Range Rover Evoque makes Porsche take notice

New impressive SUV now available at Land Rover of San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In terms of off the cuff similarities between Land Rover and Porsche, there would not seem to be much in the way of shared ground or market space. After all, Land Rover builds major off-road ready vehicles that have explored the British Empire from corner to corner and Porsche builds sporty little roadsters that were designed to take full advantage of the limitless potential of driving the Autobahn. However, Porsche has recently begun to dip their toes into the pool of luxury SUVs and the staff over at Land Rover have began to take notice. In order to help customers which luxury crossover SUV is going to be best for them, Land Rover of San Antonio has built a page directly comparing the Range Rover Evoque vs. the Porsche Cayenne.

With the design of the Range Rover Evoque, Land Rover designers played their strongest cards and built a high-end luxury SUV with all of the refinement and plush luxury appointments one would expect from a worldwide leader in the SUV world. In a similar fashion Porsche did something very similar with the new Cayenne as they were building a competitor for the Evoque, by taking a vehicle of similar size and placing a very powerful V-6 under the hood. The untrained observer would look at the turbocharged four-liter engine of the Range Rover Evoque vs. the Porsche Cayenne and its naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter, V-6 engine and call the contest decided. That would be selling the new Evoque very short.

It is true that the larger engine of the Porsche Cayenne does provide a bit more horsepower than the Range Rover Evoque. However, that is not the only thing that makes a vehicle better than another, attention must be paid to what it does with that advantage. Even with 60 more horsepower, the Range Rover Evoque has a quicker zero-to-60 mph time than the Porsche Cayenne, it also gets better fuel-economy and has a top speed nearly equal.

The entire Land Rover of San Antonio inventory can be viewed online at www.landroversanantonio.com. Their showroom is located at 13600 IH-10 West, San Antonio, TX, 78249. Anyone interested in learning about the Range Rove Evoque should call 210-561-4900 and schedule a test drive with a Land Rover of San Antonio sales professional today.
