2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible — Los Angeles
Yes, you read that correctly — a Range Rover convertible. Land Rover introduced this unique vehicle at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, and reaction seems to be mostly positive. The Evoque’s sleek profile remains intact when the top is up, and in 18 seconds the roof stows flush with the rear bodywork. The top can be raised at speeds up to 30 mph. The Z-fold fabric top includes a layer of acoustic insulation to create an interior environment on par with the hatchback. As one might expect, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible retains the same impressive all-terrain capability as the Evoque hardtop, with a permanent all-wheel-drive system, a 240-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, a 9-speed automatic transmission and Land Rover’s patented Terrain Response system that can automatically set the vehicle up to handle a variety of terrain. The Range Rover Evoque Convertible should go on sale next summer.
