In a press release today, Land Rover unveiled the latest version of the popular Range Rover Evoque. While it features the same luxurious trappings the British automaker has become known for, there is one major difference between the new Evoque and models past – this one is a convertible.
Yes, you read that right. In a YouTube video accompanying the release, Land Rover set the scene for the new compact convertible SUV against the picturesque backdrop of Santa Monica, California. In the video, the Evoque shares the spotlight with fellow Brit Naomie Harris, the actress who recently reprised her role as Moneypenny in “Spectre,” the 24th installment of the James Bond film series.[youtube id=”FlqXbobbtkQ” align=”center” mode=”normal” autoplay=”no” maxwidth=”680″]
Making its official debut in the US at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, the Evoque Convertible is the best of both worlds between a convertible and SUV. The four-seat design sits inside the convertible’s elegant interior with ample room for versatile storage. But don’t be fooled by the car’s interior charm. This is still very much a rough-and-tumble Range Rover, capable of both on and off-road excursions. With an intricate folding roof design, the SUV is truly an all-season vehicle, a rare find compared to most convertibles.
The eloquent Ms. Harris agrees. “I was so impressed by the design of this car; it’s like nothing I’ve seen on the road before and is so sleek! I love the fact that it is just as much at home driving down the Pacific Coast Highway in LA, as it is off-road in the British Countryside,” she stated in the press release.
Already heralded as the fastest-selling Land Rover of all time, the latest twist on the Evoque is sure to make an impression on the US market.
