First drive: Range Rover Evoque

Martyn Collins

All it took was a couple of short passenger rides on the Land Rover test track back in April, then I was convinced that the forthcoming Range Rover Evoque had to be one of the most exciting cars to be launched in 2011.

Could the production-ready version of the baby Range Rover live up to my expectations? Or would I be disappointed? Well, it's just four months on and I'm in Liverpool to drive the finished Evoque at the international launch to find out.
