Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept

Now that the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet has graced the streets of America with its absurdity and ugliness, this Range Rover Evoque convertible somehow doesn’t seem so bad. Don’t get us wrong, we still don’t want one, and honestly, we hope this is one concept that never sees the light of production; but the more we look at it, the more we don’t hate it as much as we probably should.

“We believe that the Evoque lends itself beautifully to the idea of a convertible,” says Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern. Our apologies, sir, but we respectfully disagree.

So, it’s a three-door Evoque without a roof. That’s really all there is to say, though we’d absolutely need to see how it looks with the folding soft top in place. After all, the sleek roofline of the standard Evoque is one of our favorite design elements, and as much as we’d like to squint and make believe that the convertible still looks dashing with its cloth hat on, we’re skeptical.

Check out the droptop Evoque for yourself in our high-res image gallery live from the Geneva show floor, and be sure to let us know if you love it or hate it in the Comments.
