The androgynous Land Rover Evoque puts battle of the sexes to rest

The Land Rover Evoque has managed to achieve a feat that very few vehicles have after the introduction of the new generation MINI at the turn of the 21st century. Until the new generation MINI was introduced in the late 2000’s/ early 2001, there had been no vehicle that combined the masculine qualities of performance and ergonomics with the feminine assets of functionality and aesthetic appeal; but the Land Rover Evoque embodies the marriage between these opposites.

A luxury compact SUV, its immediate charm is the undeniable crossover appeal, for at first glance one cannot readily discern whether it is better suited for women or men. And that’s not where the balancing of opposites ends. Designed to attract the faithful urbanite, its off-road capabilities make it the ideal companion for a rugged drive in less civilized roads. And with the option of a turbo charged engine, speedsters and speed-sensible individuals alike can enjoy the performance options on offer. Not to mention the luxurious features which surprisingly still provide the functionality one would expect in any vehicle worth its price tag.

With aesthetic appeal that cuts across gender specific sensibilities, engine performance for a diverse audience and features that everyone will find useful; the Land Rover Evoque does this merging of seeming opposites in the most stylish of ways.
