Range Rover Evoque Convertible confirmed, will go on sale in 2016 [video & photos]

Land Rover has confirmed that the Range Rover Evoque Convertible will go on sale in 2016.

This compact SUV convertible that is also billed as the first premium compact SUV convertible is currently going through final testing and is also the first vehicle to have driven Crossrail tunnels below London.

The prototype in the video below demonstrates Evoque Convertible’s capability in underground surroundings, below the streets of London.

Forty metres below the streets, the first prototype of Land Rover’s new Range Rover Evoque Convertible was granted exclusive access to the 26-mile network of Crossrail tunnels for a development test with a difference. Engineers were allowed the opportunity to drive the disguised Evoque Convertible with its roof lowered in complete privacy.

Engine line-up and latest technologies are expected to carryover from the recently unveiled Evoque facelift.
