As you'll see below, the latest incarnation of the Range Rover Evoque boasts both excellent safety scores from independent crash-testing and a suite of the latest active driver-assistance systems to help avoid a crash happening in the first place. Reliability is less clear-cut, unfortunately; while the hybrid model uses relatively new technology, quite a large proportion of Land Rover owners report faults in customer surveys.

Range Rover Evoque PHEV reliability & problems

No individual Land Rover or Range Rover models were ranked in the 2020 edition of the Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, as not enough owners responded for a statistically significant picture to emerge. However, Land Rover overall was rated 25th of 30 brands ranked, with a satisfaction score of 88%. The proportion of owners reporting a fault was pretty high, though, at 33.8%, which is well above many other manufacturers, some of which have single-digit fault rates.

Safety

While there are question marks over Land Rover reliability, safety shouldn't be an issue with the Evoque, as the model overall scored 94% and 87% respectively in the adult and child occupant protection portions of the Euro NCAP crash-testing regime, on its way to a five-star overall rating. Its safety assistance systems scored 73%; these include the standard 3D surround camera, cruise control with speed limiter, front and rear parking sensors and traffic-sign recognition, while higher-spec models get features like blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, adaptive cruise control.
