All Hail the New Range Rover Evoque, God of Road

We drive to the Amanzoe not via road but overland, along a rocky goat path that twists across hills and through streams. The Evoque raises and lowers itself as needed. Obstacles that would stop an ordinary car — or, for that matter, a luxury limousine — are non-issues. Inside, eucalyptus-based-textile trim mirrors the large slabs of marble used at Amanzoe; leather feels a bit old-fashioned in a car as sleek as this. Cameras mounted around the Evoque let the driver see “through” the bodywork to negotiate around jagged rocks. Compared to the old Evoque, the new one is significantly more spacious for rear-seat passengers, addressing what was its only real shortcoming. A new mild-hybrid (MHEV) system gives the frugal four-cylinder engine an electric boost, outputting nearly 300 hp.

We arrive at our Greek palace early, with plenty of time to devote to noble pursuits by the pool.
