ANCAP safety

Acceptable score:  32.49 out of 37

The Range Rover Evoque scored 12.39 out of 16 in the offset crash test. (ANCAP requires at least 12.5 for a 5-star rating). The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious chest injury was marginal for the driver. The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the pole test.

Frontal offset crash test

Body region scores out of 4 points each: Head/neck 3 pts, chest 2.25 pts, upper legs 4 pts, lower legs 3.14 pts. The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 51 mm and upwards 27 mm. The steering wheel hub moved 25mm forward and 1 mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 31 mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash the driver’s door could be opened with high manual effort. The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag but Euro NCAP found that it allowed the head to contact the dashboard and so a one point deduction was applied. There were no knee hazards.

Side impact crash test

Body region scores out of 4 points each: Head 4 pts, chest 4 pts, abdomen 4 pts, pelvis 4 pts. The side impact test simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. Experience shows that high vehicles like the Evoque can be expected to perform well in this test and it scored full marks. The vehicle was eligible for a pole impact test, since it had head-protecting side airbags. The vehicle earned the maximum two points in this test.

Pedestrian safety


Only the bumper scored maximum points, for the protection it provided to pedestrians' legs. The front edge of the bonnet scored no points, offering poor protection in all areas. The bonnet provided predominantly poor protection in the areas likely to be struck by a pedestrian's head.
