Adult occupant

In the frontal test, the passenger compartment remained stable. There was insufficient pressure in the front passenger's airbag to prevent the head from making contact, through the fabric of the airbag, with the dashboard. Although dummy readings were good, the car was penalised for such 'bottoming out' of the airbag. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Range Rover showed that a similar level of protection would be provided for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. Protection of the driver's chest was rated as marginal. In the side barrier impact, the Evoque scored maximum points, with good protection of all body areas. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the abdomen was adequate and that of other body regions was good. The seat and head restraint provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled through the on-board computer, allowing a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, the system did not meet Euro NCAP's requirements regarding the clarity of information provided to the driver, and the system was not rewarded. Poor information is provided in the car regarding the danger of using a rearward facing restraint in the passenger seat without first disabling the airbag.

Pedestrian

Only the bumper scored maximum points, for the protection it provided to pedestrians' legs. The front edge of the bonnet scored no points, offering poor protection in all areas. The bonnet provided predominantly poor protection in the areas likely to be struck by a pedestrian's head.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment across the Evoque range. A seatbelt reminder is provided for the driver, passenger and rear seating positions. A speed limitation device is not available for this model.
