The Range Rover Evoque Convertible is something of an oddity, combining the lofty driving position and go anywhere ability of a 4x4 with the pose factor of a convertible. Although it doesn’t have any direct rivals, it should appeal to those looking at a Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet or a BMW 4 Series Convertible.
Under the bonnet, you get a choice of two turbocharged 2.0-litre engines, both of which only come with automatic gearboxes and four-wheel drive. While that allows the Evoque Convertible to go anywhere a regular Evoque can go, there is a penalty for this off-road ability. To ensure it remains rigid enough to cope with the toughest terrain, hundreds of kilos of chassis strengthening is needed.
Even so, the Evoque Convertible has plenty going for it, and it does beat the competition in a couple of key areas. Read on to find out what they are and to find out which version makes the most sense.
