2012 Range Rover Evoque Side View

So, here we go again with the awards. Today, the all-new 2012 Range Rove Evoque was announced as an AUTOMOBILE Magazine 2012 All-Star.  While it didn’t take Automobile of the Year — that honor went to the Audi A7 — the Evoque was one of 10 vehicles to receive the All-Star nod.

“Easily the best work credited to designer Gerry McGovern’s studio, the Range Rover Evoque is first and foremost a design triumph. The company has demonstrated an uncanny ability to find increasingly small and sometimes tiny holes in the market and fill them with capable off-road vehicles whose style expertly complements their serious substance,” said AUTOMOBILE Magazine contributing writer and columnist Jamie Kitman.

About the All-Star Award

Singling out cars for a list like this is a much more difficult job than it may seem. We’ve been there.

The All-Star awards recognize 10 vehicles for “greatness wherever it might be,” without concern for body style, price, target audience, etc. Any car on sale in the U.S. in the current model year is eligible. But, before you write it off as an “Everybody Gets an Award” award, it’s not. The editors and contributors to AUTOMOBILE Magazine know their stuff and have selected vehicles that stand out in within their respective niches.

Singling out cars for a list like this is a much more difficult job than it may seem. We’ve been there. With over 300 models on sale, the practical differences between two, three, or even a dozen cars for the average car buyer can be razor-thin. Toss in some badge engineering and the field gets even more confusing. Overall, there’s not a single car here that doesn’t deserve the All-Star title.
