Canadians pay close to 10K more for 2013 Range Rover Evoque
If you live in Canada and want to purchase a 2013 Range Rover Evoque, you will be paying a lot more for the new crossover than your U.S. neighbors. Land Rover has released pricing on the Canadian models and they are considerably higher than U.S. model pricing. We knew from a recent trip to Calgary this summer that prices in Canada are much higher than here in the U.S., but the extra that our neighbors to the north will pay for the new 2013 Evoque seems exorbitant.
For the 2013 Range Rover Evoque five-door Pure, which is the new entry model, Canadians will pay $6,142 more than the same U.S. model. If Canadian buyers choose the top-of-the-range Dynamic Premium Coupe, they will pay an extra $9,570 more than the same vehicle here the U.S. That’s a 13 percent increase in price for the base model Pure and close to an 18 percent increase for the top model.
When you figure in the price for a liter of gasoline, the cost to own a new Evoque in Canada goes up even more. Canadians pay $1.30/liter for gasoline where we pay the equivalent of $0.97/liter here in the U.S. All 2013 Evoque models come equipped with a 240 horsepower turbocharged, direct injected 2-liter 4-cylinder engine and they get good fuel mileage. The Evoque is rated 28 mpg EPA highway and 20 mpg EPA city fuel economy (23 combined). For our Canadian friends that figures highway 7.1 L/100km, city 10.6L/100km and combined 9.0 L/100km4.
