2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Pros: Head-turning, concept-vehicle styling; premium interior trimmings; still boasts impressive off-road capabilities; available convertible

Cons: Stiff pricing, especially considering the 4-cyl. powertrain; cramped back-seat area; impracticality of 2-door models

CG Says: The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque gains a new convertible bodystyle for 2017. The only other convertible SUV is the Jeep Wrangler. While the Wrangler has a manual top, Evoque’s power top can be lowered in 18 seconds. The 4-door wagon gets a new topline Autobiography trim with special leather interior and Meridian sound system. Also, there is a new InControl Touch Pro infotainment system. Evoque was created to expand the Range Rover brand’s market reach with a blend of more-affordable pricing, head-turning looks, city-friendly size, zippy performance, reasonable fuel economy, and Land Rover off-road cachet. It succeeds on all those fronts, but it is still too expensive compared to most of its similarly luxurious class rivals. Evoque appeals most to shoppers who place a premium on style and designer-label cachet over value and cargo functionality… and that goes double for the panache-over-practicality 2-door Coupe and Convertible models.
