Range Rover Evoque Cabrio coming within three years

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 25, 2011

Range Rover is following up on the success of the new Evoque with a series of new small cars. Insiders said that the approval is likely to be given to a radical Evoque cabrio and an even smaller Range Rover that was developed to rival the Mini Countryman and the upcoming Audi Q1.

However, the Evoque open-top is expected to be the first to arrive, probably in the next three years. It will be based on the three-door Coupe model and instead of a folding metal hood, it will feature a fabric roof.

According to design sources, it's easy to put a folding roof into the rear of the Range Rover. In addition, the design allows for the removal of the roof. Its top engineers said that there likely won’t be considerable revisions to stiffen the body to compensate.

An Evoque soft-top will be a major rival to the Audi TT Roadster and BMW 3-series Cabrio. It’s still several years to go before the smaller model arrives but insiders say that it will be offered with both three and five doors and it will be a full five-seater.

It will be offered with engines that have a smaller capacity than the Evoque, such as 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines. It may also be a showcase for other technologies such as hybrid and full electric. The new baby Range Rover has to be built on an all-new platform that other Land Rovers or Tata models could use. A source said that a baby Range Rover won’t be expensive.
