Land Rover has created …something interesting. It’s called the Range Rover Evoque Convertible. It’s a drop-top version of Land Rover’s compact SUV, and it comes bearing 2.0-liter turbocharged power under its hood. It also has Terrain Response, a halfway decent wading depth for a mall crawler, and a few other bits and bobs that show its very much still a Range Rover.
Still… it’s an odd duck. No one praised Nissan when it built the Murano Cross Cabriolet. The Jeep Wrangler is pretty much the main contender when it comes to the idea of pairing top-down motoring with off-road adventure.
So who exactly is the Range Rover Evoque Convertible for? Let’s try to find out…
[Disclaimer: Land Rover tossed us the key fob to the Evoque Convertible and included a tank of fuel. We used that tank trying to figure out who would buy this thing.]

A Rover branded successor to their last 2 litre 2 door convertible, and bonus, the same colour!
The Rover 2000 P6 factory prototype.
Graber in Switzerland made at least one as well.
Just about true, as the last Series Land Rover to be available with an engine that small was the Series II
i shall have to check it out. adding lightness should be every designers goal.
i am presently in a rented nissan armada(renamed yamato) while the blue prime mover is being equipped with somewhat less rear end crash damage-jeep owner destroyed their commander on the dodges rear end. cell phones ya know.
curious about the weight. got to be better than the hard top model. the nissan weighs in at a hair under 6000lbs dry. its the base model sv but plush. has a lot of goodies. this rental has 4K miles and 390HP 401lb/ft of torque at sea level. normally aspirated. down side is that it slurps fuel quite quickly.
this is likely just comparing apples and banannas…OOOOOoooooo……
