The monumental task we are refereeing to would be to convince the world that we need luxury convertible SUV’s. We can’t for the life of us understand why you would want to take a soft roader SUV like the Murano, make it solely a two door model, add a folding canvas roof and market it as luxury SUV with a premium price tag.
It turns out that the rumors brought to light and hugely publicized thanks to it being discussed during the “news” segment on this season of Top Gear are true. Range Rover showed off their latest concept SUV that like the Murano CrossCabriolet flies in the face of common sense, at this year’s Geneva Auto Show. Yes I know what you’re thinking why? Why does the world need a convertible version of the 2 door Range rover Evoque? We have no idea who would want to be caught dead in this type of vehicle as everyone knows that it rains almost every day in North Vancouver.
The marketing geniuses over at Range Rover are branding this as the world first premium compact convertible SVU which is strange as Nissan tried the same marketing approach. We are expecting the soft-top to share the same under the skin gear as the hardtop version and can’t wait to be able to hear the clatter of the diesel engines as it revs up to its 5000RPM redline. Not to mention the sweet smell of its smoky exhaust when you put the hammer down. There truly is nothing more attractive then showing up at the mall with your face blackened like a coal miner.
Thankfully no pricing structure has been released as this convertible SUV is still living under the guise of being only a concept truck. We are quite confident based off of the description being used for this truck that it will be priced much higher than even the top of the line Evoque which it’s self is already over inflated. The positive spin that we can add to this would have to be that we may never have to see on driving around, however if we do I hope for the drivers sake they have the roof up because then they may not see me pointing and Laughing as they cruise on by.
