HonestJohn.co.uk compared the Evoque SD4 190 Automatic in Dynamic Lux trim with a Evoque Si4 240 automatic in the same trim and found £500 savings on the list price, along with annual savings of £351.

Diesels traditionally command a premium over petrol engined cars, but the four-wheel drive Range Rover Evoque is one of the exceptions to this rule, with the petrol model costing £45,660 compared to the diesel, which is priced at £45,160.
