Tussling for space between the mopeds and buses, we had the top down to enjoy every moment of the late-summer sun. The fully-automated roof stows in 18 seconds, and can be raised in 21 seconds, at speeds up to 30mph.
Crossing Westminster Bridge we had the privilege of the best views in town.
Thankfully, the Evoque Convertible is underpinned by Land Rover’s world-class all-terrain capability.
So from the sunny – and rather busy – streets of London we finally joined the motorway where the car’s power came into play.
Easy to drive, the journey was a pleasure – I was able to relax and let the car do the hard work.
Coming off the motorway to head into Bath the roads quickly changed from perfect tarmac smooth motorway to tough and winding country roads.
But the car didn’t blink – it handled the corners with great ease – and there’s nothing better than watching the rolling hills of green pass you by in a car you feel comfortable driving.
