They even used Victoria Beckham to sell the Evoque. The cameraman told me to explain
who Victoria Beckham is. She’s the wife of soccer player David Beckham
and she’s a former Spice Girl. Who didn’t listen to the Spice Girls? I have to confess I still have a CD somewhere. That aside, this is a rolling fashion statement. This can be negative, but there are people who think
it’s cool to choose a car for the looks and image. This was and still is
a huge success for Range Rover. It’s a very affordable Range Rover
compared to the other models in the range. The Evoque is loosely based on the Land Rover
Freelander, but that doesn’t really matter. There isn’t much choice in engines;
not now, nor when it was introduced. There are a number of diesel engines
and only 1 gasoline engine. ENGINES
gasoline, diesel You see this in the number of cars
on Marktplaats. About 180 are for sale. Most have a diesel engine. The manual transmission is rare because it was
only available with the base model diesel engine. It’s the cheapest version, which is why
you see it more in the Netherlands. It is available as a convertible. It has been introduced recently.
And as a 5-door SUV and 3-door coupe. The roofline of this car is slanted,
so it’s not the most practical car ever. The 3-door version is even more unpractical.
Most cars for sale have 5 doors. Prices start at 26,000 euros and go
up to 90,000 euros for the new cars. PRICES
minimum, maximum The Evoque is an interesting car.
It scored low in some reliability statistics. It’s at the bottom. However, there are
no really big structural problems. A lot of small things can go wrong. This is
annoying when you just bought a new car, but a second-hand Evoque
is not very expensive to fix. What are the things to watch out for?
The leather upholstery is sensitive to wear. This depends on the color. The 3-door coupe isn’t very roomy
because of the slated roofline. I already talked about that,
but it’s something to keep in mind. An Evoque isn’t a spacious car.
The trunk isn’t very big for this kind of car. You get better looks in return. There are 2 suspension things to look at. This car has 20 inch rims. I don’t think
it’s uncomfortable, but some think it is. That’s something to try during a test drive.
Do you think it’s OK or do you prefer smaller rims? The suspension can make some sounds. This is mainly caused by anti-roll-bar
bushes and wishbone bushes. You’ll hear thumping and rattling
sounds on poor road surfaces. There are little complaints about the powertrain,
except for 1 thing. The Evoque has a 9-speed automatic transmission
since model year 2014 or 2015. There have been some issues with it. It shifts down slowly and doesn’t respond
to the throttle or flappy pedals very well. This is annoying. There have been software updates. These help sometimes, but there are still
complaints about a number of Evoques. It can be a difficult customer too. Make sure that the software is up-to-date in
an Evoque with 9-speed automatic transmission. This will give you the best experience. Another thing: A/C can fail,
in relatively new Evoques too. It’s easy to check by lowering the temperature
all the way. It should produce cold air. This is easier to test on a warm day,
else you’ll feel the cold outside air. A cold A/C will hurt your fingers;
it should be that cold. Interesting things can happen with the electronics.
There are different electronic errors. If you watch these videos regularly, you’ll test
everything. These cars have a lot of options. The electronic errors can be caused
by a loose main fuse. A bolt needs tightening. There can be electronic
errors when it’s not plugged in properly. The same goes for the reversing camera. Things fail when it gives an error.
Everything is connected. When you unplug it and all
the other problems are solved, that’s the cause and you’ll need
a new camera module. A car can have many problems,
caused by 2 simple things. I think the color combination
of this Evoque is brilliant. I’m not in the market for an Evoque and will probably
never be, but I think this is a cool version. Red out and in, the gasoline engine… We found it at Breeland in Rotterdam. THIS CAR If you’re looking for a second-hand car and want
