Here’s a different type of controversy — the fun kind, not the kind with massive cover-ups and looming recalls. Land Rover is making a convertible of the Evoque, its city-friendly SUV, and the company is going out of its way to tout the vehicle’s off-road capability. Some of you may wonder if this is a repeat of Nissan’s infamous Murano cross-cabriolet. Here’s our two cents. One, the Evoque is way more composed off-road than the cross-cabriolet. And two, let’s just all agree that it’ll never be as good, or as cool, as the mythically great Land Rover Defender 90 Convertible. Controversy over!
