Land Rover has unveiled the world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible, Range Rover Evoque Convertible. Public debut is scheduled for the 2015 Los Angeles Motor Show this-month.
The Evoque Convertible combines the bold design and refinement of Evoque with comprehensive specification and a sophisticated folding roof to create a no compromise, all-season convertible. It adopts a soft-top power-operated roof that folds down completely in 18 seconds, and can be raised in 21 seconds, at speeds up to 30mph. The fabric roof is the longest and widest currently fitted to any vehicle on-sale today.
Design-wise, the Evoque Convertible is based on the facelifted 2016 Range Rover Evoque that debuted at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Featuring optional LED head-lamps with the new DRL design, revised bumpers and all-new LED tail-lamps. The convertible gets an exclusive moulded rear spoiler. The interior design too has been carried forward from the standard car.
Under the hood, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is powered by the 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engines that range between 180 PS or 150 PS, and the 2.0-litre Si4 petrol engine. It is paired to a ZF 9-speed automatic gearbox, and will be equipped with an AWD system with Terrain Response. The most fuel efficient variant delivers a mileage of 19.6 kmpl.
Range Rover Evoque Convertible will enter production at Land Rover’s Halewood facility in the UK alongside the 5-door and coupé body styles. The model goes on-sale from mid-2016 in more than 170 markets worldwide. India is most likely to be one of them.
