Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible cost & verdict
If you’re looking to buy outright, the Evoque Convertible isn’t cheap and you’re unlikely to get much of a discount. High demand means that resale values are very strong, and PCP or leasing costs are also surprisingly good. Unfortunately, the car’s weight means it won’t be as economical as a 4 Series or C-Class Convertible and will cost more to tax as well. That’s especially true for company car users who will have to pay thousands more to run the Evoque.
Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible quality & reliability
The interior is nicely finished and comes with leather seats and plenty of leather-effect material covering the dash and doors, even in the cheapest model. Overall, it’s an attractive place to sit and feels well screwed together for the most part. The Evoque comes with a three-year unlimited mileage warranty as standard that can be extended for a fee. That may not be the worst idea; Land Rover as a brand performed poorly in our last reliability survey.
Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible safety & security
The Evoque Convertible hasn’t been crash tested yet, but it gets seven airbags including a driver’s knee airbag, front and rear parking sensors and a rear view camera, hill start assist, lane departure warning and Isofix anchor points in the rear seats. Top-spec cars also get lane assist and blind-spot warning (optional on the cheaper model). An alarm and immobiliser are standard, but no soft-top car is going to be as secure as the folding metal roofs fitted to some rivals.
