Land Rover has confirmed that the Range Rover Evoque Convertible will head for production and go on sale in 2016.
A couple of images of a moderately camouflaged prototype vehicle, have also been released with this announcement. The prototype vehicle’s front fascia and side profile are still based on the outgoing Evoque rather than the facelifted Evoque. However, the production version would be based on the facelifted Evoque and get all the latest styling cues, equipments and updated features.
New features seen on the facelifted Evoque include full LED adaptive headlights, restyled front bumper, larger air intakes, option of two front grille designs, restyled sideview mirrors, fresh alloy wheel designs, new tailgate spoiler and new tail lamp design. The production version would have a 2+2 seating arrangement and a soft-top retractable roof and like in the test mule spied earlier, may feature a wing spoiler at the rear.
Further details about the new premium compact SUV in its convertible version will be announced later this year, most likely with the unveiling of the production-spec model. The Evoque Convertible will be built alongside the 5- and 3-door Evoque at Jaguar Land Rover’s Halewood plant in the UK.
