Range Rover Evoque Convertible revealed

Could the new Evoque Convertible be the first member of the car market's next big sub-niche? Well, if its sales performance is strong, some other premium compact SUV manufacturers will doubtless rush to build their own drop-top contenders.

Made from fabric, the Evoque's acoustically-insulated roof can be lowered in 18 seconds or raised in 21 seconds at speeds of up to 30 mph (48 km/h). In the event of a roll-over, twin aluminium protection bars deploy in just 90 milliseconds. Inside, there's space for four people and luggage capacity is 251 litres.

HSE Dynamic and HSE Dynamic Lux trim grades are being offered. They can be paired with a choice of 2.0 litre, four-cylinder Si4 petrol or Ingenium diesel engines that produce 236 bhp (176 kW / 240 PS) and 177 bhp (132 kW / 180 PS) respectively.

Both options come mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system with Terrain Response, All-Terrain Progress Control and Wade Sensing.

In the UK, on-the-road prices for the HSE Dynamic variants are £5,200 higher than those of the equivalent Evoque CoupĂ© models. Similarly, the Lux versions carry a £3,900 premium:

Evoque Convertible HSE Dynamic Diesel £47,500
Evoque Convertible HSE Dynamic Petrol £48,200
Evoque Convertible HSE Dynamic Lux Diesel £51,700
Evoque Convertible HSE Dynamic Lux Petrol £52,400

Deliveries are due to begin next spring.
