We recently had the pleasure of catching up with some very special customers - Richard Weeks and Debra Harrisson. We were very excited to meet them as they are the first customers we’ve welcomed on site, who have bought one of our new Evoques.
The couple had made the long journey from Little Clacton (it’s a five and a half- hour drive to Liverpool) and were planning to make a weekend of it. Once they’d seen their brand spanking new car they were planning on taking in some of the sights in Liverpool (we shared a few hotspots!) and having a nice meal on the docks.
Before they got to that though we had to question them about their car history! This would be Richard’s second Evoque as he had previously bought one in 2015, he then smiled as he told us, “You’ll love the car I bought after that though…..a Mercedes GLC Coupe!” Erm…..will we? Debra already drove a Mercedes so it was a brand the family were familiar with but for Richard the devil was in the detail and it was the little things about the Mercedes that started to annoy him. He felt the occasional twitch and judder on roads he had previously glided down, the satnav wasn’t great and it reached the point where even the window wipers were getting on his nerves.
That’s the point he knew he needed to return to Range Rover. He visited his local dealership and was initially looking at the Velar but when he saw the new Evoque it was love at first sight, especially the interior which Richard was so impressed with and could see the distinct differences between that and our original Evoque. He can’t wait to drive it and we’ve assured him he won’t be disappointed!
Speed freak Richard, who loves his motorbikes, had not quite been brave enough to go off-roading himself in his old Evoque but tells us it’s a challenge he’s planning on taking on in his new car!
The family are also planning on saying ‘bonjour’ to France as they take their new car on a family holiday. We hope they have a fantastic time, and this is the start of many adventures with their new car!
