Range Rover Evoque Tests Going Topless
The Range Rover Evoque Convertible is almost certainly headed for production based on new spy photos of the topless crossover out testing.
Land Rover is testing a drop-top version of the Evoque which appears to be changed up compared to the concept version we saw at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The rear deck lid and fenders have been revised and a new squared-off lip spoiler has been added that is less elegant than the original version. Presumably these changes were made to keep production costs down.
Along with the spy photos, an image trademarked by Land Rover was also uncovered, showing off the entire Evoque lineup which includes the drop-top model. That picture is a spoof on the famous Abbey Road album cover from the Beatles and even features one car without tires to mimic a shoeless Paul McCartney.
The addition of a convertible will keep the Evoque lineup from going stale, as major changes haven’t come to crossover in some time. A production version is almost surely on its way and we may be seeing it at the upcoming 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
