2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible is Right at Home in LA
20 Novembre 2015 - Autoblog
The first time I heard rumors about a droptop Nissan Murano, I thought it was a joke. Then I saw the production Murano CrossCabriolet at this very auto show in 2010, and the joke got all too real.
It's an interesting concept, the convertible crossover. And though it didn't quite work for Nissan (in fact, it was a total failure), perhaps there's a second shot at niche success with the smaller, better-looking Range Rover Evoque Convertible.
With the top up, the roof retains the shape of the Range Rover Evoque. Retracted, the three-door looks kind of chunky and cute, and trust me, it's not hard to imagine these things all over the streets of metropolitan Los Angeles, especially the wealthy neighborhoods. I say that because, as you can imagine, the Evoque Convertible isn't cheap, starting at $51,470. A friend of mine even spec'd one up to nearly $74,000. Woof.
Still, if any lifestyle car is going to pull off the whole CUV-convertible thing, it's the Evoque.
