The strikingly minimalist dashboard architecture contrasts the bold horizontal sweep of the instrument panel with the dynamic vertical rake of the center console.

Interior volumes are among the very best when compared with conventional convertibles. The luggage compartment provides 8.9-cu. ft. (251-liters) of storage space with the roof open or closed. A ski hatch can be specified to accommodate through-loading of larger items for additional versatility.

SE Dynamic derivatives feature perforated grained leather seats in a sophisticated Ebony/Ebony dual-tone colorway. HSE Dynamic introduces a perforated mid-section Oxford leather seat finished with an elegantly tailored center-ribbed section, available in Ebony/Ebony and Lunar/Ivory color combinations. HSE Dynamic also offers three exclusive colorways in full Oxford leather; Ebony/Pimento, Ebony/Vintage Tan and Lunar/Ice combinations. Luxurious 12-way electric memory seats (heated optional) are standard on SE Dynamic and HSE Dynamic models; an optional 14-way climate seat can also be specified.

Technological innovation is also integral part of the unique appeal of the Range Rover Evoque. Building on this trend, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible evolves the line-up’s in-car technology with the debut of the all-new Land Rover InControl® Touch Pro™ infotainment system with available Connected Navigation.

Land Rover designers have retained the bold and progressive exterior design of the Range Rover Evoque with the convertible roof system open or closed. A sophisticated fabric roof with tension-bow architecture creates a defined silhouette that remains faithful to the original design of the vehicle, while the Z-fold mechanism folds flush with the rear bodywork for a sleek, uncluttered appearance. New frameless doors have also been developed to ensure a clean profile when the roof is stowed.

A dynamic front grille with enlarged geometric mesh area, vent surrounds and a selection of six alloy wheel designs and finishes, ranging from 18- to 20-inches adds further design differentiation between convertible and fixed-roof models. Unique for the 20-inch alloy wheels are two premium finishes; Polished and Satin Black. For those needing additional practicality, a variety of tow hitch accessories are available; allowing The Range Rover Evoque Convertible to tow up to 3,307-lbs. (1500kg).

The LED headlamps feature a new, highly-distinctive design for both headlamp and indicator functions. LED technology is designed to offer increased visibility, enhanced longevity, and reduces demands on the battery, while the adaptive functionality enables the headlamps to automatically follow the driver’s steering inputs, increasing light coverage through corners.

The available Black Pack provides an even more dramatic road presence with unique Satin Black 20-inch alloy wheels, head-, tail- and fog-lamps featuring black non-reflective surfaces, exterior trim finished in Narvik Black and a black exhaust tailpipe finish. The Range Rover Evoque Convertible is available in 13 exterior colors, including new Baltoro Ice and Waitomo Grey metallic.
