Range Rover Evoque skirts past Mercedes-Benz SUV

Companies mentioned in this article: Land Rover of San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Land Rover vehicles have a brutally-earned reputation for being some of the most capable off-road vehicles that have ever rolled along on four wheels. Again, and again the company has shown it knows how to build vehicles that will conquer the harshest environments on the planet with little effort. However, it should also be well known that making something look easy and a task actually being easy are two wildly different concepts. As proud as everyone involved with Land Rover vehicles is of this fact, they also understand people are more likely to make more trips to the grocery store than they are across the Empty Quarter in Saudi Arabia. This is where a vehicle like the 2014 Range Rover Evoque comes into play.

The 2014 Range Rover Evoque is a compact crossover SUV that is perfect for those who want to make a statement of luxury and performance, but also must manage the reality of living in a tightly spaced urban environment. The trim dimensions of the Range Rover Evoque are perfect for city-dwellers that have the need for a little extra capability but largely spend much of their time in the concrete jungle. Inevitably, there are going to be competitors of this innovative vehicle to muddy the waters for potential Land Rover of San Antonio customers. Comparing the 2014 Range Rover Evoque to the 2014 Mercedes-Benz ML350 shows the different routes each company has taken.

With little doubt to be had, Mercedes-Benz knows how to make a very luxurious vehicle. But when compared to the urban capabilities of the 2014 Evoque, the ML350 might be a little too much club. Starting the comparison might as well as begin with the power plants under the hood of each vehicle, the 2014 Range Rover Evoque is better suited for city driving with its turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that will still produce a very respectable 240 horsepower and still record 21 miles per gallon in the city. By contrast the ML350 has a larger and naturally-aspirated V-6 engine that will give owners 302 horsepower but only record 17 mpg in the city.

The 2014 Range Rover Evoque further demonstrates its city-driving chops by coming in either two- or four-door versions. Regardless of which version a customer would take home from Land Rover of San Antonio, both have more available cargo space than the Mercedes-Benz ML350.
