I think it’s neat that they went with the white roof on that first official picture of the 5-door Range Rover Evoque.  The “Dynamic Theme” does offer:

Contrasting roof and spoiler color are available as a personalization option.

In the UK Press Release, it’s listed as a “no-cost option”, but “no-cost” is missing from the US Press Release.

We can actually see a black roofed version  of the Coupe in these two pics:

But getting back to the 5-door, after passing a new Mini on the road yesterday, I realized that Mini has used the same color scheme forever:

So I ask, is this a British design thing?
