2017 Range Rover Evoque Convertible
It was only a matter of time before this happened, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible combines the practicality of an SUV with the fun of a convertible.
I’m hoping you can actually see me because the weather has taken a turn for the worse this afternoon. We’ve been up here in Courchevel, France for a couple of days now, putting the Evoque convertible through its paces in urban environments, on motorways and of course, up here in the snow.
Based on the three-door Evoque coupe – the convertible retains the same dimensions through to that rising waistline.
The roof is the widest and longest fitted to a production car. It opens in 18 seconds and closes in 21-seconds at speeds of up to around 50km an hour.
With no roof, it needs additional structural support including steel doorsills, bracing under the car and boron in the a-pillars. That all adds around 280kg.
Inside you’ve got all the trimmings of the standard Evoque, with the addition of the button to open the roof of course.
