2012 Range Rover Evoque Prestige Tan/Ivory/Espresso Interior

After the 2012 show seasons wraps, Land Rover will need an even larger display case to hold all the awards garnered by the Range Rover Evoque. So far, the all-new Evoque has collected over 100 awards from around the world. The two of the latest awards recognize the Evoque’s interior quality (WardsAuto World 10 Best Interiors) and the vehicle’s appeal to women (Women’s World Car of the Year).

Women’s World
Car of the Year

The first award we will talk about is the Women’s World Car of the Year, which chooses a trio of top vehicles in each of four categories. The four categories include family, luxury, sports, and economy. As you may have guessed, the Evoque took the top spot in the luxury category, followed by the Jaguar XJ and the Audi A6. The family car category was headed up by the BMW 3 Series, the Porsche 911 took the sports car category, and the Honda Civic — a perennial economy class favorite — was number one in the economy category.

Family Category:

1st – BMW 3 Series
2nd – Audi Q3
3rd – Ford Focus

Luxury Category:

1st – Range Rover Evoque
2nd – Jaguar XJ
3rd – Audi A6

Sports Category:

1st – Porsche 911
2nd – Jaguar XKR
3rd – Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class

Economy Category:

1st – Honda Civic
2nd – Volkswagen Up!
3rd – Ford Fiesta

Women’s World Car of the Year Supreme Winner

The 2012 Evoque was also named the Women’s World Car of the Year ‘supreme winner.’ 

But wait, there’s more. The Women’s World Car of the Year award also names three winners that are over and above the categories. This rarefied list included the BMW 3 Series and the Audi Q3,but the 2012 Range Rover Evoque topped them both by becoming what the Women’s World Car of the Year organization calls the ‘supreme winner.’ The Evoque will receive its trophy at the Paris Motor Show later this year.

WardsAuto World Best Interior

The second award takes note of the Evoque’s interior. The editors of WardsAuto World — a global automotive industry analysis publication — have rounded up the 10 best automotive interiors of 2012. WardsAuto World is better known for its “Ward’s 10 Best Engines” list, the model for which was used to choose the 10 best interiors. Up until 2011, the WardsAuto World interior competition had been known as the “Interior of the Year” award, but was recently changed so that there are no rankings within the top 10. Instead, the winners are listed here in alphabetical order:

  • Audi A7
  • Chevrolet Sonic
  • Chrysler 300 Luxury
  • Dodge Dart
  • Hyundai Accent
  • Hyundai Azera
  • Infiniti JX35
  • Mazda CX-5
  • Range Rover Evoque
  • Volkswagen Beetle

2012 Range Rover Evoque Interior ViewThis is what WardsAuto World had to say about the Range Rover Evoque’s interior:

“Its five-passenger versatility and no-nonsense premium appointments make the Evoque an ideal complement for a brand known for extreme off-roading. Being both luxurious and rugged would seem to be extremely difficult, but Land Rover makes it look easy with the new Range Rover Evoque.”

Evoque Trim Options

All trims of the Range Rover Evoque are available with a variety of interior color combinations. Naturally, the higher up the trim ladder you go the more options you have. The Pure trim has available Almond/Espresso, Ebony, and Cirrus/Lunar; the Prestige has Ebony, Cirrus/Lunar, Ivory/Espresso (pictured above right), Tan/Ivory/Espresso (pictured in the header image), and Ivory/Dark Cherry; and the Dynamic features Ebony with Cirrus contrast, Ebony with Pimento contrast, Lunar with Ivory contrast, and Lunar with Savannah contrast. You can see the color combinations on our Range Rover Evoque Interior Color Options post
