The Range Rover Evoque – with its striking lines, muscular shoulder and tapered roof – has become synonymous with style and contemporary city life.
Now the New Range Rover Evoque Convertible, the world’s first premium compact convertible SUV, is going even further by setting new standards in design, capability and driving comfort.
With such a stunning roofline, it seems a shame to take the Evoque into convertible territory, but at least you’ll still be able to admire the original lines when the lightweight fabric roof - which drops in just 18 seconds at speeds of up to 50km/h - is up.
That’s an impressive bit of Z-folding, particularly on the move, it is the longest and widest fabric roof fitted to any production vehicle currently on sale. Perhaps that’s why it takes three seconds longer to raise than it does to lower.
Billed as the world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible, the drop-top inevitably involves some packaging compromises, including two rear seats instead of three. Front seats incorporate the latest technologies such as Climate Control options to ensure a truly relaxed and comfortable ride. The interior’s clean, architectural lines are complemented by the premium materials featured throughout, with the upgrade option of Oxford leather also available.
Filling up the centre dashboard, a 10.3-inch touchscreen shows off Land Rover's latest version of its InControl infotainment system. The home screen shows the familiar colourful quadrant menu as on previous Land Rovers, with audio, phone, climate control and navigation buttons. Swipe to the side, and there’s more apps, including an off-road info screen and even a full web browser.
State-of-the-art technologies including Terrain Response and optional All-Terrain Progress Control ensure the Evoque Convertible feels sure-footed no matter what the terrain or weather conditions. These are complemented by the optional Wade Sensing feature, which uses sensors to provide real-time information on water depth.
A Roll-Over Protection Device will protect the Evoque’s four occupants should it tip over and slide backwards down a sand dune.
Optional adaptive full LED headlamps complement the vehicle's design cues by combining a distinctive look with enhanced light output.
The entry-level SE Dynamic also comes standard with 17- inch alloy wheels and powered leather front seats, while additional features for the high-spec HSE Dynamic include head-up display, solar windscreen, fog lights, auto high-beam,18- inch alloy wheels, configurable ambient interior lighting, illuminated tread plates and heated and cooled front seats with 12-way power adjustment.
Both SE Dynamic and HSE Dynamic model grades are available with the option of turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol or diesel engines matched exclusively to a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
