Watch the Range Rover Evoque Convertible Go Off-Road Testing

5

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.

    The word “premium” is used pretty vaguely in the car segment xD

    Does this one have the ball joints as big as a soccer ball. My 88 rangie, 95 rangie, and 98 Disco all had ones like that. Its a great line of cars. I don’t have one now. I sold my home and don’t have the shop to maintain them. I thought of opening up a car lot and only selling them with all of the mods done already.

    OK I’ve seen too much of this mild stuff. I’ve driven Series II in the seventies and owned a Rangie. Why do these ads not show really knarly off-road. Not fast but difficult. My 2002 Grand Cherokee can do all that on the video, but there is lots it cannot (save the hill descent feature – can you spell ‘brake’..), while my P38 could.
