Evoque drives like a car, not an SUV

With its all-aluminum 240-horsepower engine, the Range Rover Evoque buzzes up to speed with a satisfying push in the back. It has gobs of low-end torque yet it revs with gusto. The transmission is a ZF nine-speed automatic with Normal, Sport and Manual shift modes. A clever all-wheel-drive system lets the driver choose settings for general driving, gravel or snow, sand and mud and ruts. The interior is plush and cozy, and the front seats were among the best I have sampled this year.
