Safety

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 XC40.

Both the Range Rover Evoque and the XC40 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, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors, 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 59 more horsepower (246 vs. 187) and 48 lbs.-ft. more torque (269 vs. 221) than the XC40 T4’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. The Range Rover Evoque’s 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. produces 11 lbs.-ft. more torque (269 vs. 258) than the XC40 T5’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. The Range Rover Evoque R-Dynamic’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. hybrid produces 48 more horsepower (296 vs. 248) and 37 lbs.-ft. more torque (295 vs. 258) than the XC40 T5’s standard 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 XC40 doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

The Range Rover Evoque has 3.5 gallons more fuel capacity than the XC40 (17.7 vs. 14.2 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 an eight-speed automatic is available for the XC40.

Brakes and Stopping

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 XC40 are solid, not vented.

Tires and Wheels

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Evoque offers optional 21-inch wheels. The XC40’s largest wheels are only 20-inches.

Suspension and Handling

The Range Rover Evoque has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The XC40’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

Cargo Capacity

The Range Rover Evoque has a larger cargo volume than the XC40 with its rear seat up (21.5 vs. 20.7 cubic feet).

Towing

The Range Rover Evoque’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the XC40’s (3968 vs. 3500 pounds).

Ergonomics

Unlike the driver-only memory seat and mirrors in the XC40, 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 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 XC40 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 XC40 doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

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 XC40 doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats.

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 costs extra on the XC40.

Economic Advantages

According to The Car Book by Jack Gillis, the Range Rover Evoque is less expensive to operate than the XC40 because typical repairs cost less on the Range Rover Evoque than the XC40, including $98 less for a water pump, $22 less for a timing belt/chain and $95 less for a power steering pump.
