Move over Murano CrossCab; Nissan has some new competition from Land Rover.
A few trends that shouldn't be: Girls in Ugg boots in the spring/summer, the Ohio State Men's basketball team losing to inferior Big Ten opposition, and automaker's making line after line of crossover cabriolets. The unseemly Nissan Murano CrossCab has been joined by a new edition of the Evoque from Land Rover, concisely called the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept. The official rendering of the Evoque Cabrio shows an Evoque Coupe-base in a right-hand-drive configuration.
A bland two-tone gray exterior with a similar gray interior intends to do more with less, while a set of 21-inch wheels gives the soft-top Cabrio a bit of personality. In all honesty though, it's not half-bad looking. "The Range Rover Evoque lends itself beautifully to the idea of a convertible. This study is not a traditional convertible design execution-instead we have worked with the balance of the Range Rover Evoque's lines to retain its distinctive shape and create something that is unique and, we believe, highly desirable," said Land Rover's design boss Gerry McGovern.
Land Rover is calling their Range Rover Evoque Cabriolet the world's first premium convertible SUV. It is set to debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show on March 6th.
