2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque White Five-Door

Back in early August, we said that Merriam-Webster will have to add a new definition to the dictionary – Evoque(\i-ˈvōk\) a: to collect awards at an alarming pace. As it turns out, we were not too far off from the truth. Thursday, we touched on awards bestowed upon the Evoque by Motor Trend and Decisive Magazine. Today, there is yet another accolade to be added to the Evoque’s trophy shelf.

The 2012 Range Rover Evoque has been named the Ruedas ESPN Best SUV. An ESPN committee selected the nominations, but industry experts name the winners based on design, value, price, performance, fuel economy, and appeal among Hispanic shoppers.  The award was presented at the 41st Annual South Florida International Auto Show — is there such a thing as a new car auto show that isn’t international? — that runs through November 6th in Miami.

Winners are judge on design, value, price, performance, fuel economy, and appeal among Hispanic shoppers.
