After a long series of teasers, Land Rover has finally unveiled its first ever completely convertible SUV. It is the new and already teased Land Rover Evoque Convertible, a car that is set to make its public debut during this month Los Angeles Motor Show.

As the fifth member of the Range Rover family, and the first ever convertible, has an exterior design a sophisticated fabric roof. Its Z-fold mechanism lays flush with the rear bodywork  and the fabric roof is the longest and widest currently fitted to any vehicle on sale today.

The fully-automated roof stows in 18 seconds, and can be raised in 21 seconds, at speeds up to 30mph. When closed it provides a layer of acoustic insulation ensuring interior comfort compared with five-door Evoque. In addition, the position of the roof doesn’t affect loadspace, with a limited 251-litre boot offering.

At the heart of the cabin is an all-new, high-resolution 10.2-inch touchscreen with Jaguar Land Rover’s next-generation infotainment system, InControl Touch Pro, which debuts in a Land Rover. InControl Touch Pro offers smartphone integration, door-to-door navigation, 3G connectivity and a premium sound system.

Safety hasn’t been overlooked with a Roll-Over Protection Device featuring deployable roll-over bars hidden in the rear bodywork. It deploys two aluminium bars within 90 milliseconds in the unlikely event of a roll-over situation to create a survival space for occupants.

Land Rover’s 240 hp Si4 petrol is aailable. Diesel power comes from Land Rover’s 2.0-litre Ingenium engines which provide highly efficient and refined performance with fuel economy up to 55 mpg (5.1 l/100km) and CO2 emissions as low as 149 g/km. 

Pricing in the UK will start from £47,500 based on a TD4 HSE Dynamic derivative. The new Range Rover Evoque Convertible will be produced at Land Rover’s Halewood plant in the UK, alongside the five door and Coupe bodystyles, and goes on sale across from Spring 2016 in more than 170 markets worldwide.
