Land Rover didn’t have much going on this year at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, but they did introduce the new Range Rover Evoque Convertible for the first time on US soil.

Originally revealed earlier in the month, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible simply attempts to pickup where the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet left off, in terms of the oddball concept of a crossover convertible.

But unlike the Murano CrossCabriolet, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is significantly better looking and has a greater chance of appealing to the affluent masses–especially those who bathe in the near-perfect Southern Californian weather.

As a refresher, the Range Rover Evoque Cabriolet comes in two-door form only with a special Z-fold soft top that allows the fabric roof to sit flush with the body and away from sight, to keep the clean appearance of the Evoque when it comes to open-air motoring. It is also fully powered because, you know, those who want to be seen in any sort of Range Rover are often too bothered to deal with manual labor. It also actuates at up to speeds of 30 MPH and can be retracted in about 18 seconds, or it can be put up within 21.

Motivation is provided by a 2.0L turbocharged Ingenium four-pot with 240hp and 251 lb-ft of twist, allowing for a wide-open-throttle sprint to 60 in just 7.8 seconds from a standstill.

Check out our original post on the Range Rover Evoque Convertible and don’t forget to catch it at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show next week.

  • This Evoque roadster is a sleek looking beast all throughout. It also has the horsepower and torque to go with its outrageous looks. Quite an impressive ride! But I presume it can also hand the gust and turbulence on a high-speed cruise in a country road. Probably, it may require a Windblox wind deflector or something to rein in the turbulence if it gets too annoying!
