While not the most practical crossover SUV, the 2015 Range Rover Evoque has loads of style, refined driving manners and, now, the ability to let the sun in.

Pros

Stylish cabin; plenty of standard features; refined ride quality; punchy and efficient engine.

Cons

Limited cargo space in standard model, likely even less in the convertible; entry level's high cost of entry.

What's New for 2015

The 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque convertible is an all-new model.

Introduction

Wasn't hard to see this coming. The Baby Rover has been a breakout star for Land Rover, a relatively affordable gateway into the aura of British luxury and off-road tradition. We assume Land Rover allowed itself a window to weather any backlash from the compact hardtop before committing to the 2015 Evoque convertible. But the drop top got the green light, and not a moment too soon for sun-and-scene stations like Southern California, Miami and New York.

The Range Rover Evoque convertible will offer just two doors (the hardtop offers both two- and four-door configurations) and an electrically powered fabric top that folds beneath the Evoque's waistline for a clean top-down look. The fabric top and rollover protection mechanisms consume cabin space, however, limiting the convertible to just two rear passengers. The convertible doesn't incur a substantial weight penalty, however. It requires 165 pounds of structural reinforcement, says Land Rover.

The convertible will offer the same 240-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and six-speed automatic transmission as the standard car, although a nine-speed transmission under development could arrive in time for the Evoque convertible's launch. And while the standard Evoque features all-wheel drive and Land Rover's Terrain Response System for legitimate off-road capability, the convertible base model may come standard with front-wheel drive and leave the off-road chops as a premium upgrade.

Land Rover debuted the Evoque convertible concept at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show and suggested a 10-15 percent price premium over the hardtop. Look for the convertible to start at around $48,000 when it goes on sale, likely in the second half of 2014.
