range Rover Evoque’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

The Range Rover Evoque has 3.2 gallons more fuel capacity than the Golf Alltrack (17.7 vs. 14.5 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

Transmission

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque comes standard with an automatic transmission, for driver comfort, especially in the city. Automatic costs extra on the Golf Alltrack.

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 Golf Alltrack.

Brakes and Stopping

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

Evoque

Golf Alltrack

Front Rotors

13.7 inches

11.3 inches

Rear Rotors

11.8 inches

10.7 inches

Opt Rear Rotors

12.8 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 Golf Alltrack are solid, not vented.

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Range Rover Evoque has larger standard tires than the Golf Alltrack (235/60R18 vs. 205/55R17). The Range Rover Evoque’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Golf Alltrack (245/45R21 vs. 225/45R18).

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Evoque has standard 18-inch wheels. Smaller 17-inch wheels are standard on the Golf Alltrack. The Range Rover Evoque’s optional 21-inch wheels are larger than the 18-inch wheels optional on the Golf Alltrack.

Suspension and Handling

The Range Rover Evoque has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The Golf Alltrack’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

The Range Rover Evoque offers an optional driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads or off-road. The Golf Alltrack’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Range Rover Evoque’s wheelbase is 2.1 inches longer than on the Golf Alltrack (105.6 inches vs. 103.5 inches).

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover Evoque is 3.1 inches wider in the front and 4.5 inches wider in the rear than on the Golf Alltrack.

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover Evoque has a 1.4 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Golf Alltrack (8.3 vs. 6.9 inches), allowing the Range Rover Evoque to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Chassis

The Range Rover Evoque is 8.1 inches shorter than the Golf Alltrack, making the Range Rover Evoque easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Passenger Space

The Range Rover Evoque has .3 inches more front headroom, .7 inches more front shoulder room and 1.5 inches more rear shoulder room than the Golf Alltrack.

Cargo Capacity

To make loading and unloading groceries and cargo easier, especially for short adults, the Range Rover Evoque SE/HSE has a standard power liftgate, which opens and closes automatically by pressing a button, or optionally by just kicking your foot under the back bumper, completely leaving your hands free. The Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer a power liftgate.

Towing

The Range Rover Evoque has a 3968 lbs. towing capacity. The Golf Alltrack has no towing capacity.

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 Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

When three different drivers share the Range Rover Evoque, the optional memory system makes it convenient for all three. Each setting activates different, customized memories for the driver and front passenger’s seat positions, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle. The Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer a memory system.

The Range Rover Evoque’s optional easy entry system raises the steering wheel and 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 Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

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 Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

The Range Rover Evoque’s power parking brake sets with one touch and releases with one touch or automatically. The Golf Alltrack has a lever-type parking brake that has to be strenuously raised to engage properly. It has to be lifted up more and a button depressed to release it.

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 Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Range Rover Evoque has a standard rear fixed intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the Golf Alltrack only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

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 Golf Alltrack 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 Golf Alltrack’s mirrors don’t automatically adjust for backing.

The Range Rover Evoque has standard automatic dimming rear and side view mirrors which automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Golf Alltrack offers an automatic rear view mirror, but its side mirrors don’t dim.

Both the Range Rover Evoque and the Golf Alltrack offer available heated front seats. The Range Rover Evoque also offers optional heated rear seats to keep those passengers extremely comfortable in the winter. Heated rear seats aren’t available in the Golf Alltrack.

Optional air-conditioned seats in the Range Rover Evoque HSE keep the driver and front passenger comfortable and take the sting out of hot seats in summer. The Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats.

On extremely cold winter days, the Range Rover Evoque’s optional heated steering wheel provides comfort, allowing the driver to steer safely and comfortably before the vehicle heater warms up. The Golf Alltrack doesn’t offer a heated steering wheel.

The Range Rover Evoque has a standard dual zone air conditioning allows the driver and front passenger to choose two completely different temperatures so people with different temperature preferences won’t have to compromise. This makes both the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. Dual zone air conditioning is only available on the Golf Alltrack SEL.
