On the back of the 2016 Range Rover Evoque Convertible’s online debut, the British marque has just released the car’s first official trailer.
The video draws attention to the versatility of the car with a focus on its all-weather performance as well as its suitability for coastal cruising. Appropriately, we also get a glimpse of how capable the new Evoque Convertible is off-road, which is of course a necessary key trait of all Range Rover models.
At launch, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible will be offered with two engines across Europe. The entry-level model comes fitted with the Ingenium 2.0-litre TD4 diesel engine delivering 178 hp and most importantly, returning 5.1-litres per 100 km and just 149 g/km of CO2 emissions. Additionally, a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine is offered in Europe, and exclusively in North America, with 240 hp on tap and mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission driving all four wheels.
As for the folding roof itself, it is a fabric unit that can be retracted in 18 seconds and raised in 21 seconds at up to 30 km/h. Interestingly, Range Rover claims that the Evoque Convertible is just as quite as the five-door Evoque when the roof is in place.
