Land Rover has officially unveiled its Range Rover Evoque Convertible, a car it describes as the world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible.

Based on the Evoque coupe, the convertible version ditches the fixed metal roof in favour of a folding fabric roof. The first time a convertible has joined the Range Rover line-up.

“Range Rover Evoque Convertible is a vehicle for all seasons. Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s design director said.

“Its uniquely distinctive design and world-class engineering adds another dimension to the Range Rover family, further enhancing its desirability and appeal.”

The Z-fold roof is able to be lowered in just 18 seconds, or raised in 21 seconds at speeds of up to 50km/h. When open the roof lays flush with the rear bodywork, maintaining the Evoque’s clean lines.

The interior picks up Jaguar Land Rover’s new InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, with a 10.2 inch display, including smartphone integration, satellite navigation, and a premium sound system.

Safety is bolstered by the addition of two aluminum roll over bars at the rear of the vehicle, which can be deployed in 90 milliseconds in the event of a roll over.

Two engines will be offered in Australia, with either a 177kW Si4 petrol or a 2.0 litre diesel from JLR’s new range of Ingenium engines. Both engines come teamed with a nine-speed automatic and all wheel drive.

Land Rover’s off-road capabilities won't be diminished, with selectable Terrain Response, wade sensing, and all terrain progress control available on the convertible.

Boot space measures 251 litres, with a top-hinged giving access to the cargo bay.

Two high-end specifications will be offered, SE Dynamic, and HSE Dynamic, with both powertrains on offer for each. The range starts at $84,440 for the SE Dynamic Td4-180, putting the Evoque $3360 above the current range-topping Prestige Si4 Coupe.

Sales of the Evoque convertible are schedules to start in the third quarter of 2016.

Pricing

SE Dynamic Td4-180 $84,835
SE Dynamic S14 $84,440
HSE Dynamic Td4-180 $92,410
HSE Dynamic Si4 $92,015
