Car News: Range Rover Evoque Convertible, Apparently Happening

Land Rover’s idea for a droptop Range
Rover Evoque has had a long gestation
period. First shown in Geneva in 2012 as a
concept that looked suspiciously road-
ready, the project was apparently given
the green-light in the summer of 2013,
though we haven’t heard anything about
it since. Now, Autocar seems to have
snapped a spy photo of a camo-clad
ragtop Evoque in testing. If you’ve been
dying for a cute-ute crossover that’ll mess
up your hair, your wait may be nearly
over.
The cabrio Evoque would be based on the
two-door variant, and it would likely be
introduced around the same time as a
mechanical midcycle refresh that would
bring Jaguar Land Rover’s new Ingenium
four-cylinder engine , according to
Autocar‘s reading of the tea leaves. The
British outlet predicts that the droptop
could hit dealerships in less than 12
months.
Perhaps conveniently, that means the
alleged Evoquiolet would never overlap
with its most logical competitor, the
Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. That
pavement-oriented, two-door, droptop
crossover ended with the 2014 model
year, and so far as we’re aware, it won’t
be repeated with the new-for-2015
Murano redesign.
