New Cars 2016: Land Rover / Range Rover


Land Rover/Range Rover’s second soft-top SUV is a fashionable baby crossover with 240hp

What: Range Rover Evoque Convertible
When: TBA
How much: TBA

Based on the swoopy Range Rover Evoque, it has a cloth top that folds electrically. It works on the move (at up to 50km/h) and takes 18 seconds to drop and 21 seconds to raise.

It will be launched with a 2.0-litre turbodiesel and turbo petrol engines. The 240 horsepower petrol version takes 8.6 seconds to get to 100km/h.

The only thing that comes to mind was the Nissan Murano Convertible, which was universally loathed, but Range Rover has done a soft-top before, so there’s hope yet.
