Range Rovers are the choice of royalty and celebrities because they combine uncompromising luxury with the ability to go anywhere under any conditions. Most Ranges are burly beasts that are better suited to the savannahs of Africa than tight city roads and parking garages. The Range Rover Evoque, however, is a petite SUV that gives up none of the marque’s battle-bred toughness nor any of its luxuries. The interior utilizes Kvadrat wool, eucalyptus-derived textiles and Dinamica suedecloth to create a cocoon of comfort that is enhanced by a touchscreen infotainment system and cabin air ionization technology. Powertrain options include a perky 296-hp engine coupled to a silky-smooth 9-speed ZF transmission or a “mild hybrid” 48-volt electric motor that harvests energy created during braking to ensure maximum range. If you want a vehicle that can maneuver tight parking garages and would be a great choice to carry your family to safety during a raging hurricane, this is the ride to get you through the apocalypse; LandRoverUSA.com
