Land Rover has released a video of an unusual sight: A camouflaged Range Rover Evoque Convertible undergoing off-road testing.
Of course, Land Rovers are known for their ability to go anywhere and drive through pretty much any terrain, and it seems that the British automaker wants to make sure its first convertible compact SUV lives up to the brand’s high standards for off-roading.
Land Rover says the “world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible” will be the “the most capable convertible in the world” after it successfully completed the company’s punishing off-road testing regime. The video reveals that the Evoque Convertible will have hill descent control, excellent body rigidity, “uncompromised wheel articulation,” terrain response with different driving modes, four-wheel drive, all-terrain progress control, and the ability to wade through water half a meter deep. The dashboard was heavily cloaked, so we’ll have to wait to get a better look at the interior.
The Range Rover Evoque Convertible will be fully revealed in November at the L.A. Auto Show and go on sale in the U.K. in spring 2016.
