Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus NX 300h than in the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lexus NX 300h offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque as you will with the Lexus NX 300h, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus NX 300h. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque and the Lexus NX 300h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a little wider than the Lexus NX 300h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus NX 300h.

Handling
The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has the same turning radius as the Lexus NX 300h, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is clearly the choice over the Lexus NX 300h for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque greatly out-muscles the Lexus NX 300h.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Lexus NX 300h.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque and the Lexus NX 300h. The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has less cargo space than the Lexus NX 300h, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus NX 300h.
