The 718/5x is a fleece filter kit.
I think the "evotop" is marketingspeak.
In any event, the filter itself is the same, so long as it bears that part number. (The paper element type is the 718/4x.)
I've also used the Hengst equivalent, which is 0001802609HE. They appear to be constructed a bit better than the Mann, though appearances don't really mean all that much. I was just swayed by some things I read concerning their history and quality, and I figured for a buck and a half every 10K miles, it wasn't a big deal.
Hope that helps.
