The Range Rover Evoque Convertible is being teased at regular intervals ahead of its world premiere next month. Recently the company displayed six 1:1 wireframe scale models of the topless crossover at prominent locations in London and now it has released a video of a camouflaged prototype easing its way through the famed off-road test track in Solihull, UK.
Land Rover says that open-top off-roading is not a new thing for the brand and hence the newest crossover convertible will offer uncompromising off-road capabilities. The video only adds gravity to the SUV specialist’s claim.

Like all the modern Land Rovers, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible comes equipped with Terrain Response System which senses the type of terrain and prepares the car’s behavior accordingly. Other noteworthy features include hill descent control, All Terrain Progress Control (helps the driver maintain a steady speed while off-roading), and a water wading capacity of 500 mm.
The vehicle which was earlier showcased as a near production concept will retain the hardtop version’s mechanicals. The car is likely to employ the Ingenium range of 2.0-litre turbo diesels and petrols, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or a 9-speed ZF automatic transmission.
