Despite the global demand for SUVs has increased substantially over the recent years, it seems that no one wants a sleek but impractical two-door SUV. Land Rover has decided to cut the three-door Range Rover Evoque from its line up because of this according to AutoCar UK.
Since the global debut of the Evoque nameplate in 2011, the compact crossover is available in three body styles – five-door, three-door and convertible. Since the introduction of the topless Evoque, the three-door has been the slowest-selling body style and sources have touted that the five-door accounts for almost 95 per cent of sales.
A Land Rover spokesman said: “From the 2019 model year, Land Rover has rationalised its Range Rover Evoque body style offering to concentrate on the five-door model and convertible, which account for the majority of sales.”
When the Evoque first landed onto Malaysian shores in 2011, Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia (JLR) offered both the three-door and five-door guise but have since dropped the less practical twin in the 2016 revision.
