Range Rover Evoque Convertible prototype spotted testing
Set to debut next month at the Los Angeles Auto Show, a still-disguised version of the new Range Rover Evoque Convertible is seen here undergoing final off-road evaluation on the grounds of Land Rover's Eastnor Castle estate in England. While Land Rover remains coy about whether it will launch here next year as a 2016 or 2017 model, Mike Cross, Chief Engineer did confirm "The Convertible for all seasons" possesses a full suite of advanced on- and off-road technologies that will ensure it lives up to the marque's legendary go-anywhere performance credentials.
Seen earlier this year rolling through the 26-mile Crossrail tunnel system that runs beneath the city of London, the Evoque Convertible shares most basic mechanicals with its hard-shell sibling. This new Range Rover also will retain the same structural rigidity courtesy of various internal modifications and be able to make its way through up to 19.7-inches of water, if necessary. Finally, the Terrain Response System in this new open-air Evoque variant is being tuned to ensure the Convertible delivers a "confident, fun and engaging dynamic driving experience on all surfaces." More information regarding the Range Rover Evoque Convertible will be released at its formal unveiling.
