The 2016 Range Rover Evoque Convertible Has Arrived...In Time For Winter


Hairdressers rejoice!

This all started back in 2012 when Range Rover revealed the Evoque Cabrio concept. It’s taken some time but it’s finally reached production as a 2016 model. Set to make its official debut at the LA Auto Show next week, the 2016 Range Rover Evoque Convertible is described as, well, a convertible SUV for all seasons. Its fully-automated retractable roof, which goes down and up in 18 and 21 seconds, respectively, was designed to retain the shape of the fixed roof Evoque.

Whether that top is up or down, the Evoque Convertible has a cargo capacity of 9 cubic feet, and is controlled by a button in the center console and can be operated at speeds of up to 30 mph.

And because someone is bound to do something stupid at some point, Land Rover engineers fitted the SUV with a roll-over protection device which contains a deployable roll-over protection system hidden in the rear quarter panel. The RPD will automatically deploy two aluminum bars in only 90 milliseconds, effectively preventing occupants from getting crushed. And that’s good because the Evoque Convertible weighs 4,268 lbs. The US-spec model will come equipped with the familiar 2.0-liter turbocharged four banger rated at 240 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission is also standard and all-wheel-drive is optional.

The cabin can be decked out with optional features such as a 10.2-inch touchscreen with a new infotainment system and a 12-speaker 660-watt Meridian sound system. Android Auto and Apply CarPlay are both standard. Sales will begin in the middle of next year with a starting price of $50,475.
