What’s In Store for the New SUV

Land Rover confirmed the release of its first-ever convertible at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show, and the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque convertible is slated to go on sale this summer. This SUV convertible required quite a bit of redesigning and planning to make the concept work, including 441 pounds of underbody strengthening and the fitting of a complex electric soft top, which is notably larger than an average convertible.
The top unfolds within 18 seconds and can do so at speeds up to 30 mph. Additional safety measures had to be put in place, as well, given the roof removal. As such, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has twin aluminum roll bars behind the rear seats that deploy within 90 milliseconds in the event of a rollover. Prices start at $50,475 for the two-door cabriolet.

How It’s Different From the Standard Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

For one, the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque convertible weighs 615 pounds more than the standard 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. The convertible model has just two doors, while the regular version has three. The standard Land Rover Range Rover Evoque also boasts a maximum of 51.0 cubic feet for cargo, as compared to the convertible’s trunk, which measures 8.86 cubic feet. Otherwise, body changes between the two models are minimal apart from the removal of the roof for the convertible.
