Evoque Convertible looks good in person

Evoque Convertible looks good in personAs longtime fans of the Range Rover Evoque, we were skeptical whether the design integrity of the vehicle could hold up if the distinctive sloping roofline was removed. To evaluate, we did two things: we had a look for ourselves and then discussed the matter with Land Rover’s Design Director and Chief Creative Officer, Gerry McGovern.

If you look very carefully, you’ll notice the open-top Evoque hiding behind Naomie Harris as the two participated in a Santa Monica beachside shoot conducted by fashion photographer Ben Watts. This was done to celebrate the model’s world premiere this week at the ongoing Los Angeles Auto Show ahead of a market launch scheduled for spring 2016.

Clearly engineers have absorbed the convertible mechanisms into storage space, not passenger space. The boot of the Evoque is quite limited in both aperture and capacity, though company reps did remind me that there’s a pass-through for “skis” and “2x4s.” That last one uttered without a trace of irony.

Land Rover is only showing one example of the Evoque Convertible at this week’s show — an exterior cast in a white patina, blacked-out wheels, and red and black Oxford leather interior, which gives it a racy Steve Mcqueen look. There’ll be plenty more colors and options by the time it reaches dealerships, of course, but that’s going to be a little while: the Convertible will be on the road in May.
