Elegant simplicity, a visually reductive approach and pioneering consumer technology are the hallmarks of the new Range Rover Velar. Designed to fill the space between the Evoque and the Sport, it offers high levels of luxury, refinement and all-terrain capability.
The design is beautifully balanced, from its powerful proportions to its continuous waistline through to the taut tapered lines of the rear, its makers say. The large alloy wheels – in particular the range of 22-inch designs – optimise the vehicle’s silhouette, while further enhancing its dramatic presence.
The interior is just as impressive thanks to the designer’s belief in reductionism, which sees the use of switches being kept to an absolute minimum. The Touch Pro Duo infotainment system integrates two 10-inch high-definition touchscreens. You can use Touch Pro Duo together with the optional full-colour Head-Up Display and optional Interactive Driver Display to simultaneously view and interact with multiple features.
The vehicle has been developed to meet the most demanding crash test regulations worldwide. Combined with a comprehensive restraints system that includes six airbags, and a suite of advanced driver assistance systems, including Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist and an Adaptive Speed Limiter, the Velar integrates the latest safety technology.
Performance and efficiency come from the range of six petrol and diesel powertrains, all mated to ZF eight-speed automatic transmissions and all-wheel drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics.
