Range Rover Evoque Convertible Confirmed for Production

Lo and behold, Range Rover has confirmed it’s going to build an Evoque Convertible. The official debut will take place this week at the Geneva Motor Show. While we do know that the Range Rover Evoque Convertible will go on sale in 2016, we don't know much other than that. But this announcement does raise a lot of questions. RELATED: See Photos of the 2015 Range Rover Evoque Autobiography The first would have to be: why? Did Land Rover never see a Nissan Murano convertible? What mysterious market segment has it identified that is clamoring for a luxury, off-road crossover with a drop top? From the image released by Land Rover, it looks like the Evoque Convertible will be based on the coupe. The Nissan Murano Convertible was a coupe, too.

It will obviously be able to handle anything a hard-top Evoque can. But there’s a scene in the video when the crossover fords what looks like a deep puddle. Water splashes everywhere. Maybe it’s my cranky side, but that seems like it would be fun in an open-air Jeep Wranger — a $60,000 Evoque, not so much. And you know a fully loaded Evoque Convertible is probably going to cost at least sixty grand. RELATED: Range Rover is Pissed at This Chinese Evoque Knockoff
Now, one rumor we do like involves the development of a Range Rover Evoque Sport SVR. Give us something like that in convertible form and I’m ready to mortgage the wife and kids. _____________________________________ Click Here to Read the Original Article on BoldRide
