Land Rover

The Range Rover Sport has the highest crime rate for Land Rover/Range Rover models, followed by the Discovery on which it’s based. Most of the crime cases relating to them are 'theft from,' and this is possibly attributable to vulnerable and fairly valuable spare wheels mounted under the rear of the car, which are easy to steal and easy to sell on. 

The Evoque’s low crime rate shouldn’t be read into too deeply – our data covers the period during which it was newly introduced, so there were very few around – though it is a new car and so should be fairly well protected. The numerous Defender models - 110, 90, etc. - have been combined into the category of plain 'Defender' to give a clearer picture.
