Evoque drop-top finally unveiled

Eagerly anticipated convertible version of the popular SUV to debut in the spring of 2016

The Range Rover Evoque Convertible has finally been unveiled and Land Rover is determined to ensure it is more than just a fad. Mooted as a concept at the Geneva Motor Show 2012, the drop-top Evoque was given the green light for production earlier this year. The first incarnations will arrive in the UK next year with prices starting at £47,950 and is available in two trims, either HSE Dynamic or for £4,000 extra HSE Dynamic Lux.

For what it claims to be the world’s first truly luxurious convertible SUV, Land Rover has fitted the model with a soft rather than hard-top. The fully-automated fabric roof folds flat in just eighteen seconds and once down does not impinge on the boot size, which is good for 251 litres or plenty of shopping. To add stability the suspension, anti-roll bars and power steering have been adjusted to cope with the necessary added weight.

You can expect most examples on British shores to be powered by diesel engines delivering 178bhp, but the added weight of hidden roll bars and the roof mechanism means 0-62mph will take 10.3 seconds. It boasts the same off-road credentials as its hard-top siblings with all the bespoke terrain systems included. It is inside the cabin where the convertible will be differ though as it comes with a new infotainment console offering seamless smartphone integration and 3G internet connectivity on a larger 10.2 inch touchscreen.

With no true rival in the market the Range Rover Evoque Convertible should clean up and its potential success could lead to other luxury car makers following suit.
