The new compact 4x4 from Land Rover. Is it cool?

Clearly it's no match for a DB5 but in the context of small modern 4x4s and Qushqais (sp?) and the like, I'd say it was cool.

Victoria Beckham had influence in its design therefore it belongs on a Chav wall.

A range rover for hairdressers and footballers wives.
Wouldn't want to be found dead in one.

I liked the one i had on test, it was capable and fun to drive and it does look great, the interior is a lovely place to be. Its by no means perfect though and when it came down to practicalities we ordered an X3 instead, it might not be as pretty, but its a much better car.

Uncool

Fantastic looking thing and probably a very capable motor but it will never be as good or as cool as a proper Range Rover, which itself is uncool

I'd quite like one of each though

Would have been cool, but seeing as its already common as muck that disqualifies it. It's about as exclusive as a Fiesta, so may as well buy one of those and save ££££'s

I really don't know why, but it looks better as a cabriolet... I never thought I'd say that about a 4x4 from Land Rover... Will likely be great off-road but I agree the overall image has been tainted by the footballers and wags.

That's a stupid statement, I have a Range Rover dealership near where I live and still have only seen a couple of Evoques on the road round here, for all I know they were demonstrators as well.

I voted uncool. RRs are meant to be off road vehicles, not chav-mobiles The most off-roading these will do is a bit of kerb crawling as the pimps check on their "girls"

What is it? I mean I know what it is in terms of I've seen them in person but I mean why? It's not a RR is it? If we're honest it's not really. It's as much a RR as a Scirocco is a Coupe (that's just a squashed Golf). Uncool - not seriously uncool though as I see the market for it; you can't blame someone for creating a product purely to fill a gap in the market rather than because it SHOULD be done - it's what our capitalist economy is built on after all haha)

This is a real pet hate of mine, the corruption of 'coupe' to mean '3 door hatchback with slightly altered roofline'. To be honest, I'm even dubious about calling the Brera one.

Mind you, the term is becoming so watered down by marketing as to be almost meaningless now - witness the BMW 6-series "Gran Coupe", a four door saloon that's longer than a 7-series!
