Months after its 2015 LA Auto Show world premiere, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is being showcased in European specification at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The world’s first luxury compact crossover convertible is also the world’s most capable all-terrain convertible as per Land Rover’s claims. It’s a soft-top convertible with a fully-automated roof which stows in 18 seconds and can be raised in 21 seconds, at speeds up to 30 mph (48.28 km/h).

Announcing the open-top version in November last year, the company said that its fabric roof “is the longest and widest currently fitted to any vehicle on sale today.” It packs itself neatly using a Z-fold mechanism. The convertible version offers 251 litres of boot space. It debuts Jaguar Land Rover’s new generation InControl Touch Pro infotainment system in a Land Rover. There’s an all-new high-resolution 10.2-inch touchscreen display with that.
