While you may think that a convertible is only for the summer, Land Rover has come up with something that will allow you to drop the top during all seasons. Meet the all-new Range Rover Evoque Convertible, an all-wheel-drive convertible crossover that you can drive all year round.
Like the Range Rover Evoque, its convertible cousin is powered by the same 240-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The powertrain also consists of a ZF nine-speed automatic transmission that pushes the power to an all-wheel-drive system. The fully-automated roof on the Range Rover Evoque Convertible comes down in just 18 seconds, and can be raised in 21 seconds. The convertible roof can be operated at speeds of up to 29 miles per hour.
You may think that being a drop top the Range Rover Evoque Convertible doesn’t have that much balance and firm footing on uneven terrain. Well, because the Range Rover Evoque Convertible comes with Land Rover’s Terrain Response, the model feels more firm in a range of terrain or weather conditions.
