TopGear names Range Rover Evoque as the Car of the Year

December 2, 2011 12:00 AM

It might be better known as a TV show, but TopGear publishes a magazine as well, and the publication recently revealed that it chose the Range Rover Evoque as its Car of the Year, reports Autoblog.

Show host Jeremy Clarkson and his cohorts had a number of high-end cars to choose from, as the show tests just about every model that hits the market in a given year. At the end of the day, however, the British show opted to go with a British manufacturer, giving the nod to the Evoque. The critics praised the car's excellent fuel economy compared to similar models, along with its power and styling.

"Judging the TopGear Magazine cars of the year takes a lot of time, coffee and shouting," said editor-in-chief Charlie Turner. "But, strangely, when it came to the choosing the overall winner, the yelling softened to agreement. Universal approval from the most opinionated minds in the industry is almost unheard of. Which gives you some idea of just how good the Range Rover Evoque, TopGear's 2011 Car of the Year, really is."

Whether you've got an expensive luxury SUV or a decade-old used car, its equally important to keep it running in top condition through routine auto maintenance, such as oil changes and brake service.
