Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

Sports leather seats come as standard and there’s plenty of leather-effect material covering the dash and doors, making the interior look and feel an attractive place to sit. It all feels well screwed together for the most part, too.

The entry-level SE Dynamic trim comes with eight-way electric seat adjustment but no lumbar support – for that you need to move up to HSE Dynamic, which gets you 12-way electrically adjustable seats. Despite large side bolsters the seats don’t hold you particularly well through corners but otherwise are comfortable, and with a good range of adjustment to the steering wheel it’s easy to find a driving position that suits.

Being an SUV, the driving position is much higher than you’d normally get in a drop-top. Not only does this mean you get a commanding view of the road, it also allows you and your passengers to enjoy fully a panoramic view with the roof down – it can be opened or closed at speeds up to 30mph.

The latest version of Incontrol Touch Pro, Land Rover's touchscreen infotainment system, comes as standard. This has a 10in wide display with fairly clear icons and graphics. It’s reasonably easy to navigate through the menus, but not as intuitive as BMW’s iDrive system in the 4 Series.

Unfortunately there’s no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility for your smartphone, though. Instead, you have to download an app to hook one up, and while this works reasonably well, it can be sluggish at times.
