The Range Rover Evoque 2.2 TD4 Pure has beaten off stiff competition to take top honours in the 4x4 category of Parker's Cost of Motoring New Car Awards 2012. The Parker's Cost of Motoring New Car Awards are based on figures collated by Parkers Cost of Motoring tool, which calculates the true hidden costs associated with owning and running a new car, the calculation includes fuel consumption, depreciation, servicing and road tax.
Commenting on the award, Land Rover’s UK Marketing Director, Laura Schwab said, 'We know our customers take the cost of ownership into serious consideration when deciding on their new car. This award is further endorsement of the Evoque's balance of luxury, on road dynamics, off road capability and class leading residual values which is a large contributing factor to the car's success.'
Kieren Puffett, Editor of Parker's added, 'The Range Rover Evoque has striking looks that make it stand out of the crowd, and now it can claim to be the best value 4x4 too. With the Evoque claiming three of the price brackets in the 4x4 category for being top for value, it was an incredibly easy decision to award the Range Rover Evoque 2.2 TD4 Pure as winner of the Parker's Cost of Motoring New Car Awards 2012 in the 4x4 Category. Key to its strong performance was not only its strong residuals so it really holds on to its value, but also the frugal nature of the 2.2-litre diesel and its low running costs.'
