The Range Rover Evoque R-Dynamic’s standard front and rear disc brakes are vented to help dissipate heat for shorter stops with less fading. The rear discs on the NX Series are solid, not vented.

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Range Rover Evoque has larger standard tires than the NX Series (235/60R18 vs. 225/65R17). The Range Rover Evoque’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the NX Series (245/45R21 vs. 235/55R18).

The Range Rover Evoque’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 60 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the NX Series’ standard 65 series tires. The Range Rover Evoque’s optional tires have a lower 45 series profile than the NX Series F Sport’s 55 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover Evoque has standard 18-inch wheels. Smaller 17-inch wheels are standard on the NX Series. The Range Rover Evoque’s optional 21-inch wheels are larger than the 18-inch wheels optional on the NX Series.

Suspension and Handling

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover Evoque is 2 inches wider in the front and 2.2 inches wider in the rear than the average track on the NX Series.

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover Evoque has a 1.6 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the NX 300h (8.3 vs. 6.7 inches), allowing the Range Rover Evoque to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The Range Rover Evoque’s minimum ground clearance is 1.4 inches higher than on the NX 300 (8.3 vs. 6.9 inches).


The Range Rover Evoque is 10.6 inches shorter than the NX Series, making the Range Rover Evoque easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Passenger Space

The Range Rover Evoque has 1.5 inches more front headroom, .3 inches more rear headroom and .1 inches more rear shoulder room than the NX Series.

Cargo Capacity

The Range Rover Evoque has a much larger cargo volume than the NX Series with its rear seat up (21.5 vs. 17.7 cubic feet).

A low lift-over cargo hatch design makes loading and unloading the Range Rover Evoque easier. The Range Rover Evoque’s cargo hatch lift-over height is 28.7 inches, while the NX Series’ liftover is 31.2 inches.


The Range Rover Evoque’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the NX Series’ (3968 vs. 0 pounds).


Unlike the driver-only memory system optional in the NX Series, the Range Rover Evoque offers an optional driver and passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The Range Rover Evoque offers an optional heads-up display that projects speed and navigation instruction readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The NX Series doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

The Range Rover Evoque’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The NX Series’ standard manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the Range Rover Evoque to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The NX Series doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Range Rover Evoque offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The NX Series doesn’t offer headlight washers.

Both the Range Rover Evoque and the NX Series offer optional heated front seats. The Range Rover Evoque also offers optional heated rear seats to keep those passengers extremely comfortable in the winter. Heated rear seats aren’t available in the NX Series.

The Range Rover Evoque’s optional Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The NX Series doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
