FOUR years since it launched and the Range Rover Evoque can finally make sense of its name, although it could have also been called the ‘Provoque’.
The Evoque Convertible might seem to be designed to evoke an opinion, or provoke an argument, given that soft-top off-roaders have tended to be the reserve of a Suzuki Vitara or Toyota RAV4, although the Jeep Wrangler dabbled in the concept.
