Likes; - Interior, Rear Seats feels more practical now thanks to the increased dimensions/space. - Ingenium Engine's 430 NM torque is ample sufficient & has great touring capabilities. - Suspensions's Ride Quality, Handling balance. - Looks are still its USP. Dislikes; - Base Model lacks flair and should have been avoided at launch as the top model (R-Dynamic) is only INR 3L more expensive than the base S. - Steering Wheel at high Speeds is not great (Remember it has no sport mode & hence the EPS doesn't stiffen up the way it should) - Alloy Wheel Design selected for the Indian spec. is very basic & lacks flair. - HUD missing (Even in the R-Dynamic variant), globally it is offered. VIDEO - http://youtu.be/k3EH1HUEWrw Other Miscellaneous Observations; - 99% of the 2nd Gen Evoque is all new & only the door hinges are carried over from previous/outgoing model. - New Gen Evoque is 14mm taller, 11mm longer & 6mm wider and than its predecessor. Overall a lot of design Inspiration has been taken from the RR Velar eg. Headlamps/TailLamps, Grille, Flush Door Handles etc. - Yet another 9 Speed ZF picking up from the 2nd gear from low speed/standstill, demonstrated in the video @ 9:18 onwards ... - Interior Dashboard design is much more sleek in this new generation of the Evoque. - Wheelbase has increased by 21mm, frees up some legroom. - Head room too has increased at the rear as the new gen is taller. Also the front seats are slimmer & scooped from behind which increases important knee room. - R-Dynamic trim is only INR 3L more expensive than the model tested (S Variant) & you get a much more fancy dashboard and also more features, the touch pro duo & an Meridian Sound System, Digital Instrument Cluster, Clear View Interior Mirror/Camera (Rear View is projected on the mirror to give better visibility) & on the exteriors you do get an R-Dynamic Kit as well. - Steering is well designed (But a bit too large) and gets new Touch buttons that change display everytime you touch them depending on the menu you're in, sort of being Contextual which is really cool. - Water Wading Depth is now 600 mm i.e. 100 mm more than the outgoing model. - The test car had the 2L Ingenium Diesel Engine, 180 hp & 430 nm of Torque. - There is NO Sport Mode, only ECO & Comfort. - The Evoque's suspension overall does a good job in having the stiffness for handling & suppleness for the ride quality. - Tyres were Good Year, Eagle F1 SUV All Season (Made in Germany), Size is 235/60 R18. - Approach Angle is 20.8 (An increase of three degrees compared to the previous generation) The breakover angle is 20.7 degrees (Reduced, may be due to more wheelbase) & Departure angle of 30.6 degrees (0.6 degree increase compared to the previous generation) Final Thoughts; Overall the wow factor which the 1st gen had, has been carried forward in the 2nd Generation thanks to all the Velar inspired design elements. For someone who loves the Velar & finds it too expensive or too big then this generation of the Evoque makes for a perfect buy
