Jaguar Land Rover has launched the Range Rover Evoque Convertible in India. Carrying a sticker price of Rs 69.53 lakh (ex-showroom), it has the distinction of being the only SUV convertible in the market. The Evoque Convertible shares its underpinnings with the standard Evoque, but instead of a five-door layout, this one comes with a 3-door configuration with a slightly smaller boot. It comes with a retractable soft-top that is acoustically insulated and can fold flush in 18 seconds. The SUV also features a wind deflector that helps to reduce the air draft when driving with the top down. Also, for additional safety, the SUV gets a pop-up roll bar which deploys in case of an accident.
The Evoque Convertible is available in only one variant – HSE Dynamic. Power to all four wheels will be received from the 2-litre Si4 petrol motor that makes 237 bhp and 43.84 kgm. And paired with a 9-speed automatic gearbox, it will help the Evoque accelerate from 0-100 kph in 9 seconds and achieve a top speed of 195 kph.
For the feature-list, this SUV convertible gets 18-inch alloy wheels, Adaptive LED headlamps, ambient lighting, navigation, InControl Touch Pro Navigation system and a Meridian 10 speaker surround sound system.
Jaguar Land Rover India’s MD and President, Rohit Suri said, “We are excited to launch India’s first luxury SUV convertible today. The Range Rover Evoque Convertible combines the bold design and refinement of Evoque with a sophisticated folding roof. It adds another dimension to the Land Rover family, further enhancing its desirability and appeal.”
