Not quite, front crash structure is the same yes, you could even call it a jumped up focus as thats where its routes where,
Maybe one or two of the rear supsension links, The hardpoints are similar yes, but the parts arnt,
Couple of examples.
Freelander was all iron knuckles (hub) and steel lower front arm,
Evoque is Ally knuckle and ally lower arm,
I worked on the suspension on that, Disco Sport and e-pace. so quite familiar with that platform, :thumbs:

i still see them as a jumped up freelander, they share the same chassis and few suspension components aswell

Thanks for all the info and tips. I think I've managed to stall her a little longer at least!

Tail gate gapping is the biggest issue, as the cars build wide,

wouldnt touch any evoque with a barge pole, all the techs complain about how crap they are put together and the electrical systems are a pain
we have done a ton of tailgates on the auto close ones not being aligned properly or the electric struts being too strong and bending hinges then damaging the tailgate itself
land rover service centres are a joke, having to use them to keep your warranty intact when most are just full of basic mechanics wearing land rover badges and have no clue but charge the earth
if you absolutely have to buy one make sure its got a very good warranty amount left (and one without electric close tailgate)....or just get an Audi Q3

Thanks Ian. There are some 5 yr old ones at 100k+ still fetching £15-16k! I'm still trying to put her off, but not sure if it's working!

The depreciation on these wasn't bad when they first came out because there was a bit of a waiting list. Probably a bit worse now but 16 plate will have done 30% or so so its definitely losing less now than when it was new.

Long as itís only used for city driving and mainly as a status symbol it will be fine

Depreciation would be my only real concern

My wife REALLY wants a 16 plate Evoque, as it looks pretty and is really comfy apparently. She's looking to buy as opposed to hiring.
