The new Velar, which is the fourth offering from Range Rover, will slot in between the Evoque and the Sport.
The fourth product from Range Rover is here. Meet the Range Rover Velar. Built to slot in between the small Evoque and the Range Rover Sport, it’s name comes from the prototypes of the original Range Rover.
The design of the SUV is an evolution of Land Rover’s design language first seen on the fourth generation of the Range Rover. The Velar comes with copper detailing, Matrix-LED, LED tail lights and flush deployable door handles that retract into the door when not in use.
On the inside, the Range Rover Velar gets two high-definition touchscreens. The first screen is rake adjustable while the second screen is fixed in the centre console. It turns solid and opaque when not in use. This new system has replaced many of the traditional buttons. The instrument cluster is a 12.3-inch screen and comes in four modes including a 3D navigation mode.
The SUV is the first vehicle in the world to come with Premium Textile interior option. It combines highly durable wool-blend fabric with a suede cloth made from recycled materials. It can seat up to 5 people. The Velar also gets a 1600W Meridian Signature Sound System.
A proper Range Rover should not only be luxurious, but should also be equally capable off-road. To tick this box, the Velar gets all the toys required for it to accomplish the task. These include 251mm ground clearance, torque-on-demand AWD, electronic differential, All-Terrain Progress Control and Land Rover’s Terrain Response System 2. The SUV has a maximum wading ability of 650mm.
With a body made from lightweight aluminium, the new Velar gets six engine options. The vehicle will slot in between the Evoque and the Sport in the British brand’s lineup.
The Range Rover Velar will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show next week. We will be covering the event, so stay tuned.
