With the Volvo, so you mean the XC60? The V60 is a compact wagon, while the XC60 is a related crossover. My wife LOVES the XC60. Reliability has been good for the 2013, but iffy for older ones. If you're driving only 6k/year, but the vehicle doesn't actually sit for extended periods of time, you will be less likely to have problems.
I haven't driven an Evoque with the new transmission, but agree that the older one I drove seemed lacking in refinement. Pretty, but expensive for what you get.
I've yet to drive the new Lincoln MKC, which is based on the Escape. It's all-new, so reliability is unknown. But you might like how it looks and drives (has some similarities to the Volvo and RR aesthetics), so probably worth considering.
Lexus also has a new compact crossover, the NX. I don't care for the styling at all, and have not yet driven it. But tastes differ, so I thought I'd throw it out there.
If you find the Touareg boring, you'd probably also find the Audi Q5 boring, though it's interior is a little nicer. And you didn't mention the Mercedes GLK, so I imagine you find its styling unappealing.
