Has Range Rover hit peak niche with the Evoque Convertible? Al Suttie finds out


1 - Land Rovers of old could be turned into open-tops by removing the roof. The Evoque is somewhat more sophisticated.

2 - The folding fabric roof drops down quickly and neatly to turn the Evoque into a car that's unique in the UK market.

3 - That unique-ness is the key to this car's appeal. If you like cabrios, the Evoque stands head and shoulders above all others.


4 - Not just the height separates the Range Rover from rivals, but the feeling of ease and, even adventure.

5 - The 2.0-litre diesel in our test car was impressively hushed and the Convertible drives well, albeit with some shimmy from the lack of a fixed roof.

6 - From the driver's seat, it's all very normal Evoque fare, which is classy, comfortable and generously equipped in this expensive off-shoot model.

7 - Things are a bit more cramped in the back, but no more so than most other four-seat cabrios.


8 - The front seats can be a faff to slide forward to access the rear bench, but it's a small quibble.

9 - Keen shoppers will find the boot is small due to the folding roof and the opening is more of a letter box.

10 - None of this detracts from the Evoque Convertible's appeal. Is it too niche? No, just quite exclusive.
