The first major international award for the new Range Rover Evoque is a good one. The compact SUV achieved ‘Car Design of the Year’ award in 201 Car Design News awards.
The Evoque beats the gorgeous Alfa Romeo Giulietta and the magnificent Audi A7 to win the award. That is no surprise frankly, because Range Rover Evoque is just such a fantastic looking car. You see it, you want it! There is no other car around that looks anything like it.
It looks just right from every angle in its both three and five-door variants, and it’s not just the aesthetics either. That great design is also very well engineered for functionality and practicality. That we think is the main reason they picked it over the purely artistic Alfa Romeo. This sure is the start for the Evoque and it will snatching many more awards and loads more sales.
Car Design of the Year Award represents the opinions of automotive designers, including a number of leading industry Design Directors who sit on the judging panel.
The Award was presented to Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director:
“I am delighted to accept this prestigious award on behalf of the Land Rover Design team. This is a particularly special accolade as it represents recognition from peers in the industry,” said McGovern.
