During the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Land Rover had showcased a prototype version of the Range Rover Evoque Cabriolet, which at that time looked like a distant reality. But recent news speculates otherwise with the British manufacturer now believed to be planning to give the ‘go-ahead’ for the top down variant.
The Cabrio is likely to flaunt a fabric roof in a three-door body style. The SUV will also feature assistance features like surround cameras, park assist, terrain response and roll-over protection. The 21-inch alloy wheels from the prototype are also likely to be carried over to the production model.
The Range Rover Evoque has been one of the most successful models from the Land Rover stable and has played a key role in reviving the brand globally. Hence, an addition to Evoque family should most definitely be part of a well thought out strategy. A global launch or pricing strategies are not out yet but next year’s Paris Motor Show can likely expect the unveiling of this ‘aesthetically distinct’ variant of the otherwise appealing Evoque.
