Test Drive heads to England to get up close and personal with the smallest and lightest Range Rover ever built: the 2012 Range Rover Evoque!

Our host, four-time Trans Am champion Tommy Kendall takes the striking and head-turning Range Rover Evoque from the English countryside to the streets of Liverpool, to Eastnor Castle, to LandRover’s own proving grounds at Gaydon. As Kendall puts the Range Rover Evoque through its paces – on road, off-road, through rivers and on the track – he finds out if this newest Range Rover is worthy of its iconic nameplate. Next Kendall heads from Land Rover’s incredibly hi-tech design center to their award-winning Halewood factory to learn about the inspiration and craftsmanship that goes into each and every Range Rover Evoque. Then, Kendall meets up with irreverent British automotive critic Chris Harris for a down and dirty test drive through English parkland. Finally, Kendall heads back to the USA for a scenic test drive through California’s wine country, and a touching tribute to legendary Indy car champion Dan Wheldon.

Everything you'd expect from a Range Rover.

Introducing the Range Rover Evoque. A Range Rover with a different spirit. Bold and sophisticated, with innovative technology that’s both intuitive and clever. Range Rover Evoque provides an engaging blend of dynamic and sporty handling. It is smaller, lighter – the most efficient and sustainable Range Rover…ever. Nothing else looks like it, feels like it, or drives like it. In fact, Range Rover Evoque is a quantum leap in the evolution of Range Rover design. Range Rover Evoque is available in three distinct models – Pure, Prestige and Dynamic – offering a tempting array of choices and technology.
