● From Page 1

Rover can’t match 4x4 versions when it comes to all round performance, those have just been laid to rest. Putting the newcomer through its paces on a specially designed course created by the Land Rover Experience team in Austria demonstrated the capabilities of the eD4 to the full. It handled critical slopes on par with the more expensive Evoque 4x4 and at one point proved its incredible rigidity despite being the lightest of the Range Rover line-up. Balanced on an apex with one wheel high off the ground all four doors plus the tailgate could be opened and closed such is the sturdiness of the construction. On a skid pan the eD4 was not quite as grippy as its 4WD counterpart but with stability and traction controls kicking in it remained safe and controllable in treacherous conditions. Weighing in at 1.595 tonnes – not that much more than a MINI Countryman – the Evoque eD4 is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel developing 150PS. The same engine is also fitted in 4x4 versions giving the two wheel drive model similar performance, albeit marginally slower. Top speed is a claimed 112mph compared to 115 and 0 to 60 takes 10.6 seconds opposed to 10.3. The eD4 is available only with a six speed manual transmission and has a stop/start system, claimed to improve fuel economy by three per cent. Other fuel saving technology

Evoque finds eco groove

includes electronic power steering and brake energy regeneration which results in the Evoque eD4 having a theoretical range of 735 miles on a single tank – almost 100 miles more than the 4x4 with the same engine. While the two wheel drive car does not feature off-road devices such as hill descent control or Land Rover’s electronic Terrain Response system it does have a full suite of stability controls and hill start assist to help it cope in slippery conditions. Climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels and an electronic parking

brake are among the standard features on the entry level Pure model while the higher grade Prestige trim – priced from £36,380 – adds the likes of sat nav, parking cameras and automatic, ultra bright xenon headlights. On the base model the nav system is a £1,900 extra. Although the eD4 we sampled was a prototype, on the road in normal driving conditions it was difficult to detect any difference in the feel between the two and four wheel drive models. Acceleration is sharp when required and the ride, for an SUV, is

STAR PERFORMER: The new two-wheel drive Evoque eD4 is both the cheapest and most economical Range Rover on the market top of the league even though the eD4 cannot be configured with the Magnaride magnetic damping which delivers near sports saloon handling on other Evoques. The front wheel drive model is available in both coupe and five door body shapes and inside luxury abounds with leather upholstery and high grade trim. This is a new breed of Range Rover in every way imaginable and already the Evoque has become a soaraway success. With the attraction of added fuel economy the eD4 can only strengthen its hand.

Two wheel drive models account for more than 20 per cent of SUV sales in Europe with the likes of Nissan, Kia and VW having such models in their line ups but the up market standards of Range Rover make the Evoque compelling. It went on sale in September and already has attracted more than 36,000 orders worldwide – 13,000 of them in the UK. The Halewood factory where the Evoque is built alongside the Freelander 2 is working flat out to keep pace with demand and since its arrival the baby Range Rover has picked up more than 30 awards.

Ford Mondeo 1.6 ECOnetic Titanium X

The lean, green machine

ECO WARRIOR: The Ford Mondeo 1.6 ECOnetic model offers low emissions and the best fuel economy in the range

M

ONDEO man has enjoyed a privileged position in the automotive hierarchy over the past decade. He may not be the guy driving the car with the most prestigious badge, nor the one with the coolest looks. But when it comes to munching the miles or coping with the rigours of everyday family life there are few better places to be than in the evergreen Ford. As Tina Turner still reminds listeners of retro radio stations: It’s simply the best. These days fans of the blue oval have the chance to go more lean and green than ever, courtesy of what’s probably the best engine in the Mondeo range. It’s the 1.6-litre TDCi ECOnetic, a strong turbodiesel offering low emissions and the best fuel economy in the range. With a six-speed manual

transmission plus Stop/Start technology it can return an average 65.7 miles per gallon and belch out just 114g/km of CO2. And despite only boasting 115PS of punch it makes pretty remarkable fist of powering what is a large, heavy motor car. The relevant numbers are acceleration from 0-62 in 11.9 seconds and a top speed of 118mph. Upshot is that Ford now has eight Mondeo models emitting CO2 of below 115g/km – a boon for company car drivers, while annual road tax is £30.

What makes the Mondeo so compelling though is the way it ticks all the boxes, for both business and private drivers. Take the interior. It may be functional rather than luxurious but you could have designed it yourself. Instinctively reach for where you would expect the switches and dials to be placed, and that’s where they are. Need to carry a heap of luggage or samples and the huge boot swallows it all up. Need to fit three adults across the 60/40 split-fold back seat and there’s ample leg and shoulder room, while there are cupholders and cubbies dotted around the cabin.

Nissan Qashqai lands top used car honour THE Nissan Qashqai has been named Used Car of the Year by industry analysts CAP – the UK’s independent benchmark for used car pricing. It was chosen ahead of five other shortlisted models, the Citroen DS3, Vauxhall Zafira, Fiat 500, Ford Fiesta and Renault

Clio, to land the accolade for a second consecutive year. A judging panel comprising used car market and vehicle valuation experts at CAP awarded points for affordability and practicality of ownership, trusted reputation, retail popularity and innovative impact

on the motor industry. Unlike other car honours, the CAP award is designed to acknowledge all-round excellence from the perspective of everyone touched by the vehicle, including private owners, company car drivers, fleet operators and used car dealers.

Judging panel chairman Mark Bulmer summed up the Qashqai’s ongoing success as a used car, saying: “It is a great all-rounder that is perfect for its purpose, delivering on style as well as practicality for the motorist and providing a great retail proposition for dealers.”
