That’s right, the Velar.
It’s the new kid on the Range Rover block from Land Rover, sitting above the Evoque but below the Sport and the majestically luxurious Range Rover Autobiography.
It’s all unmistakably Range Rover but up to the minute modern and progressive. But with more than a nod to Land Rover heritage with the company’s renowned all-wheel drive ability available at the touch of a button.
Jaguar Land Rover managing director, Jeremy Hicks, said:
“The new Range Rover Velar is a stunning addition to the Range Rover family, it enhances a model line-up that originally defined the luxury SUV segment and continues to do so.
“Velar brings increased choice to new and existing customers in a growing SUV market. It leads the way in terms of design, usable technology, new materials and of course Land Rover’s legendary go anywhere, do anything capability.
“The whole team is enormously excited about bringing the new Range Rover Velar to customers across the UK.”
Velar’s design is certainly visually arresting. From its powerful proportions to its continuous waist line through to the taut tapered lines of the rear. The generous wheelbase contributes significantly to its elegance while helping to provide a spacious interior.
Large alloy wheels – in particular the range of 22-inch designs – optimise the vehicle’s stunning silhouette, while further enhancing Velar’s dramatic presence.
There’s plenty of advanced technology present:
- slender full-LED headlights; and
- flush deployable door handles.
Inside switches are kept to a minimum to create, says Land Rover, a calm sanctuary. And there’s the opportunity to choose an alternative to leather, a sustainable premium textile design.
Design-enabling technology has been engaged fully to create the new Touch Pro Duo infotainment system which is the centrepiece of Velar’s interior.
Touch Pro Duo features two 10-inch high-definition touchscreens integrated behind secret-until-lit surfaces.
All of this is equalled by Velar’s practicality: luggage compartment volume is an impressive 632 litres.
The new Ranger Rover Velar features a sophisticated all-wheel drive system, four-corner air suspension (available on 300PS Diesel and 380PS Petrol engines), class-leading ground clearance of up to 251mm (213mm with coil springs), class-leading wading depth of up to 650mm (600mm with coil springs) and Land Rover’s unmatched suite of traction technologies including Terrain Response 2 (optional) and All Terrain Progress Control (optional). Velar – like all Range Rovers – offers world-class all-terrain capability.
Engines for the new Velar
Powering the new Velar is a range of six petrol and diesel powertrains, matched to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmissions and all-wheel drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics.
- There are two four-cylinder Ingenium diesels in 180PS and 240PS variants, with 142g/km and 154g/km CO2 emissions respectively
- Advanced four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine delivers 250PS and 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds. An even more powerful, 300PS version of this engine will join the Velar range later in the year.
- The V6 diesel develops a whopping 700Nm with CO2 emissions of 167g/km.
- The 380PS supercharged V6 petrol engine blasts to 60mph in only 5.3 seconds. CO2 emissions are 214g/km
Velar specifications – including special First Edition
The Velar and Velar R-Dynamic core range comprises Standard, S, SE or HSE specifications. There will also be Black and Luxury Exterior Packs to enhance the Velar’s appearance.
Of all Velar models, the most exclusive of all will be the First Edition, which be available worldwide but strictly for one model year only. Even more luxurious than the HSE specification, this model is powered solely by the 3.0-litre V6 petrol and diesel engines and features a wealth of extra features as standard, including full extended leather interior trim to complement the perforated Windsor leather seats in Nimbus or Ebony, 1,600W Meridian Signature Sound System, Matrix-Laser LED headlights and 22-inch Split-Spoke wheels with diamond-turned finish.
Exterior paint colours for the First Edition are Corris Grey, Silicon Silver, and Flux Silver – a unique satin finish exclusive to the First Edition for the first model year only – which will be hand-sprayed at Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations’ Oxford Road Technical Centre in the UK.
Designed and engineered at Jaguar Land Rover’s development centres in the UK, Velar will be produced at the company’s Solihull production facility, UK.
The Range Rover Velar goes on sale in mid-July.
