On Monday Land Rover premiered the all-new Range Rover Evoque Convertible in West Hollywood, California, prior to the press preview at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Since Southern California will undoubtedly be one of the largest markets for the compact convertible SUV, it was the perfect location for the first U.S. showing following the vehicle’s global debut last week at University of the Arts’ famous Central Saint Martins building in Granary Square, Kings Cross, London.

The Range Rover Evoque Convertible is designed to retain the distinctive profile of the Evoque 5-door hatchback and coupe, with its rising beltline and sloping roofline, whether the fabric soft-top is up or down. The lightweight roof stows flush with the rear bodywork in 18 seconds and can be raised at speeds up to 30 mph in 21 seconds. The Z-fold fabric top includes a layer of acoustic insulation to create an interior environment on par with the hatchback.

True to the Land Rover heritage, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible retains the same all-terrain capability as the Evoque hatchback and coupe with a standard all-wheel-drive system, a 240-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, a 9-speed automatic transmission and Land Rover’s patented Terrain Response system of multiple driving modes.
