Earlier this year, Range Rover released the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, after teasing the idea with concepts for the last 4 years. Full size concepts were shown at the major automotive events such as the Geneva and the LA Motor Shows. In October 2014, full size wireframe models of the vehicles were found outside landmarks in London.
In March 2015, the vehicle was filmed in camouflage, driving the new Crossrail tunnels in London, an elaborate marketing & testing exercise to promote the upcoming vehicle. The 2016 release year was promoted to show that it was coming soon – exciting prospective future owners!
This got us curious about the project – the idea of a convertible SUV sounds like an interesting idea – something that hasn’t been done for a long time, and arcs back to the original Land Rovers that had canvas roofs.
At the end of Summer 2016, the Evoque convertible has now been released – Offering owners the unique combination of a premium Range Rover interior, combined with open top wind-in-the-hair motoring action.
The model retains its modern premium off-roader looks, and removes the roof in a clean and tasteful manner; the side profile still looks tough and very much “Range Rover”, whether the roof is up or down.
The reviews of the car are mixed so far – the car sacrifices some practicality for style; the boot is small, however where else do you get open air motoring in a vehicle capable of 45 degree ascents?
The most common customisation we apply to the Standard Evoque is a roof wrap – obvious this won’t work here (it’s fabric!), however there are customisation options available; such as Full Colour Change Wraps, Colour Coding, Light Tints or Vinyl Graphics.
