If you\u2019ve not heard about the Range Rover Evoque before now, you\u2019ve clearly been living under a rock for the past few weeks. In car-world terms, the media storm around the Evoque has been similar to the kind the guys in Cupertino create every time they invite the world\u2019s media in for a chat. A few of you placed orders months ago, without setting foot behind the wheel. And the waiting list for one is months long. So let\u2019s get down to business: is it any good? In a word, yes.Those looks? Range Rover, but downsized and with a modern twist. This is a Gucci dress to the full Range Rover\u2019s Barbour tweed jacket. The Evoque even wears designer specs (those distinctive LED running lights) and has a Mini-like \u2018floating roof\u2019 that you can spec in three contrast colours. Whether you think it\u2019s cool or far too tarted-up will depend entirely on where you live (clue, if you own any land, you\u2019ll be in the latter camp).The interior is snug yet spacious, luxurious but modern. Those seats grip and hold you tightly and the window line\u2019s much higher than any Range Rover before. Yet this is a brilliantly packaged car too \u2013 it might look tight in the back from the outside but it fits two six-footers in no problem. Whatever you do, don\u2019t forgo the panoramic roof option \u2013 especially if you regularly carry people in the back \u2013 it completely changes the interior\u2019s feel.Kit-wise, you\u2019ve two USB ports with full on app-based phone streaming capability, DAB radio, two 12v ports in the centre bin. If you go for one of the two higher spec Dynamic or Prestige trim levels (we\u2019d recommend that by the way), you get a touch-screen, voice controlled Sat nav system and parking aids front and rear. Add the (\u00a34325 option) Lux pack, and you get powered tailgate, panoramic roof, an upgraded stereo, keyless entry, park assist, an upgraded, dual-view touschreen which allows the passenger to watch TV while the driver sees the nav and \u2013 the best bit \u2013 a five camera system, which allows you to see all around the car.This comes in particularly useful when trekking up a Scottish mountain, like the course Range Rover had set up to prove the Evoque can sign the cheques the family DNA writes. Most of you won\u2019t care about this though, and if we\u2019d just dropped \u00a340k on a boutique, style-led car, we\u2019d hardly risk fording rivers in it either. Still, nice to know the car will get you there, wherever \u2018there\u2019 might be.On road, the Evoque\u2019s is refined and drives well for an SUV. Range Rover wants to attract drivers currently in cars like the Audi TT to buy this next, and while it lacks the driving excitement that kind of car offers it is better than the more obvious SUV opposition - a BMW X1 for instance. Stick with the 190bhp 2.2 diesel engine and you won\u2019t go too far wrong, it\u2019s quick enough, reasonably economical and CO2 friendly enough for the tax not to sting. Just remember this is more a car for catching admiring glances outside Edinburgh\u2019s new Missoni hotel than for ripping up tarmac.And that neatly sums up the Evoque. It\u2019s a fashion product. Many of you are sold just on the looks, others hate it for what it says. Yet to say it\u2019s fashionable isn\u2019t to knock it, because this is one of those products that just feels right and makes you feel great behind the wheel.When BMW relaunched the Mini in 2001, that car had a similar impact. So too did Audi\u2019s original TT. People said they were fashion cars; flashes in the pan whose appeal would wane with time. Yet those people were proved wrong and we suspect a similar thing will be true of Evoque. If you\u2019re the kind of person who has to have the latest thing, then right now, this is the only car to be seen in. But if you need a practical, long term relationship then there\u2019s a depth of quality here that we suspect will make this a great car to be in and live with over years of ownership.
