2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Coupe

Evoking A New Sense Of Style In The CUV Market We see the form versus function fight played out on a daily basis in the automotive realm.

    If you thought the Kawei K1 pickup that we featured previously was a pretty blatant example of a Chinese automaker ripping off another company's design, you haven't seen anything yet.
