You can usually anticipate an offering from a car manufacturer but It’s safe to say no one anticipated the British Land Rover to make a convertible version of their Range Rover Evoque model although many spy shots were revealed over the past couple of months, certainly a good looking machine in standard form but even better in convertible mode.
I guess we can call it a CrossCabriolet sort of thing, the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible doesn’t fail to deliver with solid looks and a perfect profile all of which can be seen live during the official reveal at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Land Rover is planing to charge customers just $4,000 for the convertible model over the standard $51,470 including the $995 destination charge which isn’t that much comparing to what others charge for a drop top version of their model. The roof installed will be an automated fabric unit which folds flush with the rear bodywork in just under 20 seconds with the addition of frame-less doors to ensure the elegant edgy look remains intact.
What powers the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible? The same 2.0-liter-four-cylinder engine that produces 240 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque delivering power through a nine-speed Automatic transmission equipped with AWD. 0-60 mph takes 7.8 seconds being that the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible weighs 4,268 lbs thanks to the extra equipment added to support the convertible.
